Longevity Data Wire / Data Wire

Longevity Data Wire

Using spring shaped connector can prolong the useful time of a data wire. Whether connected to portable source to continue our electrical products or connected to a computer for synchronous data transmission, the data wire can only work flare out. If it has been working bent for a quite long time, the part near the connector can easily rupture, which can affect charging and data transmitting and can potentially cause a leakage danger. When the only broken part was the connector and others remain intact, it is such a waste to toss it away. This design focuses on the little things around us and aims to improve happiness in life.
