Xiaomi launches the WSKEN X1 Pro data cable with detachable magnetic Micro and USB-C heads.

Xiaomi has launched the WSKEN X1 Pro data cable. Although there is a USB 2.0 to Type C female-male connector, the WSKEN X1 Pro data cable brings simplicity to the entire package with a magnetic detachable connection. The cable has two heads, a Micro-USB and Type-C head.

The design ensures the USB interface is not attached and detached from the phone too frequently, thus protecting the USB port from damage. It also makes one-handed operation easy especially when there is a need to charge the phone while on the wheels. Also, when the wire is detached from the USB head, the chip is automatically powered off to prevent short-circuiting.

The cable comes in two lengths – one is 1.2-meter long and costs 49 yuan (~$8) while the 2-meter cable is priced at 59 yuan (~$8). The cable has a braided design and is made of flame retardant material that is resistant to heat. The high quality, oxygen-free, high-purity copper core is selected for good electrical conductivity. The wire is made of high-quality nylon, with higher toughness and high-density weaving process.

In addition, the terminal head is made of zinc alloy shell, and the surface of the shell is treated with high-density metal paint to make the handle feel comfortable and delicate. There is an indicator light which is turned on when the cable is connected to a power source.
