Powermat introduces new line of Android charging solutions

Got cord fatigue? Powermat is easily one of the coolest charging solutions I have ever seen, except they didn’t officially support any Android phones (until today). Their product comes in many shapes and sizes and allows you to charge all your gadgets without cords.

Up to this point, Powermat required a special battery cover that connected to their power pad in order to charge your devices. Starting today, Powermat will be supporting the Motorola Droid and HTC myTouch 3G with custom battery covers.

Powermat will also be producing their own line of batteries that will not require a special battery cover. These new batteries will actually charge through the casing (as long as it is not metal).

In order to give customers more choices, Powermat will also begin producing different size power pads that will support a number of devices. New charging stations will become available that charge 1 ($39), 2 ($59), or 3 ($79) devices.

In addition to hardware, Powermat is currently developing their own native Android application that will display charging information.

Look to spring 2010 for these new products to begin appearing.

    I like the thought of batteries that charge through the plastic case….The biggest turn-off for powermat is that it makes a slim phone more bulky and heavier because it is external…..Add the new lower cost mat options and a Motorola Cliq battery and I will definitely look to purchase a Powermat or two!

    I am with you! I would love to get my hands on one of these if only they make a battery for my Sprint Hero.

    I’ve heard of this technology for years. My Sonicare Toothbrush has this feature. To charge it, it just sits in its cradle. There are no plugs, etc.

    It can’t possibly add THAT much bulk to complain about.
    Be thrilled this is possible!
