What are cellphone charging kiosks?
Cellphone charging kiosks are free standing commercial grade kiosks that feature lockable boxes to charge your cellphone. On the kiosk are lockable boxes for charging your phone with a universal cellphone charging cable.

To open a locker the user has to set and confirm a password. Once the password is confirmed a cellphone locker door open allowing you to safely insert your phone and connect for charging. To remove your phone you simply type in the locker number and your password. This setup allows for 100% safe cellphone charging.
On the outside of each cellphone charging locker are LED lights that indicate occupancy. If the locker is in use the light is red and green if available. This makes it easy for users to view if the cellphone charging kiosk is available while adding a nice visual appeal to the cellphone charging kiosk that is engaging and inviting.
