Powerboxes 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.
