Duracell myGrid Smart Power Simplified
Eliminate cord clutter

Eliminate cord clutter

myGrid can charge up to four devices at once using a single cord and outlet, getting rid of the mess of multiple cords. Since myGrid is as fast as standard chargers based on USB 2.0, it’s an efficient way to charge multiple devices.

Drop-and-go charging for up to four devices at once

Drop-and-go charging for up to four devices at once

Power up to four myGrid-enabled devices, such as Blackberry®, HTC®, Motorola® or Apple® phones, on myGrid at the same time. A blue indicator light lets you know that your devices are charging.

Ultra-slim profile

Ultra-slim profile

myGrid doesn’t take up a lot of space, making it ideal for counter tops, nightstands or any other flat surface near an electrical outlet. The pad measures 6.75" x 8.5" and the actual charging surface is less than 1/8" thick.

Safe to Touch

Safe to Touch

A blue indicator light turns on when your devices receive power. myGrid is safe to touch–the charging surface and light automatically turn off if your fingers, keys, or coins come in contact with it. When not in use, myGrid will be in Sleep Mode, in which the charging surface and the indicator light both turn off.

Enable your devices

myGrid is easy to use. To start charging, you must first install a Power Clip™ or Power Sleeve™ to your compatible device. Then, simply drop your device on myGrid to charge.

Installing and using the Power Clip

Step 1

Insert the proper tip into the device's charging port. Press the tip into the charging port and ensure a proper fit.

Step 2

Place the Power Clip on the tip and make sure the two are sealed together properly, then swivel the Power Clip over the center of the phone and press firmly into place (remove the adhesive backing on the Power Clip prior to installation).

Step 3

Place the device on myGrid, making sure that it rests fully on the pad. The blue indicator light will appear on myGrid when the device is being charged properly.

Customer Reviews

For a product like this that most people have never used before, it is severely lacking.
PhotoGraphics
Why it's a waste of money: the package comes with only ONE Power Clip, so technically you can't charge 4 devices by just buying the starter kit.
Clevelander83
It's just quicker and easier to leave a cord plugged in someplace handy, or to charge my phone in my combo speaker/charger.

The Duracell myGrid charging device is a product you want to like. Imagine the possibilities, you come home and toss your phone, iPod or other device on the pad and walk away. No wires to plug and unplug, no more having several chargers plugged in the wall outlet. A wireless home power grid, truly the wave of the future.

In reality, though, this is truly a product that is far from being ready for prime time and is not the "wave of the future" powergrid you would think it is. More accurately it is an "extension cord" that transfers power via contacts in a totally traditional way.

It ships with 3 tips that fit an infinitesimally small number of phone models. Unfortunately, not MY Blackberry nor MY cell phone. The design of the power tips prevent them from being used on any other device than the exact model specified.

There are two glaring problems that Duracell should have considered and abandoned the whole concept of a power grid. One is that the location of the charging receptacle varies from phone to phone. On mine it was impossible to fit it in and have it connect to the included charging adapter.

The other problem is the charging adapter itself. It is a fairly large disc that you have to glue to the back of your phone with double-stick tape. Whaaat? Are you kidding me? So to make it line up with the little charging tip it is probably 90% likely to have to be glued over the phone's camera, flash or rear speaker. That's just plain dumb!

Not to mention, now you have a cell phone that you bought to be as small and convenient as possible, that you can slip into your pocket or purse or nice leather carrying case ... but no more!

Size Name: Apple iPhone Starter Kit Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This product is meant to be mistaken for an inductive charging system and has 3 major problems:

1. The box says it charges up to 4 devices-- well, two iPhones would just barely fit on it... so you'll not be charging 4 of those. The power supply that comes with this is a 1A power supply, and the iPhone itself needs more or less an amp to charge at full speed... so you can't charge 2 iPhones at full speed.

2. When your product requires your customer to use a special case... Make sure said case is not a ill-fitting and unattractive.

3. The case must be removed to sync, or charge off a normal charger.

If you are willing to accept these limitations, all you win is the ease of not plugging in your iPhone when you get home... Is it really that hard to do?

Size Name: Apple iPhone Starter Kit Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was very excited to get this item because between the kids and me we have an iPhone and two iPod Touch units. I was thrilled to see I could buy skins to fit the iPod Touch units and use them on this charger (as opposed to it just being for the iPhone) and thought this would make charging much easier than trying to plug one unit in for awhile and remembering to come back later to switch over to another one.

The setup couldn't be easier. You simply place the skin over the phone, plug the charger into the wall, and lay the phone on the charger. It immediately connected and started charging. The phone charged quickly and fully with no problems at all. I have no complaints at all with the functionality of the charger.

So, the two big drawbacks... I have an iFrogz case that I love as do both the kids (we actually know which iPod Touch belongs to which child based on the iFrogz color). To use the charger, you have to remove any existing case and use the Duracel skin instead. The second drawback is that to synch your phone, you have to remove the skin to be able to plug in the cord to connect to the computer.

If you are okay with using the Duracel skin all the time and the synch issue doesn't bother you, this would be a great device. It works perfect and does everything it claims to do. But, those two usability issues will bother a lot of people.

Size Name: Starter Kit Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Let me begin by saying who I believe should buy a charging pad such as this one: if you have multiple cell phones that you would like to charge, or if you are very tired of having to go search for your ordinary plug-in charger and then fiddling to plug that into your phone. Also, this particular kit only works for owners of Motorola, Nokia and Blackberry phones. Users of any other brands can forget about this as chances are high that the right charging plug is not included. iPhone users, do know that according to Duracell's website an iPhone version of this pad is supposed to be out in Spring 2010.

So what is this product? The Duracell myGrid charging system basically allows you to place your cell phone on a mat to charge instantly, without having to fiddle around for a charging cord. Many similar charging systems that are now out use a physics concept called induction to charge the phone, where there are no exposed metal contacts on either the charging pad or the phone. The Duracell myGrid is NOT one of these chargers, however. Probably in the interest of cheaper costs, Duracell chose to use the older, very common concept of conduction where metal contacts on the phone and charger conduct charges.

So what does that mean? It means that the myGrid charging pad is actually one large pad with a large metal surface area. When turned on, this large metal area IS energized with electric charges. At first glance, you might think that you can shock yourself by touching the pad. Nothing to fear folks, as the electricity flowing through the pad is too weak to create any noticeable shocks. And to add peace of mind, if the pad detects your finger or anything else that conducts electricity (like keys, jewelry, etc.) to be touching the pad, then it shuts off the current.
