Rarely would I write about a charging cable. \u00a0But the Une Bobine is anything but just that. \u00a0Yes, it will charge just about any mobile device. \u00a0But what makes it unique is its cord. \u00a0Or in this case, flexible cord. If you'd rather charge on a dock, read our Native Union Dock + for iPhone review.\r\n\r\nFirst off, the Une Bobine comes in a variety of flavors. \u00a0And by flavors I mean plugs; microUSB (for Android), Lightning, or 30-pin (iPhone 4s or later). \u00a0Second off, it's costs $35. \u00a0However, that price only applies to the Lightning version of the cable. \u00a0You can thank Apple for that, as it's likely a reflection of their licensing fee. \u00a0The other versions are $15 less, or $20.

If you still don't know which iPhone you want, take a look at our comparison of the iPhone 5 vs the iPhone 4s.\r\n\r\nSo the question is the Une Bobine gimmick or does it actually add some true utility? \u00a0Well, at first I thought the former. \u00a0Now, after using and owning it for many weeks, I'm in the latter mindset and here's why.\r\n\r\nWhen charging my iPhone 6 it's incredibly convenient to have the handset at eye level. \u00a0My only complaint is that if you plug it into Apple's included iPhone AC adapter, is that the combined weight of the Une Bobine and iPhone can\u00a0cause it to become unplugged from the wall. \u00a0But that quickly becomes a moot issue, especially if you position the Une Bobine correctly by supporting some of the weight on the cord itself - you can do this thanks to its flexible nature.\r\n\r\nAnother reason I like it is that - aside from the fact that it's fairly unique looking - is that it's great for Face Timing. \u00a0And we did just that in our Vap Shot videe. \u00a0And thanks to its flexible cord I was able to position it such that the person on the other end of call felt like they were right in the action. \u00a0Which is to say I never had to put my iPhone 6 down to free my hands.\r\n\r\nNeedless to say, you'll want\u00a0to mess around with the flexible nature ofcord to be come accustom to where the weight needs to go. \u00a0Moreover, the Une Bobine doesn't need to be plugged to use it. \u00a0In fact, that's a big part of the Bobine; it doubles as a stand, which makes it usuable on airplanes or anywhere you don't want to hold your phone for long periods of time. \u00a0And thanks to its length, it's likely that you'll be able to get your iPhone eye level, at least while seated.\r\n\r\nYou can buy the Une Bobine here.
