So the refurbished Nomad II arrive this morning and it looks brand new. 1 super tiny mark on the metal cover. Total non issue. I had to reaalllyy look it over to find it.

I put silicone oil in and filled my brod.

350cc tank. Tank had 1700psi and I filled to 3600psi.

Took about 6 minutes. And the load meter on the nomad never went over 23.00. According itís suppose to be under 30.00 on the load.

Despite how loud the unit seems on YouTube videos, it is most definitely quieter than the Yong Heng. The fan is loud but once the compressor kicks on it doesnít seem so bad. Sound level must be even better if used outside.

No bucket of water needed!!

Light weight and nice carry bag.

Iím very happy with my purchase so far.

Still gots to pass 30 days of every day use. Hopefully all goes well and I donít need to send for repair or return it.

Will update again. Good or bad.

As slow as it may be it's still going to be faster and easier than hand pumping.
Hand pumping would put me completely out of the PCP game.

If I correctly remember the specs for that unit, I suspect it is the amperage.

Bad news! The unit is getting sent back to PA. After 5 successful fills the smell of something burning happened. I believe itís the power inverter on the inside. It was also making a clicking noise and the inverted fan was not turning on.

After letting it sit for a while it turned on 1 time and I shut it down. Tried turning it back on and dead again.


"dang" shame! I really liked this unit. At least it lasted through spring break.
I donít know whether to take a chance on another one or wait for the compressor JSAR using.

Plugged it in to my vehicles battery and it works fine. So that confirms the inverter on the inside burnt out.

Iím definitely going to test the heck out of it and make sure it is fully functional. 30 days should be enough to figure out if it is a smooth operator.


YH while it did work was a speedy compressor. Filled up my guns real quick. It did seem like I had a bit of oil (royal purple) getting into the HPA side and therefore into my bottle and into my barrel.. my TJ Barrel was always so filthy. I suspect it was dirty air.

tell me about it. my YH pumps out alot of dirty oilly vapor that can be seen by spraying the end fitting on a piece of paper while the pump is running. sometimes i prefer to let it spray dry for a minute then connect to fill. this happens everytime the YH suddenly stops due to overdrawing AC current. so if yours stops suddenly due to whatever reason. need to bleed it and let it spray dry before refill. since then i bought a filter unit from ebay. works better.

hope everything works out for you. i have been eyeing these units but unsure if i should jump on it.

After doing a little research online, it seems the inverter is a very common design. I could buy one off of amazon and install it myself. Wonder if its worth it or I should try using the 30 day warranty. hmmmmm

better decision is probably to use warranty. but its so tempting lol.

I agree with the warranty. Yes the inverter is a common design and quite reliable and probably easy to replace.

However there is a reason the original inverter failed. Most likely due to an overcurrent problem or even a short.

So chances are good that you replace the inverter just to have the replacement smoke.

My little experience with electronics is that is something is blowing a circuit, the problem is likely upstream somewhere.

We had a microwave at the office that blew a fuse once, some genius decided it just need a higher amperage fuse to keep working...it caught on fire.
