Virgin Australia to offer free phone charging for Pokemon Go

THE launch of Pokemon Go has taken Australia (and the world) by storm, with demand for the game down-under taking the game's servers temporarily offline this morning.

In an attempt to remove another potential stressful situation for mobile gamers, Virgin Mobile has announced that all of its retail stores and kiosks will provide free mobile phone charging to gamers playing Pokemon Go. 

So no matter what network you're with, Virgin Mobile will give you that little bit of extra battery life so you can catch 'em all.

Every one of Virgin Mobile's 52 stores and kiosks nationwide will have chargers in all shapes and sizes plugged in and ready to go. So no matter whether you're on Android or iOS, you won't have to wait until you get back home to carry on gaming.

Virgin Mobile also provides free secure charge lockers in a number of Westfield shopping centre food courts.
