About A Chat with Portaplug
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Other similar services let you charge your phone at a station or a locker, which requires you to be at a given spot for a long time. It also makes using your phone very inconvenient if not impossible, while it's charging. With Portaplug you enjoy full mobility and privacy.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Being stuck in the city with a dead phone is almost a phobia for many people. We sought out to create a solution that offers full mobility and convenience to busy people. We were inspired by the Citibike model of a convenient network of pick up and drop off points. That's how Portalplug was born.
What do you love most about your job?
We get the most satisfaction from the fact that we offer the best and most convenient solution to people who depend on their phones and other mobile devices in their daily routines.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
A customer once told us that Portaplug is a life saver! He was running late to a party and needed to stay in touch with many friends. His phone was running low on battery. Fortunately, a Portaplug location was nearby. It took him less than a minute to rent a charger and he could stop worrying.
