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.

petervips

Neat!! This would make my life a whole lot easier!!

touringtheworld

your review might have been the most helpful to me. Thank you for opening my eyes about this wonderful product. YES!

touringtheworld

whats the point of a wireless charging station when so many devices still require the use of the charging adapter? its a good use of technology, great innovation, but it can be made better. it would be nice to have a separate charging sleeve for replacement batteries so you would be able to switch batteries quickly and always have one charging.

SirThale

I would love to try a powermat, but I'm not willing to pay the retail price in the store!

dakroe

Just saw this and it would be great for a multiple BB family!

bumper73

This really looks like a nice gadget to have...

berikutnya

This is what I would call "The Charging".
Wireless charge is already cool enough.
Can charge 3 devices at the same time? Marvelous!

Thanks for Crackberry and Powermat.

donaldpsmith

He has a Bold and could use this.

dupa87

It may be a novelty if you only have a Blackberry to use, but with the multiple items I own, this would be a God-Send for me!

Lexington81

Good Morning,

After hearing about this product a few months ago, I started to do some reading on it. Although its not as crucial as sliced bread, it does seem like a great accessory for anyone that loves tech gadgets and cool accessories for their Blackberry.

I think having this, would def make charging and power docking a little more conveintient.

Thanks,

Alex Seva

marksubishi

post.

this bundle is quite expensive.. =S

I'd be happy to win it but I'm definitely not shelling out over 100 dollars for what seems to only be a novelty.

spasmonaut

What a novel idea...would be insane if they partnered with companies to start building this functionality into their products for use with this solution.

GTLee

I would love to get this as my Christmas gift CB...

kidd1128

i wanna win this , pick me please :)

dstropich_420
