FAQ’s

How do customers use Joos?
Rent a power bank in five easy steps:
1) Download the ‘Joos’ app from the App or Play store
2) Register an account and payment card
3) Scan the QR code to eject a power bank & charge on the move
4) Hit the ‘return’ button to drop the power bank at a Joos Box, anywhere
5) Payment is processed digitally at the end of rental period, added to the customer’s order history in app

How much does Joos cost the customer?
Renting a Joos power bank costs only £2 for the first hour and £3 for up to 24 hours.
If the customer wants to keep it, billing will stop after ten days – our app will bill them ten daily caps of £3 (£30 total), then it’s their own for good.

How does a customer pay?
Before a power bank can be rented, customers are prompted to link a payment card to their Joos account in the app. To make things easy, in addition to new cards, we accept cards that customers have pre-registered to their Apple or Google wallet too.

How fast does it charge a phone?
The speed varies depending on the size and condition of the phone’s battery. A good benchmark is the ‘iPhone X’ can charge to 80% within 60 minutes, and 100% within 90 minutes.

What happens if the customer doesn’t return the power bank?
Customers are encouraged to pick up a power bank at one Joos Box & drop it off at another, even between venues & destinations.
If the customer never drops it off at any Joos Box, after ten days it becomes their own – they’ll have accrued ten daily caps of £3 (£30 total), billed to their registered payment card. Customers can charge their new Joos power bank via the microUSB
port on the side.

What happens if the power banks run out?
Power banks will be in constant circulation between Joos Boxes, so don’t worry if they drop low one moment as they will likely fill up again naturally. However, our smart system notifies our support team to arrange replenishment – included in the
service at no additional cost. You don’t need to contact us, we’ve got you covered.

Are the power banks tracked?
Our power banks don’t have GPS tracking, but we can monitor a power bank’s journey between Joos Boxes, and which customers they are loaned to.

Does Joos have any anti-covid measures?
Yes, your Joos power banks are made of medical grade anti-microbial plastic to minimise the risk of viral transmission.
In addition, a state-of-the art quarantine system withholds each power bank between use until any viral agent has broken down.

What about customer support & maintenance?
We have 24/7 live chat in the Joos app – it’s the best way to offer customers all the support they’ll ever need.

You can select a locker location and collect or drop off your parcel at a time that’s convenient for you. There is a charge of £1.99 to have an item delivered to the locker and the item will arrive the next day.
