The Nomad Lightning Cable is an Apple certified 3-inch Lightning to USB cable that originated on Kickstarter last November. After accepting preorders in April, the team behind the Nomad has caught up on backorders and is now able to fill and ship orders on a daily basis.

As the Nomad is just three inches in length and comes equipped with a keyring adapter, it is one of the most portable Lightning cables on the market. In comparison, Apple’s smallest Lightning cable is 0.5m or over 19 inches long.

Why even have that part in the middle?
Just merge the two ends together and charge $ 50.

$ 25 are they joking. To expensive.
No. And by no, I mean hell no.

So the official 0.5m cable is $ 19 and this 3″(!!!) variant is $ 24.99…

I don’t understand… :S

Amazon sells a 4 in amazon basic lighting cable for $ 12.99. Has 1200 reviews with 4.5 star rating. Not sure if it is apple certified or not but a much better deal if you don’t need the key ring thing.

So you’re getting a fraction of the cable at even higher of a price? What’s wrong here?

get the Monoprice 4 in one, and theirs is official, for half the price.

None of you can conceive of a consumer being willing to pay an additional $ 5-10 for a cable that can be carried on a keychain? That sounds like a pretty reasonable premium to pay for someone interested in that functionality.

Now that I’d like to know as well. Maybe because it would put too much stress on the USB port of a computer and the Lightning port on the device if the connector didn’t have a bit of cable to allow the device to sit flat on a surface next to a charging computer?

OK, one more time kids. If you would rather have the mini-cable than have $ 25 in your pocket, then do a trade with the seller. If you would rather have $ 25 in your pocket, then move on. We call it the market. It’s not your mommy.

low volume production, how does it work..

They clearly think there’s a market for it at that price point, or they wouldn’t be selling it. If that market isn’t you, then fine, spend the $ 25 on something else.

No sense in wasting time complaining on internet forums about something you’re not going to buy anyway.

Always the exact same replies on the topic of this cable.

The same.

Whoa $ 25???
