ChargeKey, the World’s Smallest USB Charger

Meg Rahner January 20, 2014

We all know that familiar stressful feeling of trying to conserve our phone batteries when it’s lingering around 20% battery life without access to a charger. What’s the solution to charging without having to carry your standard charger around? Your best answer is ChargeKey, the world’s smallest and most portable USB charger. This convenient device can be plugged into any USB port to charge and sync your phone and is no larger than a standard house-key. There’s also an open loop at the top to attach it to your keychain so it will fit right in with the rest of your keys and avoid misplacement of such a tiny device.


ChargeKey was created by the team at NOMAD, a small company that “designs products for the 21st century nomad.” They seek to provide simple solutions to basic problems. Last year, they launched their first product, ChargeCard, on Kickstarter and exceeded their goal by 300%. ChargeKey is their second product and was launched on Indiegogo, also exceeding their goal – this time by 345%! Committed to catering to the nomadic spirit, NOMAD also accepts barters from people or companies to exchange their own goods in exchange for a ChargeCard or ChargeKey. Anna Sergeeva, Press Relations at NOMAD, states:

We received an overwhelming response, ranging from custom bikes and die-stamped office furniture to wall art and artisanal popcorn.

ChargeKey comes as a lightning cable which is compatible with iPhone 5/5s/5c, iPad minis, Lightning iPads, as well as a micro USB compatible with Samsung Galaxy, HTC, Nexus, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Lumia, LG, and many more. Standard pricing is $25 – or think of something you may want to barter.
