Mobile Phone Charging Stations Pop Up In NYC Bars
A new startup takes mobile charging to a new level by introducing a sleek and stylish wall-mounted device to let users charge their phones anytime, anywhere for a flat fee.
New York-based startup – Juicebox is a simple mobile phone charging station that allows users to recharge their iPhones, Androids, or BlackBerries in public venues. The wall-mounted device charges a flat fee of $1 or $2, and then lets users access one of a color-coded locker that glows pink when charging and green when charged. The locker-type box uses credit cards as swipe keys to securely lock up the device while it’s charging.

In a Fast Company article, Cofounder and CEO Adam Johnson comments on how he sees certain potential for the Juicebox in venues ranging from gyms and sports arenas to casinos and movie theaters:
