Chevy Volt to Offer Cordless Cell Phone Charging Using Powermat Techology

If you're running a little low on cell phone juice and need a boost, the Chevy Volt will soon have you covered. General Motors has just announced that they've paired up with Powermat (a wireless charging technology) to bring Volt owners a new way to charge their personal electronic devices without those pesky charging cords.

The new Powermat technology will let drivers charge their electronic devices, like cell phones and MP3 players, safely and efficiently. This new technology will be available many future Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac products beginning in mid-2012 and GM will invest $5 million in Powermat to develop this new technology. This mat will definitely change the way you get charged up while driving.

"Imagine a mat or shelf where you could put your iPhone, your Droid or other personal device and charge it automatically while you commute to work, run errands or as you're driving on a family vacation," said Micky Bly, GM's lead electronics executive, including infotainment, hybrids and battery electric vehicles.
