The battery is airplane travel friendly, so you can travel around the world and dive deeper, explore the underwater world with the BLU3 Nomad.
The general restrictions for travelling by air with batteries is set by IATA dangerous goods regulations (IATA-DGR). The restrictions for passengers carrying a rechargeable Lithium–Ion onboard depends on the Watt-hour (Wh) rating of the battery. Different restrictions also apply depending if the battery is installed in the equipment or brought as spare (extra) battery. A general requirement for allowing a Lithium-ion battery onboard is that it is tested and certified for air transport in accordance with Part III, Sub-section 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria.

☑ The Design
The New BLU3 Nomad is compact, lightweight and integrated. It is designed and assembled in the USA.
☑ Dry Bag Float
The Dry Bag Float provides buoyancy, visibility, and waterproof storage for dry items. It has two air reservoirs that can be inflated by mouth with ease to provide 44 lb of buoyancy. It’s bright color will help notify surrounding boaters of your location. Store dry items inside the waterproof compartment while you enjoy your dive with Nomad.
☑ The Battery Pack
Nomad is powered by a custom lithium-ion battery pack that is swappable and rechargeable. The pack and connector are IP67-rated to handle saltwater environments. It’s 144 Wh, so it is allowed in carry-on luggage on most airlines! A charge-level indicator is located right on the battery itself so that you can always check your battery level. Be sure to grab a few extra packs so that you can dive all day long!
☑ The Smart Reg™
What allows Nomad to be so compact, energy-efficient, and responsive is our patent-pending Smart Reg™ – the first of its kind!
Here’s how it works: A silicone diaphragm inside the Smart Reg™ moves when the diver breathes. A waterproofed sensor measures the diaphragm movement – it then sends an electronic signal which triggers the compressor to pump air at exactly the time and speed that the diver is inhaling.
☑ The Compressor
With deeper depths, higher pressure and flow rates are required for diving. BLU3 custom compressor designed by our team in Florida, USA has been customized to fit this application. For example – even if you accidentally get saltwater inside your pump, no damage will be done. Just rinse freshwater through. Don’t try that with any other compressors!
Nomad’s flotation shell surrounding the compressor gives the unit inherent buoyancy without the need for a flotation tube. The flotation shell is rotomolded from hard, durable plastic and filled with foam so that it’s unsinkable. That being said, you should use the Dry Bag Float whenever you dive for additional buoyancy, stability, and visibility.
☑ The Air Hose
Nomad’s 40-foot air hose is the perfect balance of weight, flexibility, and durability. The coils prevent the hose from kinking and make it super easy to handle. Bungee the hose up for easy storage. (Hose is longer than max depth to allow for more scope, making Nomad easier to tow while diving at max depth).
☑ Nomad Backpack
Take Nomad with you to new dive spots around the world with the Nomad Backpack, designed specifically to make carrying Nomad or Nemo and the rest of your gear as easy as possible.

A backup air supply is recommended in all methods of diving. It’s especially important for our novice divers to be prepared with a method for a slow and safe ascent in every circumstance. Spare Air® is the smallest redundant SCUBA system available with enough air to get you to the surface in an “out-of-air” situation.
Keep the fun going with a spare battery that is easy to swap out. Each battery supplies Nomad with 45-60+ minutes of use.
