Simms secures Powermat wireless charging agency for NZ

Simms International New Zealand has announced its fifth agency, with the addition of Powermat wireless charging products.

The range was introduced by Simms in Australia last month and will sell here through major local retailers from the 4th of June.

Powermat Australia product and marketing manager Mike Morgan says the charging mat bundles are targeted mainly at home users, who want to charge multiple devices using only one charger. The mats and device cases use RFID and magnetic induction charging to power iPods, iPhones, Blackberrys, other cellphones, GPS units and handheld gaming systems. With one mains power cord, the mats also have a USB port.

Simms will be offering four bundled kits including a Starter Kit with the Powermat and a Powercube adapter with nine tips to charge devices from most major manufacturers. The other bundles include a wrap for charging Nintendo gaming systems, an iPhone skin, and a battery door for Blackberrys.

There is also a dock for any dockable iPod or iPhone. Each kit costs $249.95, with additional receivers costing $59.95.

Simms’ New Zealand managing director Paul Johnston says as well as major retailers, gaming-specialist retailers are also interested in offering Powermat products. The distributor also plans to expand the channel to include corporate and telco-focused partners later in the year.
