EE have announced that all customers will be offered a free Power Bar to ensure your phone is always fully charged.
The scheme is designed so you're never caught short with a flat battery. The great thing is, this isn't just a gimmick to attract new customers but also applies to existing customers.
This free portable phone charger is small, compact and can even be swapped for a fully charged Power Bar at any EE store if yours runs out of juice.
Considering it's free, the Power Bar is surely the best portable phone charger you can get!
If you're the kind of person that uses your phone a lot when you're out and about then this is a fantastic offer.
According to EE, almost 60% of UK smartphone users can't get through a full day on a single charge.
You will be able to pick up your free Power Bar in any EE store.
I've got the power!
The Power Bar has a capacity of 2,600mAh which will fully charge a typical smartphone. Of course the Power Bar itself is rechargeable and is good for around 500 charges.
When the Power Bar eventually dies, simply take it back to EE who will happily give you a new one as often as you like.
- A charging indicator that shows you how much charge is left
- A micro USB cable, making it a universal phone charger
- 4 hour recharge time
- A built-in LED torch
Will the Power Bar charge my iPhone?
Yes the Power Bar will charge your iPhone but you will need a USB to iPhone adaptor for it to work.
For iPhone's with a Lightning port you'll need this:
Or for older iPhone's with the old 30-pin connectors, you'll need this:
Of course the Power Bar isn't just for charging your phone or smartphone. It will also charge any device that you would normally charge via the USB port.
How do you get the EE Power Bar?
- If you're a mobile customer, text POWER to 365
- If you're a Broadband customer, text JOIN plus your EE landline number to 60005
You will be provided with a redemption code that you simply take along to your nearest EE store.
Although the Power Bar scheme is free, texts cost 35p which is a small price to pay considering the excellent deal you're getting.
The scheme is even offered to non-EE customers although this costs £20. In the long run, this is probably still cheaper than buying your own portable phone charger.
Pippa Dunn, the Chief Marketing Officer of EE said:
Almost everyone's experienced the frustration associated with running out of battery and it always seems to happen when you need your phone the most. With EE Power, we're trying to help by giving our customers a Power Bar that can simply be swapped for a fully charged one at any of our stores, at any time, for free.
