Nomad has been on a roll releasing accessories that work with Apple’s MagSafe Mount. In April, they released a horizontal MagSafe Mount. Reviews were excellent but often included a request — people wanted a vertical version, so they could see their iPhone while it wirelessly charged. The new Nomad MagSafe Mount Stand has just been announced; it allows you to view your mounted iPhone either horizontally or vertically.

I’ve pretty much gone all-in with MagSafe for iPhone, and I’m discovering an entirely new range of accessories that make using my iPhone 12 Pro even more convenient. The $39.99 Twelve South Forte for iPhone with MagSafe is one such accessory. It offers clean lines and an adjustable viewing angle. You will, however, need to supply your own MagSafe charger.
As I noted in my recent review of Moment’s MagSafe mount accessories, I’ve recently developed an appreciation for Apple’s MagSafe charging system. Those mounts do a great job of holding your iPhone, but they don’t address the need to charge your iPhone while it’s mounted. The Nomad Leather Cover for MagSafe Charger does.
Scosche has released a simple accessory that takes your MagSafe Charger in new directions; the Scosche MagicMount for MagSafe Charger is a unique solution that lets you mount and use your MagSafe Charger in the car. Whether you mount it on your windshield or dashboard, the MagicMount will keep your phone in view and, when you arrive at your destination, fully charged.
We take our phones everywhere and constantly rely on them as a lifeline to the world. As a result, a plethora of portable power banks and accessories for holding and propping our mobile phones has exploded with options. Einova thinks they have a solution that solves several problems at once with their Einova Power Ring Qi power bank. Is this the solution you’ve been looking for? Read on to find out!
If there’s one thing we always need, it’s more space to charge our devices. Between my iPhone, my Apple Watch, Airpods, and other devices, there’s always something on a charger at my desk. The Logitech Powered 3-in-1 Dock capably charges multiple devices AND reduces the clutter of wires everywhere!
I didn’t fully appreciate the MagSafe connector on my iPhone 12 until I was sent a collection of Moment MagSafe accessories to try. If you weren’t aware, Moment makes some of the best smartphone photography gear and accessories available. The Moment MagSafe accessories I’ll be telling you about today are great, and I can’t imagine going back to the old system for connecting my iPhone to a tripod, securing it in the car, or attaching cold shoe accessories like a microphone.
Wireless chargers have become quite commonplace for most of us these days. In my house and on my desk at work, these chargers are usually boring plastic pucks that I toss my device on as an afterthought. What if there was a wireless charger that added to the aesthetic of your home or workspace? The Eggtronic Einova Wireless Charging Stone does just that.
When Apple’s new AirTag’s were released, my Tile Trackers became obsolete. Apple’s approach to locating keys and other everyday daily carries is more tightly integrated with iOS in ways Tile can’t match. But Apple offers no way to attach the pricey trackers to your daily carry. The new Nomad Leather Loop for AirTag elegantly solves that problem.
When I purchased my iPhone 12 Pro Max back in 2020, one of the highlighted features was the MagSafe Charging. I went out of my way to purchase Apple’s charging puck for it at an astounding $39, but unfortunately, the lack of a dock option made it less useful than I had hoped. To the rescue came the Belkin MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charger with MagSafe 15W Charging.
Logitech is one of the leaders in computer peripherals for a good reason; their products look great and work extremely well. When I was creating my work from home setup, I knew it would only be complete with Logitech behind it, which is why I was so excited to check out the Logitech MX Keys and MX Master 3 mouse.
Nomad has just introduced a great way to upgrade your desk or nightstand aesthetics. Apple’s MagSafe chargers for iPhones are the simplest and fastest way to charge the device, but they are boring white discs. The Nomad Leather Cover for MagSafe wraps the plastic disc MagSafe charger in Horween leather and, in the process, gives them some style.
I recently reviewed the Cleer Ally Plus II wireless earbuds, and they are a fantastic choice for anyone on the go. The Cleer Enduro ANC Noise Cancelling Headphones provide a more robust sound profile and a staggering 60 hours of battery life for over-the-ear fans. This battery life is with using active noise canceling and with some fantastic audio performance. Let’s take a look.
Cleer has released the second iteration of the Ally Plus true wireless earbuds. With long battery life and active noise canceling, and other features, the Cleer Ally Plus II True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earbuds strive to be perfect for anyone on the go. The Cleer+ app allows for adjustments and getting settings perfect for just about any situation.
When we first met Nomad, they were a startup with one cool but simple accessory for the iPhone. In the years since, their catalog has grown exponentially and, with it, our appreciation of their design sense and commitment to creating quality products. Their newest offerings include a Moment Rugged Case for the iPhone 12 Series and Rugged Cases for the Pixel Buds A-Series.
Before smartphones starting touting the massive internal batteries that they have right now, you would never catch me without a small battery pack in my back pocket. While I may not carry them as much anymore due to the pandemic, with the world opening back up, I’ll need something in my everyday carry to keep my devices juiced up, and here’s why I think the INTELLI ScoutPro 240 Watt Powerbank may be the best solution.
Leave it to Apple to release a $29 tracker accessory with no native way to affix it to the item you want to track. For that, you need to spend at least $29 more on Apple’s AirTag Loop. And while the Loop holds the AirTag, it does nothing to protect it. Thankfully, there is now a line of Nomad AirTag Accessories.
Around Earth Day, we told you about the Incipio Organicore iPhone and Samsung Galaxy cases; they’re biodegradable, and the Eden Project has a 1 for 1 promise to plant a tree for each case sold. We’ve had an iPhone 11 Incipio Organicore Case in for review. It turns out that Organicore is more than just environmental promises; it’s also excellent smartphone protection!
Announced today, one of our favorite accessory makers is adding to its fleet of wireless charging accessories with its most minimalistic charger yet, the Nomad Base Station Mini.
JBL’s portable Bluetooth speakers have always been impressive, and each successive model has gotten better and better. The JBL Charge 5, the latest generation of their wildly popular portable speaker with a powerbank, is their best portable speaker yet. It blasts music, recharges phones, and it’s ready to hit the beach, the mountains, or your next backyard barbecue.
I recently started cleaning out a junk drawer, and I’ll admit, I was pretty ashamed of how many old phone cases I had squirreled away. I can’t tell you where some of those phones are, but if you need a case for a 6-year-old Motorola phone…you should have asked me last week before I tossed a bunch of junk. All joking aside, the reality is that our gadgets have a pretty big ecological footprint. It’s possible to protect your phone and ease your environmental guilt all at once with Incipio Organicore cases.
