At this point in time it’s anyone’s guess as to when the AirPower wireless charging mat by Apple will be released, although we have heard that a launch in March is possible. However if you’re looking for a wireless charger, there are many out there right now, but accessory maker Nomad has something new in store.
The company has recently taken the wraps off its Wireless Travel Stand charger. According to Nomad, the device will play nicely with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, basically it will support Apple’s iPhones that have wireless charging. However given that the wireless charging iPhones rely on Qi, we suppose you could use other Qi-compatible handsets with this charger as well, although whether or not it’ll fit nicely on the stand is another story.
That being said, the Wireless Travel Stand is pretty stylish as far as wireless chargers are concerned. It features a rubber base to keep it sturdy and from moving around too much, it is also made out of aluminum, and also sports Horween leather for its surface to prevent any scratches to your phone, if you are using it without a cover. It is also capable of fast charging with 7.5W of output.
The stand can also be collapsed into a horizontal position if you’d prefer charging your phone that way. Unfortunately the downside to the stand is that it uses a wall plug as opposed to Lightning, USB-C, or micro USB. This means that you’ll need to bring an extra cable when you travel. However if you don’t have an issue with that, you can head on over to Nomad’s website to place your order where it will set you back $60.
