CHARGEKEY IN THE NEWS:


“The New NOMAD CHARGEKEY Is Like A Jumper Cable For Your Phone”

“A year ago the guys at NOMAD released a small, portable USB cable for iPhones and micro USB devices. Now they’ve launched the CHARGEKEY, a super-small “cable” for charging your device via any USB port.”

- TechCrunch


“The makers of the CHARGECARD—that wallet-friendly credit card-sized sync cable for smartphones—are back with a new product called the CHARGEKEY that's instead designed to hang out on your keychain.”

- Gizmodo


"Tiny CHARGEKEY for iPhone 5 is always handy and ready to go...If you're anywhere that there's an open USB port, you can plug in your iPhone (or iPad -- the CHARGEKEY is designed to withstand up to 3.1 A of current) to top it off."

- TUAW

 

“The CHARGEKEY Might Be The Smallest Lightning Charger Possible”

“...impressively small CHARGEKEY, a teeny tiny USB-to-Lightning adapter that – yes – hooks onto a keyring.”

Cult of Mac







Production and Delivery

We are using a trusted manufacturer who currently manufactures our first product, CHARGECARD. We’ve already initiated the tooling for CHARGEKEY and we expect to ship on November 30th, meaning your CHARGEKEYS will arrive before December 10th.











 Frequently Asked Questions

Does CHARGEKEY allow for data transfer?

Yes. CHARGEKEY works just like a standard USB cable to charge and sync your phone.

Is CHARGEKEY durable?

CHARGEKEY is durable. It’s made from high grade Makrolon® polycarbonate and Versollan™ high performance polyurethane elastomer (TPU).

How fast will my phone charge when charging with CHARGEKEY?

CHARGEKEY will charge your phone as fast as any other cable will. The rate of charge actually depends on which USB port you’re connected to. Some USB ports emit fewer or more amps, which does affect charging time. For example, your phone will charge faster when connected to a 3.1 amp USB port than when connected to a 1.0 amp port.

Do you ship to my country?

Yes. We ship to everyone in every country everywhere in the world. We have a lot of shipping experience and we will make sure that we get you your CHARGEKEYS.

About Us 

We design products for the 21st century nomad. We’re a team from San Francisco working hard to dream up and build out tools for the 21st century nomad.


Since you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you’ve got quite a bit in common with us and with this 21st century nomad.


And who exactly is a 21st century nomad? It’s us and it’s you. It’s anyone who’d rather live more than own more. Anyone who’d rather invest in experience than waste money, energy and time on useless stuff. Anyone who looks at their smartphone as a tool helping them intertwine work, life and adventure.

Like any good nomads, we started NOMAD on the run while living between a basement, a garage, a boat and the open road.

We’re focused on building simple solutions to simple problems, problems that shouldn’t slow us or you down from living like a 21st century nomad.

CHARGECARD and CHARGEKEY are just the start of our modern, minimalist, mobility movement.
