Nomad unveils Base Station Pro wireless charger featuring full surface charging

Wireless charging can be pretty handy, but it can also be a bit of a hassle as you try to find that sweet spot on the bad to actually successfully charge your devices.

In an effort to help alleviate that problem, Nomad has come up with a new wireless charging pad that can hold up to two phones (and one smaller accessory, like the wireless AirPods charging case) at the same time. This is the Base Station Pro, and it’s designed from the ground up to reinvent “what it means to charge wirelessly”. Meaning, no more having to put your device on that exact spot to get it charging.

To get there, Nomad teamed up with a company called Aira, which has been working on its own FreePower wireless charging technology for quite some time. Working together, the Base Station Pro features one seamless surface manufactured from an 18 coil matrix. The proprietary FreePower algorithms work behind-the-scenes to locate the device as it’s placed on the mat. That means you can charge up to three devices in any orientation — no more having to have your phone or wireless charging case just right.

Here are the major bullet points from Nomad’s announcement regarding the Aira FreePower technology:

  • Full surface charging freedom with its foundational different wireless power coil matrix
  • Precision power delivery algorithms for rapid device detection and dynamic sweet spots
  • Intelligent multi-device charging that individually optimizes power for each device

The Base Station Pro matches the other Base Station products from Nomad in that it has a slate gray aluminum chassis and a black padded leather charging surface. Each device set upon the new wireless charging pad can charge simultaneously at up to 5W each, and the Base Station Pro is powered by a 27W USB-C PD charger, which is included in the box.

Nomad is soft-launching the new Base Station Pro directly on its website beginning today. That means you can hand over your email address to get notified about the wireless charging pad’s launch as soon as pre-orders go live.

And speaking of, pre-orders for the new Base Station Pro will begin sometime in November.

This looks like a fantastic wireless charging station, especially in the way that it won’t require owners to set their devices down in a specific spot or orientation to actually get their product to charge. 5W may not be the fastest wireless charging option out there, but it should certainly be enough for most consumers.

And with Apple’s AirPower a no show, finding a solid alternative is certainly worth it.

No word on pricing just yet, though. What do you think of the new Base Station Pro form Nomad? Think you’ll pick one up?
