When you get an iPhone, you get a little cube-shaped wall charger.  Wouldn’t it be nice if that wall charger also served as a backup battery for your phone?  Well, the NomadPlus doesn’t exactly make the iPhone’s charger into a backup battery, but it adds one to the charger.  The NomadPlus fits around Apple charger and plugs into its USB port.  It adds some extra size and a couple extra ounces of weight to the Apple charger, but it also adds a battery that holds an extra 70% charge for your iPhone.  You plug the NomadPlus into the wall outlet, then plug the iPhone’s charge cable into the USB outlet; the phone charges first, then the battery will charge.  Although it requires an iPhone charger, the battery itself can charge other USB-chargeable devices.  Nomad is currently taking pre-orders for the NomadPlus.  It’s $39 and will ship November 30.
