goCharge at Global Citizen Festival – cell phone charging stations

goCharge made a big splash at the Global Citizen Festival this weekend which took place in New York City’s iconic Central Park and featured artists Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, and Alesia Cara. We know we had a blast, and judging from some of the quotes we got from festival goers, we’re happy to have kept everyone charged up and connected so they could have a blast, too!

Only some of the quotes from happy smart phone owners:

“We were so happy to find these amazing cell phone charging stations! These need to be everywhere.” — Alyssa A.

“Why don’t they have these on every street corner? With these awesome lockers, I know I can leave my phone safe and secure while charging!” — Derek N.

“My phone was about to die when my friend told me she had spotted cell phone charging stations. I charged up while drinking a beer waiting for the next performer to go on!” — Michael S.

It’s not goCharge’s first rodeo when it comes to music festivals and outdoor events. goCharge helps hundreds of thousands of people stay charged and connected to friends, loved ones, and family members at hundreds of events throughout the nation and the world. Being out doors should never mean being out of luck with your smartphone, and with the boom in cell phone charging stations, we’re lucky it is becoming a thing of the past!

From suitcases with built in GPS’s to robot furniture, furniture that serves as just furniture is becoming a thing of the past. goCharge offers top class charging tables that serve as functional furniture: grab a beer with friends, socialize around the table (low, medium, or high), and charge your phone all at the same time. When you think about, you wonder, “why doesn’t every table have a charging port?!”

In 2012, MLB approached goCharge with a vision. Within a few short months, goCharge designed and deployed The MLB Table into 19 stadiums around the nation. Today, goCharge is operational in 27 of the 30 ballparks, a definite home-run! Learn more about Custom Charging Tables >>

The Hi-Top & The Coffee Table are the newest products released by goCharge. With all the success of the MLB Table, goCharge wanted to create a smaller table for use in restaurants, bars, universities, retail stores, company campuses, and lounging areas of all sorts. These round glass top tables with spill-proof edges also have several locations for branding and are built to last. Learn more >>

goCharge at Ultra Music Festival

By | Business Intelligence, Cell Phone Charging, Lifestyle, Mobile Charging Kiosk, Music, Music Festivals, Outdoor Events

Ultra Music Festival was a huge success this past weekend with headliners like Justice, Underworld, Ice Cube, and Major Lazer. Not only was the music a hit, but the festival earned its “Ultra – nice” nickname this year in particular because arrests and medical calls plummeted this year despite attracting 150,000 young dancers and partiers into the Miami area. Moreover, festival goers could always charge up their phones and stay connected thanks to goCharge and T-Mobile.

5 reasons outdoor music festivals need more cell phone charging stations

One of the biggest obstacles music festivals face today is power supply. Even if it is an urban music festival (as opposed to the more common rural, out-in-the-middle-of-nowehere festival) finding outlets and ample power supplies for the endless amount of demand is always an issue. From lighting to instruments to electronic displays to food vendors, power supply, and lots of it, is vital at outdoor music festivals. You’ll find goCharge Cell Phone Charging Stations at most of the major music festivals around the country, such as Bonnaroo, Coachella, SxSW and Governor’s Ball.

Following are 5 reasons outdoor music festivals can increase their ROI and improve user experience by renting cell phone charging stations.

    1. Keep your festival goers happy and care-free by providing several charging stations in high traffic areas: in close proximity to stages, camping areas, dining areas, and bathrooms. The more festival goers are charging up at designated mobile device charging stations, the more power staff and bands have to use at their disposal.
    2. With goCharge’s new Solar System, you can be completely cord-free this year. The SolarSystem is powered entirely by the sun, allowing you to place it anywhere and everywhere. There are no location limitations with the SolarSystem — no long or dangerous cords to worry about, and you can save money on electricity costs.

  1. Cell phone charging stations are an important marketing tool for music festivals. Social media has a way of giving people access to your world without physically being there. The more fans, bands, and staff take photos and share them with the world, the more word gets out about your amazing event, the more sales you’ll have next year. Without power, there is no social media. Keep everyone charged up and having fun by providing cell phone charging stations.
  2. Avoid long lines for outlets, frustrating dead cellphone situations, and reduce your electricity costs by making sure you have ample mobile charging stations. goCharge’s locker cell phone charging stations allow people to leave their phones safely and securely while it charges up — no time is wasted. “It will only improve the whole experience,” says David Walke, CEO of goCharge. “Everybody wants to communicate with friends and family, take photos and videos, and post on social media. That’s all useless with a dead cell phone. Our Solar System is perfect for festivals since it’s powered completely by the sun.”

  3. Keep your attendees on the grounds. A dead cell phone is a great reason to back to your car to charge it. Most people prefer not to carry a bag during festivals – and if all outlets are unavailable, or they don’t have their chargers, attendees will have to make a long trek back where their car is parked. You lose their potential buying activity if they leave. If there are cell phone charging stations, they’ll charge up and continue to enjoy the festival.
