Charging Cell / Mobile phone charger

The cell shape charging bin uses sharing economy as the concept. It shows the percentage of charging and the estimated remaining time when the charge will reach 100%. Thus, users can make good use of time while they are in the department store or other public space. The charging bin is rented by a card sensing system. The same card is used to open the bin door at the end of each use. The charging compartment is in modular design, so the number could be customized to meet various wall layouts, and create unlimited possibilities and flexible combinations.
