Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show, the
Powermat 2X is the first at-retail product to usher in Powermat’s
extensive new line of mats and chargers that will expand both the number
of devices consumers can wirelessly charge as well as the multiple
ways they can charge them. The two-position charging
mat allows users to wirelessly charge up to two devices simultaneously
from one power source, losing both the tangled mess of cords and the
hassle of constantly plugging and unplugging. With its small footprint
the Powermat 2X is also ideal for multiple charging locations such as
bedside or desk side.
"We are pleased to be working with Sprint to offer the
consumer the freedom and convenience of Powermat as well as to launch
the Powermat 2X," said Ron Ferber, President of Powermat. "Not only does
Powermat provide the freedom to charge a Smartphone without the
constant plugging and unplugging, but they can also charge the rest of
their handheld gear without the hassle and tangle of cords."
With a price-point of $79.99, the Powermat 2X comes complete
with the multi-faceted Powercube Universal Receiver and eight Powercube
tips. The Powercube works with hundreds of devices including eBooks,
Bluetooth headsets, handheld games, music players and phones.
In addition to the brand new Powermat 2X, Sprint stores will
also carry Powermat receivers for BlackBerry® Curve(TM) 8330, BlackBerry
Curve 8350i and BlackBerry Tour 9630. The Powermat-enabled
BlackBerry covers, retailing for $29.99 each, allow consumers to simply
replace the existing cover on their BlackBerry with a Powermat-enabled
cover and then simply drop and charge at their convenience.
