    Protect your mobile devices with the USB condom, designed to prevent your phone from having its data stolen at public charging ports.
    Because the power receptacle on a smartphone is also its data transfer port, plugging in at public places carries some risk of juice-jacking, or having the data stolen. The USB condom will sit between the phone and the power source and control which of the four pins will connect to the charging port. By routing only the power pins and blocking the data pins, the device will prevent any unwanted transfer of data.
