Cafés, Bars, Restaurants, Hotels, Offices and Other Public Venues now offer a convenient smartphone charger, greatly enhancing customer experience and repeat visits.

Vessl chargers will recharge mobile devices up to 30% faster than normal smartphone chargers.

"Businesses offering Vessl to their clientele are raising the bar on Customer Service. It's an easy way to give mobile users that much-needed charge while they meet over coffee, lunch, or work. It's a perk that will soon be as ubiquitous as public wi-fi."

Connect Group Enterprises, a company with offices in San Francisco and Seoul, South Korea, is bringing Vessl – an elegant, portable, and easy-to-use mobile phone charging device – to North American local businesses, event venues, offices and other social spaces.

Business owners make individual Vessl chargers available to customers for as long as they are on site. Vessl powers up to two smartphones at a time; once the customer is ready to go, he or she returns the charger and departs with a freshly charged device.

The Problem:
A mobile society has created a growing dependency upon mobile devices for work, home, play, errands and nightlife. Smartphones are used primarily to access online information, and all that data streaming drains batteries like crazy. No wonder “battery life” is the single most important factor cited when purchasing a smartphone. And the number one smart-practice to maximize a mobile phone battery? Charge it more often! The problem is: How and where can mobile society charge a smartphone quickly and easily?

The Solution:
Vessl is a portable, easy-to-use charger designed for service-based venues where customers spend a considerable amount of time. Restaurants, Cafes, Bars, Gyms, Salons, Hotels – can offer Vessl to customers, enabling them to charge smartphones while enjoying lunch, coffee, a meeting, or workout.
