Power Poles let Heathrow's travellers recharge for free

The airport has spent £300,000 ($447,560/€337,953) researching, producing and installing a total of 47 Power Poles across terminals one and three. A Power Pole rollout is also planned for terminal four.

Each Power Pole can recharge up to eight gadgets simultaneously, but you’ll have to provide your own charger.

Samsung is sponsoring the airport’s Power Poles, which will also house a glass display unit to showcase the firm’s latest gadgets.

Juan Perez, of Heathrow Airport’s owner BAA, promised that the Power Poles will “provide an effective cost-free solution to a genuine problem”. ®
