    Hope you guys enjoy the journey. This was one of those "can it be done" concepts for us and the goal would be to find a buyer for the finished product or melt it down to re-use. We're crazy enough to make it, not crazy enough to waste that kinda money on something so ridiculous lol

    Those Volta cables look exactly like the ones I have, just without the branding and a slightly different rubber around where the cable runs into the plugs. They were 7.99€ a piece and came with 3 tips (microUSB, USB C and Lightning) each. Those are $31 AU which roughly is 20€ before tax and import fees. So yeah! 8:04 "Tens of thousands of dollars of ass!" ~Linus Sebastian, 2021
