TYLT is one of our regular OEM’s we’ve had the pleasure of working with since we started this website and they’re continually coming up with some great products. This time around they were kind enough to send a long their new TYLT Y-CHARGE [QUIK] and their FLYP-DUO reversible USB for review, so check it out!

Designs and Function
TYLT has always had a “flair” for design, they’re not ones to shy away from the bright, colorful and oddly shaped things. The Y-CHARGE is definitely odd but functional. The SmartDetect rapid charging works great and can get your Nexus 6 or iPhone 6 Plus going quickly. Having two USB ports capable of delivering a combined 4.8A is a plus, especially when you have two huge smartphones. The Y-CHARGE worked beautifully did exactly what it was supposed to and having the USB ports in the Y design was actually nice keeping the cables away from each other.
The FLYP-DUO reversible is a redesign of TYLT’s FLYP-DUO (which I also have). The nice thing about the reversible is the you can plug the USB side into a USB port upside down or vice-versa. With that reversible USB connection you don’t have to worry about putting that USB in the incorrect way. The flat cable is also one of my favorite designs, really is better at staying tangle free and having the FLYP-DUO R and the FLYP-DUO side by side plugged in, it’s nicely tangle free. Finally the microUSB and lightning cable connection is a nice touch. You can use these cables for Android or iPhone and that is a nice thing to have when you use both platforms like myself.
TYLT products aren’t the cheapest on the market, we’ve known that, but they are some of the most durable and well designed products we’ve used. While we have had some users disagree with us we still think that TYLT products are worth the investment. The Y-CHARGE [QUIK] will run you $39.99 and the FLYP-DUO Reversible $24.99, you can grab them at the links below.
Well worth the investment if you have multiple phones that require lots of juice. The rapid charge feature is nice on the YC and the reversible USB is nice on the FD. Yes the prices are a little on the higher side, but quality materials and craftsmanship make them worth it.
