free cellphone charging station

Filipinos are crazy about text messaging or SMS and it isn't any wonder to see anyone busy typing/sending away SMS wherever or whenever they are., doesn't matter wethere you're walking or driving, it is a common scene here in the Philippines. It is a very influential and powerful tool in the Philippines, where the average user sends 10-12 text messages a day. The Philippines alone sends on the average 400 million text messages a day or approximately 142 billion text messages sent a year, more than the annual average SMS volume of the countries in Europe, and even China and India. It is said that the Philippines is the texting capital of the world.

And being addicted to SMS or text messaging, Filipinos always have these empty or low battery problems. Good thing most food chain stores offer free cellphone charging, these charging stations offer charger for different cellphone but you have to be responsible in keeping an eye on your phone.
