Powermat Launches Wireless Charging Pilot Program with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Powermat Technologies today launched a pilot program with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® to bring Duracell Powermat wireless phone charging to consumers in the Los Angeles area. Starting today, customers who visit select locations of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® can charge their mobile phones through Duracell Powermat's innovative and user-friendly platform for free.
Customers of The Coffee Bean & Tea LeafÂ® in these test locations will also be the first to experience the new Duracell Powermat Powermatrixâ„¢ App. Available at the iTunes Store and Google Play, the new app aids consumers in finding locations that are enabled with Power Matters Alliance (PMA) technology so they can always know how close they are to the next recharging opportunity. The App will also enable customers to purchase Duracell Powermat accessories online.
"We're excited to bring wireless power technology to our customers," said Mel Elias, President & CEO, The Coffee Bean & Tea LeafÂ®. "This will be a great additional convenience for our customers; now they will be able to recharge their phones while enjoying our beverages."
"We are delighted to work with The Coffee Bean & Tea LeafÂ® to offer real workable wireless charging installations to their consumers," said Ran Poliakine, CEO of Powermat Technologies. "We have a growing list of partners that are using our technology to ensure consumers are never powerless and we are thrilled to add The Coffee Bean & Tea LeafÂ® to the family."
The Coffee Bean & Tea LeafÂ® Los Angeles customers can charge most mobile phones in select stores through a range of PMA-compatible wireless offerings; including Duracell Powermat's wireless Rings, Cases or Batteries; and the free Powermatrix App. A limited supply of Duracell Powermat Ring Accessories is available for free during the pilot program at The Coffee Bean & Tea LeafÂ® test locations.
