Aleratec Unveils New Lighting to USB Snake Cables for iPads, iPhones and iPods

Chatsworth, CA, December 29, 2014 – Aleratec Inc., award-winning designer, developer and manufacturer of Portable Device Management (PDM) charge/sync products for mobile devices and professional-grade duplicators for hard disk drives, USB flash drives and Blu-ray/DVD/CD discs, is introducing two Lightning to USB Snake Cables for iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches. The cables streamline the charging and syncing process by allowing users to connect four or five devices to any multi-port USB charging or syncing station, cabinet or cart using a single, pre-labeled cable.

"Charging and syncing multiple electronic devices can be a frustrating process because each device requires its own cable and it can be difficult to keep track of what cable goes where," says Perry Solomon, President and CEO of Aleratec. "With more schools and other organizations deploying tablets, accessories such as snake cables go a long way in helping to keep deployment smooth and organized."

Ideal for IT managers or educators responsible for deploying numerous iPads or other Lightning-charged devices, Aleratec Lightning to USB Snake Cables are pre-labeled so users know exactly which connection goes to which port, and because one cable handles multiple devices, the number of charging cables to keep track of is vastly reduced. The snake cables will also sync devices when connected to a USB port on a computer. Features include:

  • Eliminates cable confusion when charging multiple devices
  • Pre-labeled for more efficient deployment
  • The idea accessory for multi-device charge/sync stations, cabinets or carts

  • Aleratec Lightning to USB Snake Cables for iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touches connect to any multi-port USB charger or computer USB port and are available in 4-device or 5-device configurations.
