    I wouldn't get this. Now, if I could slap this thing on the wall, my phone would stick there magnetically and charge in 30 minutes and stop charging when full... we got a winner!

    I can see the conversation now...

    Person 1 - "Oh wow! A charging mat.."

    Person 2 - "Yeah, kinda cool"

    Person 1 - "Neat, you just set stuff on it and it charges or powers up?"

    Person 2 - "Yeah. It works wonders. Ya know, I'm just too lazy to plug the device in"


    Enough said... GHEY.

    not possible , i think its just a prank .. wireless charging is very hard as it will cause all the ions in the atmosphere to get 'active' and fly around.
    This technology has been around for a while. And yes, it is real.

    Get an automatic watch like Seiko, Citizen, Timex, Rolex etc. They all have automatics. All you do os wear them and they stay wound from movement, now if the BlackBerry could do that.

    I'll second the electric toothbrush; old news on this charging system.

    Also a while back some guy did this in his lab to run low voltage items wirelessly for power. Old news.

    There is something like this for Wii remotes. You plug it into the wall and set the remotes down.

    I really don't see the benefit versus a desktop charging pod. I don't want to have to wrap my device in a case just to have to charge it.

    Fck that wireless charger scam. That accessory is bull****. It should be marketed as a charging pod not a wireless charger. Very misleading

    Personally i think there should be inductive charging for everything. It would make alot of things easier. Instead of having different cords for all your electronics when you get home just throw everything on the mat and they all charge..

    Easy as pie.

    Well if they did a true wireless anywhere charging (would be cool) but if i'm not mistaken it'd very easily fry everything in between phone and power source lol. a phone with kinetic charging now that would be cool

    That's just epic fail there. Who wants the added bulk of that case on your phone?

    This looks ridiculous. There is a wire to the pad. Its basically a hip new charging cradle. FAIL.

    I guess it just depends what a person's definition of "wireless" is. I love the word ridiculous too.

    Oh, the powermat! I saw this like 6-7 months ago on a "This year in Tech" thing on my xbox 360! They had one example with a wall made of this stuff (with drywall overtop) and you just set lamps on it and then slide them around until you like where they are. Or another example was a counter with a blender, a laptop, a light, and a phone charging off it all at once. Cool stuff.
