Nomadic cases

Nomadic room case with MagSafe

Most of the leather nom uses come from a Chicago-based tannery called Chicago Ragon. I currently have a case designed out of this leather wrapped around my iPhone 12 Pro Max, the material feels soft and develops a nice patina over time. It also provides proper protection. The polycarbonate body of the case has a thermoplastic elastomer bumper around the sides, and the front edges are also slightly tilted to prevent your screen from touching your desk when you hold your phone face down. The inside of the case is lined with a protective microfiber, and the case is embedded with an array of magnets, so you can use it with any MagSafe accessories.

Not an iPhone 12? Nomad still sells these cases for iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone XR and Google Pixel 4.

I have secured this rugged case to my AirPods Pro for over a year, and it is still in excellent condition. The leather looks much nicer than the Apple Pal’s glossy case. Don’t worry, wireless charging still works, and you press the back button to reset Bluetooth connectivity without removing the case. There is also a hole for the LED light to shine.

Nomad also sells the same case for standard AirPods and Google’s new Pixel Buds A-Series wireless earbuds, which we reviewed recently.

We liked this case enough to be included in our Best iPad Accessories Guide. It has leather protection on the front and back for your slate, and it also keeps the edges covered. It doesn’t block the space for the Apple Pull Pencil. Since it’s a folio, you can use it as a kickstand to propel the iPad forward. It is only available for the current General iPad Air, 3G- and 4th-generic 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 1st- and 2-Genon 11-inch iPad Pro. (In short, it’s only compatible with the previous two iPad Pro devices, not the 2021 models.)

If you don’t want a folio case, but just a back protection, pull the rugged case instead.

Nomadic wireless chargers and cables

Different Base Station Pro

Of the many wireless chargers I’ve tested, the No Mod’s Base Station Pro is the one that stays on my work desk. It uses a relatively new technology from a company called Ira that allows you to wirelessly charge a device anywhere on the surface – you don’t have to put it in a very specific place, or worry that even the slightest misunderstanding will stop charging your device. . True convenience! (You can read more about this tech here.) This pad can charge up to three devices such as two phones and a wireless earbuds case, and it looks very, very elegant with its leather top. Just a note: I’ve charged dozens of phones on this thing, but the only phone that has trouble is the Google Pixel devices. If you have one, pull something else like the charger below.

I will be adding this little charger to our best wireless chargers guide soon. It doesn’t use the same Ira Tech as the charger above, but it doesn’t matter; It is very compact, you will not have a hard time finding the right placement. It is sleek and includes USB-C to USB-C cable.

Naumad has other wireless chargers on sale that we haven’t tested, including a stand, a base station without Ira Tech, but devices with USB ports and additional pp and watch chargers.
