  • Nomad has launched the Base Station Mini Magnetic Charger.
  • The new version of the Base Station Mini adds support for Apple's MagSafe charging technology.
  • iPhone 12 owners can charge their iPhone at speeds up to 7.5 watts.

Nomad is out with a solid update to a great charging accessory.

Today, the company announced the Base Station Mini Magnetic Charger, the successor to the Base Station Mini. The new version features compatibility for Apple's MagSafe charging technology.

The new Base Station Mini ensures the perfect alignment every time with magnets that align with the MagSafe magnets in your iPhone. This makes it easy to find the charging spot, whether you're too busy reading an email or just trying to get back to sleep. Just feel for the magnetic snap to place and keep doing what you're doing.

iMore has reviewed the original Base Station Mini and, if the new version is anything like the original, Nomad and wireless charging fans should have high expectations.

The new version is everything owners have loved about the previous Base Station Mini, but adds in the magic of Apple's MagSafe charging technology. With the new charger, Nomad has added support for charging up to 7.5 watts with MagSafe and the magnetic connection for guaranteed optimized charging. Unfortunately, it is full MagSafe which offers 15 watts of wireless charging.
