Mobile device public charging stations secured with Octagon locks.

Camlock Systems : 16 November, 2007  (Application Story)
Hig security octagon locking system from Camlock used on innovative public charging stations for equipment such as mobile phones and media players providing users with peace of mind whilst their possessions are left unattended.
ChargeBox is a truly innovative piece of equipment that enables users to recharge devices such as mobile phones, portable media players (Ipods), PDAs and handheld games consoles while these are in a safe locker. When users are away from home, they can leave their device charging in the knowledge it is secure and then collect it at their convenience.

ChargeBoxes can be found in locations such as hotels, gyms, railway stations, airports, hospitals, Internet cafes and on the high street. The cost to use a ChargeBox can be paid either with a £1 coin or by a SMS text, which costs £1.50.

The design of ChargeBox uses 'Octagon' high security locks made by Camlock Systems. 'Octagon' products are constructed for maximum reliability and durability and feature a unique, patented design to enhance security. Only patented locks and keys can prevent unauthorized duplicate keys being cut in high street key cutting outlets. Also, the patents enable Camlock to restrict the issue of duplicate keys for the Octagon locks fitted to ChargeBox machines solely to the proprietors. In addition, most ChargeBoxes are watched over by staff at the location and many are also monitored by CCTV cameras.

Commenting on the choice of Camlock's Octagon locks, Managing Director of ChargeBox Ian Hobson said: "Our research shows that people are becoming more and more dependent on mobile devices and running out of battery power when on the move is a major inconvenience. We place great importance on keeping these devices secure while in the Chargebox so after trying other brands of locks, we now specify Camlock's Octagon to protect all our machines."
