Beginning today, you can now purchase a fuel rod throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks, Disney Springs, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. This fuel rod can be purchased and used to charge your phone while visiting the parks.
To purchase, you will visit the FuelRod kiosks. These dispense portable charging batteries are $30.00 each and includes:
- A portable charging battery
- 6″ USB Type A to micro-USB cable (for most Android devices)
- One Apple 30-pin to USB cable
- One Apple Lightning to USB cable
This charger is not a rental, but a purchase of the item which can be exchanged in any of the kiosks located as follows:
- Magic Kingdom
- Tomorrowland Light and Power Co.
- Big Top Souvenirs
- Pecos Bill’s
- Curtain Call Collectibles
- Disney Traders
- Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Celebrity 5 & 10
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom
- Island Mercantile
- Disney Springs
- Marketplace Disney Photo Imaging
- ESPN Wide World of Sports
- ESPN Clubhouse Shop
This will allow guests the opportunity to keep a fully charged phone while in the parks, trip after trip! According to the Fuel Rod website, the charge will deliver up to 8 hours of talk time on your phone or nearly 4 hours on a tablet.
If you are instead interested in making a purchase of a phone charger that will recharge your phone multiples times without needing to revisit a kiosk, there are many available here. Here is one that is $30, sold by Amazon with a 16,100 mAh battery:
According to the listing, this will charge an iPhone 6s over 9 times to a full charge! Whatever your thoughts, both will help you get more out of your phone!
