We’ve rolled out power bank stations at dozens of venues in Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton and the Bay of Plenty — and we’ll be adding more venues soon.
Check out the Volty app map for your nearest venue.
We only launched Volty in August, but the power banks have already provided thousands of charges to phones and other mobile devices.
If you haven’t yet joined the hundreds of Kiwis using Volty, you can download the app now and get the first 2 hours of charge for free: Google Play https://bit.ly/3zwWZ0O; Apple App Store https://apple.co/3bvv61k.
Power bank rental costs from just $1.75 an hour, a special price guaranteed until 31 January 2023 that’s in line with NZ inflation-relief cost-of-living measures. And we share revenue with venue partners.
Phone charging stations nearly booked out
We also have our first event with our new power bank service: We’ll have Volty Powerbank stations at next month’s Beer Festival, powered by The Beer Spot, at The Cloud on Auckland’s Queens Wharf.
Meanwhile, our secure phone charging stations are in high demand for events and we’re close to being booked out this season.
We were excited to customise two phone charging stations for Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi for this weekend’s Ngāti Awa Te Toki kapa haka event at Edgecumbe Domain this weekend.
This awesome institution chose really striking artwork for their charging stations and sent us a great video to play on the 19-inch LCD, which we upload as part of the service.
We can wrap stations in any branding clients want, building brand trust while driving foot traffic, dwell time, engagement and more.
There’s also the option for clients to sell the advertising space to third parties, such as sponsors, to cover the cost of hiring our charging stations — or even turn a cash positive.
Given our phone charging stations are nearly booked out, it’s a good idea to book in advance to guarantee a ChargeBox at your event.
