Electroluminescent charge cables from Pilot Electronics let you see that a device is getting charged. When battery power is low, the light moves fast. As the charge builds, the light moves more slowly, stopping when the device is fully charged.

Jury statement: “The flowing light impulse indicates the charge status of a device even from far away and makes the often troublesome observation of the display obsolete: an innovative solution which exhibits a playful approach.”
