Nomad Launches New 2,800mAh Battery Cable for iPhone

Nomad today announced the launch of an updated Battery Cable, which comes equipped with a slim 2,800 mAh battery to add a bit of extra juice to Apple's iPhones and iPads.

The Battery Cable looks like a standard braided Nomad Lightning cable for the iPhone, but with the addition of a battery pack at one end that can be used for extra charging power when necessary.


Nomad's 1.5M Battery Cable includes an integrated Nomad cable tie and support for passthrough charging, so you can charge up the battery while you charge your iPhone. Having the battery pack integrated into the cable is convenient because it ensures the battery is always full when you need it.

Compared to the original version of the Battery Cable, the new model has a higher capacity and a sturdier aluminum build.

Nomad's Battery Cable can be purchased from the Nomad website for $49.95 starting today.

I absolutely see the worth of small, ultra portable battery packs - even if they don't provide a full charge - because they're only intended to top-up a phone and keep you going while you're out and take up no space in your pocket.

What I don't see the worth of is this thing being $50! Anker, a brand anyone who uses power banks should be aware of, sells lipstick-sized banks which offer 3000+mAH of charge for only $16. So it's cheaper AND larger capacity!

I’ll never forget how back when Nomad started, they used a portion of their early backer’s money to provide products to major retailers such as Best Buy before providing the product as promised to backers.

No thanks Nomad. I don’t support shady practices. I’ll take my money elsewhere...

I literally don’t understand the rationale for this product.

A portable power pack (one of eleventy billion out there) whose USP is it’s built into a mains charging cable, which you plug into the wall socket?

Wow. Who on earth wants a PPP in the form factor of a yet another messy cable uncomfortably tangled up in your pocket or bag.

$50 too. Literally extracting the urine.

Basicly a 18650 battery in plastic casing and a cheap chip to make it work.

I actually find it interesting. For $20 more than an official Lightning cable you get a braided cable that can save you in a pinch.

Nice cable to charge the phone in the car I think. Would get it with a little incentive, like a sale or something.

My only worry is how fast that battery can lose health.

Interesting as now one can only carry around one item instead of two.


When traveling you even need to bring three items, as most power banks need a micro USB cable to charge.

I think this is a very clever Idea, just too expensive.

Which is basically what half the battery packs for sale are too. I don't get the issue. Much of what we pay for is just pretty and convenient packaging of basic items.

Except it isn't, it's a Powerbank with an attached cable instead of a Powerbank and cable detached.
Most powerbanks also have way shorter cables cause you don't really need a long cable.

With a traditional power bank, I need to bring it, (in most cases) a micro USB cable to charge it, and a lightning cable to go from it to the phone. Or, I can just have this in my bag. There is some usefulness and ingenuity in this, in my opinion and for my use case.
