Operator says one million power banks have been taken by customer in under four days
EE will not have more Power Bars in stock until June, the operator confirmed, after handing out more than a million of the charging solutions to customers in just four days.
The rewards scheme launched on Thursday morning but many stores had ran out by the following day as reported by Mobile News.
EE has confirmed that uptake had been “incredible” and has delayed the next wave of Power Bars until June 24.
The operator said customers who have already texted “Power” to 365 during the first few days of the scheme will still be able to collect their power bank. EE advised anyone who hadn’t received a code yet to wait until the scheme reopens in June.
The in store swap scheme – which allows customers to swap their empty Power Bar for a fully charged one – is also up and running.
EE’s website said: “If you’re one of the lucky one million customers to already have a code, we have a bar for you. Head to your nearest store today to collect it (subject to stock availability).
“If you didn’t receive a code, don’t worry – you won’t be charged for the text. We have more bars on the way and are advising customers to text back on June 24th.”
