While the Apple side of the smartphone divide gets by with 30-pins, Lightning cables and whatever else is next, the saner parts of the gadget-toting world gets on quite well with Micro USB for it's charging and data transfer needs.
To that end, this deal for a long, two-metre Micro USB cable (in attractive blue) should appeal to many. Normally costing closer to a tenner, today the Belkin-made lead only costs £5.99, from serial discounters Amazon. The length is the big selling-point: no one like faffing about with a too-short lead.
