The CharLi can charge up to five mobile devices at any one time

Designed by Italian manufacturer Livio Enterprises, the CharLi is a rechargeable power station that allows multiple charging of mobile devices at any one time, helping to deliver customer loyalty and value.

Operators will need to dock the CharLi in its own charging station for six to eight hours before being ready to deliver up to 50 mobile phone and camera recharges itself.

The CharLi features five retractable cables offering connection to the most popular devices available, as well as a USB connector, although cable adaptors can be easily substituted.

To avoid overuse and to save energy, the CharLi automatically discontinues its power supply to devices that are fully charged.

Operators using the CharLi will be provided with window POS and online promotional material.
