FuelRod Facing Class Action Lawsuit After Doing Away With ‘Free’ Unlimited Swaps
When FuelRod machines begin surfacing at Walt Disney World a few years ago it was a real game-changer. No longer did theme park guests have to worry about running out of charge on smartphones and tablets. For a one-off fee of $30, guests could purchase a FuelRod starter kit with a battery which would rapidly charge your items. When your FuelRod battery ran out of juice, guests could stop at any FuelRod machine and get a replacement battery for FREE!
Sound too good to be true? Well, this policy is at the heart of a brand new class-action lawsuit that is being filed by a Los Angeles law firm against the company that operates the portable charger swapping machines at Disneyland, Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and other parks!
The according to the Orange County Register, a class-action suit was filed on October 25th at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California in SanDiego against Tricopian Inc and SaveMe Batteries North America. These are the parent companies of FuelRod portable charges. The suit was filed by the L.A. office of Francis Flynn Jr. on behalf of plaintiff Gabriel Veasey of Sarasota, Florida.
As of going to print, there has been no official word from the companies behind FuelRod as to whether they will continue to stand by the price increase. Keep following along with MickeyBlog for the latest news and updates!
