Smart Benches

Shoppers are now able to use our new innovative Strawberry Smart Benches to power-up their Android and iPhone mobiles, along with other mobile devices with USB connections.

Designed by Serbian company Strawberry Energy, these smart platforms use solar energy to power gadgets without the need for electricity, therefore encouraging greener, cleaner energy use in the community.

The highly practical Smart Benches can charge a phone battery from 0-100% in the same time as it would take at home, and it only takes 10 minutes to enliven your phone, ready for more shopping. The benches can also cleverly track air quality and noise levels in the surrounding area around the MK1 Shopping Park.
