I've been looking at Powermats for a while, but have always been put off by needing a seperate receiver for each product I want to charge (costing between £30-£50 each!)

But now, with this deal, you get a universal reciever that works with most of the major brand names! & You can even charge 3 items at the same time - Bargain!

blurb:
-------
With the Powermat system, you choose a mat and then choose the receivers to match the devices you want to charge. The Universal Powercube receiver with 8 tips allows you to charge hundreds of devices, and we also offer slim Powermat receivers that are custom designed to fit on your devices and you don't need to remove them to use your device

Powermat Wireless Charging Mats provide a simple, fast and efficient way to keep all your favourite personal electronic devices charged
Just place your device with a Powermat enabled Receiver on the Mat to start charging wirelessly
Wirelessly charge up to 3 devices simultaneously
Powercube Universal Receiver also allows you to charge hundreds of devices wirelessly
The Powercube's Interchangeable tips allow you to wirelessly charge hundreds of mobile devices using just one receiver, and works with all Powermat Mats
Mini & Micro USB, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Nintendo DS lite/DSi and Sony PSP tips all included
Box contains Powermat, Powermat Adapter, Owners Manual, plus Powercube and iPod Touch Receiver

Watched some reviews. It does work but not sure if there is any big gain compared to standard charger.

no big gains are needed with technology :)
looks like you can get rid of a few adapter plugs here.

Have to agree really, it sure is neat, but not £40 neat. When I can power my computer without wires, then I'll get interested.

So we all agree then?
Price 10/10
Usability 5/10

I thought this wa a decent deal - less wires to worry about.

OP you still need a seperate receiver at £30-50 each for each device unless you plan on swopping tips everytime something needs charging
The PowerCube does actually allow you to charge 3 things at the same time & I think (but not sure) that the PowerMat is only big enough for 3-4 devices any way. :)

So you have to plug each item into the powercube and then place that on the mat LOLhow dumb, that defeats the object of having the pad in the first place X) :Dupdatethe powercube charges one item and you have to mess about selecting the right tiphttp://www.powermat.com/us/accessories/universal-powercube-receiver-8-tips.htmlso if you want to charge 2 items at the same time you'll need another receiver at £30-50this so called deal gets worst by the min

Jeez, lighten up. Did your wife leave you for a power mat salesman or something?

These looked a great concept at first but they do the opposite of what they say. They claim to save money and energy by wirelessly charging all of your devices that you place on the mat. Sounds amazing but it is not wireless, it is cordless so you still need a receiver for each of your devices.

Being cordless means that it must draw more current for each device that you put within it range so it can transmit the charge to each receiver, it doesn't just radiate energy to all devices that you place on the mat because it charges actively not passively, and with the losses associated with cordless power I'm sure that this has to be much less efficient than using the original charger for your phones.

Quite telling is the fact that it's seems very difficult to find out how power efficient the Powermat is. http://www.powermat.com/ For something that claims to be a green device shouldn't they promote their equipment using figures to show you how much energy you can save by charging all of your devices with one source, even if they are overrated marketting figures?

The fact is this is getting sales by playing the green card but doing exactly the opposite of what your good intentions are looking for. You already have the charger your phone/ipod/psp etc came with and now you have to buy a bunch more cordless chargers and use more power to charge them all.

So take into account your wasted old chargers, the money spent on this powermat and all the cordless recievers and the extra money and energy you need to spend to charge your devices and I would love to see some figures on how much wasted money/energy/C02 this all adds up to.

It would have been greener just to have one transformer and and octopus cable with all the connectors to charge whatever you need, but it wouldn't give the same impression as a magic "wireless" charger.

If you want to save energy and money for all of your devices just turn off all your phone/ipod/PSP/laptop/etc chargers when you are not using them.
