Mobile power is something in demand, did you charge your phone last night and even if you did will it last all day? Here is one solution that may get you out of a hole while out and about a charge station charge point, or you could just buy it all keep it with you, it has both iOS and Android connections built in.
If you opt for rental then you pay £1 for an hour of charging once your use gets to £3 you then get the rest of that day for free. This continues till you get to £30 when the Charged Up unit becomes yours to keep. Alternately you can get it from the website.
It is 14.5x7.5x1.2cm and weighs 168grams.
The left side has a groove for the hard wired 10cm long double ended micro USB and USB ‘C’ adapter. The same on the right side for the iPhone connector. So no trailing wires while in your pocket or bag.
The front of the unit shows the amount of charge represented by one two or three blue pin hole LEDs.
The base has six gold coloured pins to fit into the professional charging station. Alternatively for when you have purchased the unit a micro USB port on the base for home charging.
The unit has 6000 mAh which should be enough to charge most phones twice before it needs recharging.
Using it at home it took my phone to 70% charged in an hour. When the charger was empty I recharged it at home in three hours.
If you go for the rental option the unit can be returned to any of their charging stations.
As with so many things today an App is involved and should you opt for the £1 per hour the App can tell you where the nearest charge point is, currently these seem to be mainly in London in a range of café, bars, restaurants and hotels. Where I live there are three ChargedUp stations within a few miles.
ChargedUp has linked with Octopus Energy a green energy supplier who will match all the power used by the charged up network with renewable energy direct to the grid.
However as you would expect there are lots more when you visit London, the App once linked with your phone shows a map of the surrounding area and where has a ChargedUp station. Perhaps even more importantly whether that ChargedUp place is open or closed. It also shows the amount of walking time to get there.
