At the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), which serves 11 million passengers each year, a total of five SwapBox kiosks are installed in locations near A, C and D Gates as well as the Terminal 1 ticketing area. An additional 6 kiosks will be deployed at the Washington Dulles International Airport, a gateway to our nations capital serving 22 million passengers annually, in the A, B, C, and D gate areas. Each kiosk provides travelers with fully charged, ready-to-use, mobile charger kits that offer a safer and more convenient way to recharge a cell phone or tablet.
?Were excited to add both Raleigh-Durham and Washington Dulles to our growing portfolio of airports, said FuelRod co-founder and CEO, Chi Yau. ?We have a strong commitment to the airport industry and are focused on continuing to grow the network of kiosks available to the traveling public.
The rechargeable FuelRods are small portable chargers that deliver up to 8 hours of talk time for an Apple® or Android smartphone or nearly 4 hours of usage for the average tablet. Each FuelRod kit is priced at just $20 and can be exchanged at any FuelRod kiosk around the world. Once the battery is depleted, the FuelRod module can be recharged by using any standard USB adaptor, or it can be quickly exchanged at any FuelRod SwapBox for a fresh, fully charged ready-to-use replacement rod.
