As a gift to the nation for SG50, Singapore Power is setting up an island wide network of charging stations for Singaporeans to charge their mobile devices at no cost.
The 200 charging stations will be rolled out progressively in high-traffic locations across the island. Singapore Power is working with partners such as SingHealth’s group of public healthcare institutions, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, tertiary institutions such as the National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), and Singapore Polytechnic; National Library Board and NTUC FairPrice supermarkets.
All the charging stations are expected to be in place by December 2015.
To charge your device, simply scan the barcode of your personal identification card and create a unique 4 digit personal identification number (PIN) before plugging your device. To retrieve your device, just repeat the two-step authentication process.
Each charging station is equipped with 10 individual slots, which can each fit a mobile phone or tablet device. Each charging slot has multiple charging tips which will fit most mobile phones and tablets on the market, as well as a USB port to cater to other devices.
