Kabel Prufen with OLED display monitors the temperature of the USB connectors, voltage and amperage
On the site Kickstarter began fundraising for the issue of an unusual cable with connectors USB and micro-USB. The cable is called Prufen. It is unusual in that it is able to measure the temperature in both the connectors and the voltage and current. The measurement results are displayed on a small OLED display.
