They are literally repackaging a Qi Pad you can get on Amazon for $15-20

They're really not even repackaging it. They're just adding a few snips of 3m adhesive and a soft pad to go on top of it. For comparison purposes, the identical pad (down to the name and details printed on the front) was for sale recently at groupon for $12.99.

It's just a Qi clone. Nothing wrong with them except the huge markup, in this case. My two cents for OP - save your money and buy a similar product elsewhere.

I'm okay spending a little extra for the proper cutout. But I'm still looking for general feedback on the solution. Vs nomad.

I can answer that as I had those Qi pads before going to the Jeda/Nomad.

It works just fine and I had no complaints. It just doesn’t look nice enough in my opinion.

I personally try to order from RPM Tesla as little as possible. I wish them success and glad they cater to our market, but reading others experiences and my own inability to get hold of someone, I cringe every time I order knowing if there is an issue I will likely be on my own.

I try and frequent other more customer service oriented vendors like Abstract Ocean and others.

Here's an existing thread on the third party standalone wireless chargers.

And here's a thread on the Nomad charger.

The biggest difference is aesthetics. As stated, the standalone pucks work fine, functionally, in comparison. It's mostly a matter of how oem you want it to look versus the flexibility of the setup.

IMO you should get it from Amazon unless you don't mind waiting 2-3 weeks for it.
