FuelRod lawsuit ends; ‘Founders’ can still receive free swaps

by Brittani Tuttle

The class-action lawsuit filed against FuelRod last year has been resolved, and now those with the newly-created “Founders” status are eligible to continue to receive free swaps.


For early adopters of the rechargable batteries, those with Founder status can continue to enjoy free, unlimited swaps at any FuelRod kiosk, including those at the Disney Parks. There is no cost to eligible customers to become a Founder.

Once verified, Founders will need to use the official FuelRod app at the kiosks in order to obtain their free swaps. The app will generate a scannable QR code that will need to be put into the kiosk at the time of the swap.

In order to receive verified Founder status, all existing FuelRod customers are encouraged to fill out a questionnaire that requires specific information related to their purchase, including what credit card was used, the time of purchase, and a photo of their battery as proof of ownership. Once verified, the customer must create an account on the official app (available on the App Store and Google Play) using the same email address indicated in the questionnaire before their Founders status can be activated.

The creation of the Founders status has resolved pending litigation against FuelRod for the policy change last year regarding swap fees.
