NOMAD Base Station Wireless Charger REVIEW

DETAILS

The Base Station is designed to provide a sleek, modern charging hub for wireless charging. It has 3 high-powered charging coils built into its pad. It can charge 1 or 2 phones wirelessly at the same time. In addition to the wireless charging capabilities, the Base Station has two output ports — one USB-A and one USB-C PD (18W output capacity). The charging mat can actually charge up to 4 devices simultaneously (between the wireless pad and USB ports). It provides 10W of wireless charging and has LED charging indicators to show when items are being charged. There is even an ambient light sensor included to dim the LEDs at night. The Base Station has a soft finish with its padded leather. It’s a nice surface for your phones to rest on.

USER EXPERIENCE

Like most of their products, the Base Station comes in a very classy Nomad box. I’ve always appreciated Nomad’s packaging because it reminds me a lot of Apple’s. It’s well-made and well-branded. You know when you see their packaging that you are getting a quality product on the inside. I like simplicity with products and Nomad has that down to a science. With the Base Station, there are no complicated set-up steps, you simply remove it from the packaging and plug it in. The charging mat comes with a massive power brick. The cable is connected to it permanently, but you can swap out the outlet type if you travel from country to country.

CONCLUSION

Nomad’s Base Station is a great option for wireless charging. I really love its simplicity and its sleek style. As far as functionality, I don’t really have any complaints about it. At $100 as a retail cost, I think it’s a bit higher than a standard charging pad, but as an entire hub charging station (including the USB ports), it’s a quality investment.
