If you’re anxious just to see the picture, don’t worry, it’s understandable. This accessory promises to grab the AirPods via the Lightning connector to hook them up with a carabiner anywhere. But will they hold on without letting go of the Lightning connector? The manufacturer promises that they will.
AirPod accessories we have seen many. From accessories that turn AirPods into earrings to more useful options like sleeves to give the case a wireless charge. There are also plenty of stickers for them. Not to mention the bizarre invention of PopSocket. But the Jura Anchor is certainly a novelty: a carabiner attached by means of the Lightning connector .
Jura Anchor is an accessory that is certainly curious. It is basically a hanger for the AirPod case . It fits like a lightning cable and a plastic cover around it covers part of the exterior. On the other side a key ring and a carabiner complete the accessory.
The project started at Kickstarter, although the accessory can now be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s official website. Well, soon, since they indicate that it will arrive “during the month of December”. Its price is about 35 dollars if we want it with a titanium carabiner and about 25 dollars if we only need a zinc alloy carabiner . The zinc model is available in four different colours.

According to the manufacturer, holds the weight of 15 AirPods before releasing , this means that it will not easily come off, even with a few pulls. The truth is that the Lightning connector holds much more than it looks. Hang your AirPods or even your iPhone from a Lightning cable and you’ll see that it doesn’t come off so easily. But is this enough to leave your AirPods hanging out of a backpack or with your keys? In my case I prefer to keep the case in my pocket, or with a case like the one in TwelveSouth.
