Florida Residents Stay Connected in Hurricane Aftermath Thanks to POWER UP™
When disaster strikes, there are lots of things to worry about. As hurricane season gets into full swing, it’s not unusual to see long lines of people fueling up their cars or waiting to buy bottled water to get them through tough times. However, it’s easy to forget that being without power also means being unable to contact others when it matters most. This is where POWER UP™ can help.
Thankfully, Barcoding, Inc.’s premium charging technology experts at POWER UP have joined forces with WFTS and WPTV to bring Floridians who have been left without power in the wake of Hurricane Irma emergency mobile charging stations. Polaris Worldwide assisted them in transporting four of their charging tables from Baltimore to the two television stations in Tampa and West Palm Beach just hours before the storm hit.
Many Types of Devices Can be Charged at Once
Each of these charging tables is equipped with a portable power bank and can give up to 18 phones, laptops, tablets and other devices enough power to last for 10 to 12 hours. The tables boast three electric outlets, nine charging cables, and six USB ports, which means that people will be able to stay connected regardless of the device they are using.
This technology from POWER UP was first used in disaster relief during the floods that hit Houston in 2015. The company is currently building a fleet of charging trailers that are equipped with 150 charging ports. These solar-powered trailers will be used to help out in natural disasters.
POWER UP Co-founder Ryan Doak thanked the two TV stations for reaching out to them to set up this partnership and expressed his gratitude to Polaris Worldwide for helping to make this plan a reality.
As one of the top charging technology companies in the industry, POWER UP aims to connect events, facilities, and companies whose customers and guests need fully charged devices.
