Most of the leather used by Nomad comes from a famous tannery called Horween in Chicago.I have a box made of this kind of leather, wrapped around me iPhone 12 Pro MaxThis material feels soft and will form a beautiful patina over time. It also provides good protection. The polycarbonate body of the protective case has a thermoplastic elastomer bumper on both sides, and the front edge is slightly raised to prevent the screen from touching the desktop when the phone is facing down.The shell is lined with protective microfiber, and the shell is embedded with a magnet array, so you can combine it with Any MagSafe accessories.
I have this sturdy casing to protect mine AirPods Professional Edition For more than a year, it is still in good condition. The leather feels much better than Apple’s smooth case. Wireless charging still works, and you can still reset the Bluetooth connection by pressing the button on the back without removing the case. There is even a hole for the LED light to shine through.
We like this case enough to include it in our Guide to the best iPad accessories. It provides front and back leather protection for your slate and keeps the edges covered. It will not block the space of the Apple Pencil. Since it is a portfolio, you can use it as a stand to support your iPad. It is suitable for the current iPad Air, 3rd and 4th generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and 1st and 2nd generation 11-inch iPad Pro. (In short, it is only compatible with the first two iPad Pro devices, not compatible 2021 models.)
If you don’t want the folio cover and only want to protect the back, please grab Rugged housing instead.
Nomad wireless charger and cable
In many Wireless charger I have tested it and Nomad’s Base Station Pro is the one left on my desk. It uses relatively new technology from a company called Aira, allowing you to wirelessly charge your device anywhere on the surface-you don’t need to place it in a very specific location, and you don’t need to worry about the slightest misalignment that will prevent you. Charge the device. Really convenient! (you can Read more about this technology here.) This cushion can charge three devices, such as two mobile phones and a wireless earbud box, and its leather top looks very, very elegant. Please note: I have charged dozens of mobile phones on this matter, but it seems that the only problematic phone is a Google Pixel device. If you have one, take something else, such as the charger below.
I will add this little charger to our Guide to the best wireless chargers soon. It does not use the same Aira technology as the above charger, but it is very compact and you won’t have a hard time finding a suitable location. It is very attractive and includes a USB-C to USB-C cable.
