New York: Free electricity in public places and parks

Sometimes it’s not nice to own a smartphone to be – namely, when the battery slowly but surely cries out for an outlet and is not far and wide to see. AT & T would at least work in New York with his partners a little, however, in which one sets up solar-powered stations called batch Street, where you can tap power for free.

At a total of 25 locations scattered throughout New York City, there will be those stations, off we went yesterday in Fort Green Park in Brooklyn. More stations to follow the Union Square, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Coney Iceland, Riverside Park and the Hudson River Park

The stations are operated with three each 15 watt solar panels and have 6 USB slots. Users of iOS devices are both a 30-pin connector and a lighning, there are microUSB for Android – and Windows Phone customers and three ports to which you can accommodate your own USB cable.

According to the makers, the solar panels provide enough electricity to power the station, even if several times daily sun does not shine. AT & T has already announced that it would pull through similar projects in other cities, when the idea arrives in New York and works. I personally think is a great story about the leaders in Germany could also think about quiet times.

Especially in Germany, the search for a public outlet often a hopeless task. Even at airports often have nothing to do while in the U.S. I can provide free electricity with me almost every airport. England on my last trip, I noticed that I also find outlets in almost every bar or any restaurant that I can use. Many a pub stay was with the excuse that you only need current yes 😉 What do you think of the idea and can you imagine that it is also feasible to Germany?
