Ultra rugged construction

Keys get dropped and tossed around. That’s why NomadKey uses only the toughest materials. We use high-grade polycarbonate from Bayer and a stellar rubber elastomer from Dupont to make it flexible and durable. We also use scratch-resistant metals on the contacts so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of pesky caps.

Flexible for hard to reach places

USB ports are everywhere. You can find them on computers, printers, TVs, stereos, and even airplane seats. As long as you’ve got your NomadKey, you can charge up your device.

*When it comes to the Samsung Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S5, the USB 3.0 charging cables are optimized to charge these large and powerful phones at the fastest rate. However, the standard Micro USB 2.0 is still capable of charging these phones, just at a slightly slower speed. The USB port used can also influence charging speed (wall chargers will power your phone faster than a computer). Of course, when your battery is low and you really need a charge, your Nomad charging cable will always be there for you!


01. Does the Key charge and sync?

Yep! It is USB 2.0 certified and the Lightning version is also Apple MFi certified, so you can rest easy, these bad boys will sync your iTunes and charge your iPad or tablet.

02. Should I be worried about the exposed connectors?

No. The USB type A and the Micro USB connectors are housed in a robust metal jacket, so you cannot scratch the gold contacts. The Apple Lightning connector is made from very robust materials and will not scratch either.

03. Where can I plug the Key into?

Good question. USB ports are nearly everywhere. They are on wall outlets, printers, keyboards, TV's, cash registers, etc. Your just need to develop "USB radar".

04. Is the Key charge my device as fast as a normal charging cable?

Yep. As fast as your best cable. Key is tested and certified (by Apple) to charge at 2.4 amp speed, which i very very fast. Faster than any iPhone can charge at.
