Plug In at Fresh Charging Stations, from JFK to LAX
August 29, 2014 at 7:30 AM
On your next trip out of town keep an eye out for some charging stations at a few major airports. Sure it’s not worth scoring some airfare just to check them out, but we can’t complain when someone is doing something to make the travel experience that much better.
In total there’s 169 brand new charging stations doing their thing, as they’ve been installed over the last couple weeks at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, and Miami International Airport. Look for them in areas where plenty of travelers are coming and going—think spots like the gate areas, the restaurants, and the shops.
There’s plenty of USB ports, regular outlets, and some of them offer up wireless charging areas—for those down with that Qi technology.
The folks over at JCDecaux—they make their business on advertising in spots like the airport—are responsible for the additions, so while you’re charging your things they’ll be trying to sell you stuff. There will be a pair of 32” screens running all kinds of commercials and advertisements, but most of them sound like they’ll be for Verizon. Happy charging!
