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

By Adam Zeis on 11 Dec 2009 11:55 am EST

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.

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


my laptop's running out of battery from surfing CB all morning, but count me in!! hope i win one of these!

I could really use one of these. You see, every time I try to charge my Bold 9000 with the USB cable attached to the computer, The Cat decides it's time to play with "the string." Inevitably my Bold ends up on the floor, where it's susceptible to being thrashed by mutant Chihuahuas. I need this!

This Powermat charging dock looks amazing. Its soo cool how it charges your berry and other devices wirelessly. I'd be soo happy if I won this! Sign me up!

I've had razors and toothbrushes that use induction charging, so it makes sense to be able to use it to charge my phone etc. the same way using this product.

This bundle is great!!. It appears to be a well thought out product and would great addition to my toolkit for the office and travel. Hope I'm picked.

this would make for a great gift this holiday season cause i have many portable devices to charge and this would make life so much easier
