Macally's take on the keychain-ready charging cable genre dominated by Scosche's flipSync models is this new design: KeySync ($15, aka Keychain Sync & Charge Cable). The concept is to enable a USB plug and Dock Connector to fold into a hard plastic shell that attaches to an included keyring and your keys; Macally's version is comparatively inexpensive, surprisingly small, and interestingly dot-textured on both of its sides. While the included key ring isn't fancy or particularly thick, this design occupies only around 2/3 the volume of flipSync, and is a neat rounded square.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
