Chargebox

To all of those readers who have found themselves on a trip hopelessly looking for the cell phone charger that has just as hopelessly been forgotten at home, I am sure the ChargeBox service would be more than welcome.

ChargeBox stations look like mini storage lockers where you can safely place and recharge your mobile devices; a full recharge will cost you just 1, payable either by inserting a coin or by SMS. An indicator at the top will let you know when your device is fully charged.

Each ChargeBox has six lockers, each of them suitable for a different device or manufacturer. The service is available for all major cell phone brands, the Blackberry, the iPod and the all important PSP.

ChargeBoxes can be found in locations such as hotels, gyms, train stations, airports, hospitals, internet cafes and on the high street, though, as far as I can tell, currently only in the U.K.

when i'm in hongkong i make use of their charging services in hongkong. you leave your batteries (for phones) or phone while waiting for the thing to charge.

and i think i've seen a similar but uglier counterpart in singapore too.
