Imagine a young suited-up business man, let’s call him John, getting into his shiny Cadillac. It’s clear that he’s in a hurry, probably late for an important business meeting. Naturally he places his smartphone near the audio compartment, like we all do when getting into our car. But this is where the magic starts: the smartphone immediately starts to recharge itself. John can use his phone regularly like he always does, making calls and listening to music.
John doesn’t need to give his smartphone battery a single thought all day. The battery automatically charges when he’s driving. He doesn’t need to deal with cables at all. The old-fashioned scenario of plugging in your phone in the best case, or dealing with torn cables and car chargers that don’t work in the worst case, are a thing of the past.
Although it seems like a futuristic scenario, it’s not. Powermat was the first wireless charging company to penetrate the in car wireless charging market, working with automotive manufacturers since 2010.
Powermat’s in car wireless charging
Powermat’s in car wireless charging network is the most widely deployed in the market and is continuing to grow every day.
