When making a large purchase, do you buy the first product that fits the general description of what you want, or do you spend time researching before making your decision? Consumers shop around to find the best price or highest quality product available, so why invest in a specific charging station if it might not be the best deal?

If you’ve done your research, you’ve probably realized that there can be a significant upfront cost when ordering a charging station. While some of the price includes the cost of the equipment and various services, a large portion of your initial cost actually comes from shipping fees.

In the age of Amazon Prime and Postmates, having goods delivered to your doorstep on a whim is second nature, so much so that we tend to forget that shipping things actually costs something. Whether it’s a 6-pack of socks or a 6-pack of your favorite drinks, you’ll usually end up paying a shipping and handling fee based on a number of different factors including delivery location, shipping method, and weight.

If the price tag is standing between you and your charging station, consider lowering the price by choosing the most lightweight model that fits your needs. For example, opting for a freestanding model rather than a heavier charging locker unit or table can help reduce your cost upfront.

InCharged is proud to offer the most lightweight charging stations available to consumers. Even our largest units that include HD screens are lighter than any other charging units on the market. The lightweight designs make our charging stations easily transportable- so much so that we also offer travel cases as an add-on.

If you’re looking for something with a lower profile, we also offer the largest variety of small charging units. For example, let’s say your venue or event space is a bit cramped, or the floor plan doesn’t work well with a freestanding charging unit. We offer a number of tabletop and wall-mounted charging stations (such as the Powermethod models) that are small, lightweight, and are guaranteed to drive the price down while still delivering the best charging experience.

When considering a new charging station, remember to keep the weight of your new unit in mind when calculating the overall cost. Anything you can do to reduce its weight will help save you on shipping fees and will make your charging station easier to transport. We’ve taken this out of the equation by designing all of our charging units to be as lightweight as possible, so you can focus on function, style, and branding rather than shipping fees!
