Wireless Powermat chargers go on sale

Powermat has released its lineup of wireless chargers on Wednesday. The system utilizes an ultra-thin mat along with a receiver that attaches to each portable device a user charges. Powermat now also offers a custom Powercube receiver that can attach to iPhones, iPods, Nintendo game consoles and BlackBerry handsets for wireless recharging.

Powermat uses magnetic induction along with its own proprietary technology for its wireless chargers, which allows for up to three devices to be charged from a single power source. The chargers have a built-in termination feature that will stop charging once the devices are fully charged.

Powermat is now offering the Powermat Portable for travel use, the Home & Office mat and the receivers for the aforementioned personal electronics. The universal Powercube receiver ships with every mat and has eight unique tips, including mini and microUSB, which should be compatible with most popular handheld devices.

The Powermat devices are available now, priced at $100 for the mats and between $30 and $40 for the receivers.
