EE has released a portable power USB charger which offers a handy solution for gadget-packing festival goers.
Most festival fans will be frustratingly familiar with the long wait times to get to a mains power point for mobile phones, so 4G service providers EE are now offering an alternative by selling the pocket gadget for £20 and the Festival Power Bar depends on an initial charge from mains. After that it can act as a stand-alone charger, packing its own reserve supply. Keep it in your pocket and when your phone or device runs low you can top up the battery by simply connecting with a USB lead.
USB charging devices like this are nothing new, we’ve seen them before under names such as Halo and Anker, but with just weeks to go until the Glastonbury festival which runs from June 25th to 29th EE is quite literally jumping on the bandwagon and stocking this item in stores and online for a limited time until June the 9th.
During the festival EE will be encouraging revellers to jump onto social media sites and upload pics and videos and will be providing mains charge areas at select festivals. EE is also developing the Glastonbury app which will be launched in the weeks before the event and will offer maps and schedules for the weekender.
And if you’ve also subscribed to EE’s 4G service the Festival Power Bar will be pretty nifty for ensuring a charge when catching up with that weekend’s big England match on your gadget, as Glastonbury organisers have shockingly just confirmed they will not be screening the World Cup game held in Brazil!
