    Most mobile phone chargers are not really chargers, only power adapters that provide a power source for the charging circuitry which is almost always contained within the mobile phone.[15] They are notoriously diverse, having a wide variety of DC connector-styles and voltages, most of which are not compatible with other manufacturers' phones or even different models of phones from a single manufacturer.

    Users of publicly accessible charging kiosks must be able to cross-reference connectors with device brands/models and individual charge parameters and thus ensure delivery of the correct charge for their mobile device. A database-driven system is one solution, and is being incorporated into some designs of charging kiosks.

    No, there aren't any.

    Are you asking if there are any, or saying they should or might have them someday?

    Looks like on the picture kiosk that you pay to use it, why would I pay for that when I can plug the thing into a wall somewhere?

    While there aren't any kind of those cell phone charging machines, there are a few outlets located around the park. I would suggest this thread for a list of places in WDW that have outlets- http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3026797

    The airports I've been in that have charging stations just have a bunch of outlets gathered together on a pole with a little counter underneath. Or some have long counters with stools with an outlet for each seating spot so people can charge computers while they use them.

    That first picture looks overly complicated.

    ~That contraption looks scary :scared:, lol. I'm glad our airport doesn't have anything like that! There are several outlets provided throughout the entire terminal and on most of the columns with a little table to rest your cell phone or device on, there are also some are bar style stations & they are all free!!! :goodvibes

    Closing as not relevant to WDWtrip planning.
