TYLT FLYP-DUO a reversible USB cable for your Android or iOS device

FLYP-DUO

I’ve had the opportunity to review TYLT products before and one thing I can say is that they make high-quality products. The FLYP-DUO is no exception.

FLYP-DUO overview

The FLYP-DUO features a flat cable that makes it nearly impossible to get tangled up in your bag or pocket. The cable itself is made from a soft touch rubber that feels great in your hand.

The cable also comes with a lightning adapter that will allow you to use it with any device that has either a micro-USB port or lightning port. This is a great feature for those who use both iOS and Android devices.

One of the best features is that the PC end of the USB cable is reversible. This allows you to plug the cable into a USB port without having to pay attention to what direction you plug it in. Unfortunately, the micro USB side is not reversible. Making the micro USB end reversible would be the only way to improve the FLYP-DUO.

Speaking of the micro USB connector, I really loved the how it fit into the female micro USB port. It fit snuggly, but not too snuggly.

FLYP-DUO setup

There’s really nothing to set up. Take it out of the box and plug it in.

FLYP-DUO usage

This is by far my favorite USB cable. I unplug the USB cable and take it with me in my backpack when I commute from home to work. The quality is A+.

One of the things that I like about the cable is that because of it’s flat design and high-quality rubber, you don’t have to worry too much about rolling over it with your chair. Which does happen quite frequently while I’m at work. This only occurs when I unplug a device and forget to move the cable.

What we liked:

  • Reversible USB connector
  • Soft touch rubber
  • Flat cable design
  • Lightning adapter

What could be better:

  • Cheaper price
  • Reversible micro-USB connector

FLYP-DUO summary

Overall this is a great cable. It’s a tad bit expensive for my taste, but it’s worth every penny when you take into account the quality that you are getting.

You can purchase the cable on Amazon starting at $24.95.
