Chargebox. We’ve talked about mobile phone charging systems before on the Ferret, and we’re still not sure whether this tech service has staying power. The idea is that you use these charging lockers to power up your handset when you’re out and about and depleted. Is there a demand for this? Enough for a business plan? [Via Gizmag]
Have you ever run out of battery whilst you are away from your home and been unable to use your phone or ipod? Have you wished there was some way to charge it before you got home? If so ChargeBox is the solution you’ve been hoping for. ChargeBox is a machine which enables you to charge devices such as mobile phones, ipods and pdas inside a securable locker. You can safely leave your device charging and collect it at your convenience. ChargeBoxes can be found in locations such as hotels, gyms, train stations, airports, hospitals, internet cafes and on the high street. It costs £1 to use a ChargeBox which gives you up to 40 minute charging time. This can be paid either with a coin or by SMS.
