There is nothing worse than being out for long periods, away from your phone charger and have your phone battery run low. This is exponentially more annoying when it happens while you are at a Disney World park, where your phone plays a big role in your overall experience. Whether you are looking to snap the perfect Instagram photo, managing your fast passes, mobile ordering your lunch, or whatever, you need to be sure your mobile device is reliable and charged. Enter Disney World FuelRod Portable Phone Chargers. Here is what you need to know about them.
What are FuelRods?
FuelRods are portable phone charging tools that are sold via kiosk vending machines throughout the Disney World parks. They provide up to 8 hours of voice calling time or 4 hours of tablet use out of the package and are rechargeable. They are compatible with virtually any Apple or Android mobile device. To ensure compatibility, FuelRods come in small kits that include the following:
- A fully charged battery
- A micro USB to USB cable (for Android)
- A 30-pin to USB cable (for older iPhones and iPads)
- A Lightening to USB cable (newer Apple devices)
How much do FuelRods cost?
At Disney World, FuelRods cost $30 at the various kiosks. Here is the interesting part- once you’ve purchased a FuelRod, you can continuously exchange the used batteries at the kiosks for new ones if you are unable or unwilling to recharge it. Each kiosk is equipped with the battery-swapping feature and there are kiosks in more spots than just Disney World. They have them at Disneyland Resort, as well as countless other locations across the globe. You can find a FuelRod kiosk location near you here.
