Charge on the go. Securely.

Check out the ChargeBox!

It is a set of lockers designed to charge the batteries of phones and other mobile devices for the average person on the go. This is a genius idea in the age of technology and I’d definitely use it.

Created by British Boxbrands, ChargeBoxes have six lockers with each locker containing four different chargers. The user picks the appropriate locker for their device, opens the door and attaches the device to a charger inside. Payment is then made either with a GBP 1 coin or by sending an SMS to a specific code. Once payment has been received, the door can be locked and charging begins. The device is charged for 40 minutes, or less if a user is in a hurry and doesn’t need a fully charged battery. The system offers a charging solution that covers 90 percent of handsets on the market, and also replenishes batteries of Blackberries, PDAs, iPods and PSPs.

The locker aspect is what sells the idea because it means users can leave their device behind and continue on with their activities and come back. I think this will pick up fast.
