TeleAdapt Unleashes More Power to Hotels

New Universal Mobile Device Charging Station is Compatible With More Than 2,000 Devices,
a Convenient Amenity for Guests That Forget Their Charging Cables

LONDON, UK (December 10, 2009) – It’s happened to us all: get on the road only to realize you forgot your cell phone charger. With cell phones increasingly doubling as our lifelines, forgetting a charging cable can make one’s heart sink, especially when you are on an extended trip. Hotels across the globe are encountering frustrated guests who are desperate to re-charge and re-connect. TeleAdapt, the global leader in hotel connectivity products, is pleased to announce an affordable, universal charging solution for hotels - the ChargeHub™

Compatible with More Than 2,000 Mobile Devices
ChargeHub is a compact, mobile device charging station designed specifically for the hospitality industry. It comes equipped with 12 different device connectors, making ChargeHub compatible with most major cell phone brands used around the world. A female USB port extends the charging convenience to guests who bring their own cable, for charging Bluetooth® headsets, portable game consoles, and hundreds more USB powered devices.

“Convenient, universal power is and always will be a concern for hotels and their guests,” says Gordon Brown, TeleAdapt founder and CEO. “A power outlet is just not enough when travellers forget their charging cables. With millions of guests checking in with cell phones that have cable requirements unique to each country, a universal charger like ChargeHub is the only feasible solution to service their charging needs.”

Designed Specifically for Hospitality
ChargeHub has been designed to address the specific challenges hotels face when catering to a global audience. It provides the power, it provides the cable and it’s designed to fit within any room configuration.

ChargeHub’s design works well in a guestroom environment or installed in the business center and meeting room space. Four screw holes allow the unit to be secured in place anywhere in the room. Choose to install ChargeHub on a desktop, on the side of a desk, or built into a drawer for a more hidden application. An instructional decal is affixed to the top to conceal the screws and create a seamless look.

“TeleAdapt prides itself in its keen sense in identifying the complications inherent in hotel technology,” continues Brown. “Our products offer the convenience, affordability, flexibility, and ease of installation that make sense for hoteliers and guests alike. That’s why we chose ChargeHub as the right solution for this real, everyday problem.”

For over 17 years, TeleAdapt has been developing hotel technology products designed to improve guest satisfaction during every hotel stay, including easier connections to the Internet, reliable Wi-Fi access, and, with ChargeHub, convenient universal power.
