I have to raise a couple of points here about the powermat and its accessories:
1) The page description for the powermat leads you to believe that all you need is the powermat alone (apologies if this has since been changed)
2) The extra accessories that have to be purchased in order for the powermat to work
3) The phone backs that are needed in order for the mat to work correctly are only available for a limited number of devices. Leaving those people like myself with no option than to purchase another accessory-the powermat powercube with all its different plugs for the different charging sockets on most phones, with a lead from socket to powercube. which leads me to the question: in this respect is it a wireless mobile powering device? or an extention lead? A gimmick.
while the device is a novel idea, there are other wireless charging items out there that do not require the extra (unknown) expense of having to buy other accessories for the product to work, at a considerably cheaper price.
5 stars for innovation and style
1 star for lack of thought for users of less popular phones
