First Look At The Air Venturi Nomad II Portable Compressor
The Air Venturi Nomad II portable compressor is a new version of the original Nomad. It has a number of improvements over the original Nomad. The main obvious change is that the AC power supply is now built-in to the compressor housing, instead of being a separate item.
HAM Tester Doug Wall will be running the Air Venturi Nomad II portable compressor through its paces over the next few weeks, but today we’ll take a first look at what you receive when you buy the Nomad II.
We don’t often talk about the packaging airgun products are delivered-in. But we’re making an exception for the Air Venturi Nomad II portable compressor! It ships to you in a very solid card carton, with excellent internal packaging.
That’s very important to ensure your new compressor reaches you in top class condition. In fact Jordan – our regular UPS delivery driver – said that this was one of the best-packed packages he’d ever seen! That’s a great compliment from a consummate delivery professional…
Once you open the carton, you’ll find a very comprehensively- specified product.
The Air Venturi Nomad II portable compressor is supplied in a practical and useful black carrying case. There’s provision to attach a shoulder strap using a standard connector also – if you have one. That would make carrying easier, although the Nomad II is not exactly heavy.
There’s also an AC power cord, jumper cables, the output hose and a variety of small parts and accessories. Here’s the basic unit, straight out of its case…
As you can see, the Air Venturi Nomad II portable compressor carried a QA check certificate from the factory. That – together with the 12-month Air Venturi warranty and support – should give confidence to purchasers.
There’s a well-illustrated user instruction manual to accompany the product. A quick glance shows that this covers many of the questions a new user would have when setting-up and using a Air Venturi Nomad II portable compressor for the first time.
Also included is a bag of small “goodies”. These include feet (the four black disks), a male Q/D fitting and a “dead head” test plug. There’s also a fuse, some spare burst disks, replacement check vales and springs, together with some O rings.
Not included in the photograph above is an oil applicator bottle and a pack of air filters. That’s a pretty full compliment of accessories!
The Air Venturi Nomad II portable compressor is one of a steady flow of new personal compressors entering the market now. The HAM Team is very excited about this development!
Making it easy to generate your own High Pressure Air at a reasonable price and without physical pumping removes the main barrier to widespread PCP adoption. That has to be good news for airgunners and the airgun industry.
How well does it work? That’s what HAM Tester Doug Wall will be finding out. Stay tuned for details!
