The docking stations use a standard USB plug, so it can be used to charge and sync with a computer. If it is for an iPhone, it came with an adapter to plug into the wall for charging.

Powermat Wireless Charger

I’ve fallen in love with the Powermat. Maybe it’s because I was born under the Aquarius zodiac and as a result I’m weak in the knees for new gadgets, but nevertheless this charger is a fun glimpse into the future. The Powermat is a small plate that uses magnetic induction to wirelessly charge your gadgets: iPhone, BlackBerry, etc. Simply add a receiver to your gadget… if it’s a BlackBerry, it means a new battery door. Using a Miniot case for your Apple gadget? Add the Powermat univeral dock. Imagine stopping by your favorite coffee/hot chocolate shop and laying your phone down on the counter; as you sip, the counter powers your phone. This technology can be implanted into any surface, so just imagine what it means for the future of decorating and industrial design on the whole!

Also available in a foldable travel version.

Multipot Personal Electric Charger

I’ve always been slightly intrigued by this piece of technology but I find it a LOT more intriguing now that it’s 25% off (temporarily).

For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, the MultiPot Personal Electric Charger serves as a charger for up to 5 portable devices, as a place to store all your charging cords and as an ambient LED light source. The Multipot can shine light for 60,000 hours by pushing the button on the lid of the bucket. That’s 7 years.

Also, do not be fooled by the photo. It’s actually a lot smaller in person. It’s only 7.5″ high with a 9.25″ Diameter. It also comes with a 50 inch cord.
