When I first saw the Powermat devices on the shelves in Target and Best Buy, I had my doubts about it. It seemed to me to be a new attempt on an old trick. As I watched this product sell out over the holidays, I thought it nothing more than a fad. However, my mind was changed when I had the chance to talk to the people at Powermat at CES this year.
I saw the level of commitment to the technology and a desire to continue to evolve their offerings. This led me to test the Powermat with an open mind. I took a look at what Powermat was claiming and what their devices actually bring to the table. What I found is that it really does do what Powermat claims; since receiving the Portable Mat and receiver case I have replaced the normal charger for not only my wife's iPhone 3G S, but also use the Powercube to charge my kid's iPhones (they share that connector) while leaving a single USB cable connected to the Portable Mat so that all four phones can be charging at the same time without the need to have them spread out over the house.
But, beside the return of multiple power outlets in my house; I got something else. For the first time since we all got our iPhones, I have a clear counter; this is worth more than I can say. Gone is the "bucket" full of USB cables and power packs and in return I now have an open space with only the Portable Mat in its place.
Over all we can highly recommend the Powermat Portable Mat and Receiver case for iPhones. It is an excellent product despite the price ($100 for the mat and $30 for the receiver case) and one that actually provides what its marketing claims; something that is rare in this day and age.
