Genuine Apple USB Plug Adapter and USB Cable £8.09 @ Play

6 February 2012

I'm buying LOTS of these genuine Apple USB plug adapters and cables because there are few things that irritate me more than my phone and/iPod batteries going flat.

My entire office is on my phone - which is a little scary really - along with thousands of songs and almost one thousand photos and videos, let alone all the contact and diary information that it holds too.

As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time using it and even employing all the battery saving tips I know, it still goes through power like you wouldn't believe so I like to be able to charge it and use it at the same time - which is why I opted for plugs and USB cables, rather than a couple of docking stations.

Genuine Apple plug adapters and USB cables cost around £25 - that's a lot of money to shell out when you want at least five of them, so I bought some non original ones from eBay which cost me significantly less and they're okay, but not perfect.

They charge my phone BUT the touch screen seems to get confused if I try to use it when it's connected to one of these chargers, so I have to unplug it which totally defeats the entire object.

Play, at the moment however, are selling genuine Apple USB plug adapter and USB cable sets for just £8.09; HURRAH!  I'm sure you don't need me to tell that you plug the three-pin pointy bits into the wall, the little USB bit into that, and the other end into your phone or iPod, so I'm off to buy up Play's entire stock before the price goes up!
