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’
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
