App Guide

We’re using our iOS devices more and more, and the batteries are not the longest lasting. For me, I charge my iPhone at least once a day, and when travelling interstate I need to check my emails every hour, but before I’m about to board the flight home, my iPhone battery is draining fast and I get the flashing percentage message on my screen.

Chargebar is a great battery-saving invention that allows you to quickly power up your iDevice battery in public places, such as airports. Better still, now the contraption comes with an app to help you locate one on the go.

Chargebar for iOS is a useful tool to access and locate a charge unit, in a number of locations, searching under venue names or using the map option that displays nearby locations with Chargebar facilities.

If you’re a business a Chargebar station is a great investment, as it’s a way to get people through the doors and stay while they are waiting to charge their device. For more information on how to get a unit installed go to

Obviously the app won’t help if your battery is already dead and you can’t switch your iPhone on to use the app to search.

Grab this free app, and spread the word to get as many of these stations installed around Australia!
