Like many of Nomad's cases, the Wireless Travel Stand has a luxurious Horween leather surface. This provides a smooth, scratch-free surface for your iPhone, which is important if you aren't using a case. And it looks great when not in use, which is important for your bedside or desk.

The charger doesn't cut corners on charging, either, with 7.5 Watts for fast charging, supported on iOS 11.2 and newer. You can use the included aluminum kickstand to display your phone and use it while charging, or snap the kickstand on the bottom of the charger and use it as a flat charger and take it on the road. Just remember to bring the included charging brick as it does not use a traditional USB port or cable.

Pros

  • Soft-touch Horween leather surface
  • 7.5 Watt fast charging
  • Collapsible kickstand for travel and flat usage
  • Looks great
  • Anti-skid footing

Cons

  • Proprietary charger
  • One color (slate gray)

Final Verdict

You don't have to settle for a cheap plastic wireless charger, thanks to the Wireless Travel Stand from Nomad.
