(Oct 6/12) Would be really convenient to have chargers available for a short-term loan (one or two hours), in key locations such as Main floors of libraries, Mills Commons, etc. For laptops: a universal laptop charger with multiple tips/connectors would be ideal For phones: the Micro + Mini USB and iPhone connectors should satisfy most users. - High power ratings on the chargers for quick charging please! - Mini timer modules attached to the chargers that countdown from the loan time and beep upon termination could help sustain the service by ensuring users return items on time.

Library response: Many thanks for this suggestion, which has some potential. How do you envision this working? Would they be available for checkout, or permanently mounted somewhere, along the lines of a charging station? I'm assuming the former, since it can take a while to charge even with a powerful unit.   I'm not familiar with such timers. Do you have a specific model in mind? (Oct 9/12)
