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.

Duracell Powermat Charger and Backup Battery

The Duracell Powermat has been around for a little while, but this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas they revealed their latest innovations to the product.  The Powermat, combined with a special case for your smartphone makes for very easy charging – simply lay your handset down on the mat and walk away.

They also showed off a backup battery which also charges on the Powermat and then can be carried with you so that you always have a source for emergency charging.  The new backup battery not only charges on the mat, but can also be charged via USB so you can use a variety of chargers, from computer to wall wart to a car charger.  You can check all of it out in the video below and also visit them on the web.
