Wired Magazine, June 2019

The value of safe and secure charging:

Mobile phone charging lockers for students

Case Studies:

King's College London

King’s College London wanted to allow its students to charge their smartphones and tablets whilst on campus, but it wanted to avoid the expensive installation of power outlets in listed buildings around its estate.

Since installation in July 2015 over 725,000 charges have been completed, equating to over 400,000 hours of charging.

Queen Mary University

Keeping students connected while on campus is a priority for Queen Mary University of London. The university wanted to allow students to charge their smartphones and tablets whilst on campus and reduce ‘low battery anxiety’.

Since installation in July 2019, over 25,000 charges have been completed, equating to 13,290 hours of charging!
