Review: Nomad’s New All-in-One Charging Hub Includes USB-C & Wireless Charging

I reviewed the earlier version of Nomad’s USB Hub, and I liked it then, but since then, Apple introduced phones with Qi-based wireless charging, so I had to use a third-party charging pad next to my Nomad hub. RECENTLY, I was able to try the USB Hub – Wireless ($ 79.95) from Nomad, which was announced at CES and will become available to the public soon.

Nomad

Just like the old model, the new hub powers numerous devices and tucks cables (sold separately) out of sight. What is new about this model is that it includes a USB-C port for today’s newer devices and the top of the hub acts as a Qi charging pad with Fast Charge mode. Like all Nomad products, the sleek subtle design will look great on your nightstand.

Nomad

Pros

  • Powers almost anything
  • 3 USB-A ports
  • 1 USB-C port
  • Qi charging with Fast Charge mode
  • Integrated cable routing

Cons

  • Cables sold separately

Final Verdict

If you need to charge several devices at once, including USB-C and Qi-wireless charging enabled phones, the USB Hub – Wireless from Nomad does so in style.

Review: The Revolver Lens Kit Works with the iPhone X Camera & Wireless Charging

A few years ago, I tried an older version of the Revolver Lens Kit ($ 44.95–$ 70) from Ztylus. It was a clever way to add optional camera lenses to an iPhone, but I wondered how they could accommodate the new iPhone X, with its two lenses and wireless charging.

Revolver

Well, I got to see the new Revolver Lens at CES 2018 and then I had some time to try it out later. Ztylus did indeed come through, with macro, fisheye, telephoto and wide angle lenses that tuck away into the snap-on revolving system. That system attaches via magnet and when removed, the case can attach to an optional $ 9.99 vent clip via magnet. Your iPhone can still be charged wirelessly when the lenses are removed. The newer cases are about half the price of the original metal model from 2015, and lighter weight as well.

Revolver

The case itself needs to be mentioned because the company could have phoned it in… pun intended. Instead the case provides decent protection, including at the bottom where many case manufacturers skimp. Additionally, Ztylus works with designers to create a plethora of custom case designs. Just remember when ordering that you need to get the specific model for your phone. 

Revolver

Pros

  • Numerous color and artwork choices
  • Magnetic lens attachment system
  • Accommodates iPhone X dual-lens system
  • Protective case
  • Optional vent clip

Cons

  • Need specific model for your phone

Final Verdict

If you want to have assorted lenses at the ready, the Revolver Lens Kit from Ztylus is a clever way to do so.
