California State University, San Bernardino installs Powermat across Campus.

wireless-powerPowermat Technologies is installing its wireless charging platform at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB), allowing students to charge their mobile phones so they can stay connected to the information and learning resources they need while on the go.

CSUSB says it is the first university globally to offer wireless power on campus, and it will soon integrate Powermat technology into high-traffic common spaces, student union areas, study areas, and on campus cafes and restaurants.

The second wave will then see broader implementation in the university’s library and classrooms.
