EE Power enables customers to swap out portable chargers in-store

As previously covered, the UK mobile operator will offer the EE Power Bar for free to existing contract (both mobile and broadband) holders. Unlimited swaps in-store make it so you'll never run out of power when out and about – simply walk into the nearest EE store and swap out a fully charged Power Bar for free.

So, how do you get one? You'll need to text "POWER" to 365 to receive a promotional code. Those of you who are only broadband customers, the instructions differ slightly. You'll need to text "JOIN" and your EE landline number to 60005. These codes can be used to redeem your 2,600mAh Power Bar from EE.

See the EE website (opens in new tab) for more details.

  • Wow! Someone in the states needs to copy this one. Sent via carrier duck. They were out of pigeons
  • US Cellular did something similar a few years ago, but instead of a portable charger, they would trade out the phone's battery.
  • Ten minutes to swap.

  • Just picked mine up, charging it up now! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Got mine too. There are big queues in every store I've walked past today. You can charge them yourself or simply swap up in an EE store. They also have an led torch included. Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's pretty neat, also a creative way to get people back into the stores.
  • This is the reason I really like my phone having a removable/replaceable battery design
  • EE did this at Glastonbury festival last year. No more waiting for space in the charging tent, if you can't spend a few days away from your phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Got mine too :) but there were no ques at the store I went to. Must admit they didn't have many left in the dispenser unless they have a lot in the back. Bit scared of charging it while it's in my pocket or bag as my phone gets quite hot :/ Posted via Android Central App
