Handy but a little fiddly to find the sweet spot
on 9 January 2013
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!
