Samsung mobile charging stations at JFK


I’ve always considered the airport to be a tricky place to use gadgets. On the one hand, watching a movie or browsing the Internet is a great way to pass away the time before take-off (which, if you’re anything like my father, is three hours). On the other hand, playing with something so sleek and shiny could invite unwanted attention from unsavory travelers, distract you from watching your belongings, and drain your battery before a long cross-country or international flight.

You’re on your own for the first two, but the last problem is about to be solved by Samsung. As part of its tenth anniversary of U.S. operations, the company will be installing more than 50 mobile charging stations throughout JFK International Airport by the end of the month. Each station will include four electrical outlets for anyone to use for free. Assuming that everyone is happy with free electricity, bus and train terminals could be in line for future installations.

I’ve seen single electrical outlets at airports before, so I hope these mobile charging stations are more exciting than four outlets stuck onto a pillar near the floor.
