Our phones and tablets depend on some pretty frail charging equipment. The soft white Lightning cables that come with iPhones fray and break so easily it’s easy to think they’re designed that way. It pays to sync and charge your devices with a cable that’ll last, so we rounded up some tough, innovative charging upgrades from Nomad:
Nomad 1.5M Battery Lightning Cable – 59% off
Like its name suggests, Nomad Battery Cable is a charger and a cable, all in one. That means a lot less clutter, with a single sleek and compact design that’s also durable, with a layer of nylon wrapping. With a 2,800mAh battery built in, it packs enough juice to bring an iPhone 8 to full power. It’s also MFi-certified, so you can count on it to carry data and deliver a charge.
