The wireless carrier has announced that it will be adding additional solar charging stations around NYC to give more users the ability to charge up a dead device or top off a battery while on the go around the city. AT&T has added 45 new solar charging stations, nearly doubling the number of solar chargers available. The first of the charges went into use in 2013.

AT&T is placing the solar chargers in parks, near benches, and in other high-traffic locations around the city. The new chargers are more robust than the previous generation. In the coming years, AT&T plans to add as many as 242 charging stations to areas of NYC.
