If you’re tired of the meh charging speeds you’re currently getting for your iPhone and other gadgets, you might consider Nomad’s pair of new products. The company rolled out a new USB-C PD wall adapter with iPhone fast-charging support and a collection of braided Sport Cables on Wednesday.

Nomad 30W USB-C GaN AC Adapter

Nomad is well-known for its leather iPhone cases, but it also makes chargers and other accessories.

Nomad’s new 30W USB-C GaN AC Adapter is small — just a touch bigger than Apple’s 5W USB-A charger — but it carries a big, 30W power output. GaN chargers are great because the components inside can be closer together than with older chargers, making for compact power that still meets safety standards.

The charger supports iPhone fast charging, which could cut your charging time in half, depending on what you’re using now. You can also use the new Nomad adapter to power Apple products like the MagSafe Charger.

As is often the case these days, the charger does not come with a USB-C cable (but Nomad has you covered, below). By the way, the same charger is available with 20W of power for $18.95.

Nomad Sport Cables

Along with the GaN charger, you can fast-charge using one of Nomad’s new Sport Cables. The company said the charger and cable combo will give a modern iPhone a 50% charge in less than 30 minutes. Nomad noted the new cables are similar to its existing kevlar cables, but they cost less and come with a nylon braid.

You can get the cables in three versions: USB-A to Lightning, USB-C to Lightning, and USB-C to USB-C. The Lightning cables are MFi certified.
