Samsung invites travel weary gizmos to charge up


Modern day devices are able to perform a whole lot of tasks, but there is still one major drawback to think about – the lack of battery life. Yes sir, your smartphone might be able to help you arrive at an unfamiliar destination, check the weather, surf the Internet, reply your emails, perform your online shopping needs, but at a price of draining its battery before the day is over.

Those who do plenty of traveling often have to juice up their devices the day before they fly, as only select flights come with a power outlet in economy class (First and Business class passengers need not worry), and sometimes, inter-continental flights might just push the boundaries of your device’s battery to the limit, especially when you’re bored with the in-flight movie catalogue. Samsung feels your pain, which is why they have installed 20 newly designed charging stations throughout the terminals at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).

DCA will be the first airport that sees these redesigned charging stations cater to travelers who need a place to conveniently charge their mobile phones, laptops and other personal electronics – for free, yo! With over 40 charging stations at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), you can be sure that having your flight make a transit at those airports would be a boon – not a bane.

These redesigned Samsung Mobile charging stations will comprise of half a dozen electrical outlets that are compatible for U.S. voltage (i.e., 120 volts), two USB charging outlets, a quartet of micro USB mobile phone charging plugs and a touchscreen display which will offer travelers additional value through informational content such as news, weather and flight information.

There is also a Whats New tab that users can access to learn more about Samsung Mobiles latest devices. Apart from that, the charging stations will also boast of a small shelf that can your charging device – just make sure you keep a keen eye out lest someone with fast hands make a quick getaway of your favorite piece of portable consumer electronics.
