JUICES+, the Kickstarter project that aims to launch tangle-free, woven charging cables for iDevices, has secured more than double its funding goal with an impressive 48 days remaining. In celebration of Apple's iPhone 5s, however, the folks behind the project have added a golden JUICES+ charger, which is set to unlock if the project passes the $120,000 marker. The gold charging cable (pictured above) will complement Apple's gold-option iPhone 5s perfectly. As Laurens and Hannes of JUICES+ explained to AppAdvice:
The JUICIES+ Limited Edition in Gold matches the design and look of the brand new iPhone 5s perfectly! The connector housings will be crafted in the exact same “champagne” gold color. For the cable sleeve we will use an absolutely stunning woven fabric material to match the housings.Due to a higher manufacturing cost, however, the gold JUICES+ cable will only unlock at $120,000. In order to sign up for a JUICES+, Kickstarter users must offer a pledge of $18 (plus $5 for shipping outside of the United States), which entitles backers to any colored cable listed in the project description. Gold will only be an option, though, if JUICES+ secures more than $120,000 in funding. So far, the project has around $100,000, and as mentioned, 48 days remain.
