    Default Hi-Quality USB 2.0 Cables

    Hi everyone! I know this website sells Hi-Quality USB 2.0 Cables but I wanted to know where I can get these same USB cables but that light up in different colors. Does anyone know?

    Thank you!

    Hey Jwit,

    Check out this video of Richie Hawtin. Look at the wire he is using with his Kontrol X1 midi control. I need some wires like that for my midi devices when I do my private events. It will bring more light to my DJ booth if I'm playing in a enviroment where the place is packed with people but not that much light is in the DJ booth area.

    Pretty sure they are just these UV reactive usb cables.

    Hmmm...light up USB ey? I like the concept but I'd be interested in how "high quality" those things were. I wonder what would be being sacrificed for the light-up feature?

    my recommendation would be to get some decent cables, then wrap them in uv reactive tape used for inside computers - that way you get a decent cable and its uv reactive

    ^^ +1 , Plus that way you can make cool multi color patterns with the tape

    Wow great feedback guys! Thank you so much! I already have one that lights up in blue but the issue with it is that everytime i plug it in to my Kontrol X1, it doesn't work. But the wire is working because the light is still on. When I use the original wire that came with the Kontrol X1 it works perfectly fine.

    my guess would be that the LED inside the cable is using up to much of the USB power, the X1 is pretty power hungry so using it with that cable probably does not give it enough juice.
