The result was greater than the sum of its parts.”
Amber One is is a wall mounted, lockable phone charging station that is free to use. Users scan their fingerprint, plug their phone into an individual compartment and lock its door. Amber keeps phones secure until that same fingerprint is scanned. Amber allows businesses to monetize through optional charging fees, heightened customer experience and increased customer traffic.

Wide Compatibility – Amber charging adapters are compatible with 95% of all phones in North America. Amber provides charging adapters for all iPhones and almost all Android devices.
Plug-N-Play – Amber can be shipped to a venue’s doorstep. Installation only requires a wall power socket.
Amber Enterprise – Businesses using Amber can opt to charge customers a nominal fee to recharge their phone- maximizing revenues. If ten users charge their phone each , businesses featuring Amber can gross $405 per month in customer payments. day
Intelligent Customer Interface- Businesses have a new medium for customer interaction. Amber provides email capturing and trend-tracking to stay active with users and grow a customer base.
