London-based company, ChargedUp, is applying the bike-sharing model to mobile phone charging by developing a network of vending stations where, for a small fee, users can borrow portable battery banks. They can use them for as long as they need and then return them to a station of their choosing. ChargedUp’s battery rental stations are launching across more than 30 locations in London this month and aims to be in over 1000 venues in London by the end of 2018.

The entire ChargedUp network runs on 100% clean energy through a partnership with green electricity company, Ecotricity. Users just need to locate a station using the ChargedUp app and then scan the QR code to release a battery. Each battery can charge a phone twice over and comes with connector cables for both iPhone and Android.
