No longer works sadly
I loved AnkerBox (prior review below) but it no longer works. I have tried frustratingly for the past three time to rent when I NEED a battery and the app says network not available and the box won't spit out a battery. Very sad and frustrating to see a great product go by the wayside. This product could have succeeded had Anker invested in some marketing instead of hoping people spot them at a bar and try them.
This product is AWESOME. So slick...your phone is dying, you open this app and moments later a battery is ejected from the machine for you to use for free for 30 minutes. Desperate for a longer charge? $1.99. Easy. And you can return the battery to anywhere that has these things (they appear to be EVERYWHERE in Seattle). They are very smart too...without asking they know what kind of charger you need (lightning or micro usb). Highly recommended!
Great while traveling
For my use case this was probably perfect. So I was visiting Seattle and my battery was low. I was at a restaurant that had an AnkerBox. I thought it looked cool, cuz I'm from San Francisco and we see new tech like this a lot, and I realized it could solve my problem! So I gave it a try and was happy to get 30 free minutes!!! I was expecting to pay right away, so that was nice. Took only 3 minutes to figure it out and add my credit card. Then I could have enough battery to use Google Maps to be able to get back to my AirBnB! Thank god! & Love the ejecting device, so futuristic. Bring this to SF. :)
Stop with the Bluetooth popups
Great app, haven't had any problems with it besides the fact that it pops up requesting that you turn on your Bluetooth every 30 minutes or so. Had to turn off notifications which I actually liked having on when it alerts you to grab a charger when your phone is dying.
