Welcome to the future, nice to have you back again! Powermat is a wireless charger, and that’s awesome. It works for smartphone and other portable devices, and works by applying a custom battery door receiver, then placing that device on the Powermat pad. If you’ll remember, this sort of thing has already existed in the original Palm Pre’s Touchstone charging dock, but isn’t quite to the greatness of mass application yet. You’ve just gotta get this one now, because, you know, how could anyone wait for such a lovely thang?
This is Powermat’s newest release, which is A LOT nicer looking than their previous releases, much slicker, much less like a giant slab of rock. Supported devices include: HTC EVO 4G, Motorola DROID X, HTC HD2, BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Curve 8500/9300, and iPhone 4. This Powermat kit for HTC EVO 4G costs $59.99 at Best Buy or at the Powermat webpage. They also sell larger pads for multiple devices and just the receiver (if you’ve already got the charging station) for $39.99.
