Today was a very exciting day for Droid users at CES. At the PowerMat Booth, I got a chance to get inside and learn about all of the new technology that PowerMat has been Developing. Before now, if a cell phone user wanted inductive charge, you either needed the goofy adapter or you had to put the bulky case on your phone. Now, thanks to PowerMat, this is no longer needed. PowerMat has unveiled a new inductive charging system for the Droid!
This sytem replaces the battery and back cover of the phone with their special battery and inductive charging system. The new cover contains the RFID tag that PowerMat uses to tell the charger to stop when the battery is full and has connectors that align to a special set of connectors on the battery.
Being that this is a magnetic based charging system, I did ask if this would interfere with the dock features of the Droid but they were unable to answer at this time.
Another cool feature was the powermat car charger. It plugs into the cigarette lighter and you set your phone into it. This automatically charges the phone for you.
Release date for this is June 2010. You can get it at amazon and also Wal-Mart and Target.
Please feel free to ask any questions and I will answer them if I can
