Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) has become the latest North American airport to add FuelRod’s automated SwapBox kiosks, bringing three to select locations within the airport.

Using the SwapBox, passengers at AVL can now simply purchase a FuelRod mobile charging kit from the kiosk, charge up their Apple or Android devices with the fully charged FuelRod and not have to worry about keeping their devices charged on-the-go.

“As AVL continues to grow, we are pleased to find more passenger amenities to make the travel experience the best it can be,” says Lew Bleiweis, executive director of the Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority.  “Keeping a full charge on a phone tops the list for many travelers, so we are excited to welcome FuelRod to the airport.”

Developed by San Diego-based Tricopian, the FuelRod Kits are already in other North Carolina locations, including Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) and Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT), enabling travelers to stay mobile while they charge their phones and help the environment by keeping batteries out of landfills.
