Have you ever just dismissed something, and actually got it in your hand and thought “ hang on that’s a really good idea.
You know here at Coolsmartphone, we are asked for review all sorts of products be them mainstream devices, right through to the weird and wonderful and sometimes the downright bizarre.
So when I received the e-mail saying “Hey would you like to review our charging lead with a built-in bottle opener “ from Vonmahlen I though meh
But then I looked on just how well the company’s previous Kickstarter campaigns for similar gadgets have been doing, well it sparked my interest. So the High Six duly arrived.
What’s the High Six? Well, it’s a USB-C to USB-C cable, a USB- A adapter, and a 2in1 micro USB/ lightning adapter, which all fit comfortably into its sleek metal casing with an integrated bottle opener. Additionally, the cable on the High Six has two strong magnets that tightly hold it together whilst functioning as a place to put the adapters when using the other connectors.

I’ve had the High Six for a couple of weeks now and I’ve got a full preproduction model which to be honest I thought was spot on. It’s on my keyring and has gone everywhere with me, and it has come into its own on a number of occasions, not only for me but when someone asks “has anyone got charging lead?” and connecting my S21 to my SurfaceBook, and of course the shout of “who’s got a bottle opener”
The High Six is available in Black, Silver and Rose Gold now on Kickstarter now on a 30-day campaign until November 25th 2021 with early bird pricing starting at €19 for the first 48 hours (approx $23/£17).
