Nomad Debuts New Tesla Wireless Charger Made to Fit Model 3 Vehicles

by

Nomad today announced the launch of a new wireless charging accessory that's been designed specifically with new Tesla Model 3 vehicles in mind.

The Tesla Wireless Charger is a wireless charging dock developed for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and future iPhones, which fits perfectly into the Tesla Model 3 dash and connects to the two USB-A ports in the car.


With the dual USB-A connection and a built-in 6,000mAh battery, the Tesla Wireless Charger offers 2A for faster 7.5W charging for Apple's iPhones, with two wireless chargers built into the device. With the dual setup, you can wirelessly charge two devices at once. While designed for iPhone, this is a Qi wireless charging setup that will charge any Qi-based device.


An anti-slip rubber base is included to keep your devices in place while on the road, and for smaller phones, Nomad is including optional spacers. Built-in LEDs let you know if your phone is charging or fully charged at a glance.


Nomad is selling the Tesla Wireless Charger for $150, but a $20 discount is available for customers who pre-order the accessory from the Nomad website starting today. Shipments of the Tesla Wireless Charger will begin on September 1.

When I first read the headline I thought they invented a wireless charger for the Tesla itself. Imagine if you can turn your parking space into a giant QI pad that charges your car. That’s totally gonna be a thing some day.

This unfortunately - like most of BMW’s electric plans - is vapourware. Even if they seriously did sell and implement this wireless charging system the wasted power via heat and the low charging speed would offset any of the convenience. It only takes 2 seconds to plug a physical cable in with none of those drawbacks.

I’ve one of those Jeda pads ordered MONTHS via their kickstarter/website. They are taking forever to ship them. The only plus side is that Tesla are taking even longer to ship my Model 3!

Even before the BMW wireless charging there was https://www.pluglesspower.com/ came out shortly after the Leaf many years ago.
