The inventor behind the Amber Charging Stations is Bill Suey, who made the final cut for the 2 Hour Special of Shark Tank Season 6 on Sept. 26, 2014. Each charging station can charge up to seven cell phone's at a time, and all have their self-locking compartment to keep them safe and secure.
With a long lasting battery life on most smartphones, the need to physically go to a charging station is never a problem most of the time. But (and that's a big but) when you forget to charge your phone because it does last so long, no doubt most people will go way out of their way to visit the nearest establishment where they can easily recharge their cellphones.
According to Amber's website, (pre-Shark Tank appearance), you can only pre-order a cell phone charging station for $200.00 at this time. Hm, if I owned a restaurant, bar, motel, shopping centers, ski resort, airport, basketball stadium (hint, hint) or any business that has a lot of foot traffic, this would certainly seem like a good investment to attract and keep customers around a little longer. You can give this service away for free to current customers, and the new one's that find you via the Amber App, or charge a nominal fee to bring in additional revenue.
How much can you potentially make with the Amber charger? Oddly enough on the front page of the website, it says "start making as much as $180.00/month on mobile phone charging." Really? If those are the projected numbers based on optimistic numbers, maybe it might be best just to give the service away for free and make your money on the back end. On the other hand, an energetic entrepreneur servicing dozens of Amber charging stations in a variety of establishments could potentially make a very nice ongoing passive income with a minimal investment. Talk about an easy sale.
Will (did) the Amber Cell Phone Charger get the biggest charge of its life with an investment from the Sharks in this year's Season 6 premiere episode? No one knows just yet, but I'm sure glad Shark Tank Season 6 is finally here with ALL the original Sharks returning for what looks to be the "Best Season Ever".
