ChargeKey is a tiny USB cable that attaches to your keychain

We’ve seen ChargeCard and we like it a lot. Like that’s not enough, the same guys (Nomad) are out with an even more portable USB cable called ChargeKey. The idea is similar – you should have a cable with you wherever you go. Simply attach this thing to your keychain, and that’s it.

On one side, the ChargeKey has an open-faced USB connector, and on the other either a Lightning connector (for iPhone 5/5c/5s) or micro USB port. Now when you need an extra juice, simply connect your device to a nearby computer and that’s it.

Pretty sweet I would say. The price of $25 may sound a lot for a cable, but it’s more of a convenience you’re buying here. The ability to have a USB cable with you when needed is priceless, and Nomad knows that.

As I’m writing this, the company is doing an initial production run of 10,000 ChargeKeys, with plans to ship them to purchasers on November 30, 2013. Here’s a link to the iPhone version and here’s the micro USB model.
