Nomad says their Pod is the first portable battery for the Apple Watch. You plug the Watch’s charger into the Pod, then wind the excess cable around the Pod’s spindle. Snap on the Pod’s stamped military-grade aluminum lid, and you’ll have a hockey puck-sized charging stand with the Watch’s magnetic charger exposed. Inside is a high-density 1800mAh lithium-polymer rechargeable battery with enough power for four complete recharges of the Watch. Nomad says “Pod is the first Apple Watch accessory that charges with the new Type C USB cable (it also has Micro USB as a backup).” The Pod is only 2.8″ in diameter and 1″ thick and weighs 2.8 ounces, so you can even carry it in your pocket.
