More than 60 years ago, a woman exploring the home she’d just bought found more than 600 love letters in the attic, hidden in a gold-trimmed hatbox.

Never get caught without a USB charging cable again! Keep a ChargeCard in your wallet. It has the same connectors as your phone’s USB cord, but it’s shaped like your library card. 

The ChargeCard, A USB connector you’ll never be without.
