The multifunctional Mito station is located near a tram station at Istanbul‘s Taksim Square. Commissioned by Turkish company Verisun, the station allows people to charge their phones and access the Internet. It also features a built-in LCD screen that displays the station and route name, as well as useful information on air temperature and bus or tram arrival times.

Mito is entirely powered by solar energy thanks to a solar panel installed on its roof, ensuring that no additional pressure is put on the city’s already strained grid to keep people’s phones full of juice. More charging stations are expected to appear in several other cities across Turkey soon, and we think that is great.
