Pubs in Sydney with Android Charging Stations

Pubs in Sydney with Android Charging Stations

It just seems aweful when suddenly in a middle of an important conversation you hear the “beep” sound from your android or any mobile giving you the emergency reminder that your phone is running out of battery. You rush to collect your charger and plug in to the nearest point available and have a sigh of relief.

You are quite aware that your mobile is of no use without a battery. If you are at home well and good to charge quickly but when you are somewhere outside travelling or sitting and enjoying at a pub you look perplexed as where to charge your phone. Though there are many charge spots available at airports, shopping malls, or even in some streets but what about the Pubs in Sydney? Do they allow charging your android phone? Let us discuss here some of these questions and  see which pubs in Sydney allow to charge your phone.

It is very silly to say that Pubs don’t have charging spots in their campus. All pubs have chargers for mobile phones though not for customers but obviously for their staff. Right? It depends on the Pub Manager and staff as to allow their customers to charge their phone or not. As you know some are polite and some are rude. So some allow to charge and some refuse.

There might have following reasons for their refusal:

  • They have to pay bills for electricity
  • They want that people socialise at bar rather than hanging on phone
  • They assume that people should have enough battery already in their mobiles
  • Maybe they think cords dangling around are a hazard and inconvenience to public
  • They do not wish to take responsibility for lost or forgotten phones
  • They doubt and believe their chargers might be stolen by people.
  • Lastly they are there to run their business and not to attending every minute or two to deal with people asking for their phone.

So that means none of the pubs allow to charge? No that is also not true. As the technology is advancing faster there are devices to cope with this situation too. Many pubs now have to believe that drinkers won’t leave so quickly if they charge their phones and this is profitable to their business as the customer might order more food and drinks at pubs. (their waiting time)

Therefore many pubs have set up a phone charging station so that customers can make sure their phones are topped up.

With Discgo charger device pubs have accomplished to get them installed as a utility tool for their customers.

Discgo Charger

The Discgo Charger is the newest innovation for phone charging, keeping you portable while you’re out. Coffs Harbour was one of the first places out of Sydney to sign on for these innovative pieces of tech.

The Discgo from Puck Charger Systems, provides a truly mobile charger device, delivering connectivity, convenience and a continuation of service. It’s a charging system that’s designed for cafes, restaurants, venues and bars, gyms, shopping centres and cinemas allowing customers and patrons to move about freely, while giving their phone a much-needed charge.

Thus Pubs have been forced to find a way to keep the customer in their bar for longer.

Here are the following pubs in Sydney who have this tech charger installed in  their venues

As everyone wants to keep things interactive these days these mobile chargers have taken their place in pubs too. The Discogo charger can handle two phones at a time so start putting your phone up on time if you are at any of the above pubs and wish to charge your phone first.

There is also another device called Clipp. Major pub operator Australian Leisure & Hospitality (ALH) Group has signed up to use Clipp.  Clipp interacts with certain POS systems so customers can enter their credit card details to open a tab, and then show the tab number on their phone to the bar staff when ordering. The tab can be closed by the customer or the bar at any time, triggering the credit card transaction and emailing a receipt to the customer. The app is available at no charge for iOS and Android.

This also has led to more pubs and bars all over Australia becoming aware of just how much easier it  is for them to accept payments through a smartphone and run a business more efficiently as the pub and bar staff need not spend their time collecting money for charging the phone.

So next time you visit a pub in Sydney it is your choice to use  the DiscGo Charger pub  which allows you to charge your phone without being tied to a charging station and use this free-to-use device and save the hassle of sitting next a power socket. Or do you still feel to go to  Charge Bar chargers around the place where it could get taken or you wish to carry your charger around when on move. Solution is yours!
