One of my biggest challenges at Walt Disney World has always been keeping my electronics charged. Taking videos and photos, posting on social media, my Iphone and camera would barely make it to lunch time.
There are places in the Walt Disney World parks that you can charge your devices. For example, over near the Tangled washrooms in the Magic Kingdom are some very cute little tree stumps with ports to charge your phone.
When I’m in the parks though, I prefer to be able to charge ‘on the go’ and not be stuck sitting in one place to top up my battery life. The answer to this is the Fuel Rod.
The Fuel Rod is $30 USD and available at many locations throughout the Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts.
Inside of the Fuel Rod package you will find:
- One fully charged portable battery
- One 6” USB to micro-USB cable (for most Android devices)
- One Apple 30-pin to USB cable (for iPhone and iPad generations 1-4)
- One Apple Lightning to USB cable (for iPhone generations 5+)
Having that first one fully charged enables you to charge your phone immediately. When I purchased mine, it charged my iPhone 6 plus fully from 15% battery.
The best part of the Fuel Rod is the swap. After charging my phone, I located a Fuel Rod kiosk in the parks and swapped my depleted battery for a fully charged one for free! I inserted the battery in to the kiosk and it spit out a new one in seconds.
After my trip I have charged my Fuel Rod multiple times using the included cables so that I can always have a spare battery source with me wherever I go.
Have you purchased a Fuel Rod? Did you love it?
