your tag line should obviously be, "I drink your milkshake"

"Does it have iPhone to iPhone support? No. Because iOS devices don't support OTG output, you cannot use iPhone's battery to charge other devices" Well, the tagline is simply a lie then. Shame, because I really wished this would be true.

@gloom303 yeah, I was wondering this; seen other cables that do the same as this. Basically, it should be more like "Use any Android device as a battery to charge from.. unless it uses USB-C"

How many times have you thought... "I have battery in this device, why can't I use it to charge my phone? It looks like now you can.

Can you charge iPhone to iPhone? This wasn't clear from the video.

@hutchins @jon and it's a bad tagline... per their website: Does it have iPhone to iPhone support? No. Because iOS devices don't support OTG output, you cannot use iPhone's battery to charge other devices. In addition, the Lightning connector is made by Apple, which is not customizable to be embedded inside USB-A sheath. But you can charge, transfer/view the photos on your iPhone from Android devices. Furthermore, even when you don't have any Android devices, AnyLink can still be used as standard charging cable for your iOS devices. It's MFI certified, tangle-free and durable! Also, it costs you less compared to Apple standard charging cable:)

@hutchins @jon In case of two android devices, I assume the simple voltage rule would apply. Higher battery will pass on the current to low battery even though one is at 90% and other at 85%.

@jon No. From their FAQ at the bottom of their Kickstarter page: "Does it have iPhone to iPhone support? No. Because iOS devices don't support OTG output, you cannot use iPhone's battery to charge other devices. In addition, the Lightning connector is made by Apple, which is not customizable to be embedded inside USB-A sheath."
