When a New Orleans company expands into Las Vegas through a partnership with Caesar’s Entertainment you might think gambling. Well you should be thinking phone charging, because everybody needs a charged phone.

New Orleans mobile phone charging startup MobileQubes has partnered with Caesars Entertainment to bring their kiosks into heavily trafficked casinos. Caesars will provide the charging kiosks at Harrah’s Las Vegas, The LINQ Hotel & Casino, Flamingo Las Vegas, The Cromwell, Bally’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and the Rio All Suite Resort & Casino.

MobileQubes are portable power banks that are sold out of a kiosk machine. They rent in most cities for $4.99 and at the Caesars properties they will cost $6.99. That will get you 24 hours with the charger, and the charger comes fully charged. At the end of the rental period you return the charger to the kiosk. You can also elect to keep the charger for $44.

The chargers are 3,000 milliamps which should be good enough to charge your phone nearly two times.

The company was founded by Sean Carrigan after he had an all too familiar experience. He was at a restaurant one evening and his phone was going dead. The restaurant wouldn’t allow him to charge his phone and it eventually went dead. From there Mobilequbes was born.

The company already has kiosks in 14 states with the most being in New Orleans. They have a good presence in New York as well. The Las Vegas deal will hopefully lead to MobileQubes in other casino properties across the country. The company hopes to scale nationwide in the next two years.
