When you are running low on battery on your smartphone or tablet, you may be tempted to connect your phone to just any power station you can find. You don’t want to do that without proper protection. As researchers have shown a number of times in the past, you could get hacked with a modified USB charger. That’s where USBCondom comes into play. It cuts off access to the data transfer pins in the USB cable while allowing you to still charge your phone.

With USBCondom, you will be able to charge your phone on your work or a public computer without worrying about getting hacked. It turns any normal USB cable into a “charge only” cable. Sets you back $10.
