A company from the US is looking to roll out a solution that will cater for folks who might unexpectedly find themselves with devices running low on juice, where it will be known as the SafePlug 1200-P3 pay-per-use system that can work when installed into a regular power outlet. It will allow you to gain access with a prepaid plastic card or key fob, where you will then plug your depleted electronic device into it. These cards or fobs can be purchased from the front counter of the business or at kiosks, and will offer anywhere from 10 to 20 blocks of access time, where each one of which could be 20, 30, 45, or 60 minutes in duration. Once the device is unplugged, the P3 will turn itself off automatically. $1 will net you 20 minutes of charging time, with the outlet’s operating cost being estimated at 12 cents per kWh.
