PowerMat Allows Wireless Charging of All Your Gadgets

IMG_1633 One of the more crowded and active booths at CES Unveiling was the PowerMat wireless recharging station. The concept has been around for a while now, but this was my first experience with this technology. The process is quite simple: place your device of choice in the various charging adapters (what PowerMat calls “receivers”) and place the receiver with the device onto the PowerMat. The advantage of this setup is to minimize the amount of cords running around your workspace as well as minimizing the bulkiness of traditional chargers for the mobile professionals. The PowerMats come in different sizes and can charge a variety of things, ranging from iPhones and iPods to Blackberries, Motorola Razrs, and even regular AA batteries.
