Aleratec Introduces Micro USB Snake Cables for Charging and Syncing Multiple Tablets, Smartphones or Other Devices

Chatsworth, CA, December 30, 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 Micro USB Snake Cables for multiple tablets, smartphones other USB to Micro USB-charged devices. The two varieties of snake cables connect either four or five devices to any multi-port USB charging station, cabinet or cart so multiple devices can be charged with one, easy-to-manage cable rather than a separate cable for each device.

"Our Micro USB snake cable puts an end to cable confusion," notes Perry Solomon, President and CEO of Aleratec. "Rather than having to keep track of 10, 20 or more charging cables, snake cables reduce the number to just a few and offer a simpler way to charge numerous devices."

Designed for educators, administrators and others responsible for deploying tablets and smartphones on the job or in the classroom, Aleratec Micro USB Snake Cables are pre-labeled to avoid confusion over which connection goes to which port. Plus, the number of charging cables needed is reduced because one cable can charge four or five devices at once, making it an ideal accessory for business travelers who rely on multiple portable electronics devices. The Micro USB Snake Cables also sync devices when connected to USB ports on a computer.

Features include:
  • Streamlined deployment and reduced cable clutter
  • Pre-labeled for precise cable management
  • Perfect for multi-device charge/sync stations, cabinets or carts

  • Aleratec Micro USB Snake Cables for tablets and smartphones connect to any multi-port USB charger or computer USB ports and are available in 4-device or 5-device configurations.
