The Nomad “Universal” Cable: The Cable to Rule Them All!

Nomad “universal” cable

You know the feeling – you need to charge something or transfer data, but you find yourself in need of a specific cable. USB-A to USB-C, USB-A to microUSB, or the dreaded microUSB to USB-C connection. It can be quite a hassle to carry a handful of cables with you, only to spend precious time untangling the right one from a tangled web of wires. But fear not! Nomad has heard your woes and has the perfect solution – the “universal” cable that covers all the bases!

At its core, the Nomad “universal” cable is a USB-C-to-USB-C cable that supports up to 100W PD (Power Delivery) charging protocol, making it suitable for everything from smartphones to laptops. But that’s not all! On one end, you’ll find a USB-C to USB-A adapter, and on the other end, a USB-C to microUSB adapter. This means that you effectively have four cables in the form of one. Say goodbye to carrying a tangle of wires in your bag!

This versatile cable excels in charging devices, providing fast and efficient power delivery. However, if you plan on using it for data transfer, keep in mind that the extended length options of up to 3 meters or 10 feet result in limited performance at USB 2.0 speeds of 480Mbps. So, it’s ideal for charging, but for speedy data transfer, you might want to consider shorter lengths.

The adapters that make this cable truly universal

Now, managing cables can be a nightmare. However, Nomad has made sure to keep the universal cable neat and organized. It comes with a practical, easy-to-use Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) cable tie, which surpasses the usual velcro ties seen on many cables. With this cable tie, you can keep things tidy and avoid the frustration of a tangled mess.

But Nomad doesn’t stop there when it comes to durability. The “universal” cable is covered in super-tough, double-braided Kevlar, the same material used in bulletproof vests. While it may not stop a bullet, Kevlar offers exceptional resistance to abrasion while maintaining a soft and flexible texture. This cable is ready to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use, ensuring longevity and reliability.

If you’re looking for a Kevlar USB-C cable without the “universal” adapters, Nomad has got you covered there too! They offer Kevlar cables in 0.3, 1.5, and 3.0 meters (1, 5, and 10 feet) for those specific needs.

In my personal experience, I absolutely love the Nomad “universal” cable. I keep it in my truck with my portable gear, ensuring I always have the right cable to charge almost anything I need, except my iPhone. It has saved me from the frustration of rummaging through a mess of tangled wires and provides fast and reliable charging for all my devices.

So, if you’re tired of constantly searching for the right cable or untangling a jumbled mess, look no further than the Nomad “universal” cable. With its versatility, durability, and convenience, it truly is the cable to rule them all!
