Nomad ChargeKey is a portable USB adapter that fits on your keyholder
Nomad, the manufacturer behind the 3-inch Lightning cable and the ChargeCard USB charging accessories, recently outed its new product – the Nomad ChargeKey. Nomad's latest accessory comes in two variations – a Lightning-to-USB and a USB-to-microUSB ones, which means that they're compatible with both iOS and Android devices.

The Nomad ChargeKey is a tiny cable adapter, not much bigger than a regular key. In case you are on the go and the charger for your, say, iPhone 5 or HTC One are not nearby, the Nomad ChargeKey allows you to plug your device into any compatible USB port in order to charge and sync it simultaneously.

The Nomad ChargeKey outputs as much as 3.1 amps of power and supports USB 2.0. The middle section of the accessory, which is "built to hang and bend", is made of rubber and is touted as being quite long-lasting – in fact, the Nomad ChargeKey comes with a full life-time warranty.

Both the Lightning-to-USB and a USB-to-microUSB adapters are priced at $25 (free worldwide shipping included), but are currently out of stock. You can check them out on the manufacturer's website at the source link.

I would be concerned for the ends to get damaged eventually.

I was thinking the same thing. They should at least protect both ends to reduce the risk of damages to the connectors. After all they are going into your pockets with keys -_-

Looks like something i'd buy, but i feel like i wanna wait to see if other people's chargers are breaking with those open connectors. The company also seems to be getting a bad rep with orders not being processed and bad communication.

Wouldn't the weight of the phone cause it to fall if you plugged it in a desktop PC?

although i wouldn't trust leaving my phone hanging and would always prop it up on something, my phone easily stays connected if i hang it from my charger now.
