FuelRod Portable Chargers Now Available At Penn State

Whether it was outside of Beaver Stadium, in class, or simply trying to get homework done in a place without an outlet, everyone’s had their device die on them at one point or another. That problem might be solved now that Penn State has placed portable charging kiosks around campus, the university announced Thursday.

FuelRod has installed kiosks in the HUB, common areas in East, South, North, and Pollock halls, and outside of the gates at Beaver Stadium. A map of each location is also available to make things a bit easier.

Each charging port comes with the charger itself, as well as the adapter for your specific device. They can be recharged in any wall outlet or swapped out for a new, fully charged rod at any kiosk.

“Our faculty continue to innovate in the classroom with mobile device technology,” said Jennifer Sparrow, deputy chief information officer for Penn State IT. “So, we must support that teaching and learning initiative by providing a resource that ensures phones and tablets are ready to use.”

FuelRod offers two options for subscriptions. The first is $20 and comes with 12 swaps, while the other is $25 and gets you six months of unlimited swaps at any kiosk.

For the all-nighters spent studying or even camping out for College GameDay this weekend, FuelRod may just be the saving grace for both you and your devices.
