Rent “Qubes” from Convenient Kiosks and
Charge Apple, Android, Blackberry Phones on the Go
LAS VEGAS (June 21, 2016) – A drained phone battery is the scourge of travelers, but new MobileQube charging kiosks at all seven Las Vegas Monorail stations provide a welcome and convenient solution. MobileQubes is a network of fully automated, self-service kiosks that allow customers to rent and return compact, battery “Qubes” and continue charging and using their devices on-the-go.
Customers simply select their device type (Apple, Android or Blackberry), swipe their credit or debit card, retrieve their portable charging “Qube,” plug it in to their phone and continue on with their busy day. When finished, the Qube can be returned to any MobileQubes kiosk, where it will automatically recharge for the next user. The cost to rent a fully charged Qube is $4.99 for a 24-hour period.
“We’ve all been there—whether as a tourist taking photos and videos of our vacation, or a business traveler checking emails or calling into conference lines from the tradeshow floor, a dying or dead phone creates stress,” said Ingrid Reisman, vice president and chief marketing officer, Las Vegas Monorail. “We’re pleased to partner with MobileQubes to offer this valuable customer service and peace of mind to our riders.”
Added Sean Carrigan, CEO and co-founder, MobileQubes: “We are thrilled to partner with the Las Vegas Monorail to bring the MobileQubes solution to their passengers. Staying charged while on-the-go in Las Vegas is key for the millions of people who visit each year and by working with the Las Vegas Monorail, we are able to add even more convenience and mobility to their system.
In addition to the seven Las Vegas Monorail Stations, MobileQubes kiosks may be found at the Flamingo and The LINQ.
