As the founder of this United Kingdom based start-up has experienced time and time again, he’s sat on the floor of an airport patiently waiting for his phone to recharge. Of course he’s not the only one with this problem – we see other outlet squatters in any airport. Finding those coveted plugs before anyone else sometimes decides the fate of your upcoming plane ride. Unfortunately not every plane has plugs or USB ports onboard, which means that finding a free plug while waiting for your flight to board has become a common occurrence in many airports around the world.
What’s so special about this technology? Well, it boasts to charge any electronic device from mobile phones to laptops in less than five minutes. Yep, that’s right. Five minutes. That’s not even enough time to get fully comfortable at that plug you found on the other side of the floor from your gate. Could this really be a thing of the future? If you’re like me, you’ll come to find that questioning technology these days is a massive waste of time. Nothing’s impossible anymore – it’s simply a matter of time. Advancements are inevitable and they will happen.
So what does that mean if you can fully recharge your phone in just five minutes or less? Keep reading to find out!
It makes life way easier at the airport
This one’s a no-brainer – if it wasn’t the number one reason for creating this amazing piece of technology, it definitely should be. It means that if you’re only spending five minutes on sitting on the airport floor waiting for your phone to charge, it means you have more time to relax while waiting for your flight. Maybe grab that cup of coffee, walk around, surf the web, have a glass of wine… the list goes on! Since most travellers typically get to the airport within an hour or so of boarding, it means more time for everything else. So get off the airport floor and do something else! I know you’d rather do something much more exciting than waiting for your device to juice up!
Recharge more of your devices
It’s just common courtesy to share the outlets at the airport – you’re not the only one with a phone that’s dying. So if you only need five minutes before your phone is fully recharged, maybe you can charge your laptop or camera – if each device only takes five minutes or less, why not? Imagine you listening to music on your phone and playing on your laptop during your flight. It makes flying that much more enjoyable. Who cares if there’s a baby onboard crying their lungs out? You’re ready to tune out the ear-piercing cries until you land because it only took you five minutes to charge your devices!
Sharing the electric wealth
You’ve seen it happen more often than not – you’re seated at a plug and someone else looks frantically for one because their phone is dying. Because Zap&Go doesn’t yet exist, it means that you’ll take longer and that poor guy is still searching for a plug. Next thing you know, his flight is boarding and he didn’t get a chance to juice up. You know the poor guy will have a music-less flight. Poor guy. With Zap&Go, it means you can share the outlets with other travellers so everyone can board their flights with fully charged devices – WIN, WIN, WIN!
I personally still can’t believe charging anything for five minutes, but again, it’s just a matter of technology. Zap&Go has already presold in over 70 countries, and soon it’ll be at a store near you! If you’re always out & about, this is definitely something you need to pack all the time!
