Rattle Snake Coil is an aluminum phone charger that appears as if it'll bend into virtually any shape you desire. It's much thicker than standard phone chargers and comes with four different interchangeable heads that you can use to charge various digital devices. This charger, which you'll also be able to use as a dock when your phone has already been charged, has been designed for compatibility with Android devices, tablets, iPhones, iPads and even flip phones.
The cost of Rattle Snake Coil is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Rattle Snake Coil at the discounted price of only $7.99 for a total price of $35.97.

When you receive your Rattle Snake Coil, you'll need to uncoil it and then adjust its shape so that it suits your needs. You could arrange it in a spiral, a circle or a zigzag line—the possibilities are almost endless. The shape you choose should depend on the height you want your phone to be resting at. If you want to be able to view it at eye level, be sure to shape your charger in a way that'll enable you to do that. No matter how you shape the charger, remember to be gentle when you're bending it.
Next, after you've arranged your charger in a particular shape, it'll be time to plug a phone, iPod or tablet into it. The charger comes with four interchangeable heads (a USB head, a micro-USB head, a lightning adapter, and a USB-C adapter) so you'll need to choose the one that best suits your digital device. After you've made this selection, plug the digital device into the wider end of the charger.
This charger won't plug into an electrical outlet on your wall, but you'll notice that the end your phone (or an alternative digital device) isn't connected to contains a standard USB head. To start charging your digital device, or to simply dock it while you're using it, plug that USB head into any type of computer that'll accommodate it. Almost all computers have USB ports these days, so finding a suitable computer probably won't be difficult.
When you're done charging your phone or don't need to dock it while you work with it any longer, you can unplug your phone from this charger and disconnect the charger from your computer. If you don't need to use the charger again immediately, you'll be able to coil it back up into a smaller form. This will enable it to take up less space wherever you choose to store it, such as in your backpack or a drawer.
This charger is lightweight enough that when you're carrying it in a backpack or a medium to large-sized handbag, you won't feel as if you're carrying around a small dumbbell. However, it's durable enough that it'll likely be able to stand the impact of something as heavy as a car wheel without breaking. As a result, it may last you for years on end—perhaps longer than some of your phones or tablets will last.
Each Rattle Snake Coil is silver with black ends. Not only is this a nice-looking color combination, but the silver cable will be able to be spotted quickly by almost anyone when this charger's lying in a pile of other objects. If you've got a bunch of charging cords lying around, you'll probably be able to differentiate this one from the others very quickly, which will prevent you from leaving your home with a useless cord.
The aluminum cable that makes up most of each Rattle Snake Coil will be able to bend in any direction whenever you need it to. You shouldn't have to put a lot of effort into the bending, either, as a gentle push should make the cable move in your desired direction in the blink of an eye.
Some chargers will still only work with one type of digital device, or at least one brand of devices, but this aluminum charger will charge most digital devices that you might have around your home. As a result, if you get a new phone, tablet or iPod, it's unlikely that you'll need to get a new charger with this level of durability to go with it. Instead, you'll be able to just slide your old device out of this one and slide the new one in.
The Rattle Snake Coil will come in handy in the car when you want to use your GPS application but also want to avoid holding onto your phone. If you have a USB port in your vehicle, you can plug the end of the charger that isn't holding your phone into that. Otherwise, if your vehicle doesn't have a USB port, you may want to coil this charger around your cup holder and pull its aluminum cable up closer to your eye level.
When you'd like to take a picture of something but your hand keeps shaking, you'll have the option of setting up your Rattle Snake Coil as a tripod instead. It'll hold the phone or tablet you're taking the picture with steadily, at an appropriate level, as you press the appropriate buttons to take the photo. To use this charger as a tripod, you won't have to plug it into a computer, as you'll be able to coil it in such a way that it'll sit flat on almost any surface.
Since this charger is compatible with so many different devices, if you go somewhere with your friends or family members, everyone may not need to bring their own charger. You may be able to get away with taking just one Rattle Snake Coil and sharing it among your entire group. If this is possible, it'll save everyone at least a bit of space in their suitcases or bags.
In order to use the Rattle Snake Coil as a charger and not just a stand, it's necessary that you plug it into a USB port. While many people won't mind this, you might run into a problem if your computer is broken or you've already got USB cables plugged into all of its ports. This charger would be even better if a wall adapter could also be included with it, so people could have the choice of plugging it into a computer or an old-fashioned outlet.
Since this charging device comes with four interchangeable heads, you must ensure that you keep track of the three alternative heads when you're not using them. If you don't store the unused heads in a safe place, you might end up losing them, which may limit you from charging certain digital devices with your Rattle Snake Coil in the future.

Got this product a week ago and returned it the next day. The android plug worked ok after I finally got it plugged into the phone. It was the coil that was the major disappointment. It needed to be much beefier to work as advertised. In fact, it made me wonder if the one they advertised was made to higher standards than the one they sell. Good concept, lousy execution.

Is this product worth purchasing and can I use any 5w wall converter?

Hey Dennis, I haven’t bought this product, I just saw it advertised and wanted to check if it was as strong as advertised. That being said you can definitely use a usb wall converter. Based on the websites pros/cons, there are what looks like no cons. However, I question whether the cord is as strong as they advertised in the video (which is why I cane to this site) and saw a review saying that it isn’t extremely strong. I’m guessing if you have a newer iphone or iPhone x of some sort or a heavier phone, it will struggle to hold its weight unless set up right. Hope this helps!
