Reinventing the cable
Nomad takes the drag out of charging with Covestro materials
Holding a drained phone with no idea where the charging cord could be is an all-too-common aggravation in our connected world.
When a conventional cable isn’t handy to charge a mobile phone or tablet, Nomad offers a cable as mobile as our lives.
Nomad products reinvent the cable for mobile charging and feature with an impact-resistant outer shell.
