CableJive iStubs Bundle Review

Have I told you all that I hate tangled cords? Well, I do. I am constantly going behind my entertainment center, computer desk and inside my laptop bag to untangle cords.

So when I stumbled on the CableJive website, I immediately ordered a black iStubz Bundle reasonably priced at $14.95.

iStubz come in 7cm (2.75 inches) and 22cm (8.66 inches) lenghts for all iOS devices, and do exactly what the picture above displays: cuts the extra cord out of a standard Apple sync cable for more manageable cable lengths. The cables look exactly like the out-of-the-box Apple cords and function the same as well. Additionally, the iStubz from CableJive also come in white or black.

So now, instead of this:

I have my choice of this:

Or this:

And for the coup de grace, when I need to setup my SSO (Starbucks Satellite Office) I can plug up all my devices and look like I’m actually working more organized while working on the go:

Since this is a review, and I feel I must provide my entire experience with the CableJive iStubz product, my first set of cables that were delivered did have a flaw. The first time I plugged in and disconnected the cables, the cable housing on BOTH the 7cm and 22cm cables came apart to show the tiny electrical board hidden in the cable:

I quickly contacted CableJive support, and within a week, and the nice folks sent over a new iStubz Bundle and return postage to send the defective cables back…no questions asked. The new cables are just as sturdy as my Apple cables, so I will chalk it up to just a bad batch. On the bright-side, I guess I also got a chance to review CableJive’s customer support practices and procedures as well.

So for BOTH the CableJive iStubz bundle and the customer support team, I give them a solid passing grade. CableJive also has an assortment of other cables from super long xlSync cables to dockXtender cables that will allow you to keep your super-thick phone case on while docking to a sound system. So check out the CableJive website and see what they have

As my very special gift, enter the code: “BrothaTech” (omit the quotes) and you’ll…probably get some sort of “this coupon code does not exist” error message, lol!

I don’t have it like that…yet.

    I need these! I just twitpic’d last night’s late night workload complete with the iPhone, blackberry, iPad 2, MacBook and all accompanying wires, chargers and cords. I’m going to check out their site today!

    Christen, They have tons of cool cables and wires that can consolidate just about any setup. Someone tweeted that I should look into retractable cables, but my experience with them is that the retracting mechanism never lasts. With different length cables, I can choose the best length according to my immediate needs.

    Thanks for the comment!
