Ever plugged your gadget into someone else's computer for a quick charge and helplessly watched as your data started to sync? It's an annoyance and wastes time, but with the Sync Blocker cable it's optional.

The Sync Blocker cable is a USB to Micro USB cable with a small switch that allows you to choose whether you want to sync data or just charge your gadget. It goes for ten bucks which is about equal to regular cables which force syncing. [USB Fever via CrunchGear]
