Powermat review and {GIVEAWAY!!}

I had the opportunity to review the Powermat and am so excited to tell you guys about it. This just might be the best product I have ever been able to review. This is one of those products that everyone needs to have in their house. A Powermat is a device made to charge multiple electronic devices at one time. Here is a brief explanation (from the Powermat 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."

The mat itself is about 1/2 thick and extremely light so it is easy to move around to whatever spot you want to charge your devices at. The way it works is Powermat sends you a new back for whatever device you want to charge on the Powermat and you remove your old back and snap the new one on. I have a blackberry and it was simple to attach the new back.
Once the back is on, all you have to do is set it on the Powermat and your phone will start charging. Easy as pie.
Powermat offers an array of different adapters so you can charge almost any small device without having to put special Powermat back on it.
Powermat also makes a fold up mat that comes with it's own case so you have an easy way to charge up while traveling.
I absolutely LOVE the Powermat! I honestly think it is worth every penny. It has been so nice at night to just drop my phone on the mat beside the bed before I go to sleep instead of search for the cord, plug it in and then find a place to set my phone. This would make an awesome gift for a tech savvy friend or relative, or for yourself!
Right now Powermat is the ultimate way to charge up your smaller electronics, but according to the NY Times, there are big plans for the future:

“Over time, Powermat hopes to get its technology implanted into things like kitchen counters and even walls: a household could power a flat-panel TV straight from the wall without any cables.”

Can you imagine? How awesome would it be to have your TV charging without having to find a plug in for it?

  24. The Powermat Home & Office Mat would be perfect for our house. I love that it comes with the Powercube Receiver. My hubby would most like to have the Power Adapter that's included since he travels a lot.
