Compact and Convenient

One of the things that is both frustrating and impressive about Apple is that they are willing to innovate at all levels of product development, including the ports and cables that their devices use. This is frustrating because it often means that Apple's products are not compatible with many other standard devices that are very readily available out there, but it;s also admirable because their products oftentimes exceed the quality and usability of the standard ones. The recent switch of the iOS devices to the Lightning input and cable is a case in point: it overnight made millions third-party gadgets and cables obsolete. It also made a big departure from Apple's own line of products. But it is by most measures a very good cable. For one, it's much easier to use than the micro USB connection - you don't have to squint every time at the connection when you are trying to connect your devices.

The problem with Apple's cables, however, is that it's very hard for the third-party developers to get the license to manufacture them. This is why I am always delighted when I come across a third-party product that is innovative and useful. This little Nomad cable certainly fits the bill. It is small and it conveniently attaches to your ring chain. The regular USB side of the cable comes easily off form the cap that attaches it to your keychain. The cable is very short, about three inches, and it seamlessly connects between your iOS device and the regular USB port. You can use it to quickly charge your iPhone or iPad from a spare port on your computer. I use it in conjunction with an external battery that I now always carry around. You can also carry it with you in a messenger bag or a purse. Overall, this is a very nicely designed and convenient little cable.
