These are great for cinewhoop or small frames that have difficult to access USB ports.

Often USB connector on the FC can break off when accidentally pull too hard. A magnetic USB cable could save it. If you pull hard, the cable just detached from the connector. And the cable rotates around the connector 360 degree, so it puts little stress on the connector even when you twist the cable.

These magnetic USB cables also come with USB-C, Micro USB and Lightning connector (iPhone), it’s very versatile. You can use them on your phones and tablets too.

You can buy more spare connectors and just leave them plugged in to your FC, It protects your port from getting dirt inside that could damage the contacts when you insert a normal USB cable in.

Make sure the magnetic USB cable supports data transfer, a lot of the cheap ones only do charging. Data-capable magnetic USB cables have multiple contacts like this:

Hi Oscar.

I’ve been reading the reviews on the magnetic connectors and apparently some people have fried their electronics with these. Have you heard about anything of this nature? Thanks

I am not aware of this, I have been using this in my cinewhoop for months and it’s been fine.
