Our History

In the Spring of 2007, Scott Calhoun and Ryan Doak, decided to go into business together after collaborating on a project with Six Flags. Ryan’s expertise lay in digital signage and Scott had been working in China on mobile device charging. Together they realized that they could develop an innovative product that was like nothing else in the market. Their expertise in technology, engineering, and digital signage would lead them into pioneering in the cell phone charging industry.
