CNG Charging Station for Hoboken Bars?

Would Hoboken Bars benefit from CNG Charging Stations?

CNG Charging Station in Hoboken NJHoboken411 reader Jennifer shared this video with us this afternoon, a CNG Charging Station – which is all about charging your cell phone at a bar or restaurant.

“Why with all of the bars/restaurants in Hoboken, have I not seen these! What a great thing for Hoboken watering holes to have for their customers!!!! It’s such an obvious convenience for patrons. Wish I thought of it!”

As you can see in the video – it’s a “pay for charge” station, with every known wire dangling from it. My guess is it’s probably like $5 for like 10 minutes of charge.

I suppose if you were in a bind, getting 5-10% of charge back might be worth it. Otherwise, you’d be better off being prepared with your own spare USB battery pack.

I wonder how “idiot proof” these kiosks are. I can see some tool drunk on Red Bull & Vodkas ripping all the wires out and smashing the LCD brainwashing advertising screen.

This thing may be a fad that will only be short-lived – because in a couple years, all phones will have wireless charge capability.

Would you like to see the CNG Charging Station in Hoboken?

I think it’s a good business idea because of the rising number of people who live & breathe through their phones. Would never need it myself, though.

What I would put money in is a site cell phone jammer! 😆

That commercial looks like it was shot at Scotland Yard.

Pretty certain the Wicked Wolf already has one of these installed. Never actually have seen someone using them, but in theory they make sense.

The phrase is “COULDN’T care less…” and I couldn’t. Great way for the quick-of-hand to pick up a cheap Android phone, though. (Forget iPhones – their new lockout software makes them useless to resell now.)

How do you know they’re not stealing personal info off the phones? No thanks.
