Mobile Charging Services

Running out of battery on your phone while you are out and about can be a stressful experience. There is no need to panic when your phone’s battery drops into the red, because there are many places in Hong Kong where you can get a quick boost of power.

On the MTR

Several major MTR stations are equipped with “iCentres”, which feature free Wi-fi and computers that have access to the internet.

They have USB charging ports where you can charge your phone for free. The time is limited to 15 minutes per user, although if there is no one else waiting for a plug you can just re-plug your phone into the charging point and get another 15 minutes of juice.

The charging ports are located at the orange iCentres at 13 major MTR stations on the Island Line, Kwun Tong Line, Tsuen Wan Line, and Tung Chung Line.

Shopping Malls 

Many shopping centres have mobile phone charging stations, which are normally located by the customer service desk. Some larger and upscale shopping malls will even rent out portable battery packs for you to charge your phone as well. Please approach the customer service counter for details.    

 

Convenience Stores 

Circle-K stores have power banks you can rent out. You can borrow a power bank from any Circle K branch, except the ones that are inside MTR stations. It costs HK$15 for three days, but you must put down a HK$150 deposit that you’ll get back when you return the charger.
