PowerPad: PowerMat’s Arch Enemy
Last week Powermat finally went retail with their wireless charging offering, and within a few days yet another contender has emerged on the market. From the folks at Gear4 comes the PowerPad. It’s not clear if it too uses inductive charging, or takes a similar route to that of the Wild Charge, but one thing is for sure: it’s built specifically for the iPhone.
Aesthetically it doesn’t look half bad and here’s hoping that it’s cheaper than Powermat’s setup, though they offer compatibility with a greater number of mobile devices. Expect more info to arrive sometime in November, with a preorder kicking off 10/15 and official retail launch sometime in December.
BTW, don’t confuse this with Nintendo’s offering…from the 80s. Commercial after the ‘leap’
