The world’s first cordless pressure washer has just got even better!
And now the wait is finally over!!
The Nomad 18 V cordless portable pressure washer can be purchased with a high quality Li-ion (Lithium ion) battery, with all the advantages that brings with it, the main ones being it runs the washer for longer and also at a constant/maximum pressure without the rolling off in pressure that the NiCad battery exhibited as it was running down.
The Li-ion battery also has a built in fuel gauge – just press the button on the side of it to see the level of charge via a traffic light style system of; green (fully charged), amber (partly discharged) and red (very low/flat). Li-ion batteries do not suffer from “memory” problems unlike NiCads when batteries are not fully discharged before recharging, plus Li-ions also have a much slower self discharge time – i.e. they stay charged for longer before they need topping up – many weeks/months.
Another improvement to the product is that the mains charger is now different and charges not only the new Li-ion Battery but also the NiCad battery – hence the name Dual Chemistry Charger. Each time a battery is placed in the charger it is tested prior to charging and any faults highlighted to the user. Please note that whilst NiCad batteries can be charged in the Dual Chemistry Charger a Li-ion battery CANNOT be charged in NiCad charger.
Note. Existing Nomad 18 V NiCad owners can purchase an upgrade kit that includes a Li-ion battery (N105) and dual chemistry charger (N117). The upgrade kit has the part number NN105N117 and can be found by following this link.
Other changes to the New Nomad 18 V are:
- The new spray gun has an improved latching mechanism
- The hose also has the same latching improvements to the end that connects to the washer
- The washer outlet washer has been replaced by a new semi-internal o-ring
- The power cord with car adapter is no longer shipped with the washer as the internal connector has now been removed.
Available in either Orange or Green colour ways. Click this link to buy.

Ever wanted to use you Nomad Portable Pressure washer with something else other than the spray gun supplied with it – well now you can.
By simply connecting the normal Nomad hose to your Nomad 18 V or 12 V washer and attaching the new Garden Hose In-line Adapter, you can now connect HozelockTM/garden hose style products to your Nomad hose.
Simple but very effective, connect the adapter in line and a whole world of options opens up.
Over the years we have been asked many times if we have an adapter to allow customers to connect wash brushes, shampoo spray heads, pole brushes, water heaters and many other items to our washers. As engineers we initially took the long hard path to try and provide an integrated bonded connector, but time, money and concerns over potential quality issues lead us finally to the cheaper, but more effective route. As ever there are normally two ways to solve a problem, an expensive way and a cheap way…
Whether you need the model with the control valve (Part Number N400) will depend on what you wish to connect you Nomad to and whether you want to remotely turn the water flow on/off. The standard In-line Adapter is just a straight through connection (Part Number N300) and has no control valve, so to turn the water flow off you just need to turn the Nomad off at its switch. Note the image above is for the N300 (this has no control valve), the image below is the N400 with teh control valve (tap).
We have also selected a very high quality wash brush that can be connceted via the garden hose adapter that is included with it, this is part number N600.
We build and test the adapters in house and will undertake custom adapters if required. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0845 680 5043 to see if we can help in any way.

Last year’s National Motorhome Show was the first we attended, and we were so impressed we’re back again this year.
It’s amazing what you can buy for the camping and outdoor life – and it’s all here! We love having a wander around to look at the vast array of kit and gadgets available, and will try to find some time again this time.
Of course, the Nomad is a great piece of kit for this market. You want to keep your motorhome clean on the outside? Then the Nomad is spot on. With the 20 foot hose (that’s attached to the tank and so hosepipe ban friendly) you can effectively set the Nomad on the ground and clean 20 feet in one direction, and 20 feet in the other. That’s 40 feet of cleaning without having to move your water supply.
Want to keep your motorhome clean on the inside? Then use the Nomad to clean all your outdoor gear down before traipsing it inside your beautiful motorhome: boots, dogs, sticks, for example. Peterborough’s your chance to see one working – and to take advantage of our show offer. So, come and say hello. We are on stand number 200.

Designed to fit easily and snugly over a Nomad 18 V to keep warm water warm or iced cool water cool, the Cosy for the Nomad is the perfect accessory for those travelling away from home.
Made by the leading UK horse blanket manufacture from heavy weight (300gram) quilted horse rug materiai, with a rip-stop nylon outer shell, it is fully machine washable.
Cosy for the Nomad 18 V - warm water warner & iced water cooler
In recent cold weather testing the cosy kept 45 degree celsius water up to 13 degrees warmer than a unit without after 4 ½ hours! That is the difference between quite cold and pleasantly warm. Perfect for horse owners and mountain bikers alike. (It was still 11 degrees warmer after 7 hours)!
Only available in red and only to fit the Nomad 18 V Cordless washer at this time. We can look at offering a Nomad 12 V version if enough interest is shown.
