No­mad Goods, Inc.

Cara­biner – Light­ning

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

In this Dig­i­tal Age, it was only a mat­ter of time be­fore some­one did it — No­mad Goods has com­bined the frame of an asym­met­ric D-shaped cara­biner with a charg­ing cord, giv­ing you a light-duty ’biner that dou­bles as a backup Light­ning ca­ble. It’s USB 2.0 cer­ti­fied to charge up to 2.4 am­peres and sync your iPhone or iPad. (Mi­cro USB and DSLR ver­sions are also avail­able.) Not meant to be a pri­mary charg­ing ca­ble, the Cara­biner – Light­ning is ruggedly built … even if it’s not meant for climb­ing.

Pros:

Ideal for the min­i­mal­ist com­muter or an emer­gency sit­u­a­tion in which you need your iPhone for com­mu­ni­ca­tion or nav­i­ga­tion Sur­pris­ingly rugged con­struc­tion Light­weight and ver­sa­tile size

Cons:

Short ca­ble, forc­ing you to keep your phone within 5 inches of the power source.

Not for load-bear­ing func­tions
