There’s been plenty written about the possible consequences of using a charging/sync cable to connect your smartphone to an unknown power source while on the road. Security-conscious travelers fear their cable could be used for illicit purposes by a jerry-rigged charging port which secretly pulls data from their phone while it is charging. Enter the Data Sync Blocker.

Data Sync Blocker – USB A Male to Micro USB Male cable for Android Smartphones is a $3.99 cable which allows you to turn off sync capabilities with the flick of a switch. Because synchronization relies on only certain of the 5 pins found in a Micro USB A cord, this device disconnects the synchronization while maintaining the ability to charge your device.

Unsure about how trustworthy that public USB charging port is? Simply slide the connector to “charge” before you plug in and this cord will protect your device from giving up any data.

If you are at home, you naturally will sync (and charge your Android smartphone with your PC, however, if were out or at your office, you may just want to charge your Android smartphone, if you plug your smartphone with other computer, of course, it has no problems, just that it may have some little disturbances to you.

Here we have this cable for you to manage your smartphone. This cable is designed to have 1 button in the middle, one side is as any other ordinary Dock cable for smartphone – to sync with and charge your smartphone; if you just want to charge your smartphone, you may switch the button to another side, then no matter which PC / laptop that you are connecting to, it will just let the power to go thru from the computer to charge your smartphone, will not sync with and will not occasionally prompt you a signal to remind you.

This is specially useful for travellers and for using at office!
