Base Station Apple Watch Edition contains three 7.5W charge coils under a padded leather surface, which the company says lets users choose between multiple charging directions. In the top left corner of the device there is a stand for Apple Watch that charges the smartwatch in night mode and supports both closed loop and open loopband.
Nomad says base station Apple Watch Edition can load up to three devices at the same time, probably referring to two Qi-compatible iPhones and one Apple Watch but it’s unclear how a second iPhone fits on the carpet when Apple Watch is being loaded. Nomad seems to confirm this in its FAQ about the tripod, saying that while it supports up to three devices, it’s designed to conveniently charge 1
Apple Watch and 1 phone simultaneously. “

We recently got our hands on the original Nomad base station and shared our thoughts in a review on the YouTube channel MacRumors . While the leather surface lacked a reliable grip for fall-free iPhones and finding the place of charging proved fine, we were largely impressed with Nomad’s accessories thanks to its design and additional port options on the back.
For the ports it is worth noting the updated base station Apple Watch Edition seems to have dug out the extra USB A and USB C ports on the back of the device. For those interested, the new accessory can be purchased on Nomad’s website today for 119.95 USD.
