The PowerMat sets out to solve your charging dilemas. If you have multiple devices and chargers running rampant, you can hook up the PowerMat and "cut the cord". The wireless charging solution charges up to 3 devices at a time, all without the need for conventional wired chargers. You simply place down the PowerMat, plug it in (ironic right?), choose your weapon (aka wireless receiver or "PowerCube") and charge away. The PowerMat feature and array of wireless receivers (battery doors) for various devices that you simply snap on and you're done. Place the device on the PowerMat and it charges. Included is a PowerCube with multiple adapters for devices such as iPods, Nintendo DS and mirco USB. The PowerMat Portable Mat folds up into a neat travel case allowing you to take it anywhere, while the cleaner Home and Office Mat looks a bit nicer but isn't built for portability.

After playing around with the PowerMat for a few weeks, I honestly think it is more of a novelty for BlackBerry users than anything. Using a BlackBerry Charging Pod (at 1/4 of the cost) is a much easier solution with no additional accessories involved. The PowerMat requires either the PowerCube and adapter (which ultimately is the same as just plugging in your device) or a wireless receiver that will run you another $30 on top of the PowerMat price. That said, it is pretty cool. :)

Contest: We have one PowerMat Portable Mat bundle to give away. The bundle includes the portable mat, wireless receivers for the Bold 9000, Curve 8900 and Curve 83xx and the PowerCube with adapters. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. This contest will run through Sunday December 20th. Please only leave one comment - multiple entries won't count.

panalyn

MRCLrider

I will not argue that it is a cool piece of electronics, I would much rather have my charging pod for my Bold 9700, way less fuss. Now if I were to win this somehow I know a friend that would love to have it.

sullyz

Whats the point of the PowerCube? After all the connections, you might as well just plug it in with the standard plug... Cool technology, but needs to be refined.

hxx2002

I am very excited about this.

bensberry

looks useful :) count me in

cookie1069

That would be perfect for my house with 3 cell phones. All 3 phones had low battery one day: one in the charging pod (only one pod in the house), one plugged into the computer, and the other one plugged in another room(missed a few important phone calls). This would be great have.

Smittyn804

Oh mah Damn! I want one of these so bad. Thought the duracell "mygrid" seems to be just as nice and a bit cheaper. Both products have ups and downs but as for asthetics the Power Mat gets my vote!

Problem is I spend money on a Powermat then I'll get he boot! See? Lose-lose situation for me! Please support my plight and let m win one!:-)
