Buffalo - USB cable you can keep it with you all the time

Buffalo is going to release a uniquely shaped USB2.0 cable in early May to use with a smartphone/tablet for transferring data or for charging.

Usually when you carry a USB cable in your bag with you, the cable gets tangled or the end of the connector could possibly scar the device's LCD monitor. However, these new USB cables allow you to attach one end to the other end so that you can keep it around your bag's handle or your pants' belt loop while you don't use them. Their connector parts don't get exposed outside and also you will have less chance to forget to bring it with you.

2 versions are available:
BSIPC09ULWH (A to Lightning) - ¥3,200
BSMPC20BK (A to microB) - ¥1,520

2 new models of USB adapter were released by Sanwa Supply. Both are ¥5,800.

They are compatible with TransferJet technology (Close proximity wireless transfer technology), which instantly enables them to send/receive data to/from another device just by putting the device above them.

In these adapters, Sony's ultra-fast LSI is built-in so they are capable of sending 50MB data to other devices in about 5 seconds. In addition to that, using close proximity wireless transfer technology lessens the possibility of data leakage.
