Nomad PowerPlant Battery is encased in solid American walnut makes for a wonderful design

Batteries…batteries…batteries…when it comes to external power packs, I have a very sick collection of them. You can never have enough power and storage in my opinion. One thing that makes a battery stand out might be the amount of mAh, or the amount or USB ports it has, or even, digital displays, but for me it’s always been design first and then everything else second. This is why I really love the Nomad PowerPlant. It’s design has it encased inside of a solid block of American walnut.

Nomad PowerPlant Battery Review

PowerPlant sort of looks like a paper weight. It has a very simple and clean design that stands out from all the plain black batteries that I have stacks of. The PowerPlant packs 12,000 mAh battery with two USB 2.1A ports. It should last at least 500 charging cycles, and gives your iPhone 6 and/or 6s about four full charges before needing to be charged up itself.

Nomad PowerPlant Battery Review

I was given this battery by the Nomad team while at CES because my iPhone was about to conk out. They think everyone should live powered up. I truly appreciated the gift and while it charged up my iPhone, I thought about how its design is so much different then all the plain black batteries I had back at home.

Nomad PowerPlant Battery Review

Maybe I have a soft spot for this product because it was a gift or maybe it’s because I grew up with walnut trees in my backyard and I would spend my weekends picking up the nuts with my grandfather. He used to love to eat them and I would always get a kick out of helping him collect and crack them open. He passed away in 2005 and because my grandparents raised me, I find in my older age that anything that reminds me of my past to be a great thing. Every time I reach for the walnut encased PowerPlant, I see the back scratcher and sword handle my grandfather carved from a walnut tree.

Nomad started putting out their products about the same time MacSources started and I love to see what they come out with as they have always given me amazing experiences with their products. PowerPlant has been a wonderful battery option for me and I am truly happy to have it as a part of my battery collection. It works flawlessly and has a very unique design.
