According to new signage on FuelRod kiosks at Walt Disney World Resort, free charger swaps will be discontinued this winter.
On Nov. 1, swapping chargers will now cost $3 per swap. Originally, the FuelRod chargers were a one-time purchase fee of $30, and guests could swap them out for new, fully charged batteries as many times as they liked.
The initial purchase of a FuelRod kit includes a fully-charged battery and a charger cord with adapters for iPhone and Android devices. With this kit, however, it is still possible for guests to charge their batteries at home before heading to the parks.
This new fee follows Universal Orlando installing the same fee at their FuelRod kiosks, which was implemented this past March. However, if you download the FuelRod app, you can get free five swaps to help stave off $15 in fees.
