Accessory firm Nomad is overhauling its line of charging cables throughout the board with a significant redesign that provides a whole bunch of Kevlar actual, licensed Kevlar to the mix for what promises to be even tougher cables than the corporate’s already-strong cords.
The brand new cables feature Kevlar K29, an industrial model of the material that’s utilized in cables (like these charging cords) and also body and vehicle armor, which could make it a bit overkill for charging a phone. Nomad is utilizing the Kevlar both for a braided exterior, as well as for a central internal core for the brand new cables, which should make them pretty tough to break.
The brand new Kevlar design is rolling out throughout Nomad’s whole lineup of cables, with 11 different cords of various lengths and connectors available, including USB-C to USB-C, USB-A to Lightning, “Universal Cables” with quite a lot of included dongles, and, in a first for Nomad, USB-C to Lightning cables.
As to how robust the cables are, Nomad has a video exhibiting the cables being used to tow both people and a van, in case you’re not satisfied. I’ve been able to try one of many Lightning to USB-C cables out for just a few days, and while I can’t communicate to any durability tests (it appears reasonably strong to me), it does fast-charge my iPhone when connected to an 18W USB-C PD charger, which is nice enough for me.
