This Week's BlackBerry Accessory Feature: Retractable Sync & Charge Cable

retractable USB cable

All BlackBerry devices come with a USB cable for charging, backups, syncing and more. Its a useful accessory of which every BlackBerry owner knows the value. When traveling or packing it into your "accessory drawer" or laptop bag, the standard USB cable can be a pain sometimes. For this reason, I'm a big fan of a retractable USB cable. These little guys are just a few inches long when rolled up, but when pulled out it stretches to over two feet. No more tangles from multiple cords, and you can even cart this one around in your pocket. With both mini-USB and micro-USB versions available, pretty much every device is covered.

If you need some more control, you can even check out the dual-head sync & charge cable that lets you charge two micro-USB devices at once. Great for charging a headset and device together, device and a spare battery, or whatever crazy combination you can think of. Got more than one device? Check out the retractable cable with 5 different tips to fit all (or most) of your other devices.
