Amtrak Partners With MobileQubes to Solve the Portable Power Needs of Millions of Union Station Passengers

MobileQubes' First-Ever Self-Service Network of Untethered Mobile Charging Stations Makes It Fast and Easy for Passengers to Charge On-the-Go

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2015) - MobileQubes, the first-ever network of self-service stations providing portable battery rentals for mobile devices, launches its Chicago network this week in Amtrak Union Station. In response to commuter demands and after extensive due diligence, Amtrak partnered with MobileQubes to provide passengers with a convenient, affordable and portable power solution. Amtrak and Union Station join a growing nationwide network of MobileQubes locations in high traffic venues such as airports, convention centers and mass transportation hubs.

Amtrak carefully considered all the various charging and battery solutions to provide their loyal passengers with the solution that best matched their mobile lifestyle needs. Amtrak officials deployed MobileQubes because it does not require customers to stand tethered to a charging station, and instead supports an on-the-go lifestyle with an easy to use, affordable solution that is part of a nationwide network.

"Amtrak has made it possible for the millions of people seeking charging solutions at Union Station to maintain connectivity while remaining completely mobile," said MobileQubes CEO and co-founder Sean Carrigan. "And by plugging into the MobileQubes network, Union Station passengers are now supported by a nationwide network of fully charged battery locations. The days of being stranded on the train, in a meeting or at a sporting event with a dead mobile device are a thing of the past."

"Customers do not want to stand plugged into a charging station or spend their evening charging multiple battery packs -- they want a fast, simple, and affordable way to remain fully charged and on-the-go," continued Carrigan.

MobileQubes customers can rent a Qube for $4.99 for the first 24-hours and $.99 per additional one day period. Qubes are also available for purchase for $44.99.

MobileQubes is the first-ever self-service, fully automated network of kiosks that allow customers to rent & return compact battery "Qubes" and continue charging and using their devices on-the-go. MobileQubes kiosks can be found in airports, hotels, convention centers, mass transit hubs, college campuses and casinos -- keeping smartphone users connected and on the go.
