While on the topic of kiosks, I have noticed that some Telus stores in the mall have these charging stations.

It would be awesome if Koodo would be able to have charging stations as well. I bet anyone who is in need of juice with no charger is sight would be grateful.

As much as current Koodo customers would appreciate it, it would also bring non-koodo customers over to check things out. And extra foot traffic is great for attracting new customers. While they wait for some extra juice they could check out the great plans that Koodo has to offer.

You are missing out. I always duck in to charge my phone while the gf is shopping in her store ^^

Wow, never seen that before! We sure don't have one where I live (although we DO have a Telus store in our mall). I'd be wary, though, to leave my phone out in the open mall while I browse for new phones inside the store... It's still a novelty idea, I like it!

It would be cheap to build too. Any powered USB hub could potentially be used with a handful of usb extension cables, all within a Koodo-colored plywood box. Could be built for about $100 or so.

Agreed. I watch my phone like a hawk.
Usually when I am in need of a charge I go to the demo phones (the real ones not just the shell ones) they have at the stores and I unplug the charger and charge mine hehe

I usually go to bed with about 50% juice left in my battery, so I hardly ever feel the need to unplug something else to top up my phone :oP

"I watch my phone like a hawk."

It's too unfortunate that, sadly, some other people watch our phones like hawks too. :( That's why we need to keep our eyes open at all times.

Data on my iphone takes up all my battery. And that's data on and not being actively used (only email and imessage while my phone is alseep).

In Tokyo, those were everywhere. You even had charging stations with a plexi glass door that had a lock (like those lockers at the gym). You could see through the glass if your phone was charging and you could go about your things while your phone charged for about 4$.
