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.

I would love to win one of these... It would be great next to my desk so I could llayit on the mate and it would be charging.

Pass it on...

With 3 BlackBerries and an iPod Touch, 2 Nintendo DS and a PSP in the house, this would make life easier for me and my children :)

I've been wanting this since it came out... Just wish it had the battery back for the Storm... But they should get one soon. :)

ADD ME! :)

I saw this at Wal-Mart the other week, looks really cool, Good luck to everyone who enters, I think it'll be a great addition to any electronic present for the holidays!

hello, i would like to win cause it would be like so cool to win, an like i could show it to all my friends. I would like call them up an be like guess who this, an they will be like hey whats up dude an I will say guess who this is, Powermat!!

I'd love one of these for my 8330 . . . I have two phones and this would be great to have to charge both of them.

ok this is freaky as I was only doing my homework on these devices last weekend looking for a way to cleanup my desk.

so here is me begging, please please please please please please please :)

run out of battery. If I can simply drop my phone on the pad to charge, surely I'd remember! I'd love to win this!

i was actually looking at these at best buy the other day as a Christmas present for my brother. Since it is the season of giving I guess I wouldn't be the one winning it would be my brother.

I can not wait to receive one of these for Christmas! It is on my list. And if I win the contest, I'll be better off.

If I won, Santa could use it to charge his Blackberry while eating cookies at my house. So you see, I just gotta win it...

I could win this Mat that would be perfect to encompass all sides of me:: my tech side, organized side and. My crAckberry side. I think this is a definite pick-me-up-list. Now if this baby could make me chocolate I'd be all set. Lmao.

So,

This is pretty cool. If I get this correctly, I won't have to carry my BB charger anymore when I travel. And I won't have to plug in my BB charger into an outlet.

Instead, I carry the power mat and power adapter for it instead.

Awesome! and if I don't have one of the compatible battery door replacement BB's I just have to carry the Mini USB powermat adapter.

I want one so I can ditch my AC charger for my Bold. Woohoo!

Holy crap!! I was coincidentally looking online to buy one of these earlier today. I'm glad i checked my favorite website to find out there is a contest!!!

i think this has some great potential for future devices that are powermat ready.

if my camera, phone and ipod could just sit somewhere on my desk and be charged, that would be pretty cool

One of these would make my life so much easier! Constantly travelling around gigging. Being able to dump my Bold onto a mat and letting it do its thing would be amazing!!!

how many times have I fallen asleep with my Berry and forget to plug it in to charge it? many times. if I had the PowerMat then I wouldn't have to worry so much anymore haha.

but i'll give it a go. please let me enter this contest. i might just win. thanks. and happy holidays to you all.

I have been looking for this device..been sold out in my area. I would love to use it for my ipod and BB8330

Oh, I could so use this at work. I have so many wires all over the place for multiple devices. This would be great.

I need this power mat!!! I have 2 cell phones, a PSP and a DS!! Im pretty sure one of my devices is plotting to strangle me in the night!! thanks for your time!!

kind of just get a little heart broken as I walk away from it. I don't even go and look anymore!

this is the reason i bought a blackberry over anything else is becuase i would be able to minimize the amount of devices that i would have to carry and charge

I just saw that they sell and adapter for the Tour!!! I'm so eager to try this and I have never won anything through Crackberry. Hopefully I'll get picked.

i have a feeling this mat will electrically mess up other devices near it. i would have to see it work other than you tube to believe it before i spend a hundred bucks on it.

would like to have it if its a gift or free..

wouldn buy it tho.. prefer charging pod. lolz.

thanks hope can win some..

Too bad it doesn't come with receivers for the Tour or 9700. The PowerCube would be neat to have and is something me and my fiancee would utilize for other devices.
