For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Nomad to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a rugged, high-quality USB-C cable designed for Apple's latest Macs that use USB-C and other USB-C accessories like the Nintendo Switch or Android smartphones.
Priced at $39.95, Nomad's USB-C cable supports full 100W power transfer and 10Gb/s USB 3.1 data transfer speeds, making it compatible with all of Apple's USB-C devices. It will charge your MacBook, 13-inch MacBook Pro, or 15-inch MacBook Pro at full speed paired with an appropriate power adapter.
With more and more device manufacturers adopting USB-C, it's always useful to have an extra USB-C cable around, especially because Apple's USB-C power adapters designed for MacBook and MacBook Pro models don't ship with USB-C cables. If you want to pick up a spare, you'll need to buy a cable separately.
Nomad describes its USB-C cable as "ultra rugged" because it's made from a braided ballistic nylon and an extra thick wire gauge with a polyamide core, making it resistant to wear and tear from daily use. Nomad has also included reinforced RF shielding for fast data sync, along with a thick fire resistant PVC jacket.
The cable measures in at 1M in length, an ideal size for use at home or when traveling, and you can be sure that it's going to hold up well even if you're a little rough with it.
We have eight of Nomad's USB-C cables to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

But if you try to buy a new charger, it only comes with the brick: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MNF82LL/A/87w-usb-c-power-adapter
I think they mean if you buy a spare adaptor like at this link, it does not come with a cable.
Yes, we (as readers) do win these giveaways.
I have in fact been lucky enough to be chosen for the WaterField Designs Zip Laptop Brief. (https://www.macrumors.com/2017/08/18/macrumors-giveaway-zip-brief-waterfield-designs/)
