The Powermat allows you to charge your devices "wirelessly." Now when I first heard this claim I thought "Wow, how in the world does that work?" Well, after trying the Powermat in my own home I discovered that not all items can charge wirelessly (or at least not in the way I initially thought). Some items, like my cell phone and ipod require a dock or adapter in order to use the mat. I plug the adapter into my Samsung phone, lay the adapter on the mat, and my phone automatically begins charging. They did send me a case you can attach to an iphone that allows you to just drop your item on the mat and charge it. There are tones of receiver cases (smart phones, Nintendo DS, etc.) that allow you to simply drop them on the pad and charge away without requiring any sort of additional adapter.

Although not completely wire-free. It does significantly reduce the number of cords I use. The result is a much neater work environment. I can also charge up to four devices (three pad stations and one usb port) while only using one outlet. This means I can charge two cell phones (mine and the husb's), my ipod, and my nook all at the same time, while only using one outlet.

To charge my iPod nano, I only had to place it in the iPod dock that was placed on the mat. The dock works for both iPods and iPhones. It retails for $39.99. It is nice and compact and easy to use. I think this is fantastic. I can seldom remember where I put the USB cord I need to charge my iPod.

The pad makes a sound, vibrates, and a light comes on to ensure the user that the item is correctly lined up to the charging station and is charging.

I also liked that the Powermat has an auto shut off. It can detect when your device's battery is full and automatically stops charging so as not to overcharge your device (which can wear down the battery life).

The Powermat Portable Mat ($99) that I tried came with a neat magnetic travel case and a large assortment of adapter tips. The Powermat can be used for Nintendo DS, ipods, sony products, a wide variety of cell phones and smart phones, and more. Their website offers a complete list of compatible products.

All in all, I was impressed by the Powermat. It really is a neat space-saving gadget. The Portable Mat folds away compactly when it is not in use. Perfect for cluttered desks and counters.

One luck reader will win a Home and Office Powermat ($99) and three adapters!! You will love it!

I would only need one additional Powercube Receiver so that we could do another iPhone and an iPod (or the actual tips for an iPhone and iPod, either way would work.)
