The race is on for accessory makers to get products to the market with Lightning connector support, and Kenburg Tech has joined the club with its new miniature LightLinez sync cable. LightLinez is a pocket-sized Lightning to USB cable — it measures just 12 cm — that allows you to charge or sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch without a tangled mess.
