It was ten years ago when Nomad first launched the ChargeKey, one of the most compact charging cables I’ve ever seen. It’s so small that you can attach it to your key ring and carry it anywhere. Now, charge key is back completely redesigned and better than ever.
I fondly remember my first ChargeKey. This eliminates the need to stuff a full-length charging cable into your pocket when you’re on the go. Now, I always have my ChargeKey ready for the inevitable moment the day my iPhone’s battery icon turns red.
Nomad Charge Key (2023)
The updated Nomad ChargeKey features a new sleek design and durable construction that uses USB-C for the fastest possible charging on the go.

One of the biggest changes in the new ChargeKey is the move from USB-A to USB-C in response to Android devices moving from micro USB to USB-C. With this in mind, ChargeKey once again exists in two versions. Lightning connector for iPhone and one is Android smartphones, tablets, and other USB-C devices.
One thing that hasn’t changed is the design. Each ChargeKey features a durable, flexible braided cable and a zinc alloy cable tip that magnetically connects. I really like the magnetic feature. Because the magnets are strong enough to hold the ends firmly together, so they don’t spread out when you put them on your keys. But the magnets aren’t that strong, so they get annoying and start pouncing on other ferrous materials.
I’ve used both the Lightning and USB-C versions of the new Chargekey and they not only meet but exceed my expectations. It’s extremely durable, disappears on your keychain, and has no problem charging the latest devices. The iPhone version charges at 20W, while the USB-C version charges up to 60W without issue.
There are many portable charging cables out there, but these are the top ones.of USB-C to iPhone connection costs $35with USB-C to USB-C as cheap as $25. Both are great accessories and will last for years if you keep them on your keyring until you need to charge your hungry device.
