"This is a great opportunity to give the gift of wireless charging in a very personal, meaningful and powerful way," said Ron Rabinowitz, CEO of Duracell Powermat.  "Gifting a customized wireless charging case sends a message of both dependability and round-the-clock power while at the same time letting the recipient know that you are thinking about them on a very personal level."

Both Duracell Powermat Coveroo cases as well as the full Duracell Powermat '24 Hour Power' wireless charging systems, for both the iPhone 4/4S and The Samsung Galaxy S III are available on the Coveroo site so that consumers can maximize their wireless charging experience by purchasing a 'powermat' for wireless charging at home or in the office.  And, to ensure that consumers are never caught without power on-the-go, the third component of the full system, the backup battery, easily fits in any pocket or purse and provides up to one full charge from any location.

"Our customers have been asking for months for us to bring them a wireless power solution," said James Chapman, President of Coveroo.  "Partnering with an industry leader like Duracell Powermat, allows our customers to add wireless charging with total confidence from a brand they trust, while enabling them to show off their personality with a custom phone case."
