EE giving away free portable smartphone chargers!

By  | 

UK mobile network EE has announced a new campaign which will see EE giving away a free portable smartphone charger to all its users.

The new campaign, dubbed EE Power, is open to all EE customers on a 30 day, 12, 18 or 24 month mobile or fixed line and broadband plan as well as pay as you go users who have been with the network for three months. Even non-EE customers can join EE Power for £20.

EE consumers can request for portable chargers via text message and can plug it in to their phones via micro USB. The best thing about the portable smartphone charger is that it can be charged up at home and can even be swapped for a fully charged Power Bar in any of EE’s stores at no additional charge.

Pippa Dunn, Chief Marketing Officer EE, said “Almost everyone’s experienced the frustration associated with running out of battery and it always seems to happen when you need your phone the most.

“With EE Power, we’re trying to help by giving our customers a Power Bar that can simply be swapped for a fully charged one at any of our stores, at any time, for free.”

To claim the free Power Bars, mobile users will need to text ‘POWER’ to 365 and broadband users must text ‘JOIN’ plus their landline number to 60005 when the scheme officially launches, in the coming weeks. The text message will cost a mere 35p. In return they will receive a promotional code, which they can redeem in store for the power bar. Each 2600mAh Power Bar typically gives one full smartphone charge per use.
