Nomad Mini is the newest addition to the BLU3 product line. Our engineering team has accepted feedback from users of Nemo and Nomad to combine the best features of each, so Nomad Mini delivers the sweet spot between portability and performance.

Here are a few of the most exciting design considerations:

The DiveBoost™ Kit allows for use of more than one battery at a time so you can dive for longer without swapping the battery. 
Nomad Mini batteries boast a 20% greater capacity than the Nemo batteries. Existing Nemo owners can seamlessly upgrade to the Nomad Mini without purchasing new batteries. Furthermore, traveling with the Nomad Mini batteries is more convenient than with Nomad batteries due to their being less than 100 Wh.
Allows for optional use of either the Flotation Tube, Dry Bag Float, neither, or both, depending on your situation and conditions.

Nomad Mini has similar portability specs of Nemo but with added depth performance. Like a miniature version of Nomad!

The Smart Reg™

What allows Nomad Mini to be so compact, energy-efficient, and responsive is our patented 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.

Nomad Mini compressor designed for deeper dives with higher pressure and flow rates. The foam shell ensures the unit is unsinkable, and it can be used with the Dry Bag Float or the Floatation Tube for added buoyancy, stability, and visibility.

The Compressor

Designed for deeper depths, Nomad Mini utilizes a custom compressor built by our team in Florida, USA. This compressor has been tailored to meet the requirements of deeper dives with higher pressure and flow rates. Our compressor can handle saltwater intrusion without damage, making maintenance simple and hassle-free.

Nomad Mini is surrounded by a foam shell that provides inherent buoyancy and ensures the unit is unsinkable. For added buoyancy, stability, and visibility, Nomad Mini can be used with the Dry Bag Float or the Floatation Tube.

Nomad Mini's new 86Wh battery

The Battery Pack

Nomad Mini is powered by a newly enhanced 86Wh lithium-ion battery pack that is both swappable and rechargeable. The pack, along with its connector, boasts an IP67 rating, making it well-equipped to handle saltwater environments. This battery is airline-friendly, fitting within carry-on luggage restrictions for most airlines. A handy charge-level indicator is seamlessly integrated onto the battery for effortless monitoring. When equipped with the DiveBoost Kit, divers have the option to add an extra battery, further extending their dive time. The Nomad Mini is designed to reach depths of up to 15 feet with just a single battery. To maximize your diving experience, consider stocking up on extra battery packs to ensure uninterrupted underwater exploration!

Note:  Newer batteries are required to power Nomad Mini on a single battery. If you are powering Nomad Mini with older batteries, you will need to use multiple batteries and the DiveBoost Kit. Batteries shipped with Nomad Mini were made in 2023.

Nomad Mini's Attachable Floatation Tube or dry bag

Dry Bag Float or Flotation Tube

The Nomad Mini comes with the versatile Dry Bag Float, which offers buoyancy, visibility, and waterproof storage. This included accessory features two air reservoirs that can be easily inflated by mouth, providing an impressive 44 lb of buoyancy. It also features a convenient waterproof compartment for storing your dry items during your dive.

For those looking for additional buoyancy and visibility, we offer the Flotation Tube as an optional accessory. The Flotation Tube is designed to enhance your diving experience with Nomad Mini, providing extra buoyancy and improved visibility in the water. Please note that the Flotation Tube is a separate accessory and can be purchased separately to complement your Nomad Mini dive system.

Nomad Mini dive system with air hose for underwater breathing

The Air Hose

Nomad’s 30-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).

Frequently Asked Questions About Nomad Mini Diving


Yes, the Nomad Mini comes with a foam shell that provides inherent buoyancy for diving. To enhance buoyancy, stability, and visibility during offshore dives, we offer two options: the included Dry Bag Float or the Flotation Tube. The Dry Bag Float is included with the Nomad Mini, while the Flotation Tube can be purchased separately for optimal diving experience.


The newer Nomad Mini batteries, which have a 20% increased capacity at 86Wh, are designed to power the Nomad Mini using just one battery. If you are utilizing the older 72Wh batteries, you will need to use the DiveBoost Kit in conjunction with two batteries. Please note that batteries shipped with Nomad Mini were manufactured in 2023.


The DiveBoost™ Kit is equipped with advanced electronics that enable the simultaneous use of multiple lithium-ion batteries. This unique DiveBoost technology allows users to stack batteries, significantly extending your dive time. With the ability to stack up to two DiveBoost kits, you can maximize your underwater exploration. However, please note that while it extends dive time, it doesn't increase the depth rating of your Nomad Mini.


Nemo is engineered for dives up to 10 feet deep. Nomad Mini allows divers to reach depths of 15 feet and features an optional accessory for stacking batteries for extended dive time. Nomad, on the other hand, is crafted for dives up to 30 feet deep.


As long as the very top of the intake snorkel remains above the water, you will continue to receive fresh air flow from Nomad Mini. The rest of the unit can be submerged. If water does get inside the pump, no damage will be caused. Simply rinse it through with fresh water.


Absolutely! The lithium battery used is under the limit and accepted by most airlines in carry-on luggage so that you can travel around the world with Nomad Mini. The Nomad Mini inside its backpack will fit as carry-on luggage, or you can check the unit while bringing the battery as carry-on. Be prepared by bringing your Air Travel Certificate, which you can download here:


Certainly! When diving in shallow waters with the Nomad Mini, you can anticipate extended run times. Plus, you can coil up any excess hose length for a streamlined experience, keeping the Nomad Mini conveniently close. For dives less than 10 feet deep, the Nemo can deliver similar or even longer run times. Though it's worth noting that the Nomad Mini is already engineered for dives up to 15 feet deep with a single battery. The DiveBoost™ Kit further enhances the diving experience by allowing users to add an additional battery for increased dive time

  1. Joel Masson (verified owner)

    Great product and excellent customer service! I’ve used the Nomad Mini with the DiveBoost kit a few times now for my underwater metal detecting and it has been an absolute pleasure to use. It takes a bit getting used to regulating your breathing correctly but after the first time it feels natural. I would highly recommend!
