Nomad Debuts Magnetic Base Station Mini

Nomad today announced the launch of the Base Station Mini with Magnetic Alignment, a small single-device charger designed for Apple's iPhone 12 models.

The Base Station Mini with Magnetic Alignment features the same design as the original Base Station Mini, but it also includes integrated magnets that allow it to align more easily with MagSafe devices. This is not an official ‌MagSafe‌ accessory because ‌MagSafe‌ charging components need to be supplied from Apple and Apple has been slow getting the hardware to third-party companies.

As it is not using ‌MagSafe‌, the new Base Station Mini will charge an ‌iPhone 12‌ (and earlier iPhones) at a maximum of 7.5W, but it is a 15W charger so it can charge Qi-enabled Android smartphones more quickly. It is also compatible with AirPods and other Qi-based devices.

A USB-C cable comes along with it for charging purposes, and there's a built-in light sensor that dims at night so it's ideal for use on a night stand.

The Base Station Mini with Magnetic Alignment is available from the Nomad website for $69.95.

It's crazy that barely any companies have supported the MagSafe spec. 7.5W charging at this price is insane.

MagSafe-Compatible in the article title is quite misleading. I would look at this if it was official support and had full speed charging. 7.5W for that amount of money is insane.

Lmao is this a joke? $70 for a charger that only delivers 7.5W, despite being capable of 15W for androids. Stop it Nomad, support the MagSafe standard or don’t bother

Hey Macrumors, the title is misleading. Instead, it should be “Nomad Debuts Magnetic Base Station Mini”.
