The hallway charger is a wall stand, made of synthetic material, for storing and charging up to four Smartphones. It invites children (and parents who set the example) to turn off their Smartphone when they are getting ready for bed. This way the hallway charger works as a subtle form of parental control. A fixed storing place for Smartphones, preferably in the hallway to the bedrooms (the landing), contributes to children going to sleep peacefully and privately – safely, healthy and without risks.
The hallway charger was especially designed for fixing to the wall on the landing, but is also very useful and efficient in the workplace. For example, in shops where staff must not be disturbed, talking to customers, or small manufacturers where the use of Smartphones can lead to hazardous situations. Even in hospitals the hallway charger can prove its usefulness, for example by charging and storing the nursing staff's Smartphones safely.
The hallway charger is – as far as we have found – unique. There are numerous advantages. It can store four Smartphones at the same time, which can all be charged, no more hindering loose chargers and cords. Assembling is easy and the hallway charger is suitable for charging by USB-cables or wireless charging by use of Qi-panels. Anyone who wants his own specific hallway stand can adjust the back panel with coloring, painting or using photos to his own taste. But the greatest advantage is that the hallway charger contributes to children going to sleep undisturbed, in privacy and without risks. No smartphone is taken to bed.
