The need and culture for accessible location driven charging solutions has arrived. In tune with today’s expectation of location-based free Wi-Fi service - Chargello is at the forefront of a new era in consumer behavior, where consumers through the Chargello app (available on iTunes/Android) can quickly locate a wide variety of venues including restaurants, hotels, bars, and café’s, whether for after-work cocktail/happy hour, business lunch, group dinner. Just about anywhere, for any occasion that a customer is staying for 20 mins plus eliminating the headache of a dying battery & assuring patrons that their venue of choice offers Chargello, free of charge. The result is groundswell shift in consumer behavior enabled by genuine unfiltered offering to customers of a “no strings attached” valued service offering, and in turn creating a charging culture.
Chargello’s innovative product design and charging stations provide venues with a fast, portable, and hassle-free way to charge customer phones. 38% of customers will leave a venue when their battery dies (LG Electronics 2016 survey).

For venues, Chargello puts an end to the constant stream of charge requests during operational hours while eliminating liability issues caused by lost/damaged/stolen phones. With the introduction of a brand new mobile advertising channel, brands can now place their ad directly on Chargello batteries.
