Nomad’s Base Station Pro Qi Wireless Charger includes multiple Aira FreePower charging coils that allow for a slim design without sacrificing performance. The design helps it waste less energy and generate less excess heat compared to most other options.

My colleague Chaim Gartenberg reviewed the Base Station Pro when it was released in August 2020. What sets this apart from most other Qi wireless charging pads are the Aira FreePower coils, which allow for a better connection to your device’s own charging coil. Traditional coils tend to generate more energy and heat than it takes to charge your technology, but that’s another way that Aira’s technology differs in the Base Station Pro. Chaim says in his review that “it’s practically impossible to miss when you put your phone down.”

There are a few things to know before taking the plunge with this deal: For example, if you charge an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods at the same time, they will all charge at 5W, which is the slowest standard. speed. With just an iPhone, it can reach up to 7.5W. Everything else (even Android devices that support Qi fast charging) is limited to 5W. Finally, Nomad says on the product page that the MagSafe magnets built into the iPhone 12 series drastically reduce the Base Station Pro’s charging efficiency. He expects the iPhone 12 mini to charge in about eight hours, while the larger iPhone 12 Pro Max takes about nine and a half hours.
