Thermoplastic elastomer used as a material for the product, which is a material intermediate between gum elastic and plastic, protects the cable parts from getting damaged.

Unfortunately, with the Swiss army knife-shaped Lightning cable, you are not allowed to charge up multiple devices at the same time. Neither data transfer nor charging iPad/tablets is supported.
