Shop for shoes while you charge your phone at the Aventura Mall

July 7th, 2012 · No Comments

Aventura, Florida is a community with many excellent attractions. One of the most famous of these is surely the Aventura Mall. According to an article in Travel + Leisure it is the second most visited indoor shopping center in the United States. Now, this favorite destination of shopaholics is even better than before. That’s because it has recently added cell phone charging stations to its list of conveniences.

If you’ve ever been in a mall and decided to call someone only to find out that your cell phone has a dead battery, you know the importance of being able to charge it up again. Phone charging stations let you do that right away. Better yet, they let you do it much faster than your ordinary charger could; they can fully charge a phone in 15 minutes or less. This is because they use extra-efficient charging devices that can quickly charge your phone’s battery without overloading it.

The idea for charging stations came to Paul King, founder of GoCharge, when he was aggravated by his own phone running out of juice while he was out and about. He developed the GoCharge cell phone charging stations to eliminate this problem.

Originally, the stations were set up in nightclubs, concert venues and other such places. Now, GoCharge has expanded to the Aventura Mall and more places in Aventura, Florida.

There are two main types of charging stations: kiosks that allow people to plug into one of the chargers with their phone in the open, and lockers that allow a person to lock their phone in for up to an hour. The first option is good for situations where a person can keep their eye on the phone during charging. Lockers allow users to simply lock the door and go about other business as the process occurs.

The cost for using the GoCharge technology is low: only about $2-$3 for a charge from an open kiosk and $5 for a locker.
