Nomadic cases

Nomad Rugged Case with MagSafe

Nomad’s Summer Sale Knocks 30 Percent Off Phone Gear Sitewide. Most of the leathers used by Nomad come from a reputable Chicago tannery named Horween. I have a case made from this leather wrapped around my iPhone 12 Pro Max. The material is soft and develops a nice patina over time. It also offers decent protection. The polycarbonate body of the case has a thermoplastic elastomer bumper on the sides, and the front edges are raised slightly to prevent your screen from touching your desk when you place your phone face down. The inside of the case is lined with protective microfiber and the case has a set of magnets, so you can use it with any MagSafe accessory. Summer Sale Knocks 30 Percent Off Phone Gear Sitewide.

Don’t have an iPhone 12? Nomad still sells these cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and Google Pixel 4.

I have had this rugged case protecting my AirPods Pro for over a year and it is still in excellent condition. Leather is so much nicer than Apple’s shiny case. Wireless charging still works and you can always press the button on the back to reset Bluetooth connectivity without having to remove the case. There is even a hole for the LED light to shine through.

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

Summer Sale Knocks 30 Percent Off Phone Gear Sitewide, We liked this case enough to include it in our guide to the best iPad accessories. It has front and back leather protection for your slate, and it keeps the edges covered. It does not block the space for the Apple Pencil. Since this is a folio, you can use it as a kickstand to support the iPad. It is available for the current generation iPad Air, 3rd and 4th generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and 1st and 2nd generation 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 protector, hang the sturdy case instead.

Nomad wireless chargers and cables

Nomadic base station Pro

Summer Sale Knocks 30 Percent Off Phone Gear Sitewide. Of the many wireless chargers I’ve tested, Nomad’s Base Station Pro is the one that stays on my desk. It uses relatively new technology from a company called Aira that allows you to wirelessly charge a device anywhere on the surface. A real comfort! (You can read more about this tech here.) This pad can charge around three devices, such as two phones and a wireless headphone case, and it’s very, very stylish with its leather top. Just a note: I’ve loaded dozens of phones on this thing, but the only phones that seem to have issues are the Google Pixel devices. If you have one, grab something else, like the charger below.

I’ll be adding this little charger to our guide to the best wireless chargers soon. It doesn’t use the same Aira technology as the charger above, but it’s so compact that you won’t have a hard time finding the right spot. It is attractive and includes a USB-C to USB-C cable.

Nomad offers other wireless chargers that we haven’t tested, including a stand, base station without Aira technology but with additional USB ports and built-in Apple Watch chargers.
