Powermat is a new recharging technology that uses magnetic induction instead of wires to charge electronic devices. They claim 90% efficiency and equal time to charge. Very cool. There are video demos at their site and at Wired's CES Gadget Roundup. Slated to ship this fall. $100 for the charging mat. $30 for a device receiver. Their site also mentions wireless syncing as a future feature. Cool. [wired]

I'm excited for this to hit market, no more lugging power cords for my iPod, cell phone, blackberry and laptop everywhere I go. It seems as though it will be efficient and affordable which makes it even better.
