  8. Has anyone tried a 3-1 cable for usb-c/lightning/micro USB?

    Rather than carry a raft of cables with me, do the 3-1 cables work? If so, what's the best? I don't mind whether it is this sort of thing: Core 3-in-1 Lightning / Micro USB / USB-C 1m Cable - White or something like this: USB Multi-Charging Cable - Lightning, USB-C, Micro-USB |

    I'm after a couple of things - a NAS primarily - are deals actually good anywhere this year? I don't want to start trawling Amazon et al or I'll end up buying a crapton of things I didn't know I wanted because they seem cheap (which is what they want me to do of course).
