Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Powermat Home and Office mat: Introducing Powermat, the revolutionary new charging system that enables you to wirelessly charge up to three devices at the same time. Each Powermat Mat is stylishly designed to flawlessly integrate into its surroundings. The Home & Office Mat is designed to look great in any domestic or work environment and has been engineered to give you years of reliable performance. The Powermat Wireless Charging System provides a simple, fast and efficient way to keep all of your favourite personal electronic devices charged. There are many benefits to the Powermat charging system, the most obvious one being the ability to lose the spaghetti of wires that clutters your home. The Powermat is simple to use, just connect your Powermat receiver (sold separately) and then drop your product on to the mat and charge. Powermat is also energy saving, being able to charge up to three devices at one time with the use of only one plug. It’s not just energy efficient either, it charges just as fast as your standard adaptor. Enabling your devices with Powermat Receivers is what allows you to Drop and Charge them on any Powermat Mat to experience wireless charging. Every Powermat Receiver seamlessly recognizes and bonds to the device that it will enable to charge wirelessly. A magnetic attraction between every Receiver and each access point on every Mat assures that alignment is precise and the most efficient charging will occur. This is one of the keys to the Powermat system’s ability to charge your devices as fast or faster than the original power adaptor. The RFiD Handshake is the communication between the Mat and the Receiver which allows the mat to deliver an exact amount of power for the proper length of time so that the transfer of power is safe and efficient and no energy is ever wasted. A unique sound tells you that a solid connection has been made and that your device is now charging. A second, similar sound is heard when the device is removed. The level of these sounds can be changed to your preferred volume or they can be turned off. Each access point also has a corresponding light indicator that informs you that wireless charging is occurring. Again, the intensity of these lights can be changed or they can be turned off. When a device reaches full charge, power is shut off to that device to save energy. Other devices will continue to charge until they too are full. Once full power is achieved and the Auto Shut Off has occurred to save energy, the system will monitor the status of the battery in your device. If the battery is used, the system will again initiate charging and return the battery to a full charge. A USB connection is available on every Mat for legacy devices providing another source for power rather than finding an additional power outlet. Each product includes both the Powermat Home and Office mat and a Power supply. Please note that the Powermat system requires both a mat and a receiver. The appropriate receiver for your device must be purchased separately.

I bought this product to recharge my Google Nexus 4. Although Powermat claim they are Qi compatible, and the Nexus 4 is, the mat does not recharge the phone. Fortunately it was very (too?) cheap.

This will not work with a Nexus 4 or other Qi compatible devices. It didn't follow the standard wireless charging protocols, so future devices will also not charge on it. Waste of money even if reduced further.

I have one of these charger mats and also 2 single charging mats. First thing to be aware of is that you do need a receiver for your phone and as far as I can tell not all phones are covered and sometimes (as was the case with me) simply buying a back was not possible (hence the two single mats - but these are useful for work so I'm not too upset). So don't think you can just buy this mat and everything will be fine. You can put up to three items on the mat and the only issue is that it isn't always a simple thing to find the spot on the mat where the phone will charge. The good thing is that the mat lights up and makes a noise when you hit the right spot so at least you know your previous fumbles were ineffective and you've finally got there :) I won't go any further with that. - on the single mats there seems to be a magnet which pulls the phone to the right place but this is not present on this larger mat.

In all it does what it says on the tin and if you can find a compatible receiver then it really does do away with all the cables. One thing to note though (which has nothing directly to do with the mat), if all the backs are the same as the one for the Blackberry torch then there is a chance they won't fit into your case anymore as there is a charging connection between the back and the charging point on the phone which sticks out about 3 mm from the side of the phone!

When searching for Qi compatible chargers on Amazon, I came to this one. So I ordered two.
It is NOT working with the Nokia Lumia.
Now I rechecked and I cannot find anything about Qi in the specification for the product, so maybe Amazon is the one to blame and not the product.
I was forced to give stars in irder to review the product, so I gave it three. it would be unfair to give one star as I think it is Amazon's fault.

At first glance this technology seems like a great idea - you get rid of those unwanted cables. Then you realize - once you actually start to use the equipment that it is as cumbersome if not more cumbersome than using individual chargers for your devices. If you own an iPhone 3Gs the available powermat cases are NOT compatible with this latest iPhone version and so you need a Powerblock with it's own wires and adaptors. So think about it - you replace your nice, neat iPhone charger with a Powermat, it's power cable, a powerblock power adaptor and it's associated connector plug. It seems also that if you have an older iPhone and the specific charging case for it that it's actually not meant to be left on the phone after it's charged!! so one is supposed to remove the case after every charge?? does the original phone charger not appear even more convenient in the light of these issues?

This is compounded by the fact that Powermat's customer support is essentially non-existent, on trying to contact both UK and U.S. support regarding availability of device specific attachments and whether these attachments are actually designed to be left on the device when it is not being charged - there was no reply - at all!

In order for this technology to practical and useful the availability of the relevant device specific cases/battery doors should be made clear. In addition if the cases are not meant to be left on the devices the powerblock is as useful as the specific cases. It thus follows that your original charger is as effective and less cumbersome. In my opinion this technology promises more than it delivers and is not ready for the market. If Powermat wants you to part with your hard-earned cash they should finish developing the technology so that it delivers what it appears to promise and also customer support should SUPPORT existing CUSTOMERS with at least some information.

Bottom line - don't do it! wait for these guys to fix their products.

I bought one of these as they were so cheap to use with the receiver/case the same company sells for the iPhone 4. Problem was the one designed fro the iphone 4 came with a power 'mat' which was really a cradle that snugly fits the phone but means that you can only charge one device and only the iPhone 4 as the cradle was exactly iPhone 4 shap and size. At first I found the product useless and frustrating but then I remembered that the iPhone kit had included a sticker to help alignment on these "1st generation" mats. That did help but really shows that if you think you can just plonk down your phone on the mat and it will charge (not an unreasonable expectation) then you will be disappointed. It feels like there are only millimeteres of tolerance in the placement. It is a bit of a lottery - sometimes I get it to charge first time - sometimes it takes about 10 tries. So the technology works well for charging cradles - as sold in the newer products - but not for charging mats where controlling placement is too variable for the three charging zones on the mat. In fact on experimenting I found a 2nd placement (in addition to the one defined by the sticker) on the mat that also worked! It was on the right hand charging zone but with the phone angled slightly (aligned with about 2 and 8 o'clock on a clock face). Could not get it to work in the middle zone of the mat. I also bought an equally cheap Powercube and while I have not used that enough to comment, it does seem to be easy to place it on the mat. So the fiddly bit seems to be for the iPhone 4 case.
