Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Macworld.com: “Nomad Base Station Pro review: Luxury wireless charging at a luxury price”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

For most of you, that’s going to be the end of the review. Devices to charge your phone are meant to be inexpensive. A good wireless charging pad shouldn’t cost over $50, and a multi-device charger not much more than $100 if it’s got really nice build quality.

The Base Station Pro is no ordinary charging pad. It’s a premium aluminum-and-leather affair that incorporates the FreePower technology from Aria to charge up to three devices no matter where you place them.

Does that matter to you? Is it enough to pay several times what you’d pay for other name-brand wireless chargers? Value is a very personal thing, but no matter how nice the Base Station Pro is, we can’t imagine paying such exorbitant prices for the mild convenience of free placement.

On the outside, the Base Station Pro looks a lot like Nomad’s other goods. It’s a hefty aluminum frame with a nice leather pad. The build quality is excellent. It looks and feels a lot like something Apple would make.

But there are plenty of nice-looking wireless charging pads out there. What makes this one special is the Aria FreePower technology inside. With 18 overlapping coils built into a printed circuit board, with custom power control circuitry and software, you can place an iPhone or AirPods wireless charging case anywhere on the pad and, a second later, it’ll begin charging at up to 7.5 watts.
