Pre-orders finally start on Sat for the Nomad Lightning cable.
Ill be picking up 1 or 2.
Can you give me the link to the site that's selling them?
That is the site. Will be ready on pre-order day.
just curious about how it used for?
It's just a short lightning cable that u stick on your keychain so that u can charge your phone if you run low on juice and don't a regular cord.
That seems pretty stupid and really easy to lose. I wouldn't even consider one of those unless it's dirt cheap.
1) Being so short will make it difficult to use in a lot of instances. Pretty useless to use in an outlet. Really only useful with a laptop.
2) The USB end just attaches to a cap that is attached to a key ring? Seems it wouldn't be hard to lose.
I think it's pretty smart, and I don't think I'd lose it very easily.
The lightning connector fits pretty tight, you can have it hanging without having to worry about the phone falling, so it's useful pretty much anywhere there is a USB port and enough room for the phone.
For some people it might, other people are less careless with how they handle their keys. A third group of people might even put it somewhere else than on their keyring.
well, thanks for your message, i got to know, it will be convenient for charging, especially in emergency.
If only it had the charger portion somewhere..
Horrible website. Unless it's $5 or less, it's a waste. Get a third party cable and keep it in your car/briefcase/backpack.
You mean like the Nomad Lightning Cable? Good idea.
Is it less than $5? No, then I didn't mean that.
..I think you're missing the point of the whole "it's really small and it fits on a keychain" concept.
A third party cable does not fit that criteria...
Looks like pre-orders are open!
Interesting. Is there also also a protective cap for the connecter's end? If not, I can see it getting damaged over time.
Don't believe so. What you see is what you get.
$24.99?! They must be smoking crack.
Guys, even i need a lightning cable for my iPhone 5, but the thing is...$25 is something which matters, a lot! And everybody is gonna say that i'm an iPhone owner and I'm thinking twice before spending $25 so yeah, i do care about my money...and the fact is, we all should!!
I do go hunting sometimes where this might act as a backup, but I can easily get another flashlight for 25 bucks...having said that, i think there may be many more substitutes offering the same keychains with a much lower price tag attached to them. Do let me know if you find one!
Here's an alternative, although it's not that much cheaper: http://www.avantree.com/Product-keychain-Lightning-sync-charge-cable-Avantree-TR107_856.html#
they put a cap on the usb side for corrosion, apparently lightning end is waterproof. still dont see the point as its useless without either a laptop or charger...
Do you think it's a) easier, b) harder or c) equally hard to find a powered USB-port when you need to charge your phone than it is to find a powered USB-port and a lightning cable?
Seriously, dude... Do you think it's useless to have jumper cables in your car because they're no good without an external power source?
Nice analogy. Perfect.
Cars are everywhere. Powered USB ports are not.
I really can't imagine a time when this would be useful, or a better option, than a standard cable. Especially since it even costs more than a standard cable. You're paying more for a shorter cable that can easily get lost.
If i'm at work, I have a cable. If i'm on the road, I have a cable. If i'm at home, I have a cable.
I'm not really sure if you're joking, or if you didn't get the point...
When I charge my phone by the computer at home, I'd prefer this cable to a standard one. I put everything that I charge just next to the computer, and longer cables equals more clutter on the desk than shorter cables.
When I leave my house without my bag, I'd prefer this cable to a standard one because it's smaller and thus easier to have in the pocket without tangling (I've got keys and headphones in the same pocket, less tangling is a good thing in my book).
So would someone who has this Nomad cable attached to his key chain. What's your point?
