Powermat wireless device chargers finally available

You've been hearing about these wireless chargers for a while now, and now they're finally available for you, the consumer, to purchase.


Powermat has been touting its wireless chargers for a while now-- ever since CES 2009 , quite frankly--but now they're finally available for you, the consumer, to purchase.


The Powermat is a one-pad, one-plug system (pictured above right) that charges all your gadgets in one place without wires. Your gadget gets a special "Powermat Receiver" sleeve so that it can use magnetic induction charging to power your devices. (Aren't familiar with magnetic induction? If you've got an Oral-B rechargeable toothbrush, or a Palm Touchstone charger for your Pre, it's the same thing.)
