NOMAD's new USB-C to Lightning Cable features Kevlar for ultimate durability

6 hours 33 minutes ago
NOMAD today announced availability of a new USB-C to Lightning cable that may just last longer than you! The cable, which comes in 1.5m (5 ft.) and 3m (10 ft.) lengths, uses Kevlar® fiber in the central core of the cable for strength and is wrapped with a Kevlar outer braid for incredible durability. While the cable might be a bit more expensive than what you’re used to paying for cheap cables (the 5 foot cable retails for $39.95), they’re also the only cables I know of that come with a 5 year guarantee — they’re built that well.
