Jay-Z is linking up with Duracell and Powermat to act as a spokesperson for “Wireless Power Nation,” a phone charging system that will be installed on tables and bars in coffeeshops, restaurants, clubs, gyms, and public venues across the country.

Currently, Jay-Z has the service available in his 40/40 Club in New York City.

The revolutionary technology allows patrons to charge their phones by simply placing their cell phone or wireless device on the table.

Duracell and GM have already used the technology on the Chevy Volt as well, so it is likely that consumers will see this technology in more and more cars in the near future as the technology becomes less expensive and demand increases for the convenience.

Ron Rabinowitz, Duracell Powermat CEO, told Mashable.com that there will be a Google app that will display a map of hotspots near an individual’s location.

Duracell currently offers the 24 Hour Power System for $100, which can be used on the go. For more information, visit www.duracellpowermat.us.
