Phone charging machine

This type of mobile charging machine is available at some of the libraries. Use by scanning your identification , the compartment (I presume one) will be unlock, connect to charger and close compartment. When you need to retrieve, just scan your identification again. Best of all, it's free of charge!

I have yet to try but if some day my handphone is on low battery, probably I will. (Eg. waiting for Little One while she is attending some library programmes .) 

Below is a list of libraries that has this type of machine. Will update the list whenever I knew of one.

  • Bishan 
  • Central (National Library Building - Basement)
  • Clementi
  • Library @ Chinatown
  • Lee Kong Chian Reference Library ( National Library Building - only available on level 5 and 7)
  • Jurong West
  • Pasir Ris (Lower level)
  • Queenstown
  • Sembawang ( it also has a charging station but in my opinion not as secure)
  • Toa Payoh 

Update 25th Jan 2016: 
I returned to Sembawang on 23rd Jan. It now has the charging machine. I think probably all the library has at least one. I had amended the above list to include Sembawang.

  1. That's pretty cool! I spent some time in our local emergency room after stupidly closing my finger in a car door. They had a place to charge phones but there was no way to ensure that someone didn't steal another's phone while it sat in the charger. I rather like this idea!
