For a while now it has been hard for manufactures to release third-party Thunderbolt products, but it seems that Corning have found a way as they have just announced the release of a new set of Thunderbolt optical cables.

These cables will apparently be ten times stronger than the standard copper made cables, as well as being longer with lengths of 10, 20 and 30 metres whilst the copper cables can are only 3 metres long, alongside all of that they will also offer high-speed data transfers of up to 10GBps, but will sadly not charge your device.

Corning have announced plans to launch these with USB 3.0 connectivity as well if Thunderbolt isn’t for you, however they did not announce their price, we do know they should be available sometime in Q1 this year.
