Last year Powermat exploded on to the scene at CES and we were there to catch it in the raw. This year, Case-mate is trailing behind the competition with the Hug, an iPhone case that brings “wireless” charging to the handset. Essentially it uses the same technology – inductive charging – only it costs about $50 less; $89.99 to be exact.
Case-mate’s Hug is part of the Wireless Power Consortium, which should mean that the case or the pad will be compatible with future iterations. Expect the Hug this month.

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."
