Powermat Review and Giveaway...

ABCD Diaries
2010 Holiday Gift Guide:
Women & Men

We recently had the opportunity to review a cool new tech gadget...the Powermat charging system.

About Powermat:
"Powermat USA is a joint venture between Michigan-based HoMedics and Israel/New York-based PowerMat, Ltd. Together we’re commercializing wireless charging. We introduced over a dozen products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2009 that will be available in stores Fall 2009.
No more tangled mess of cords or searching for the right adaptor, simply place your enabled device on the Powermat to charge. Featuring a full range of wireless charging solutions for all your favorite devices, Powermat is compatible with iPhone, BlackBerry, MP3 players, cell phones, headsets, hand held electronic games, digital cameras, and GPS units. Whether you charge at home, at the office, on the road, or in all of these places, Powermat has a solution for you.
Powermat technology will revolutionize the way we charge.
Powermat. Charge Your Life.


With the Powermat system, you choose a mat and then choose the receivers to match the devices you want to charge. The Universal Powercube receiver with 8 tips allows you to charge hundreds of devices, and we also offer slim Powermat receivers that are custom designed to fit on your devices and you don’t need to remove them to use your device.
About the Home & Office Mat: Slim, sleek charging mat for home or office
Wirelessly charges up to 3 Powermat-enabled devices simultaneously (plus one USB power port). Works with all Powermat receivers.
Includes:
Home & Office Mat
Universal, international power supply with built-in cord management
PLEASE NOTE: All mats require an additional purchase of a Powermat Receiver"

What we thought: This is a really cool idea if you have a lot of devices that need charged fairly often. With the Home & Office mat you can charge up to three things at once and only use one outlet! Pretty smart:) If your family has iPhones and Blackberries, iPods and Nintendo DS systems, digital cameras and laptops or pretty much anything else that needs charging, you should check out the Powermat. There really is an adapter for nearly everything. The Powercube worked best for our family and it comes with a ton of adapters. I think we are pretty much covered on all of our charging needs:) The Powermat was easy to set up and easy to use. It would make a great gift for people who are often on-the-go and need there chargeables ready around the clock. ABCD Diaries gives Powermat an A!

Buy It: Find Powermat and accessories at Target, Amazon or check this page for the retailer nearest you...the list is pretty long so there is a good chance you have a retailer in your area!!

Win It: Powermat has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader a Home & Office mat with up to three receivers! To enter, leave a comment below qith the device you charge the most often.
