A fresh Kickstarter project that combines a 3.5mm jack and Lightning port in a small footprint. The T-shaped accessory has both ports for simultaneous charging and listening, solving the issue presented by Apple’s latest device.

If all goes to plan it will ship in January. It’s important to note that the campaign page does not mention MFi certification, so you’ll be backing this product at your own risk.
