ChargePort™ – Powering over 1,500 Charge-Friendly Hotels and Counting
Millions of travelers now charge phones and tablets with ease
SPARKS, NEVADA, USA (April 1, 2014) - The TeleAdapt ChargePort™ is taking the hotel industry by storm. This attractive, simple-to install mobile device charger can be found in over 1,500 hotels across North America. In celebration of hitting the 1,500 hotel mark, TeleAdapt is launching the ChargePort.com website, which features an interactive hotel map and hotel search function so power-hungry travelers can find charge-friendly hotels with ease.
“ChargePort has been a wildly successful product since the initial launch two years ago”, says Neil Betterton, VP of Global Product Development for TeleAdapt. “The ChargePort was an instant success because it was the first product to uniquely solve a very common hotel problem… never enough outlets and never where you need them. The Hampton and the Kimpton brands were instrumental in helping us launch the product into the market so quickly. Two years later we are proud to share that in addition to those pioneering brands we’ve helped over 1,500 hotel properties to flip a problem into a valuable guest amenity.”
ChargePort.com is a new TeleAdapt website designed exclusively to support the growing demand for the ChargePort product. The website is designed to make it easy for hoteliers to learn about and buy the product, and also as a tool for travelers to find charge-friendly hotels. “We have a long list of customers and new ones every day that are investing in making their properties charge-friendly for the guest,” says Betterton, “now we have a tool to showcase these outstanding properties to the travelling public.”
The ChargePort product allows hotels to place 2 AC outlets and two high-current USB charging ports at any desk or nightstand with ease. The installation is as simple as plugging it in and setting it down. The unit is available in a variety of finishes and mounting options.
