Powermat Review and Father's Day Giveaway


{this contest has ended; congrats to #21 AnnetteD} My husband and I are about as opposite as two people can be, especially when it comes to technology. He's always up the newest trends, has the coolest new gadgets, and is constantly upgrading. As for me - well, I might as well be Amish. So when I had the chance to review the PowerMat, I checked with him first.

He instantly said YES! In case you haven't seen or used the PowerMat, take a look at the video below:


Awesome, huh? My husband thought so. He has all of these devices and it's so annoying to keep track of chargers, remembering to charge them, and of course the messiness of it all.

Here's what we thought of the Powermat:

It was super cool! It looked high tech, worked great, and was super convenient. In fact, I was jealous that my pay-as-you go phone had to be charged on it's own. I'd be so much more likely to actually charge my phone if I just had to "set it down." To be fair, the Powermat does come with a universal power cube that allows you to charge older phones such as mine, but my phone just happens to be a bit crustier than most.

For my husband's phones, it was awesome! You just set the phone down and pick it up later. It looks great and keeps everything looking organized and uncluttered (*sighs* - gotta love the unclutter!) The only downsides (read: husbandly complaints) were the fact that he still had to line up the iPod on the docking station (something that already annoyed him about the iPod) and the fact that his phones had to wear the powermat receiver cases. Not that they weren't sleek, black, and stylish. I think it was just a lack of personal control that bothered him, but it was something he could get used to.

All-in-all, we thought it was a great product and definitely very technologically up-to-date. In fact, I was surprised he didn't already own it! Well, now he does, and he uses it daily.

Want a chance to win one for the tech savvy person in your life?

One Suburban Jungle reader will win a Portable PowerMat (valued at $99)

This would be great for my husband because he works so hard and doesn't have time to think about charging his various items.

Wow! This is so cool! I am so absent minded that I keep forgetting to plug things in to re-charge. If all I had to do was lay it down on my dresser every night, which I already do, that would certainly solve that problem.
