Nomad Launches Base Station Hub With Magnetic Alignment

Nomad today announced the launch of a new version of its Base Station Hub, with the updated option featuring a magnetic alignment feature.

The new Base Station Hub has the same three coil design as the prior model, but it now has built-in magnets to help you better position an iPhone on a Qi hotspot for the most efficient charging. Each wireless coil supports up to 10W, and for the ‌iPhone‌ models, that means the Hub is able to charge them at a maximum of 7.5W.

In addition to spots for charging up to two devices wirelessly, the Base Station Hub is also equipped with a 7.5W USB-A port and an 18W USB-C port for wired charging, allowing for a total of four devices to charge at one time.

The Base Station Hub is available from the Nomad website for $120.

Thank you for not calling it MagSafe-compatible, but rather wireless charging with magnetic alignment.

This is the most accurate description yet.

I'd rather take that $120, buy a nice pair of Nikes, and go hit the club.

It might literally kill a manufacturer to make an iPhone+Watch-only dock that looks this nice - apparently.

Magnets only to align. Product is costly too.
