Or it's just product that has become more popular recently. The apple world have been eating up the Nomads after the Airpower was canceled

Why pick this over any simple wireless charger for $20?

Legit question, not trying to shit on OP.

Bought this and returned it after a few days.

First night my phone stopped charging at %80 due to over heating, I was charging my watch and airpods also but they were at %100.

Because I had the airpods on charge, I was forced to place the phone vertically which definately is troublesome — if you are going to use this for just a watch and phone only, placing the phone horizontally is much easier to land it on the sweet spot.

Went back to a stand up wireless charger. Dealing with finding a sweet spot completely wrecks the convenience of a wireless charger.
$75/15GB + 10GB/$15

Multiple devices on one pad, all with 7.5w "fast" charging. Also helps fill the void of airpower

Yeah, friend had the same problem, returned and purchased this and it works fine, except the Airpods charger is wired

This charger and the wireless chargers for $20 that are on Amazon and where ever else aren't even comparable.

For one this charger has a built in Apple Watch charger and the wireless charger pad itself has 3 coils built in. Of course if you're only charging your one phone that the $20 chargers will more than suffice.

If you also check the nomad site, they've given it some killer reviews.

I picked this up because I have an Apple Watch and an iPhone XS and later on in the future I'll be picking up the new Air Pods with the wireless charging. Which then I'll be able to charge all 3 devices on.

I went with this:

Belkin BOOST↑UP Wireless Charging Dock for iPhone + Apple Watch

https://store.apple.com/ca/xc/product/HML52ZM/A

Pricey but the quality of product is insane, the whole base is this thick solid rubber that forces the phone into the right spot everytime, and the rubber also holds the Apple watch perfectly so you can push the bottons on it while docked. As for the airpods it comes with a USB slot for a lightning cable, sucks because can't utilize the wireless charging case, but having a cable at bedside is nice, just had to recharge my Apple TV remote
