Carrying around USB cables when you are out and about can be frustrating. Best case scenario, you fork out for a 0.3cm cable on Amazon and inevitably lose it. That’s also just one cable, what happens if you need a lightning cable?
It may seem like a niche scenario, but I quite frequently take out a small 5000mAh power pack with me when I am out all day and get infuriated by the trailing cables.
The Vonmählen High Six aims to solve this issue with a handy keyring which contains an ultra-short USB-C to USB-C cable plus a USB-A and Lightning/Micro-USB adaptor. Plus, it is a bottle opener, which is always handy.

High Six is the second generation of High Five, solving problems found in High Five after long-term use, including losing the USB-A adapter cap and modernizing to a USB-C to USB-C cable from a micro-USB to USB-C, and is equipped with power delivery up to 60 watts and data transfer.
High Six consists of a USB-C to USB-C cable, a USB- A adapter, and 2in1 micro USB/ lightning adapter, which all fit comfortably into its sleek metal casing with an integrated bottle opener so users can always ensure they are charged and never thirsty! Additionally, the cable on the High Six has two strong magnets that tightly holds it together whilst functioning as a place to put the adapters when using the other connectors.
The High Six is also more compact and lighter than its predecessor, weighing in at only 16.5 grams with dimensions of 12 x 16.5 x 61 mm. The charging cable is packed with the current technical standards and functionality, all the while becoming an elegant multi-purpose key chain accessory.
Vonmählen CEO, Julian Thormählen, commented ‘We really appreciate the valuable feedback we received from our Backers after the first campaign. We were able to apply the feedback when designing High Six, which has resulted in an even stronger, more user-friendly product. Our aspiration has always been to create functional products with innovative features and aesthetic design, resulting in the best user experience.’
