    Already bought the Nomad version, so too late. I don’t understand a solution that doesn’t allow the Apple Watch to be charged on its side to enable nightstand mode. Maybe Apple added that in this newer version, though. 
    There is no "Nomad version." Among the differences, AirPower has more than 20 charging coils, which allows placing iPhones, AirPods, and Apple Watches anywhere on the pad for charging.  Nomad has three coils, and the device has to be placed exactly on that coil.  AirPower also allows monitoring charging state for any device on any other device.

    Nomad has been working on a true competitor, the Base Station Pro.

    It's already been covered here.

    We’re still waiting for that external (black) keyboard with the touch strip though.....

    According to the article the Base Station Pro isn't able to charge the AW.. Without that ability I don't see this as a direct competitor to Airpower.

    Not only can Base Station Pro do so with one item, but up to three items can be placed at once.

    That could be three iPhones, two iPhones and a set of AirPods, or a battery pack with an iPhone and AirPods. They can be placed in any order, in any spot, anywhere on the charger. It feels entirely natural and the way wireless chargers should be.

    The world has moved on. When Apple blows it, they really blow it.
