New Flight Gear Charging Cables
Pilots have plenty of batteries to keep charged these days, from iPads to smartphones to portable ADS-B receivers. There are a lot of options when it comes to selecting a charging cable, but how many of them actually work? Inferior charging cables can tangle, break and even cause interference with avionics.
To solve these problems Sporty’s developed the Flight Gear USB to Lightning braided cable and the USB to USB-C braided cable. These specially designed cables are perfectly suited for the cockpit. “Any time you add an electronic device to the cockpit, you run the risk of interference with the radios,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “We’re very concerned about that problem, so we’ve tested the Flight Gear Charging Cables in multiple aircraft and through hundreds of flight hours to ensure they won’t become a nuisance in the plane.”
Each cable has a braided nylon sleeve to help resist tangles, kinks and knots. The plugs are cased in high-end aluminum to ensure that these cables will stand up to the most demanding environments, airborne and on land. The USB to Lightning Cable is MFi certified and will work with all lightning plug devices. Each Cable measures just over three feet in length.
The Flight Gear USB to Lightning Braided Cable [5472A] and the Flight Gear USB to USB-C Braided Cable [6317A] are available for $14.95. Each may be purchased at sportys.com or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
