Truffol Starts Selling Reversible USB Lightning Cables for $9.99, Win One Here [CONTEST]


We get a tonne of emails daily from various companies in Asia flogging their shoddy iPhone parts, but the following from Truffol caught our eye.


With all the hype currently surrounding reversible USB Lightning cables, the company says they’re already available for sale on their website, for $9.99 USD, which includes free worldwide shipping from their base in Hong Kong. These are standard length cables at 1 metre (3.3 feet) and support 2.4A of juice so it can charge an iPad.

So, to put their money where their mouth is, we asked them to ship us a cable for a hands-on and to also give one away to our readers to check out as well. They agreed—so here we are.

How to enter this contest?

We’ll make this an easy one. Leave a comment below and we’ll announce a winner on Monday morning in an update to this post. Happy Friday!

Good luck—you could be one of the first to use a reversible USB Lightning cable, but of course, it most likely is non-MFi certified, so be wary. It might make for a great party trick though!

Update: Congrats to our random winner–Andy. Please email us with your full mailing address to: contests @

Update 2: We didn’t hear back from our first winner. Congrats to FragilityG4. Email us your contact details so we can forward them to Truffol.

    Gary, how did the “hands-on” testing go? Does it actually work?

  • andrewe

    They arrived today. Here’s my mini review: Hard to get in/out. Fit is too tight. Terribly pointless.
