The Powermat Model Powermat is a system a lot of us are familiar with, but it requires a special mat, a special phone case, and it still needs a cord.

Check out Better off Ted (on Netflix). Jendi June 28, 2012 I would appreciate not having to charge my phone so much. I transfer a cord from the car, to the house, to the laptop bag, etc. I can’t even guess how different my children’s life could be. I never watched Battlestar Galactica, but I have seen all of the Psych episodes and liked most of them.
