Quick Giveaway: Win a Powermat Portable Mat for Christmas

pmm-pt100-hero_1.jpgWe’re giving away a Powermat Portable Mat to one lucky GBM reader today.

You’ve probably seen Power Mat displays at your favorite retailers this holiday season as the company seems to be marketing its wireless charging stations pretty heavily these days.

Powermat makes custom battery doors and cases for several Blackerry models so, the Nintendo DS, iPod Touch and iPhone. These custom backs an cases allow the devices to be charged by simply placing the device on the mat. The idea is to reduce clutter when charging multiple devices.

The Portable Power Mat comes with a Powercube and eight tips that will charge a wide range of devices, including Bluetooth headsets, Kindles and iPods. The mat retails for $99.99 and the custom backs range from $29.99 to $39.99. We have a couple of backs that we may throw in if the winner happens to have a compatible device.

All you need to do to enter to win is tell us which gadgets you’d use with the Power Mat if you won it. We’ll pick a random entry entry from the comments section below at 3PM PST today. We’ll send it out today and it might jut arrive on your doorstep in time for Christmas. This contest is only open to US residents (sorry to all our readers from other countries).

Thanks to the folks at Powermat for donating the prize for our readers. If you want a second chance at winning, head over to Notebooks.com and enter to win another Powermat Portable Mat.

Update: Thanks to everyone that commented. Congrats to Perry for winning!

    These things look pretty nifty at the local BestBuy, I’ve got a gaggle of devices and a rats nest of chargers plugged into one of those generic faux leather “charging stations” currently. My fiance’s iphone, my Touch Pro, my old school DS, her DS lite, my PSP, and some random bluetooth devices just to name a few.

    Very cool!

    I’d definitely use it with my Kindle 2, iPod Touch, and Blackberry Curve 8900. I’d probably also hope to use it with my kids’ Nintendo DS and DSi, my old Sprint Touch phone, my PSP (original model), and Invisio B3 Bluetooth headset. If my wife is nice to me, I’ll let her charge her Palm Pre, although she already has that cool charging “puck” made specifically for it.

  44. Perry Harris

    12/23/2009 at 4:30 pm

    I’d use it to keep the kids Nintendo DS and DS Light power cords off the living room floor. That and avoid the sound of anguish that comes from not charging them overnight. Much easier if it is just put it in one location.

    12/23/2009 at 4:36 pm

    I would, with gratitude, use the powermat for my Iphone and my headset.

    12/23/2009 at 4:49 pm

    When I travel I have to take a separate bag just for all of the power units and cords to charge the devices I need to keep with me. At home I’m always untangling charging cables. This would really help my Palm, Pre, Motorola and Sony-Ericsson phones, PSP, DS, DS Lite and iPod Video Gen5.
