Powermat had an impressive stand at the Mobile World Congress, it was their first time at the show and they definitely had something worth showing off about. George McGhee, Director at Powermat took us through this revolutionary wireless charger.
The systems works with two parts, one being the mat – which is a wireless mat that transfers energy – and the other being the receiver – in the case of mobile devices it is directly embedded into the battery.
This system works on all mobile brands and has been launched in the US and Canadian markets in October 2009, followed by the UK and Italian markets. The company has sold more than 800,000 units and is now ready to enter the French, German, Spanish and Benelux markets aiming to cover the global market by 2011.
Watch this video interview to get a feel for how their technology works and how it could become one of the star products of 2010.
