Android phone users couldn’t have asked for a better accessory. One of the latest after ChargeCard and among the products of Nomad is the ChargeKey. In fact, this product is not only limited to Android phone users, but anything with a microUSB or lightning cable (iPhone 5/5C and maybe iPhone 6 too) can be charged with it. It is a much convenient, safe and multipurpose accessory designed specifically with the purpose to charge and synchronize the phones. ChargeKey actually raised more than $170,000 on Indiegogo for their portable USB charger and is currently a featured success story on Indiegogo.
The team at Nomad previously launched ChargeCard. Similar in function, it was also designed to charge the phones, but was about the size of a credit card that can easily adjust in your wallet. With a microUSB and lightning connectors, it worked just like a standard USB charging cable.
Regarded as the world’s most portable device, ChargeKey is 3 mm thick, USB 2.0 synchronized with 3.1 Amp Charging capability. It’s small size and light weight makes it a handy device to carry easily in your key ring. Its one end gets attached to the USB port of a PC or a laptop and the other connecting end to the Android phone’s port or iPhone 5/5C or iPod touch 5G. The two connecting ends of the key are adjoined with flexible rubber in the middle that does not allow it to break. It is perfectly compatible with all types of iOS (lightning ones) and Android devices, so that from now you need not to carry a long cable with you all the time. It is also unique in the sense that no other accessory of its type seems to be available and more importantly durable.
Besides its numerous advantages, there are also some shortcomings. For instance, due to its small size, it sometimes becomes difficult to connect with a rear USB port of a PC. Especially when there are other cables plugged in the neighboring ports. Another thing worth mentioning is that both of its ends are uncovered and so there is always a threat that it might get damaged when it gets in contact with other things.
However, most of the times when you don’t have your phone’s charger along with you, this ChargeKey ensures that your phone’s battery does not go dead. Moreover, it does not only help in charging your phone but it also allows data transfer from your phone to your PC, laptop, iPod touch, iPad, etc.. It is priced at $25 which further makes it a decent value.
