Made for MagSafe vs MagSafe Compatible 

Here at Nomad, we're proud to offer two types of MagSafe chargers - Made for MagSafe and MagSafe Compatible. Both offer fast and reliable magnetic charging from thoughtfully designed, high-quality bodies.

The primary difference between the two is charging speed. Our Made for MagSafe chargers are built with official Apple MFi technology for fast charging up to 15W. On the other hand, our MagSafe Compatible chargers offer a steady and reliable 7.5W charge - perfect for longer overnight or workday charging.

Charging Tips

Base features magnetic wireless charging technology that charges iPhone 12 and beyond at up to 7.5W and Google and Android devices at up to 15W. To begin charging, simply snap your device into place on the charger. 

Base works with iPhone 8 and beyond and any Qi-enabled wireless charging device, but magnetic alignment is only available for iPhone 12 and beyond. 

Note, Base does not include a 20W USB-C power adapter. Not including an adapter in Base's packaging saves on environmental waste, keeps packaging sizes smaller, and lowers our carbon footprint. Learn more about our environmental efforts here.


To reset the unit, unplug Base from the outlet, wait 3 seconds, then plug it back in. 

If you continue to experience issues with your Base, please reach out to our Support Team at [email protected]. We prefer to help you solve technical issues over email as opposed to phone so we can request photos and videos and send you step-by-step troubleshooting instructions you can then look back on if needed. 


Nomad offers a 2-year limited warranty for all Nomad products with the exception of our cables, for which we offer a 5-year limited warranty. Both warranties cover any manufacturing or workmanship defects but do not cover damages that may have resulted from normal wear and tear, misuse/abuse, or modification of the product. If your Nomad product is defective, we will help you to exchange it for a brand-new replacement. We cannot guarantee that the exact style or product will be in stock at the time that your warranty claim is processed, but we wouldn't want you to be left empty-handed! In this case, we will offer store credit rather than a replacement. The store credit never expires and will be valid for any product on our website. For more information on our warranty policy, please visit our Warranty page. 

Note, Nomad will not be liable for any damages that may result from the use of any Nomad product. Our warranty does not cover the repair or replacement of property such as electronic devices and/or other personal property. 

Disposal of Product and Packaging

Packaging: The inner cardboard tray is recyclable and can be placed in your recycling bin. The outer box and attached foam inserts are not recyclable. These components can be disposed of in your standard waste.

Product: Should your product become damaged or defective, and is no longer covered under warranty, please responsibly dispose of your device at an e-waste facility.
