boltbox

Folks looking to pick up a new Lightning charging cable might want to check out Scosche’s latest iOS accessory. The California-based company introduced the ‘boltBOX’ today, a new colorful USB charging cable for all of your Lightning devices.

What makes the boltBOX better than your average Apple USB Lightning cable? Well, aside from the fact that it comes in a variety of different colors, it features an innovative retractable design that neatly stores its 3-foot cable when not in use…

From the boltBOX press release:

Retractable Cable Design

The retractable design lets you neatly charge and sync your devices. boltBOX extends up to 3 feet. This is the perfect solution for on-the-go lifestyles. Magnetic connectors stay in place when the cable is retracted.

Compact And Portable

An ultra compact design ensures that boltBOX goes wherever you go.  It fits nicely in your pocket, backpack, purse or luggage.

Slim Barrel Design Works With Any Case

This cable features a slim barrel and connector so you can charge and sync your device when using a case (even beefy/bulky cases). It has been designed to work with the larger and more protective cases.

Made For:

iPod touch (5th generation), iPod nano (7th generation), iPhone 5, iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini

And here’s your customary launch video:

I actually think this is a cool little accessory, particularly for travel-use, as the retractable design means the cable won’t get tangled in a purse or backpack. Perhaps more importantly, the boltBOX carries the MFi badge, meaning it’s certified by Apple.

If you’re interested, you can find the boltBOX on Scosche’s website for $24.99.
