Duracell Powermat with Backup Battery for Emergency Charging

Beth Harrison Meyer from Duracell Powermat joined us for the TPN CES Live action. We’ve talked with them in the past, and the Powermat is always looking at ways we charge our devices.

This year, Duracell showed a Powermat backup battery.  It gives you an emergency charge, and can just sit on the Powermat when not in use. This backup battery also can be charged via USB.

Duracell is Bringing Wireless Charging Everywhere

Duracell is starting in one the mecca’s of sports, Madison Square Garden, in their pursuit to build a network of wireless charging everywhere you go. They will be partnered with some 2013 cars and envision a future of airports, coffee shops, and more where your devices will just charge wirelessly simply by being there in that location.

Partnered with Proctor and Gamble, Duracell is perhaps the first to tackle this market, and they are in it in a big way with lots of expansion plans. Your phone won’t just magically charge by being present in a location, though. There will be Powermat stations available in locations where you will likely spend an extended period of time, like coffee shops, bars, and the like. They also plan a Google Maps app that will show you charging locations in your area. In fact, eventually they envision the Powermat technology built right into new devices with no case necessary.

WiPower wireless charging pad

Qualcomm partners at CES introduced improved technology for wireless charging pads.  I had to take a look at the next generation of charging pads!

The trade name is WiPower and this is a result of a partnership between Qualcomm, Gill Industries, and Ever Win Industries.

This product is due out in Q2 of 2011.  I can’t wait!  I have more cables than I can shake a stick at!  Wireless rocks!
