The story! After extensive Amazoning for a lightweight iPhone 5s lightning cable and/or microUSB cable for my Kindle... I gave up and returned to trusty Google. Almost immediately I found the crowdfunded project by Nomad called CHARGEKEY.
Aside from obviously being something I wanted to attach to my key ring immediately, I thought this is perfect for our thru hike!
My plan is to carry a single microUSB CHARGEKEY and use the Apple microUSB to lightning adapter (also tiny sized for easy losing) - saving both space and weight over anything else on the market. Anywhere. Period.
Received the nicely flat packed envelope today and got right to it. Here are some pictures of my experience-
CHARGEKEY lightning on the left! (Key ring attached as I wanted) And microUSB on the right! What an awesome concept!
Plenty more gear and more to come friends.
We leave TOMORROW for Savannah. First trail day is March 19th. IT'S GO TIME.
----updates to follow as we gain experience and test durability on the trail---
