Mobile phones, no matter how cheap they are, when stolen at public charging places became the owner's nightmare due to the information stored in the gadget. These days with companies and shops trying to woo customers are putting up mobile changers in their premises so that people whose batteries ran out of power can make use of it.
Banks, multiplexes, cinemas halls, shopping malls, etc are equipped with multiple-plugin recharging facilities for various handsets and many people use them. However, an equally large number of people reported that their gadgets have been stolen and these thieves are clever enough to avoid the CCTV cameras.
