CHEERS TO POWER STARVING DEVICES: US AIRPORTS SAY
Waiting for flights can be tiring, especially when cell phones are low on power and no charging point is vacant. So the resolution wasn’t far away, we are talking about 4 major and busiest airports in USA: John F Kennedy, Newark Liberty, Miami and Los Angeles, where even the addition of powered seats, power poles and outlet-endowed work stations couldn’t get rid of long queues of passengers waiting for their turn to charge power consuming big screen devices.
The 169 strapping new charging stations planted recently at these major airports should help in breaking the herds at charging poles. 44 of these new power stations are installed at John F. Kennedy International Airport, 24 at Newark Liberty International Airport, 64 at Miami International Airport and 37 at Los Angeles International Airport.
The old-style four outlet power polls with 2 USB ports will be substituted by new charging stations with units that have eight power outlets and six USB ports. For those Tech freaks and indolent passengers not carrying their USB chords with them, Wireless charging (inductive charging) installed at these stations is another exciting way to charge your mobile which must be compatible to Qi Technology.
The advertising monster JCDecaux is providing these new power stations which will also power two 32" digital, HD screens that run ads & commercials ( of course, That’s what they do).The commercials will be for Verizon which holds contract to fund these power stations for next two years.
Jean-Francois Decaux, co-chief executive officer of JCDecaux, stated "Bringing an indispensable service to passengers and an exclusive trademark experience craft these new devices a very persuasive media asset."
