Out with the cords!
We have a big bowl that is filled with various chargers and electronic devices. It is always a jumbled mess of cords and an altogether eye sore in my kitchen. Recently my youngest decided to take all of the cords and play with them in a giant cinnamon roll. There is still icing in all the nooks and crannies. With the Powermat you can let go of all the cords and charge your devices in one sleek location. This unique mat will charge up to 3 devices at once. All you need is the powermat and then the adapter for each of your devices. Your powermat will also come packaged with a powercube that includes 8 different tips. Confused? Adapters are really easy to use - the blackberry adapter is actually just a replacement battery door. Just swap out the battery doors and then anytime you sit it on the powermat it will automatically start charging. The nintendo DS lite and DSi adapter just fits right over the back of your nintendo. All of the adapters are easy to use and completely cord free. You only need one per device and you won't have to worry about misplacing your charger because it is now attached to your device. I've had 2 different cell phones stop working because the charger wouldn't connect properly - with the adapters that is no longer a problem. The powercube is just like the adapters in that once you sit it on the powermat it automatically starts charging. The difference is the tiny wrap around cord that you can change out the tips on to charge your various devices. You can even store the tips that you use in the included storage case. I love only needing one plug to charge three devices. I promise this advanced gadget actually works - it even makes a sound that lets you know your device is charging. I love the sleek design and the complete lack of cords all over the place. I really love that I don't have to remember to pack 12 different chargers every time we go out of town. Powermats also come available in a portable version which makes traveling so easy. The powermat folds compactly into an included travel case that has room to store the power cord as well. I love the idea of having two powermats - the Home & Office Mat downstairs and the Portable Mat upstairs. That way I am no longer having to move cords about the house - I have one easy location on each floor to charge my devices. When we go out of town I can just grab the portable mat and I am good to go. This is such a cool device and it's so easy to use too!!
