PowerMat Wirelessly Charges Almost Any Device - Enter to Win a PowerMat Combo!

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.

bkrasso

I would love to win one of these. Awesome.

LoSt180

I'll take one, but can I get receivers for a Storm2 and Tour instead? kthxbye

jkpitcher

You have to change the battery door which makes the phone thicker. He said he would only use that door for charging. Seems inserting a cable would be just as easy. Plus if they don't have an adapter then you have the plug in a cable. Which if I am not mistaken is the whole point of the powermat in the first place. What a waste of technology. Pointless. Please do not let me win this one.

iduckles

Wow! This would be awesome! I would really like this.

xobrian

Not really sure how this gives much of a benefit as you must have either a special battery door or you need to use connectors.

With the connectors you have to plug the phone in anyway... might as well just use your charger.

eb81784

This seems soo convenient, especially because i'm going all the way to Taiwan in a week. The travel case would be perfect! PLEASE give me one! :D

Aiya is a chinese word

firegrove

I would love this...it's a great idea.

Lanthom

I saw this advertised on TV the other day and decided this was a must have for me. With the PSP, DS, DSi, 2 blackberries, cell phone and other electronics my night stand looks like someone spilled a bowl of spaghetti all over it. This would get rid of at least 3 of those cords hanging around.

Would be great especially with a newborn running around!

jkblevins

Still would like to have for my curve, tho, and other devices!

nkwhite

Pick me, I'm the one!!!

Adontain

I love the powermat. great piece of equipment and would make a great gift too.

R1cE

Cooome oooon santa!!

goosew

So this is basically useless since you need to carry the powermat AND the pod around to charge the 9550. Easier to just carry the travel charger.
(yes, i know that this will likely make me NOT win the prize)

spazn4u

Sweet device...would LOOOOOVE it

nvinceble

pretty neat...but i agree with the review...wouldn't mind trying it though.

Looks like it works for the Wii controlers as well. I could use that.
