Nomad's Base Station Pro has the ability to wirelessly charge three devices at once, including compatible iPhone models and AirPods. There are no "hot spots" to target either, allowing devices to be placed anywhere on the surface to begin charging.

This discount code is only for the new and full-priced Base Station Pro and will not apply to any other products, including the refurbished version of the Base Station Pro.

The accessory supports up to 7.5W charging speed and is powered by a 30W USB-C power adapter. The surface is made from a black padded leather and its framed by an aluminum finish, with no-slip grip on the bottom to ensure stability.

With the addition of an Apple Watch Mount, you can also add Apple Watch charging to the Base Station Pro. It costs $14.95, but does not include an Apple Watch Charger. You'll have to thread your own into the Apple Watch Mount, and then you can charge your Apple Watch in Nightstand Mode on the back portion of the Base Station Pro.

* Limited compatibility with:

* iPhone 12 mini: ~8.0 hours charge time
* iPhone 12: ~8.5 hours charge time
* iPhone 12 Pro: ~8.5 hours charge time
* iPhone 12: Pro Max: ~9.5 hours charge time

* The magnets in the iPhone 12 series have also been found to reduce charging efficiency, resulting in slower charging times. All devices enter a slower charging mode once the battery level exceeds 80% due to battery chemistry limitations, which is especially pronounced in Base Station Pro.

I’m shocked so many have had poor experiences with this. I have a base station pro and I use it for an iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 8 and AirPods pro every single day. After the latest firmware update, it works beautifully and I love being able to place my device anywhere unlike traditional wireless chargers.

the only time it doesn’t charge my iphone to 100% is when apples optimized charging feature prevents it from charging past 80% through no fault of the charger.

I highly recommend this product and at the $99 price it’s a steal!

For anyone with an iPhone 12 series, I recommend avoiding this product, it's very problematic and I returned mine.

I'd recommend sticking with MagSafe for iPhone 12.

I’m actually very happy with mine. Works all the time no matter where I place the iPhone 12 Pro Max or AirPod headphones. Not really fussed about charging speed so have never checked it as it just sits in my desk through the day for top up charging.
Was even tempted to get another one at this price. (Tested the cart and code does work)
