11/15/12: Duracell Powermat Power Up Your Holiday Shopping

Next up in my Holiday Gift Guide is one for the technology buff in your family.  It is the Duracell Powermat 24 hour Power System which can charge two smartphones simultaneously, or one smartphone and one portable backup battery.  
The package contains a very slim charging mat called the Powermat.  To enable your phone you just put the Duracell Powermat case on it.  They are available in black, white and pink at retail, and also in blue, green, red, and silver online.  The case is very easy to put on your iPhone.  It has an area that bends back at the top so you can then snap it on after sliding it in the case.
 Here is the case on my phone.
Now you just need to place your phone in the case on to the Powermat.  You feel a bit of a magnetic pull as it pulls to where it needs to be in place.  The symbol on the back of the case lines up with a dot that is on the mat.  You can even charge two devices at once on the mat.  Here it is in black.  The mat is available in white and black.
The best part in my opinion is the last component that is for power on the go.  I constantly struggle with this when I go to conferences or all day events.  The Duracell Powermat Portable Backup Battery is charged on the mat as the phone is and you can use it any where after it is charged.  Just put your phone on the Backup Battery and you are charging up.  It is so tiny you can put it in your purse or in you pocket.
It also comes with a micro USB and Apple connectors so it works with any smartphone. Plus this would allow you to switch to any decorative case you have and just connect when you are on the go via one of these connections.
Another feature that is cool is that unlike other chargers it is smart.  It knows when your phone is charged and stops sending power once it is fully charged eliminating energy waste.
The Duracell Powermat complete set as shown includes the Powermat for 2 devices and the wireless case and retails for $99.99 and additional wireless cases retail for $34.99.  It supports not only the iPhone but also an array of other smartphones. For more information go to:
