For the first time today I used public transport after our most recent two week severe lock down. As each week passes and it seems like COVID is again under control, we are freed up by degrees.
As far as I can establish this is a free phone charging service. I've seen one at Flinders Street Station in the city and now there is one at South Yarra Station. It is easy to see there are multiple leads inside each cabinet to recharge your device. How many years ago did I hear about a universal plug for all devices?
Nevertheless, I think this is a great thing for young people who don't charge their devices overnight and run out of battery the next day, and if they are heavy users, they won't have a charging pack with them.
I've seen my phone battery get quite low after all day usage, but I have never run out of charge. Why is these charging stations necessary? Should we be piling on irresponsible young people who don't charge their phones overnight?
Conversation to Hippie Niece:
Aunty Andrew, my phone is flat.
Why did you not charge it last night?
I was using it and I forgot. Aunty Andrew, do you have a plug for my phone?
So you forgot your charging plug too? No we don't. You are an i person and we are Android. Never the twain shall meet.
I can't remember how, but she did find a way or a plug or something to charge her phone.
