How many times out of 10 do you plug in your phone or tablet and get it right on the first try? Most people are probably around 50%. It's kind of annoying! Why isn't there a standard microUSB cable that plugs in both ways?

Apple fixed this issue with iPhones and iPads when it released its Lightning cable. For everyone else who uses a microUSB to charge their phone, tablet or eReader, the one-way functionality of standard microUSB cables can be a major irritant.

Enter MicFlip, the reversible microUSB cable. Instead of the standard trapezoidal input, it's gone hexagonal, and when you plug in your device it'll fit every time. MicFlip's creators used IndieGoGo to crowdfund the device's manufacture, and they're expected to start shipping out next month. They hit the jackpot - this ought to be the standard for microUSB cables.

Check the MicFlip out in the video below, and to purchase one for yourself, visit MicFlip's IndieGoGo page by clicking here.
