The Powerbox is a versatile battery swap station for micromobility, designed to revolutionise how shared e-scooters recharge. Powerboxen are placed in shops across the city to create a charging network. Users are incentivised to swap a low battery in exchange for a free ride. User-based recharging ops mark a new era for micromobility. Powerboxes are a very scaleable infrastructure, they are plug and play and require no installation. A multi-vehicle Powerbox grid is the future of the gas station.
Statement of the jury
Empty batteries in, charged out. Couldn’t be easier and more convenient. The charging status is indicated by red and green LEDs. A functionally perfectly executed design that is intuitively understood by all. At the same time, the station appears appealing and modern overall thanks to its compact size and striking stylistic idiom.
