ChargeBox powers students engagement at King’s College London
ChargeBox launches it's free to use charging solution at a prestigious university.
ChargeBox, the leading provider of secure device charging solutions, is teaming up with King’s College London, one of the most prestigious universities in the world, to provide free charging to students. ChargeBox has installed 24 of their new phone and tablet charging stations.
Mobile phones and tablets have become interactive learning devices for students, used for communication, research, note taking and much more. Successful universities are encouraging the use of portable devices and integrating them into the studying experience, with ubiquitous free Wi-Fi and bring your own device support on campus. Offering free device charging is the next step in the transition to omni-channel learning.
King’s College London is the first university in the UK to embrace secure phone and tablet charging, with the latest ChargeBox stations installed across the campus. Students will be able to securely charge their smartphones and tablets for 30 minutes, while carrying on learning and enjoying student life, stress free.
After a successful trial of ChargeBox+ smartphone charging stations earlier this year, King’s College London saw the need for tablet charging. ChargeBox jumped at the opportunity to launch its new charging solution, ChargeBox+ Max, a station with the capability to support most tablets in addition to all smartphones. ChargeBox estimates that the service will be used as many as a quarter of a millions times next year, benefiting a huge number of students.
Education is a primary target market for ChargeBox, in addition to retail and transport hubs, closely following King’s College London, we have delivered four ChargeBox+ Max to Said Business School, the business school of the University of Oxford.
Nick Leake, CIO of King’s College London said: “I am delighted we have been able to have ChargeBox provide on-campus charging facilities for our students. The telemetrics are excellent and we see high levels of usage as students recharge devices through the day. It is also great to be buying from a local British company with a really innovative product that is well designed. The team at ChargeBox have been a pleasure to work with and their product has enabled us to avoid expensive installation of power outlets in listed buildings around our estate.”
Ian Hobson, Founder and CEO of ChargeBox said: “We are delighted to be working with such a renowned university and look forward to a fruitful relationship. Our charging stations are highly secure and easy-to-use and we believe that they will contribute to the improvement of the life of Kings College London students enabling them to concentrate on their studies, rather than worrying about running out of battery.”
