For this week's Crave giveaway, we've got Powermat's upcoming new Wireless Charging System for the iPhone. Yes, you heard right, upcoming, which means if you win you'll be this first on your block with one of these puppies when it's officially released mid-April.
In case you don't know what Powermat's all about, its products allow you to charge cell phones (and other stuff) by simply laying the product down on a mat that's plugged into the wall. Powermat's new Wireless Charging System for the iPhone comes with a Powermat 1X mat, receiver/case for iPhone, and a power supply. The big improvement with the new model is that the receiver doesn't bulge out of the back of the case like the old receiver did.
Earlier this year, editor Kent German reviewed Powermat's Home and Office Mat and gave it three and half stars. (See his full review here).
Normally, the Wireless Charging System for the iPhone would cost about $70, but you have the chance to get it gratis.
