COLUMBUS, Miss. – Students at The W no longer have to panic when a low battery notification pops up on their cell phones and other mobile devices.

The university has purchased six KwikBoost charging stations. One is located in McDevitt Hall computer lab, two in Hogarth Dining Center, two in Fant Library and one in Subway restaurant.

The charging stations are free to use and provide cable connections for most phones, tablets, e-readers and MP3 players.

KwikBoost technology intelligently identifies a user’s device and then delivers a safe, full speed charge based on what that device’s power demands are.
