If the action-packed days of summer have been draining your phone's battery, AT&T has a convenient (and free) solution for you. The telecom giant is once again rolling out its Street Charge solar-powered charging stations across New York City's five boroughs. The program began last year as a partnership between AT&T, Goal Zero and Pensa Design, but has since added 14 new locations at parks and beaches in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Read on to see a map and find the Street Charge station closest to you!
“The beaches are the place to be when the weather gets warm and AT&T is excited to be able to offer even more solar mobile charging stations to beach-goers throughout the summer,” said Marissa Shorenstein, New York State President, AT&T. “Keeping people connected is our goal and a fully charged battery will allow any New Yorker to enjoy their summer safely and uninterrupted.”
Each AT&T Street Charge station is equipped with three 15-watt monocrystalline solar panels, and is capable of charging six devices at a time. If your phone is running low on battery, simply locate your nearest module and plug in. You can even charge other small electronics via the USB cables (or bring your own since female cables will be available as well).
