Belkin MiXiT UP ChargeSync CableBelkin Christmas 2016
I have totally been sold on Belkin Chargers, cables and mounts.I've replaced the childrens cables with their own coloured USB cables which are a really good length, tangle free, great quality and everyone had their own colour. They are actually easier to find in colours too. See our Belkin MiXiT UP ChargeSync Cable review here.

Belkin MIXIT↑™ Metallic
For myself i have matchy matchy in the MixIT Range for cables and car charger, they come in 6 metallic matte colours, i have Gold but there is also a few shades of silvers, a rose gold and a pearl which are lovely. I love the 4ft length of the USB cable, the secure fittings and the braided cable finish on cable is cute too. Love the durabilty and stylish look of this range.
