EE Give Free Portable Phone Charger to Broadband and Mobile Customers

Thursday, April 16th, 2015 (12:06 pm) - Score 2,144

Customers of EE’s mobile and fixed line home broadband service now have yet another bonus to keep them hooked, a free portable Smartphone charger called “EE Power” that can either be recharged at home or swapped for a fully-charged replacement bar at any EE store nationwide (apparently the swaps are “unlimited“).

The move follows shortly after EE began offering seamless WiFi calling (here) and a blockbuster film for £1 every week to all customers (here), which are all designed to stop subscribers from jumping ship to other providers.

Apparently anybody who wants one of EE’s new “Power Bars” (yes they named it like a popular energy snack) must first text the word “POWER” to 365 in order to receive a promotional code, although it’s not completely “free” since the text costs 35p. Customers can then collect their free Power Bar by redeeming this code at any EE store.

Pippa Dunn, Chief Marketing Officer of EE, said:

Almost everyone’s experienced the frustration associated with running out of battery and it always seems to happen when you need your phone the most. With EE Power, we’re trying to help by giving our customers a Power Bar that can simply be swapped for a fully charged one at any of our stores, at any time, for free.”

Take note that pay-as-you-go customers can also participate, although there is a caveat for them in that they must first have been with EE for at least three months.

NOTE: The Power Bar is a 2600mah unit, like many Smartphone batteries. It also has a guaranteed life of 500 charges and it takes approximately 4 hours to charge the bar from flat to full.

    …from 8am tomorrow (17/04/2015)

    1. Mark Jackson says:

      Press release says it’s launched today, but I think you might be right.

    2. Jamie says:

      Just checked, i’m wrong it was today 😀

    3. Astroturfer says:

      Mrs Astro bought one back earlier, now I know she got it free.

  2. So I have to drive about 15 miles to the nearest EE store or radical idea, I find a plug connected to this national grid thingy.

    Though I really do need to see if they have a Power Bar for an old Sony Ericsson T610, just for a laugh (PS: No that’s not my current phone).

    1. sentup.custard says:

      Ask them if they have one for my Nokia 3210 while you’re there, Martin. 😉

  3. 3G Infinity says:

    Be nice if they offered a Signal Box the same way, still can’t get 3G outdoors let alone 4G.

    1. Jamie says:

      They have decided to go with WiFicall instead which is a better solution as long as your phone supports it.

    ive tried 2 get the free ee charger im a ee broadband and tv customer but when i txt 365 power it just keeps saying failed why is this plz

    1. Vince says:

      You need to be an EE Mobile customer…

    2. Vince says:

      Actually sorry, scrap that. If you’re with EE for Home Broadband etc, you need to text:

      JOIN plus your EE landline number to 60005 (texts cost 35p).

  5. Vince says:

    I assumed the reason EE offer this now is because you will need to charge your phone because of the time you spend on the phone to them asking them why it’s so bad.

    In fact today, after 1.5h I finally got them to agree to cancel my contract, take back the handset and give me my PAC because I’ve had a month of entirely terrible service, everywhere I go with that farce of a network. How it has won any awards for reliability or performance is beyond me.
