Nomad Unveils New 'Base Station Stand' Wireless Charger for iPhone and AirPods

Nomad today unveiled the Base Station Stand, a single device wireless charger designed to charge Qi-based products like the iPhone and the AirPods.

The Base Station Stand, priced at $100, can only charge one device at a time, but it is equipped with two charging coils to offer both horizontal or vertical ‌iPhone‌ charging as well as ‌AirPods‌ and AirPods Pro charging.


Most stand-based Qi wireless chargers are equipped with one coil and are meant to charge the ‌iPhone‌ only in an upright orientation, so a stand that can charge in either orientation and also has the capacity to charge ‌AirPods‌ is useful.

The Base Station Stand offers up to 10W of charging, though Apple's iPhones max out at 7.5W. It ships with a USB-A to USB-C cable, it features a machined aluminum frame and a leather charging pad, and it comes with an 18W wall adapter with US, UK, and EU plugs.


The Base Station Stand can be purchased from the Nomad website starting today.

$100 vs $12 because I can turn my iPhone sideways?

Pass.

It's one of those many items where I think, "It's nice, but not $100 nice."

An $80 cosmetic upgrade to my Anker charging stands, which charge my phone in portrait or landscape, and also my AirPods Pro.

Finally someone realized charging stands need power buttons. Because the fact that I need to put my phone somewhere doesn't mean that on every such occasion I also want to charge the damn thing.

But yeah, the price is stupid. When did they last take a look around on Amazon?

Battery life.


A user will be looking for another phone by the time a battery shows any real degradation. ('https://www.pcmag.com/news/357987/charging-your-phone-overnight-battery-myths-debunked')

Also, yes, the price is a bit outrageous for something as rudimentary as an upright Qi charger. I'll wait for the IKEA version to come out at $5.99.

After all, I just need it to charge my phone.

Except the link you provided has nothing to do with mid-day few minutes charges all the time. It talks about overnight charging, completely different story.


Sure, but still very related.

Topping off the battery or keeping it on the charger won't hinder battery life to the extent it used to in the past.


It makes charging easier. ('https://www.apple.com/batteries/why-lithium-ion/')
Charge your Apple lithium-ion battery whenever you want. There’s no need to let it discharge 100% before recharging. Apple lithium-ion batteries work in charge cycles. You complete one charge cycle when you’ve used (discharged) an amount that equals 100% of your battery’s capacity — but not necessarily all from one charge. For instance, you might use 75% of your battery’s capacity one day, then recharge it fully overnight. If you use 25% the next day, you will have discharged a total of 100%, and the two days will add up to one charge cycle. It could take several days to complete a cycle. The capacity of any type of battery will diminish after a certain amount of recharging. With lithium-ion batteries, the capacity diminishes slightly with each complete charge cycle. Apple lithium-ion batteries are designed to hold at least 80% of their original capacity for a high number of charge cycles, which varies depending on the product.
