FuelRod Adds New Airports, Has More On The Way

FuelRod has added two new airports to its roster and will add two more in the coming months.

The company’s SwapBox kiosks are now at Cleveland-Hopkins International (CLE) and Pittsburgh International (PIT). Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall (BWI) and Boston Logan International (BOS) will follow suit in the near future.

“When we first heard of the FuelRod ‘Power as a Service’ program, we had to take a look,” says Jaime Daly, CEO of Airmall USA, which operates all or part of the concessions programs at each of those four airports. “We’re all about being a game-changer in passenger experience. The FuelRod automated kiosks are a fun and convenient way to keep travelers’ mobile devices charged. Not being chained to an electrical outlet gives them the freedom to experience all the great food and retail services these airports offer. This is a win-win.”

The kiosks allow travelers to buy the FuelRod charging kits, which can be used Android and Apple devices. FuelRods can deliver around eight hours of talk time for smartphones and four hours of usage for tablets. When a charger is depleted, passengers can simply use the kiosks’ SwapBoxes to exchange it for a fresh, full one for free.

“Working with Airmall USA to incorporate our FuelRod program at these airports has been a great experience,” says Joe Yeagley, co-founder of FuelRod. “They are true professionals with a mission to provide the best product and service for travelers in some of the world’s best airports. We’re on track to deploy our FuelRod ‘Power as a Service’ in major airports across the U.S. and our partnership with Airmall has provided us with a significant boost.”

The FuelRods can be purchased for $20 with free unlimited exchanges.
