A Potential New Must-Have Travel Accessory

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.

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.

  1. This is useless, the only thing going for it, is that it is tiny. I use justmobile portable battery thing. I can charge my phone more than once. It would require you charging it with a usb port or a wall plug with a USB port.

    1. Jay- I hear where you are coming from. I think NomadPlus looks appealing due to the size and as a companion to Nomad’s other plugs. I wouldn’t call it useless, its value is charing a phone 70% ! 🙂

  2. Most cell phones have 2000-2500 MAH of battery power. Thus, the 1200 MAH charger can not fill the batteyry completely. You can get a rough idea by dividing the MAH of an external charger by the MAH of your phone’s battery.
