Nomad is well known for its cases, cables, and chargers for the iPhone, but now the company has a new gig.

In response to the coronavirus epidemic, Nomad is diverting its manufacturing power away from accessories and now is making medical supplies, including much-needed surgical masks. 

Nomad announced this effort on its website and confirmed that it’s ready to start taking orders today. But before you take out your credit card, medical professionals will have first dibs on the masks, followed by first responders and essential businesses.

The masks are a three-layer version suitable for minimal contact situations, unlike the more protective N95 masks. 

The company isn’t doing this to make money. Instead, it’s focused on supplying those who are on the frontlines in the battle against the coronavirus.

Not only will it be making much needed medical masks, but Nomad also will be donating any profits it earns from the masks to the fight against COVID-19.

People who want to support this effort can donate money to help create masks at a higher volume. A single $5 donation will help produce 12 masks, while a $20 donation will fund up to 50 masks.


Apple is doing its part by donating over 10 million N95 masks to medical professionals in Europe and the United States. It is also giving money to coronavirus relief efforts both in hard-hit Italy and its local Silicon Valley community.
