Apple started supporting wireless charging with the iPhone 8, and continues to do so with all of its newer phones. Wireless chargers are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and designs Some of them look more industrial than others, and then there's the newly-announced Nomad Base Station, which is a beautifully designed wireless charging pad. The company is now accepting pre-orders for it, and it will officially begin shipping on October 1.
It has a modern design with a padded leather surface to place your phone, LED charging indicators, and an ambient light sensor that dims the LEDs at night. It has three high-power charging coils inside which allow it to charge two iPhones at once. There are also two USB ports on it, one USB-A and one USB-C PD port that has an 18W output.
It's set to debut at $99.99, which is no doubt higher than what we've seen on other wireless charging pads. If you want another option that offers a unique design, the iOttie iON wireless fast charger is worth considering, though do note that it only charges one phone at a time. There's also the JE Qi triple wireless charging pad that comes in at $36, though it has a more industrial basic design.
If looks really matter to you, waiting for the Nomad option is the way to go.
