Back at the beginning of this month UK mobile provider EE announced they were launching a new service to offer its UK customers, with the launch of a new service to offer its customer a free EE Power Bar.
The EE Power Bar takes the form of a 2600mah portable battery that can be exchanged in EE stores around the UK when flat for another fully charged one. To help keep EE’s customers mobile devices topped up with charge.
The service launched in the UK on April 16th 2015 and EE received five times more requests in the first 24 hours of the promotion than even the most popular smartphone launch, the company reports. With EE receiving one million requests for the new EE Power Bar in just four days. EE explains :
“While we fulfil the requests we’ve already taken, we’re taking a short ‘power pause’ to replenish stock. More Power Bars are on their way for our second release at the end of June. If customers text in now, they will be advised to text back from 8am on June 24th – there will be no charge for these texts if no code is received.
We are aware that some stores ran out of stock over the weekend due to the demand and are sorry for any inconvenience. In order to meet demand of the first million requests we’re moving around stock to our busiest stores, so your local store should have a Power Bar available this week. If you have a code, we have a Power Bar for you.”
So if you are still waiting to get your hands on a EE Power Bar be patient as EE sort more stock. Although if you already have one you can now exchange it in EE stores throughout the UK to keep your mobile devices topped up with charge.
