Powermat Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED

The Powermat is the PERFECT gift for someone who has everything....and also has a compatible device! ;)

According to their website, The Powermat Wireless Charging System provides a simple, fast and efficient way to keep all of your favorite personal electronic devices charged. Enabling your devices with Powermat Receivers allows you to Drop and Charge them on any Powermat Mat to experience wireless charging.

I was able to charge my iPhone 3 and my iPod.

To charge the iPhone it required a receiver case to be attached to the phone. The case is similar to one you would purchase to protect your phone though I didn't feel it would actually provide any shock resistance protection.





To make the Powermat Wireless Charging process as simple as possible you would leave your phone in the receiver case. I found the case for the iPhone 3 to be rather bulky. I believe that this is NOT the case with other phone models. I think their receiver cases are a little slimmer depending on your phone.

Charging the iPod was a much easier....just as easy as plugging it in with the charger that came with it. I actually used the dock for my iPod and my iPhone.


Both methods require you to place the receiver case of dock on a mat.


I did not notice that charging was any quicker than using the charger that comes with the phone. But one difference that I think is GREAT is that the Powermat has an auto shutoff feature. It can tell when your device it fully charges and then power to the device shuts off.

 This not only saves energy but also helps to prevent overcharging your battery which could shorten the life of it.

All in all I really don't have a need for the Powermat Wireless Charging System. I don't think it works any better or faster than the charger that comes with the device. But I do like the idea that the charge shuts off when fully charged.
