With Apple’s long-awaited AirPower charging mat potentially being scrapped, other companies are being given a chance to sell similar devices to those of us that are sick of waiting. There are quite a few products already on Amazon that set out to let you charge three devices wirelessly, but most of them have quirky designs, few reviews or are being manufactured by unknown brands. Those factors make placing your $1,000 iPhone on top of them questionable, at best. With the unveiling of Nomad’s Base Station: Hub Edition, we are given an option from a reputable brand that is well-designed, can charge two devices wirelessly, and two more via 7.5W USB-A and 18W USB-C Power Delivery-enabled ports. expand full story

Nomad is a byword for quality Apple accessories. You can currently save on some great Apple Watch gear through 9to5Toys Specials, with the Nomad Stand for $34 shipped and the Nomad Pod portable battery pack $34.
Charging is a nightly routine for Apple Watch owners, and the Nomad Stand provides a neat power point. Made from aircraft-grade aluminum, this elegant dock is small enough to fit on any nightstand. It works with your regular charger, with a hidden cable tidy, and the non-slip base is weighted with copper. The Stand comes in two colors, and is ideal for preventing scratches on your favorite desk.
For topping up during the day, you can pack the Nomad Pod. This pocket-sized charger holds 1800mAh of extra power, with a magnetic dock for your Apple Watch. Unscrewing the aluminum top reveals a USB output for charging your iPhone or iPad. The battery also hides your charging cable, and has three lights to indicate how much it has left to give.

Nomad via Amazon is offering its NomadPlus power accessory for $14.95 plus $4.49 shipping. With a total price of $19.44, today’s deal represents a savings of more than 50% off its original price of $39.99, which is by far the lowest we’ve seen. This is the first generation version of NomadPlus, but the only differences between this and the newer model is that its status indicator lights are green (as opposed to white) and are slightly dimmer. There’s no difference in performance or feature set. Head to the updated product page to check out its 4.3 star rating or our review for even more insight.
NomadPlus adds an 1800mAh portable battery and pass-though USB port to your existing Apple 5W USB Power Adapter (included with every iPhone). The result is a single gadget that seamlessly charges your iPhone and its internal battery (in sequence, not simultaneously) while plugged into a wall outlet. When you’re ready to hit the road, just unplug the NomadPlus from the wall, pop the Apple USB plug out and you’ve got yourself a power bank. You can expect to gain an extra 70% of power when charging your iPhone 6 off the battery.
