Tricopian deploys FuelRod mobile charging kiosks at two US airports


US-based Tricopian, developer of the new FuelRod mobile charging services, has expanded its kiosk network at Raleigh–Durham International Airport (RDU) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).

The company’s ‘Power-on-the-Go’ service will enable passengers at the two airports to easily charge their Apple or Android devices without electrical outlets or charging stations.

At RDU, Tricopian has installed a total of five SwapBox kiosks in locations near the airport’s A, C and D Gates, as well as the Terminal 1 ticketing area.

An additional six kiosks have been installed near the A, B, C, and D Gate areas at IAD.

FuelRod co-founder and CEO Chi Yau said: “We’re excited to add both Raleigh-Durham and Washington Dulles to our growing portfolio of airports.

“We have a strong commitment to the airport industry and are focused on continuing to grow the network of kiosks available to the travelling public.”

Each kiosk is equipped with fully charged, ready-to-use, mobile charger kits that provide a safer and convenient way to passengers to recharge a smartphone or tablet.

The charging kit can be exchanged at any FuelRod kiosk worldwide.

FuelRods are small, portable, rechargeable chargers that provide up to eight hours of talk time for an iOS or Android phone, and approximately four hours of usage for an average tablet.

The chargers can be easily recharged by using any standard USB adaptor or can be replaced at any FuelRod SwapBox with a new, fully charged, ready-to-use replacement rod.
