McDonalds will allow customers in 50 of its restaurants in the UK to charge their phones wirelessly from now on.
A deal with Aircharge means that consumers will be able to forget their battery woes while tucking into their McChicken burgers.
The fast food giant is installing about 600 charging points in their restaurants in and around London, taking a leaf out of US companies where QI charging are getting increasingly popular. Outlets like Tea Leaf and The Coffee Bean state-side already offer free phone charging for their customers.
So popular has the service proved to be that McDonalds, in a blog post said, “Customers were clamoring to access the Qi wireless charging service, prompting many to wait up to 30 minutes so they could.”
Designed to be wipe-clean and water resistant- handy for ketchup disasters, the charging mats are a god-sent for owners of 70-odd QI-enabled handsets in need of a quick quice-up.
