    um, its not as exciting as it sounds. i am all about wireless charging (THE FUTURE DEPENDS ON IT[​IMG]). this does not fit the bill. the unit is 2 pieces. 1 basically attaches to the micro usb port and sends some sort of contacts to the back of the phone. and when you touch the 2 of them together the charg.....er...magic happens.

    Not quite. From what I understand, along with the powermat you get a special battery to replace the one you're using. That way all you have to do is put the phone on the mat. No plugging in any cords.

    Now, that specific version of the product isn't on their web page, so it's probably not yet released. Either way, I'm not entirely sold on it. My multimedia dock kinda makes this not as useful. I guess it would be good for people without cradles.

    That's called the "PowerPak" I believe and it's not due out until later this year if what I read a few months ago was accurate. It replaces the stock battery with one of theirs unlike the original "PowerMat" which replaces the stock battery door (which is only available for a few phones and the PSP I think). If they don't make a replacement battery door you have to use the universal adapter...

    For $100 I can muster up the strength and patients to push a plug into the phone connector.

    I have one but unless you have an Iphone or certain Blackberry phones you must use a small cube that has short cord and a micro usb tip at the end to charge things. This tip has adapters that can fit many other devices. Dropping the cube onto the powermat will let your device charge.

    So for android users it isn't worth $100. But it is nice for hiding wires, and it can charge 3 things at once.
