A luxury hotel in London has opted to install the latest development in wireless charging, as it provides guests with CHARGit’s convenient, ultra-modern charging facilities that will enhance the guest experience.
LaLiT London, located in the heart of London near Tower Bridge, has chosen to bring in CHARGit’s wireless charging capabilities as it looks to offer an additional luxury service to its guests that will differentiate it from its rivals.
CHARGit, launched in March this year, allows for multiple devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops to charge simultaneously through a surface, without the need for plug cables, offering ease of use for consumers, and a new service offering for businesses.
The technology has been installed in a number of communal areas within LaLiT London, with plans underway to install it in all of the hotel suites.
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 and set 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, as we want our guests to have an enjoyable, relaxing and stress free stay. We are particularly attractive to international travellers, and the fact that CHARGit removes the need for travel plug adaptors is another key benefit.”
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, providing 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’ that can be installed to 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, which 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.
LaLiT London has installed CHARGzones at its reception desks, in two meeting rooms, 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, so it will be a new experience for them, 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.”
