"R3 Rapid Recharge Units are an excellent alternative to walking around with a dead phone or MP3 player," said Mr. Oleg Krichevsky, founder and CEO of Axxium Canada. "Even more, every R3 unit is equipped with a color monitor that is ideal for local or national advertising. While consumers are recharging their devices, they're watching the video advertising that rotates for our ad network clientele."

R3 Recharging units can simultaneously recharge 10, 18 or 24 electronic devices, depending on the size of the unit placed. Because R3 units are equipped with color monitors, they offer new venues for advertising, promotion and public service announcements. Ting Shi of Business 2.0 noted that these kiosks not only recharge batteries but also create "new opportunities for...entrepreneurs."
