January 22, 2014

Britain loves a good gadget; more than 11 million gadgets were given as gifts across the UK during the Christmas period, and total spend on technology products exceeded £3bn in Britain last year. In the wake of gadget-fever, an utterly innovative new site has launched which helps to connect or enhance all the most popular tablets, smartphones, cameras and computers with the minimum of fuss. Connect My Gadget ( offers a unique search engine which allows anyone to search for the cables or connectors they need for the UK’s most popular gadgets including eReaders, tablets, games consoles and televisions.

Founded by an ex-buyer of cables and adapters for the world’s largest cable manufacturer, Connect My Gadget provides a simple interface and a smooth layout, perfect for those looking to make the most of the gadgets they have around the house. Whether they are looking to connect an iPhone to a television (, expand the memory of a smartphone, or find a new cable to connect their laptop to the printer, gadget-lovers will find everything they need to connect up their devices and enhance their capabilities at Connect My Gadget.

Many people who have access to these gadgets struggle to maximise their functionality; many people don’t realise that the contents of a digital camera can be viewed on a television, and that syncing a smartphone with a computer offers a comprehensive backup should anything be lost to an error. These vital functions of today’s gadgets are passing under the radar for many people, who simply don’t have the connectors or the know -how to make the most of their devices. Connect My Gadget aims to change all of that.

John Darwood, of Connect My Gadget, says, “When I quit the rat race to spend time with my family, I realised I had underestimated how much of a huge role gadgets play, not just in business life, but in family life too. I spent a lot of time hunting down iPhone chargers, wishing I had more memory on my digital camera to store precious moments with my children, and trying to connect up my laptop computer to the TV screen to enjoy a recently downloaded movie.”

He adds, “I realised quickly that there was a gap in the market for a simple portal that would allow people with no extensive knowledge of connectors or wires to be directed to the products they need, using basic drop-down menus. Users with no idea what HDMI stands for, or how an LG Optimus Pro works, simply choose the make and model of their product, and the device they want to connect it to, and are presented with the ideal cable or connector for the job.”

Launching for the first time back in December 2013, just before the Christmas rush, Connect My Gadget already has a plethora of brands and models listed under their simple drop-down menus. iPhones are catered for, there are numerous laptop and desktop brands and models, and the digital camera menu presents dozens of options to ensure that all users need to do to ensure the right connector cable, is choose the make and model of their device.
