iPhone 4evah Sale Going On Now!

BLOG-IPHONE-4EVAH

Hot on the heels of introducing the first-ever Lightning connector cable to CableJive, the Lightlinez XS by Kenbug, we’re also remembering that most of the iPhones, iPads, and iPods in use today are unable to take advantage of these new connector accessories. We got our start working with the 30-pin connector, and this week we’re getting back in touch with our roots.

Starting today, we’re giving everyone the option to save 20% off all our 30-pin iPhone, iPad, & iPod accessories, including some of our all-time most popular products like the dockXtender, dockStubz, xlSync, & more! To get the deal, simply add any of the products you want that are found on our special “iPhone 4evah” page into your shopping cart, then click the banner at the bottom of the cart page before you checkout to apply your discount code.

Whether you just scored an iPhone 4 or 4S on the cheap, or you upgraded already but you know a few people who haven’t yet, it’s never been cheaper or easier to score some of the best 30-pin accessories ever.

Lightning to 30-pin Adapter Compatibility

Now that the official Lightning to 30-pin adapters are out, more than a few of you will be anxiously testing to see if your favorite 30-pin accessories will be compatible with your new iDevices. Well, if your favorite accessories include CableJive products (and why wouldn’t they), then we have some good news for you. We got our adapters in, along with a shiny new iPod Nano, and in our tests we encountered no issues with any of our existing products. So for the legions of you losing sleep wondering if you’ll still be able to use your dockStubz, or any other CableJive product with your new lightning-equipped iDevices, you can now rest easy. Provided you have an adapter, of course.

50% OFF All Certified Pre-Opened Products!

We just launched our re-designed “Certified Pre-Opened” section, and to kick things off we’re selling all available pre-opened products at 50% OFF regular MSRP! If you’re looking to score great CableJive products on-the-cheap, now is definitely the time!

We regularly get inventory returned to us that was opened, but remains in practically-new, perfect working condition. Unlike others who may try to sell those units as brand-new (we’re looking at you throngs of shady eBay cable pushers), we take a more honest approach. We put them to the test just to be sure, and if they pass, then you get to buy them at a significant discount. It’s as simple as that.

Due to the limited and ever-changing nature of this inventory, available products and quantities change daily. Be sure to check back often so you don’t miss out on any deals!

Word on the street is, the iPad is pretty popular these days. Which is why I’m happy to announce that our dualCharge has been updated for iPad support! Now charge an iPad, or two smaller USB powered electronic devices (iPod, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc) at the same time with one powerful plug. It’s the perfect solution for all your home-charging needs!

These updated dualCharges are available now.

Cable Wranglin’

Being a company that sells cables, we understand that when you acquire (and frequently use) many cables, things can get a bit out of hand (tangled in some cases, chaos in others). Thankfully, we also have the cable management side of things covered, with CableDrops, CableClips, and the Cableyoyo. While there are certainly some beautiful product photos up there, I figured I’d throw up a “real world” pic of all the ones I use fairly regularly. They’re super handy if you find yourself dealing with cable-mess. Also, the Nest snuck in there for good measure, as it’s always right on my desk as well.

Attn: Micro USB Devices, You’ve Been CableJive’d

Listen-up all you Android, Blackberry, Kindle, Nook, or any other type of Micro USB connected device users! We’ve finally made our first official foray into your world, and hopefully we can make life a little easier for you. Our smash hit iStubz and xlSync cables are now available for your devices too! Need a super-short charge and sync cable for travel? Look no further than the CableJive-official microStubz cable. Or, are you on the other end, and need extra length? Then the xlSync for Micro USB is your answer. What’s that you say? You need a regular length cable?! Well, we have those too, but their less exciting.

They’re all on sale right now and available on the CableJive store and Amazon. We’re pretty fired up about these, and we hope they can help as many people (or more) as their older brothers did. (Or is it cousins? Cable family trees are confusing).

Updated xlSync and iPad Charging

You may recall back in April, when we announced the updates to our xlSync cable. These included some minor external and internal upgrades, but the most important change we made improved the compatibility of these new cables with the iPad and iPad 2 devices.

We initially designed the xlSync cable before the launch of the first iPad. It worked great with all iPods and iPhones already, and in our tests it seemed to work well with the iPad also. However, over the months we continued getting reports from some customers that the xlSync cable wasn’t charging their iPads as well as they’d hoped. Long story short, our team was able to isolate that issue, and resolve it with these newly designed cables.

To confirm these new xlSync cables perform exactly as they should, we put one head-to-head against the standard sync cable that came with the iPad. In this test, we connected an iPad and iPad 2 to their OEM power bricks (which were both connected to the same power strip. This can be seen in the photo above). The iPad 2 was charging via it’s OEM sync cable, and the iPad 1 was charging via the brand new updated xlSync cable. After 45 minutes of charging here were the results:

iPad 2 charging w/ standard sync cable:   +14%
iPad 1 charging w/ updated xlSync cable: +14%

There you have it. More than double the length of the standard cable, and you lose none of the charging power. Both the white and black xlSync cables have received this update, and are now available to purchase for your iPad (or any other i-device) charging pleasure.
