Show us your low profile iDevice to USB cables and recommend a good one.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
The purpose of this thread is to show and compare low profile iDevice to USB solutions.
Cables in the portable market are getting as specialized, expensive and as prone to hype and skulduggery as the full sized cable market, it seems.
Cables obviously serve a cosmetic as well as functional role and all sorts of fun and innovative offerings have appeared.

My holy grail is a reliable super low profile iDevice to USB cable with both ends exiting the cable at right angles to save space and avoid damage in use.

This one cost me $85 from an Ebay dealer in Indonesia and stopped working after two flights.



What do you use?

VERY nice cable. Looks like it was custom made-to-order with barely a millimeter to spare.

I like. A lot.

Are there any commercially available cables in this configuration? This would really cut down on the bulkiness of my portable rig!

Yup Qusp.  I have several cables from him and all TOP notch quality and custom built to order, i.e. length, right angle, left angle, type of wire, type of plug.  Totally has my faith and recommendation for ANY needs that I have as far as LODs and cables.  Pics of mine coming soon.

Here's a nice looking one from Venturecraft but at $165 from amazon.com it's priced in what I call the silly-money bracket .

 

There simply has to be better and more economical options out there.

I received this one from TTVJ today.

It's well built, decently low profile and does an admirable job for a very reasonable fee.

I picked up one of those from a head-fier and am quite happy so far. Cable us not too long and it's definitely low profile.
I hate too much cable sticking out of my brick so have been quite pleased with this one.
