There are many wireless chargers available out there, but if you want something that’s a little classier looking, then there is a good chance you might have come across Nomad’s Base Station wireless charging mat.
It works like a regular wireless charger where you place your phone on top of it and charge. However, the company has since updated its Base Station charger in the new Base Station Hub where they have added MagSafe support, although they’re referring to it as “magnetic alignment”. This means that unlike the previous model where you’d have to find the sweet spot, this uses magnets to align the iPhone.
That being said, given that this supports MagSafe, it means that it only works with the iPhone 12 and later models, so those of you holding onto the iPhone 11 or older, then this probably isn’t the model for you. According to Nomad, it will support wireless charging for two devices at once, and two wired.
It will offer up to 10W of wireless charging speeds (7.5W for the iPhone), so it’s not the fastest charger out there for non-iPhone users. Aesthetically, the Base Station Hub looks pretty much the same as the previous model. It has padded leather for the wireless charging surface and there are also LEDs to indicate charging that can dim at night.
It is priced at $119.95 so head on over to Nomad’s website if you’d like to get your hands on it.
