Baseus’s Maruko Video Cable is quite clever. Usually charging cables are an afterthought, but this USB charging and data transfer cable is quite cleverly designed, turning into a stand-of-sorts for your smartphone, propping it up as it charges it. With a plastic casing around the charging port that extends down the length of the cable, it acts as a third point of contact, holding your phone up in landscape mode, allowing you to watch videos or play games while charging. Its circular head design detail is pretty neat too, as it allows for easy gripping and pushing, making working with the cable a tad bit easier. I’m pretty sure no one’s ever thought of this before…!
