Hands on Review of the Powermat. Verdict: Hands off my Powermat!

by Mark R

pm1We covered that Powermat at CES last January, and I finally got a chance to try it out. It is a neat product, but there is a few things you should know about it.

I’m sure this is obvious, but the user has to buy Powermat adapters for whatever device that you have. That’s for the true wireless charging for your iPhone or BlackBerry or whatnot.

The Powermat comes with Powermat Powercube that has seven adapters including 2 DS Lites, one micro USB, one Sony, one Samsung, one LG, and one Apple for iPods. It also has a place for tip storage, a box that is about the same size of the Powercube. In all honesty, I wish they would have included another Powercube, as there already is a holder for the tips that is made of stiff paper.

The neatest thing about the Powermat is when you put the Powermat adapter on the Powermat itself, you literally hear a mechanical whirring sound. The Powermat has three magnetic places for mobile devices, and a light that comes on when it is locked in place and charging.

The Powermat can be purchased for about $99.99. Adapters for mobile devices as well as other Powercubes can be purchased for about $29.99. The wireless Powermat Receiver Dock for the iPod and iPhone is about $39.99.

[…] When I say “gets near”, I mean that the car probably has to park directly over this parking block. Only a distance of two inches is allowed, which is dangerously close when dealing with under-the-car devices like this. At least it is better than the in-touch charging devices like the Powermat.
