New Delhi: Smartphone users who get annoyed with ill-fitting USB connectors, tangled cables and slow data transfer speeds have a solution in Flippy – the world’s first reversible micro-USB cable.

Flippy is a patent-pending technology by Dott, an innovative smart-device accessories brand, that allows users not only to transfer files at a lighting speed but also charge smartphones much faster than other USB cables.


What works for the cable?

Firstly, it is pretty with a royal blue colour. Unlike the other round-shaped cords, the flat designed Flippy is handy and tangle-free.

It has gold-plated USB (that fits into computers and laptops) and micro-USB (that fits into devices like smartphones) reversible male connectors.

The symmetrical connectors fit seamlessly and let the user plug into micro-USB and USB port devices either way.

With this feature, the user can charge and sync mobile devices without the hassle of worrying about finding the correct side of the connector. Flip it this way or that, this side up or that – it doesn’t matter.

Flippy has the oxygen-free copper wire that makes a connection stable and blazingly fast. With transferring speeds up to a staggering 480 Mbps, the cable transfers large files quickly and easily. It copied approximately 16 GB of data in nearly eight minutes.

With its high-quality tinned copper construction – that allows 2.4 amp fast charging – the cable fully charged a 3,400 mAh battery in approximately 1.25 hours.

The cable is compatible with all devices like smartphones, digital cameras and MP3 players that have micro-USB connectors.

The thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) shielding and tough mold make the cable suitable for secure connections and the reinforced cable joints reduce the possibility of it getting damaged and exposing the internal wires.

Priced at Rs.499 on Amazon, the cable is available in 20 cm, one metre and two-metre lengths. One can also buy the cable from dottstore.com for Rs.599.

What doesn’t work?

The USB connector is made of plastic and is very thin, making it vulnerable to break easily.

Verdict: The cable meets all requirements of a user as it offers stylish design and colour. The fast charging and quick data transfer features with reversible USB and micro-USB (male) connectors makes it ideal for use with any brand of smartphones, digital cameras and MP3 players that has a compatible (female) port. A must-buy for people looking for low-cost sync & charge micro-USB cable”.

Technical Specifications: Connector Type: Gold-plated USB 2.0 type A (male) to reversible micro-B USB (male) | TPE shielding and Tough TPE-mold | Reinforced cable joints | Flexible cable shield | High quality tinned copper construction wires. (IANS, Sourabh Kulesh), (image courtesy:img04.olx.in)

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

By Aishwarya Jain

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
