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.

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?
