This Is the Most Badass Lightning Cable I’ve Ever Seen

If you have an iPhone, it also might be the only charging cable you’ll ever need.

Nomad’s new Battery Cable ($50) is probably the coolest Lightning cable I’ve ever seen. It’s a more powerful and more ruggedized version of the company’s previous Battery Cable, and it combines a Lightning cable with a 2800mAh portable power bank (which adds roughly one full charge to your iPhone X).

The Lightning cable is far from the stock one that comes with your iPhone: it’s wrapped with 500D nylon that, according to Nomad, “was originally developed to protect military forces from shrapnel and bullets.” And as before, when plugged into a wall out the 2-in-1 cable will charge your iPhone first and the power bank second.

For any iPhone or iPad owner and frequent traveler who wants to reduce the amount of gear they pack — this is a pretty cool option.
