BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
These and other features of the invention will become more apparent from the following description of one embodiment, made by way of example, with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure 1 shows a perspective view of a shipping container providing a battery repository in accordance with the invention.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
Referring to the drawing, a shipping container is shown converted into a battery repository (1 ) for use in a method of and system for supplying a portable electrical power source. The container will be located in an informal development or where it can be accessed by members of rural communities.
The repository (1 ) is used to store and charge a suitably large number of batteries (not shown). To this end, the repository (1 ) will include a plurality of charging docks for the batteries. Charging of the batteries will, in this embodiment, be effected by suitable connection of the docks to roof-mounted solar panels (2).
The container (1 ) is set up as an entertainment center which has a Wi-Fi network and seating (3) arranged around a display monitor (4) that will be used to air television broadcasts and/or video recordings. A collection of battery adaptors (not shown) are provided for use by consumers. Each adaptor is configured for engagement to a battery and has a connection for an electrical output cable wired to the battery terminals. The battery charging docks in the repository (1 ) are provided as a bank of receptacles each provided with a fitting configured to slidingly receive a battery. The adaptors each comprise a plastics moulded component housing which is correspondingly configured to slidingly receive a battery. Once a battery is inserted into either a dock fitting or adaptor, internal contacts provide the required electrical connection to terminals on the battery.
The batteries are of the 12-volt gate motor type. The output connection is a socket on the adaptor. The socket is for a charging device of the kind connectable into a car cigarette lighter fitting. A charging device will be supplied together with a battery and adaptor to a consumer. The adaptor and charger are supplied as a charging kit which a consumer will pay for and receive together with a charged battery. An LED light that is connectable to the charging device will also be supplied. The consumer will use the battery as it sees fit: to charge a mobile phone or to operate any other appliance which can run off the battery power. Once the battery charge has been depleted, the consumer will return the battery to an exchange point, provided as a counter (5) at the repository (1 ). Before returning the battery, the consumer will make a payment covering the cost to receive a charged battery in exchange. The payment will preferably be effected as a pre-payment by the consumer as a purchase of a voucher from a mobile telephone airtime vendor. The vendor will supply a slip with a barcode which constitutes a redeemable battery voucher.
A till point which is also located at the counter (5) will be used to register the pre-payment. A barcode reader is used in this example; however, other means and systems for payment and/or redeeming pre-payment vouchers may also be used to implement the invention. A consumer may also provide a cash payment at the till point either for an initial battery together with adaptor and charger or for a battery exchange.
The used batteries are placed in the charging docks until they are charged and then put to one side for re-use.
The repository (1 ) will preferably be branded by a sponsor in the form of a mobile phone service provider. The monitor (4) can be used for advertising and signage with details of specials and prices can be placed on and around the container. The adaptor may also be branded by a sponsor of the repository (1 ). The branding may include manufacture of the adaptor in a particular colour associated with a mobile telephone service provider.
The charging docks will have charge indicators to show when a battery is fully charged. The adaptors will also preferably have charge indicators to show a consumer what a given battery charge level is. A series of LED lights arranged along a charge indication scale will be a convenient option for such an indicator. This will allow the consumer to manage the use of a battery and also for anticipated pre-payments and returns/exchanges to be made by the consumer.
The invention thus provides facility for convenient access by consumers to a readily available portable power supply source that particularly meets the needs of consumers in informal developments and/or rural communities.
The general application of the invention with respect to charging or operating electrical devices or appliances will be appreciated from the disclosure of this document. It will be appreciated that a number of variations may be made to the features of the described embodiment without departing from the scope of the current invention.
