FuelRod

If you've been traveling recently, you may have seen a FuelRod kiosk at the airport. These dispense reusable, portable charging units that come fully charged. FuelRods can deliver up to 8 hours of talk time on a smartphone and 4 hours of internet browsing on a tablet on a single charge.

When your FuelRod runs out of battery life, you can just swap it for a new one at any FuelRod SwapBox location for free. FuelRod offers unlimited swaps, so you can get a fully charged unit any time you need it. You can also charge it yourself using any USB adapter and a standard wall outlet.

FuelRod has a single Type-A USB port on it, and the initial purchase comes with a 6" USB Type-A to Micro-USB cable, which can charge most Android phones. It also comes with Apple 30-pin and Lightning adapters.

FuelRod costs $20, and you can learn more and find FuelRod locations at fuel-rod.com.
