The Importance of Charging Stations

 

Yes! That’s why thousands of people everyday are saying “My Cell Phone Died” (MyCellPhoneDied.com). ChargeTech is the solution to the low battery problem with products for all your guests, family and friends. Make sure you’re always charged and always ready.


 

You choose if you want to charge your customers. ChargeTech charging stations can be placed on display for free charging, behind a bar or counter and rented out on an as-needed basis or used in a coat check type situation. Whether you charge per charge or make it free, let’s face it, having a charged cell phone is PRICELESS!


 

It is important that business owners purchase enough charging stations so guests can comfortably wait for their phone to charge. ChargeTech charging stations are compact and beautifully designed so they can be placed throughout an entire venue. The average business purchases 4-10 charging stations for placement throughout the entire area. Let’s face it, shouldn’t free cell phone chargers be everywhere?

ChargeTech has been tested in extreme situations to provide continuous, valuable service. However, in the rare instance that your ChargeTech device is not functioning properly due to a possible manufacturer-defect issue, ChargeTech offers standard One (1) Year Limited Warranty for all products*, except gift orders, to cover all manufacturer defects for a standard one (1) year after product delivery date. Our One (1) Year Limited Warranty is only valid when the defective item is accompanied by a proof of purchase from ChargeTech or an Authorized ChargeTech Dealer.

Warranty Terms
ChargeTech’s warranty does not cover product failure, any defect or malfunction that is caused as a result of overuse, misuse or failure to follow operating instructions, tampering, abuse, normal wear and tear, or use with improper or faulty equipment. It also does not cover incidental damages. ChargeTech has sole discretion over deciding if a product will be repaired or replaced. ChargeTech does not offer advance replacements. If a replacement product is required immediately, then the customer will need to place a new order for the item. If a product is confirmed used or abused upon return and review/testing, the customer may be subject to labor and parts fee along with return shipment costs for replacements. Customized charging units considered to be factory defective will be repaired/replaced and custom artwork re-applied if damaged unit is returned within 6 months of purchase.

One (1) Year Limited Warranty Claims Process
To place a claim, proof of purchase from ChargeTech or an Authorized ChargeTech Dealer is required. After we have determined your item is still covered by our One (1) Year Limited Warranty, you may be required to send the purchased item to us. Upon receipt of the item, a decision will be made to repair or replace the item. ChargeTech will test the product according to the description of the request/problem listed in the Warranty Claims & Return form. If the confirmed issue is the same as the problem listed in the form, the product will be repaired. If the item is not repairable, it will be replaced with the same item. In the event that the item is no longer available, ChargeTech will replace it with an alternative item comparable in specs to the original item ordered. If the description of the problem is different from the problem listed on the form, or damaged from delivery, we will contact the customer. If the product has no identifiable problem, we reserve the right to charge for return delivery.

If you have reason to believe your item is factory-defective, you may return your item by following the Return Instructions below. Note that ChargeTech is not responsible for shipping costs associated with warranty returns.


 

We know you’ll love ChargeTech, but for any reason, returns on stock items are accepted within 30 days of delivery. Custom orders are not eligible for returns.

First Time Buyers

 

Take a look at the image below and compare it to your device. It will tell you which type of Apple charging cable you should purchase for your device.


 

Most of our charging stations feature replaceable tips and cables. It’s common that these charging tips break, especially when used in a public environment. New cell phones, tablets and other electronic devices are released all the time, and of course, that means that the charging tips are going to change. ChargeTech stays ahead of the curve and constantly revises our best selling chargers to include the latest tips for the most popular makes and models of devices.
However, should you ever need to purchase additional replacement tips, check out our Charging Stations Replacement Cables page. If your charging unit is being placed in a high-traffic or public area, we highly recommend purchasing our Extended Warranty.


 

Depending on your needs and clientele, you may be interested in our CK5 Locking Charging Kiosk or perhaps our most popular Floor Stand Charging Station – S9 or Wall Mount Charging Station – WM9 will do the job. More often than not, a simple non-kiosk charging station is the perfect solution!

 

The advantages of a non-kiosk charging station are: less maintenance, easy access, and better overall customer experience. While on the other hand, a secure locking charging solution may have less favorable advantages. First, the price per unit is much higher thus this may interfere with your ability to place multiple charging stations in your venue if you have budget constraints. Second, most people will keep their phone locked in the kiosk until it charges to 100% (especially if they paid money to charge) meaning other people are not able to charge their phone when they need to most. Third, there may be logistical issues with people forgetting their passwords, leaving their phone behind, or receiving the wrong phone. This means more maintenance is required to manage each charging station. These issues can be mitigated when the individual is personally responsible for keeping an eye on their phone.

We recommend reviewing your options carefully before making a purchase. And should you need any assistance in choosing the right solution for your home or business, please feel free to book a call with us or reach out to info@chargetech.com.


 

Have no fear, ChargeTech’s anti-theft hardware is here. ChargeTech offers multiple solutions to solve this problem. Be sure to check out the anti-theft solutions add-on offered on each product page. Additionally, we recommend placing enough charging stations in areas where guests and customers can comfortably sit or stand next to their device while it charges. This prevents theft and privacy issues. As for the customer, they never have to worry about their phone being stolen because it never leaves their side.

 

 

ChargeTech is continuously looking for solutions to help businesses and their patrons provide better service. We even work with furniture designers and engineers for custom charging station integrations. Book a call with one of our sales representatives to learn about what products might work best for your custom project.
