FuelRod Mobile Charger Kiosks Arrive at McCarran International Airport Las Vegas

LAS Travelers No Longer Have to Roll the Dice to Keep Their Smartphones Charged

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 2, 2016) - Tricopian, LLC, a San Diego, California-based developer of the innovative FuelRod mobile device charger, announces that its FuelRod "SwapBox™" kiosks are now available at McCarran International Airport. Las Vegas travelers can now take advantage of all of the fun activities the airport offers, without the worry of having to find an available electrical outlet to keep their mobile devices charged.

FuelRod's kiosks are conveniently located throughout McCarran Airport and can be found in Terminal 1 near Gate C21, Terminal 3 by Gate E10, and in all four food court areas of the D Concourse. FuelRod's self-serve "SwapBox" provides travelers with ready-to-use, grab-and-go mobile device chargers that eliminate the need for charging at the airport's electrical outlets. SwapBox kiosks are also available for patrons of The CLUB at LAS located in the D Concourse and in Terminal 3.

Instead of searching for an electrical outlet or stationary charging station, mobile device users can purchase a FuelRod charging kit complete with cables and adaptors at the FuelRod kiosks to fuel up their mobile device. The rechargeable FuelRods are small portable chargers that deliver up to eight hours of talk time for an Apple® or Android™ smartphone or nearly four hours of usage for a tablet. Priced at just $20 each with free unlimited exchanges, each FuelRod kit includes connectors for both Android and Apple-based devices. Once used, the FuelRod module can be recharged using any standard USB outlet or it can be quickly exchanged at any FuelRod SwapBox kiosk for a fresh, fully fueled, ready-to-use charger.

"The traveler experience here at McCarran International Airport is like no other in the United States. There is so much to do and experience including shopping, dining and gaming while waiting for flights," said Scott Kichline, Assistant Director of Aviation. "The portable chargers at the FuelRod kiosks are a great way to free passengers from the time and stress of recharging their smart devices. We've introduced a number of initiatives to make charging easier for travelers. The FuelRod 'Power as a Service' airport program is a novel idea and one we're excited to embrace because it's the first to give travelers that freedom to explore."

Tricopian co-founder, Joe Yeagley agrees: "We're very excited to add McCarran International Airport Las Vegas to our list of major airports who are offering our FuelRod mobile charging service to their customers. Our 'Power as a Service' airport program continues to gain momentum across the nation as more and more users discover the convenience of 'swapping' an empty FuelRod for a fully charged one."

Travelers can find the FuelRod SwapBox kiosks at a growing number of airports in the United States and Europe. FuelRod chargers can also be purchased online at www.fuel-rod.com. FuelRod can also be found on Twitter @FuelRodPower and on Facebook at FuelRodPower.
