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.

Well, we're still a long way from "true" wireless charging, but we're one step closer...

All we need now is to extend the range and we'll have the perfect charging solution!

I think this is the best multi charging device out. With the power cube you can pretty much charge any device without buying the battery doors.

williamsmhall

Its frigging charging right now. How does it do that. Now get back to ffrigging work!! I need this!!!

POWER CRACK MAT BERRY

baldydave

Yay wireless charging!

amellerbe

I would love to have one.

trektagger

a great xmas present for me.

black1972

want in on it plzzzzzzzzzz

webchetan

To be frank whats the purpose? I see only one benefit is to it will charge 3 devices at one time! Thats it! Whats the use you are plugging the Mat to the power source and then using the Power mat adapter to be placed on the power mat and then the mini USB wire goes into the Blackberry for charging! Why all the circling around....it takes me less then 2 seconds to put my BlackBerry on the charging stand...which is cheap and comes for less then $20...

I feel its all hyped....no use for me for sure....

kaptiv8her

for a win. Please please pretty please

mcelio

Even if I win, I'd probably still cuddle up with my berry every night.

MooPenguin32

This would be great to win!

twodumbdogs

I'll gladly take one thanks.

kalbracht

Come on baby baby Come on baby baby Come on!!!! Hoping I win

niqueo625

Besides the fact that you can charge multiple devices at one time, in my case the storm 1 (when made applicable) and ipod touch, what good is this charger? I thought this would charge wirelessly, meaning you could walk, charge, and talk at once. If I win one, then I'd use it. But I don't think I'd buy one on my own.

sweeetipie

i could so use this with all the devices that I have to charge at once.

senecala

Send me a powermat please

danio

gonna need this to charge my girl friend and my blackberry together! That's all i want to xmas!

Please please please look at me as a choice and if ur interested in our site check out khsprairienews.com

baby_arm

Go wireless charging! May be it's a novelty now, but if it catches on and improves, I'm down for it!

Really neat alternative to charging... I would definately use it. Soon enough that replacement door won't even be noticable.
