SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 21, 2015) - Tricopian, LLC is pleased to announce that Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is the latest airport to offer air travelers its FuelRod kiosks.

Nine automated SwapBox™ kiosks are now located throughout Terminal 1-Lindbergh and provide travelers with ready-to-use, portable mobile chargers that eliminate the need for electrical outlets. 

Priced at just $20 each, one FuelRod charger can deliver up to eight hours of additional talk time on an average smartphone, or nearly four additional hours of usage on the most demanding of tablets. Every FuelRod Kit includes connectors for both Android- and Apple-based devices. Once depleted, users can either recharge the FuelRod with a standard USB connection or quickly exchange it -- at no additional cost -- at any SwapBox kiosk for a fresh, fully fueled, ready-to-use charger.

"We believe the FuelRod portable charger kiosks will add a new level of convenience for our passengers who increasingly rely on their portable electronics while traveling," said Elizabeth Grzechowiak, Assistant Director Concessions and Business Development for Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. "We pride ourselves on providing the right blend of concessions and passenger services and the FuelRod kiosks perfectly complement the range of services we offer here at MSP."

"It's been a pleasure working with MSP Airport," says co-founder Joe Yeagley. "Our FuelRod airport program is gaining momentum across the nation and abroad. Travelers now have a very cost-effective and convenient way to ensure their mobile devices stay fully charged while traveling."
