No more phone or tablet flat batteries at Rocky Airport

YOU are at the airport and realised your mobile phone and/or tablet is going flat.

For Rockhampton Airport users, they will be in luck.

The Rockhampton Airport has taken a proactive step and installed two Chargebars for travellers to use to charge their phones and tablets during transit.

Rockahmpton Regional Council's Business Enterprise Committee Chair, Councillor Neil Fisher said the service provided by these Chargebars will improve the experience of transiting through our airport.

"The Rockhampton Airport is fast becoming a very modern facility and this recent addition is sure to be a hit," Cr Fisher said.

"The two Chargebars we've installed each have the capacity to charge eight different devices at a time with no consequence to charging speeds.

"They are free to use and can be used by 96% of phone handsets and tablets on the current market," he said.

One Chargebar has been installed at the front of the new Relay store and the second one is situated in the quiet seating area where the old Relay store used to be.

Users need to find the appropriate cable for their phone or tablet, plug their device in, and wait by the Chargebar as it charges (12 minutes on average).

Cr Fisher said he was most impressed with the device when trialling it today with his iPhone.

"These Chargebars are such a fantastic addition to our airport's facilities and I'm certain many will take advantage of this great new service," Cr Fisher said.

"Now nobody will have the issue of a dead battery when in transit," he said.
