A few months ago we reviewed the MicFlip Reversible USB Cable from Winnergear. Not content with having just one end reversible, the company has released a new version and our MicFlip 2.0 review takes a look at their latest truly, fully reversible Micro-USB/USB cable.
The MicFlip 2.0 has the following specifications and features:
- Reversible Micro USB
- Reversible Type-A Standard USB
- Gold Coated for Corrosion Resistance
- Tangle Free Nylon Braided Cable
- Rubber Protection
- Durable Aluminum Housing
- 6 ft/200 cm
- Red/Black color scheme
Not much has changed over the design of the original MicFlip cable, and the MicFlip 2.0 still features the same braided tangle free nylon cable and aluminum shell casings on each end adorned with the MicFlip logo. Both USB ends are gold plated as well. What has changed however, is in addition to the Micro-USB end being reversible, the USB-A end is reversible as well. This version of the cable is only available in a 6′ length with red cable and black ends.
Ease of Use
As with the original MicFlip, the new version of the cable is a tight fit on both ends but that’s not a bad thing as when connected to your devices, you know the cable isn’t going to jiggle loose and fall out. Simply plug one end into a Micro-USB port and the other end into a USB-A port and you’re good to go for data transfer or charging your device. The bonus here is it doesn’t matter which way you plug either end in at all.
The MicFlip 2.0 is priced at $19.99USD, which is $5 above the original cable. While it’s definitely more expensive than other USB cables, the convenience of not having to fiddle with which way the USB plug goes in is definitely worth it for some. I actually like the idea, especially for use by my kids as I don’t have to worry about them forcing a Micro-USB plug in the wrong way and ruining a device.
If you’re looking for the convenience of USB-C in a Micro-USB/USB-A cable for your existing non-USB-C devices, you should definitely check out the MicFlip cable from Winnergear.
