Which devices are ChargeBoxes suitable for?

The ChargeBox is designed to provide suitable storage for most, if not all smart devices. Charged variants utilise a 13 amp charging socket which safely supplies power to smart devices, tailored for a UK 3-pin socket.

The shelf size varies for each model; however many are able to fit multiple devices including laptop tablets and phones.

Are ChargeBox lockers secure?

Each door is reinforced steel and secured with a solid hinge. Its welded front frame, internal door straighteners and weighty structure makes it perfect for busy environments.

ChargeBox utilises a unique patent-pending smart lock and intelligent software to ensure the safety and security of stored items. The electric lock is much more secure than a PIN locking system which is very visible even from a distance. ChargeBox offer six locking options to choose from, including combination locks and pad lock variants.
