When industry titans come together, innovations like the Duracell Powermat are born. The Powermat wire-free charging station revolutionized the gadget industry with its simple and no-hassle design.
Although the technology is nothing new, the concept of putting these energized pads in New York bars has got the industry buzzing -- especially when they hear rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z is involved. The megastar entertainer has signed on to be an investor and spokesperson for this high-tech collaboration. The energy-exuding countertops will allow patrons to charge their devices straight on the table. The technology has the potential to be integrated into not just bars, but also coffee shops, restaurants and airports.
The days of feeling stranded with a dead device after a long night out may be over with Duracell Powermat rolling out across the nation.
