ChargeGuardZ Cord Protector REVIEW


ChargeGuardZ is a simple silicone accessory that provides you with a way to keep your original Apple cables (and some Android ones) from getting frayed. The idea of the cord protector came to the product designer when they became tired of replacing their children’s phone cables. After all, those costs really add up quickly. So, this product built from necessity is now available in six different colors (purple, black, red, green, blue, and fuschia) for around $10. The ChargeGuardZ is designed to work with popular electronic devices like iPhone, Android phones, iPads, Android Tablets, and handheld gaming devices. ChargeGuardZ can be used to store cords when they aren’t in use and it helps to prevent tangling, too.

User Experience

The ChargeGuardZ is simply packaged with only a cardboard backing. The design of the packaging isn’t extremely detailed, but a nice diagram of how to properly use the cord protector with your cable is included on the back. The “Made in the U.S.A.” emblem is also included on the back. The ChargeGuardZ is attached to the cardboard backing with a cable tie so you will need a knife or scissors to cut it free before using it.


While I really like the concept of this product, I don’t really have a good use for it at this time. I think the design is a little awkward and bulky. It does work but is a lot to carry around with you. I think the price of the ChargeGuardZ is comparable with other cord protectors in the market and that the material used to make it will last for a long time. The ChargeGuardZ serves a purpose but just isn’t for me.
