LaLiT London Hotel Tower Bridge Launches Wireless Charging
A luxury hotel in London, The LaLit at Tower Bridge has opted to install the latest development in wireless charging. It provides guests with convenient, ultra-modern charging facilities which will enhance their experience.
LaLiT London, located in the heart of London near Tower Bridge, has chosen to bring in CHARGit’s wireless charging capabilities. It has chosen to do so as it looks to offer an additional luxury service to its guests. They feel that it will differentiate it from its rivals.
The Wireless Charging Technology
CHARGit allows for multiple devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops to charge simultaneously through a surface. Thus we negate the need for plug cables which offers ease of use for consumers and a new service offering for businesses.
The technology has already been installed in a number of communal areas within LaLiT London Hotel. They now have plans underway to install it in all of the hotel suites.
What do the LaLit London Hotel Staff Think?
Tiago Stattmiller of LaLiT London said: “As a luxury hotel in the heart of London we want to be able to offer our guests the very best experience. This applies to the entirety of our offering; the customer service, the food, the décor. We aim to be the very height in luxury. Implementing cutting-edge technology such as CHARGit within our hotel allows us to differentiate ourselves. It sets us apart in what is a very competitive market.”
Tiago added: “With CHARGit’s wireless charging technology being a relatively new concept, we know it will be something our guests will recognise and appreciate. The ease of use is a key part of what it has to offer. We want our guests to have an enjoyable, relaxing and stress-free stay. We are particularly attractive to international travellers so the fact that CHARGit removes the need for travel plug adaptors is another key benefit.”
How Does It Work?
CHARGit’s technology works by fitting a unit under a table or counter surface to create a charging zone, known as a CHARGzone. This zone can then charge multiple devices at once, simply by placing them within it. Compatible devices need only be placed within the CHARGzone to charge, while non-compatible devices can have a CHARGkey added. This provides them with the same function. No precise alignment is needed for charging to begin.
The fitted unit, known as a CHARGhub, is a ‘through surface transmitter’. It can be installed into the bottom of any non-metallic surface (a wooden table or counter for example). There is no need for core-drilling, which can potentially damage aesthetics/décor, with the unit only needing to be screwed in place.
For devices that don’t have wireless charging capability already installed, a CHARGkey is necessary. This key acts in a similar fashion to a key fob. Having a CHARGkey plugged into a smartphone, tablet or laptop’s USB/charging port allows it to charge wirelessly.
Where has the Hotel Installed CHARGzones So Far?
The LaLiT London Hotel has installed CHARGzones at its reception desks and in two meeting rooms. Further installaton areas include its headmasters lounge and teachers lounges, the restaurant and also in the spa and gym. Plans are in place to roll out CHARGzone’s in all of the hotel’s suites.
Hayley Freedman, Director of CHARGit said: “The great thing about wireless charging technology in its present state is that it offers something new. Most guests checking into LaLiT London won’t have encountered it before. It will be a new experience for them thus making their stay more memorable.”
She added: “LaLiT London is currently ahead of the curve, but it won’t be long until wireless charging becomes a standard offering across the full spectrum of businesses and venues. LaLiT will then be in the advantageous position of already having the infrastructure in place, but having already had the benefits associated with offering it ahead of rival hotels.”
Hayley concluded: “Wireless charging is the next evolution in mobile technology and it’s fantastic to see luxury venues and brands such as LaLiT getting behind it.”
