    i have been reading about the Fuel Rods, how does it work? i read that once you make the purchase it is your to keep, does that mean i can still switch out the battery for a new one after it is used up? is there any more details on this?

    Hiya Samantha!

    Thank you so much for stopping by!  The Portable Charging System I purchased last year at Walt Disney World Resort is one of my favorite purchases by far!  No more lugging around a heavy external battery, or tethering yourself to a plug desperately hoping your phone charges quickly!  The batteries are lightweight, easy to use, and so convenient!  

    So here's how it works.  You pay the $30 fee for the charging system.  It comes with the battery and cables provided for iPhones and Android devices.  It comes in a cute little plastic case with directions.  The battery is fully charged and ready to go!  Just plug and charge!  If you return back to your hotel in the evening and remember--you can charge your battery for the next day.  If you forget and head out to the parks without your battery fully charged and need a fully charged battery?!  NO WORRIES!!  Simply return to a Portable Charging System Kiosk, exchange that dead battery, and bam!  A new, fully charged one is yours!  SO SIMPLE!

    My new BFF came home with me, and I use him all the time!  So handy to use on day trips and field trips, etc...he's just fantastic to have around!  

    Have a magical vacation!
