Powermat Wireless Charging System for the iPhone Review

Rating: 8/10

Best Price: £39.99 at the Carphone Warehouse

What it’s up against:

PowerSurface Wireless Charger £39.95
WildCharge Universal Wireless Charger £49.97
Good price for a case and charging dock together
Limited number of compatible products
One less wire on your desk

What it is:

The Powermat 1X wirelessly charges your iPod, iPhone, or Blackberry by placing the device with a Powermat receiver onto the mat.

First Impressions

The Powermat is easy to use. Simply take it out of the box, and plug it in. Then you take the receiver and attach it to your device. Then place the receiver on the mat.
When you put the receiver on the charging spot, there is a magnetic pull to the right position, a light turns on and a sound effect plays letting you know it’s charging. The dock is small and compact with a groove in which the case sits. Once your iPhone is fully charged the Powermat then turns itself off so not to damage the battery.
The case has a nice matt finish on tough black plastic, it is well designed with a small outc

rop on the back where the receiver is but it still easily fits in the front pocket of your jeans.

What’s in the box?

Receiver Case for iPhone 3G/3GS
Powermat 1XA Charging Mat
Micro USB to USB data cable
Universal, international power supply with built-in cord management
A clever piece of tech, perfect for your desk at work so you don’t have to carry your charger with you. Also any way to cut down on clutter on the desk is a plus in my book. A good quality product at a good price for what you are getting.
