Nomad, a company based out of San Francisco in the United States is attempting to solve a problem, that all of us have faced at one time or the other. The problem of not having the USB cable when you need one the most. Most of us like to dump our USB cables at home and struggle on a night out when we are out for a party and the phone battery starts to die out.
This is where Nomad is trying to intervene and attempting to put a USB cable inside your wallet or pocket, just to make sure you are a computer’s USB port away from some much needed energy to your smartphone. Nomad claims that it has made its products out of sheer necessity after getting sick of their phones dying out on them on a daily basis. Currently, the company has three products on their shelf:
The NomadClip resembles like a clip as the name suggests. The product takes the shape and size of a carabiner and has a micro USB or lightening connector port on one end and the USB port on the other end. The cable allows for both, charging as well as syncing of your mobile device. The NomadClip costs $39.
Akin to it a credit card, the NomadCard is the USB cable that is meant to fit inside your wallet. With extremely light and thin profile, the nomadcard will never feel like an extra accessory that you are carrying in your wallet. It does not compromise on quality though and does feel solid to not crack open at the slightest sight of pressure. The NomadCard is currently on sale and can be grabbed for $29.
NomadKey allows you to add your USB cable to your keychain, literally, as it is in the form of a house key. You can add the USB cable to your house keychain or with your car keys to ensure that at all times, the USB cable is just an arm’s reach away. NomadKey can be picked up for $29.
The Nomad products are MFi certified from Apple and would fit any case from a renowned manufacturer. All the products stated above are available from the Nomad website here. The products are shipped for free to USA, Canada, UK and Australia. Anywhere else in the world, and you will have to pay $5 extra.
