So, I had gotten a cord quite like this in the past. it was a right angle with the nylon cord material. Granted, it wasn't a power tip, but aside from that, it was quite similar. Anyway, I was very shocked how great this product is. You can just leave the little piece in and it doesn't fall out. it magnetizes immediately to the cord when you go to charge it. I love the feel of the cord and I would definitely consider getting more of these.
