Juice-jacking as a threat probably first crept into the collective paranoia of gadget geeks in the summer of 2011, after I wrote a story about two researchers at the DefCon hacker convention in Vegas who’d set up a mobile charging station designed to educate the unwary to the fact that many mobile devices (particularly Apple devices) are set up to connect to a computer and immediately sync data…
Since that story, several products have sprung up to help minimize such threats. These small USB pass-through devices are designed to allow charging yet block any data transfer capability…
Overall, the Juice-Jack Defender feels much sturdier — as if it would hold up just fine to an inadvertent nudge in an upward or downward direction while charging. I’m not sure I could say the same about the USB Condom, although to be honest I didn’t stress-test either device.
