Holiday Gift Guide- Powermat – Frugal Novice

Holiday Gift Guide- Powermat

The Skinny: 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 to experience wireless charging.

A magnetic attraction between every Receiver and each access point on every Mat assures that alignment is precise and the most efficient charging will occur.

Communication between the Mat and the Receiver allows the mat to deliver an exact amount of power for the proper length of time so that the transfer of power is safe and efficient and no energy is ever wasted.

Our Opinion: We love the Powermat system. For people like us who have multiple devices to charge, it makes it really simple (and less cluttered). I especially love that the Powermat monitors the charge of each device, providing just the amount of power it needs. This reduces energy waste and also strengthens the battery life of devices.

The receiver cases seem sturdy – the iPhone 3G case protected the phone well and was sleek looking, so I didn’t mind carrying that around with me. I keep the Powermat on my nightstand, and it is really easy to just set the phone down at night without even thinking about it.

At the time we received our Powermat, they did not have a case for the iPhone 4 (they do now) but I could still charge Brian’s phone by using the universal Power Cube receiver – it came with seven tips that charge a wide variety of devices.

The Powermat is reasonably priced, in my opinion. It is not an inexpensive device, but the convenience and features it provides make it worth the money.

Buy it For: Friends or family with lots of gadgets, or someone who’s on the go a lot.
