Chargello

Sometimes running out of battery is just not an option. Carrying power banks can be annoying, and finding an outlet in public places is nearly impossible. Frustrated by this, two young entrepreneurs created Chargello, a company focused on solving the low-battery problem in public places (restaurants, hotels, airports, etc.) via their proprietary portable batteries. These batteries not only charge phones but also serve as an innovative advertising platform. With print advertising on the surface of the batteries and embedded technology, Chargello delivers targeted content and redirects users to ads and apps, while tracking interaction data (views, clicks, conversions). Through various partnerships, users can call a car, leave a review for the venue, claim instant offers, or even pay the check right from the battery.
