Mobile users in London will be able to charge their phones from a series of kiosks.
According to the BBC, kiosk manufacturer Nearplay Systems has created the "Charge Me" booths for recharging mobile phones and handheld computers.
For 50p the booths will provide people with 20 to 25 minutes of charge-time and take five minutes to top up phones. £1 will provide around 45 minutes of talk-time and take 10 minutes to charge.
A pilot of the kiosks will start in a variety of public locations around London, including Victoria and Waterloo stations and Heathrow Airport.
Up to 12 people can recharge their mobile devices simultaneously and the booth supports all common models by Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, Siemens, Sony, Samsung and Palm.
If the kiosks are a success, Charge Me is hoping to introduce advertising to the booths.
