Metal Magnetic Micro USB Data Charging Cable
WSKEN is a Chinese maker of magnetic USB cables that enable you to quickly hook up your phone or tablet to a charging cable without you trying to find the USB port on your phone, figuring out which way the cable fits and potentially scratching the phone in the process.
