It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Nomad‘s products. Their cables are among the best you can purchase, and their cases have saved my iPhone and iPad more often than once. Their charges are also excellent, and their most recent offering, the Nomad Base One MagSafe Charger, is their most refined yet. It’s beautiful… and that’s just the beginning.
Anker was founded in 2011; since then, the company has become a powerhouse in the mobile accessory market and the world’s number one charging brand. We included a number of their new offerings in our 2021 Holiday Gift Guide, but I wanted to dig deeper into the Anker 633 Magnetic Wireless Charger (MagGo), a 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Station.
Nomad’s Base Station wireless chargers are among the best and most elegant wireless chargers available. I love their sleek design and the ability to charge multiple devices simultaneously. The Nomad Base Station Hub Edition with Magnetic Alignment is all that, but it is easier to use than ever.
Some time ago, I reviewed Twelve South’s PowerPic. A traditional wooden frame that doubles as a Qi wireless charger, it’s rather inspired. Now the company has released their new Twelve South PowerPic mod Wireless Charger. It is an elegant lucite frame for a 4″ by 6″ picture that hides a secret; it is also a 10W Qi charger.
My new iPhone finally arrived, and all the reviews are correct; Apple found a way to improve battery life significantly. At the same time, better battery life doesn’t mean heavy users like me won’t still want to carry an external battery. The InfinityLab InstantGo 10000 Wireless Power Bank ticks all of my boxes; it’s powerful and packed with features.
A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Master & Dynamic MW08 Sport True Wireless Earphones; they are fantastic. As a bonus, the MW08 Sport battery case is Q1 wireless charging-enabled. It only made sense then that the company also released a wireless charging pad, and they have. The Master & Dynamic MC100 Wireless Charge Pad is elegant, well-built, and perfect for charging your M&D MW08 Sport earphones.
Nomad’s wireless chargers are among the best on the market. They combine elegant design with luxury materials and look great anywhere. They recently announced their new Nomad Base Station Mini Magnetic Wireless Charger. It is small. It is powerful. And it works with Apple’s MagSafe charging system to auto-align the phone, so you get optimal charging every time.
When I do serious writing on my laptop, I use a stand to raise its screen to a comfortable level so I can work more comfortably and efficiently; raising my iPad to a similar eye level has the same impact. The Pitaka MagEZ Stand for Tablets does just that, and it can wirelessly charge your phone or earbuds.
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.
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!
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.
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.
The iPad Pro is a remarkable tablet that has become an indispensable productivity and content creation device for many of us. And while it is amazing, the right accessory makes it even better. The new Kensington StudioDock is one such accessory. It holds your iPad, charges all your devices, and connects your peripherals. At under $400, the StudioDock adds ports and other functionality that takes the iPad to new heights.
CES is typically the one time of year where there’s a little something for everyone, including things you never even knew you needed. Before today I never knew I needed an invisible, wireless smartphone charger, but now I’ve seen the Kew Labs UTS-1.
When Qi Wireless charging finally appeared on phones, there were (at least initially) a limited number of available chargers. That’s changed. There are more offerings than ever, and many of them deliver a full charge in far less time than ever. Then there is the SanDisk Ixpand Wireless Charger Sync. It’s a wireless charger and a solid-state backup device.
You’ll likely get at least one gift this holiday season that needs to be charged. Unfortunately, companies like Apple no longer include wall adapters with their phones. Thankfully, Aukey offers a range of smart, technologically advanced charging solutions. You can see all their offerings here. First, though, take a look at the four offerings they sent us to check out.
A little over a year ago, Shark Tank profiled an innovative wireless charging technology. The pitchers said they had thousands of pre-orders from one company. I immediately KNEW it must be Nomad. I was right, and Aira’s FreePower tech is in the new Nomad Base Station Pro Full-Surface Wireless Charger. It is a game-changer.
Most flagship phones offer wireless charging, which is hugely convenient when you want to set your phone down for a top-off. We’ve reviewed plenty of upright wireless charging bases, which are great for keeping at your desk, but the Pitaka Air Tray serves a dual purpose that makes it perfect for placing on a desk, bedside table, or in your home’s entryway.
It should be no surprise that Pitaka makes both Judie’s and my smartphone cases of choice. The company also makes great chargers and, as the title of this review says, their new Pitaka Air Omni 6-in-1 Charging Solution is something special. It’s currently available for backing on Kickstarter; I have an early version and love it.
Nomad makes some of the best wireless charging solutions available. I loved the original Nomad Base Station Apple Watch Edition (read my review) but missed the rear charging ports found on other Base Station models. Nomad just addressed that and just released a new version with ports galore; now you can charge pretty much all your devices at once.
A few weeks ago, I shared the news that our friends at Nomad had released a new wireless charging stand. The Nomad Base Station Stand is a premium wireless charger whose thoughtful design and premium features make it stand out in an ever-more crowded market. Now that I have one in and I can share some of my personal impressions.
