Happy Birthday To Us Event - Powermat Wireless Charging Device {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}


I don't know about your family, but between my husband and myself we've got multiple electronic devices that need to be charged daily and only a limited number of electrical outlets. Devices like cell phones, iPods and other electronics just seem to take up space as well as make my counter-top look like a tangled mess of black cords.  I hate cords and messes!  Luckily, there is a solution to this problem that we all seem to suffer as we move further and further into the technological age.  The solution is called Powermat!  It's a charging mat that significantly reduces the amount of cords and plugs while still charging up to 4 electronic devices all at the same time. 

You may be asking yourself, "How could this work?"  Well, it's pretty cool in that all you have to do is hook up your device to the Universal Powercube or encase your device in the appropriate case and set either the Powercube or the case on the mat.  It's really that simple.  You'll know it's charging because it will make a noise indicating that the power is on.  From there, you just let the Powermat do it's thing.  The beauty of the Powermat is that it won't overcharge and it saves energy by automatically shutting off the energy once the charge is completed.  The Powermat will then monitor the charge of the battery until it is disconnected from the device.  Simple as that!  Isn't that cool?  I think the "techie" member of your family is going to get quite a kick out of this!  What a great gift to give your husband or father or even your sister who is the technological genius of the group!  It's certainly a practical gift for just about everyone (well, except maybe your grandma who still has a rotary telephone).

What Did I Think?

You could probably tell from above that I am really enjoying our Powermat!  I was so excited when we received it that we opened it right away and started playing!  It's very sleek and modern but not nearly as large as I thought it would be.  One of the things I love most about the Powermat is that it doesn't overcharge the electronic items.  As I get older and closer to having children of my own, I realize that we need to sustain this planet and keep the resources around so that our children and grandchildren will have the resources that we do to survive.  Included in those resources is electricity.  I feel that using the Powermat is a small contribution that I can make to the future generations. {Ok, getting down off my soapbox now}

There really is only one suggestion that I have for Powermat and that would be to incorporate a portable charging device that you could take with you for use on the go.  I think that would be a terrific addition to the already large number of devices that they offer consumers.

Where can you buy one?

The most obvious place to purchase a Powermat would be on their website where they offer different sizes of Powermats as well as all of the extras that are available.  I've also been seeing Powermats cropping up in stores such as Best Buy, Target, Staples and more!

You can win one!

Powermat has generously offered one of my readers a Home & Office Powermat along with up to 3 receivers!  This retails for up to $220!
