Nomad: Rugged iPhone Charging Cables for a Better Charging Experience

Nomad Rugged iPhone Cables

Nomad Rugged CablesMy phone is Apple, my tablet is Apple, even my desktop computer is Apple. Its safe to say that I am a fan of just about all things Apple. One thing I don’t like, however, are the charging cables that come with the iPhone and iPad devices. They never last as long as my phone lasts before upgrading time (about two years), and my iPad cable bit the dust years ago and it now has to share the cable I have for my phone. Another HUGE complaint about the Apple charging cables are the length. The provided cables are barely long enough to reach the night stands beside my bed.

If you’re like me, you’d like a charging cable that is not only longer, but more durable. I want a cable that will hold up over time without cracking, fraying, and becoming damaged, one that is easy to use, Apple certified, and is longer than your average ruler.

Nomad took all of these things into consideration, and much more, when they designed their Ultra Rugged Cables. Made from military-grade materials like Kevlar and ballistic nylon, these cables are durable AND each cord is 5 feet in length! That is 1.5 metres! If someone had told me last year that there were iPhone cords that were almost as tall as I am, I’d accuse them of crazy talk! Finally, a cord that I won’t have to stretch just so I can plug my phone in beside my bed!

Nomad cables are USB 2.0 certified, and the lightning tips are Apple MFi Certified as well. What does this mean? It means with the Nomad cables, you can still sync your iTunes and import your photos, and best of all you can charge your devices! It also means that these cables won’t damage your device OR the battery!

Nomad Rugged Cables

Nomad makes 3 different types of Rugged Cables:

  • The Lightning Cable is a simple, yet durable and long lasting cable designed specifically for iPhones. This cable is not going to fray like the one that comes with your phone. Nomad is so sure that this cable will outlast your phone, it comes with a 5 year guarantee!
  • The Battery Cable is a charging cable AND battery pack combined into one device! Anyone who has ever owned an iPhone before knows that having a portable battery pack for when you’re on the go is pretty much a necessity!
  • The Universal Cable is an all in one cable that charges everything. The Universal Cable comes with an integrated multi-tip charging option to charge any mobile device.
  • Each cable also comes with an integrated, custom designed Liquid Silicone Rubber cable tie for the best cable management. Because the cables are SO long, this will help keep your cable out of the way without causing any harm!

Nomad Rugged Cables

All three of the Nomad cables use Apple MFi certified Lightning cables and work with all recent, current and upcoming iPhone and iPad models. Additionally, Universal Cable’s integrated interchangeable Micro USB and USB type C tips are compatible with all Android phones and other USB powered devices like bluetooth headsets, portable speakers, and more. 
Nomad iPhone Cables
I’ve been looking for a decent quality Apple certified charging cable for a long time, and until now have not been satisfied with any of the ones I have found. I definitely didn’t want to use a cheap cable that isn’t Apple certified because I didn’t want to damage my iPhone, iPad or their batteries, but I also didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg in order to have a quality charger. Nomad meets all of these requirements, and I was excited to test out the cables to see how they would work!

What I thought:

I really LOVE these cables! The Nomad Cables are so much better than any of the cables I have ever used before. The 5 feet length is AMAZING. These cables are so long that I definitely need to use the included cable tie to make sure the cords stay neat and out of the way. The cord charges efficiently, and I love the extra length so I am no longer fighting with my cord to have it reach my bedside table so I am able to charge my phone.

Nomad iPhone Cable

Anyone with an iPhone knows that if you’re using your phone (especially to check your email, social media, playing games or using your browser), your battery will NOT last an entire day. The Battery Cable is amazing for keeping my phone charged even when I am on the go. Using the cable tie, I keep it shortened so that the cable easily fits into my jacket or hoodie pocket, or my purse. Its easy to use, charges efficiently, and is easy to charge again by simply plugging into the back of my computer or into the Power Adapter.

iPhone Cable

My husband was also REALLY impressed, and I know I am going to have to go and buy him his own cables (or I have a strong feeling mine will go missing!)
