After speaking to the nice guys from Adam Elements, they sent me a couple of products to test and one of my favourites so far has to be the PeAk Duo Cable, a 2 in 1 sync and charge cable for Apple lightning and micro USB devices.
They also sent me a Lightning Cable Du-Plug 90 which is effectively the same cable with a few changes which I am going to be giving away, details on how to enter can be found at the bottom of the article.
The detail that separates the PeAk duo cable from the rest is that it has both a lightning connector, compatible with the most recent Apple devices, and a micro USB connector which is standard on most other electrical devices.
Using the cable is very simple, it is effectively a micro USB cable with a flexible connector that keeps the lightning adaptor within reach.
When wanting to use the lightning adaptor, simply plugging the micro USB into the back of the adaptor is all it takes.
Metallic Braid Design
Adam Elements have really thought about the design of the PeAk duo, and the small details are what make the difference.
First of all the 120cm long cable is tightly braided, offering good protection to the elements whilst still being flexible, during my usage the braiding has not frayed at all.
Secondly, the USB connector is reversible, meaning it can be plugged into any USB port either way.
To top it all off the reversible USB connector and the lightning connector are both metal, in this case a space grey aluminium colour which really works well with my space grey iPhone.
It is also important to note that the cable is MFI certified (Made for iPhone) and is covered by a 1 year warranty by Adam Elements.
Sync & Charge
I have previously seen cables and adaptors in the past that claimed to be dual purpose however there was always caveats. The PeAk Duo however allows not only charging with an iPhone but also full sync capabilities.
I tested the cable on a Windows 7 PC using a standard USB 2.0 port and through a USB-C adaptor on my Macbook, the iPhone was detected instantly and appeared in iTunes within a couple of seconds.
Backup and Sync speeds appear to be standard which is to be expected.
As always I look forward to reading your comments and answering any questions in the dedicated section below.
As mentioned at the beginning of the article I am going to be giving away an Adam Elements Lightning Cable Du-Plug 90 which is effectively the same cable without the metallic braid design.
