Don’t forget to Vote in My Poll: Is It Wrong To Visit Countries With Oppressive Regimes?
A few months back I wrote about the Newest Card In My Wallet, Nomad’s ChargeCard.
More recently, Nomad released the NomadClip, a carabiner which like the ChargeCard is a portable charging cable. (I look forward to trying one out when it arrives in November.)
While portable charging cables are great to have, they are a bit limited. Portable cables are useful if you are sitting by a computer or have another place to plug-in your device, but what do you do when this is not the case?
Nomad has now introduced what looks like to be a great companion device (and travel accessory) to go along with their high quality cables, NomadPlus.
NomadPlus can turn an Apple wall plug into a portable charger. By attaching it to the Apple wall plug you are adding a 1200mAh battery.
By adding the NomadPlus to your Apple plug, you are creating a device that can charge any smartphone or USB powered device on the go. It can charge your phone up to 70% after it is unplugged from the wall.
Here is how it works:
However, there are a few things that I’ve wondered about the device:
- How long will it take to get fully charged once plugged into a wall?
- Why does NP only charge a phone up to 70%? My guess is that it is due to its size.
- If NomadPlus can charge a smartphone up to 70%, how much it could charge a tablet or other, larger device? It’s safe to say, quite a bit less.
NomadPlus costs $39 and pre-orders are available. The product is expected to ship on November 30.
