Powermat and Starbucks collaboration is the most talked about in the wireless charging industry. Starbucks declared in November 2014 that there are more than 200 outlets only in San Francisco where anyone with PMA enabled wireless charging phone can recharge while having a taste of the delicious coffee. Not only Starbucks, but McDonalds as is gearing up to provide the PMA wireless charging facility in most of its outlets across Manhattan. Also, there are many other coffee shops and restaurants in other countries which are providing the PMA wireless charging.
The question is how to find these Powermat locations where the wireless phone charging is available? Well, it is as easy as to open an app on iPhone or Android phone. Download the free app call Powermat on the smartphone (we will talk about iPhone in this article). The app has a built in location service wherein it will till the exact location of the place where Powermat charging is available and the exact distance from you current location. Just look for the location nearest to your current position and head towards it.
Now, you just can‘t walk into the place and start charging you phone. You will need special charge receiving case or a Powermat Ring. The Powermat Ring is a convenient to use and carry, and affordable. With a price of $9.99 you can purchase a ring from the Starbucks or any other outlet which is compatible to your phone. Once you insert the ring to your phone just put the phone on the power-mat on the coffee table and enjoy your coffee while the phone gets charge. If you don’t want to invest in buying the ring then you can borrow it as well. But I will suggest that if you love your coffee then $9.99 is not a big expense.
So, enjoy your coffee and wireless phone charging.
