No Free Wifi?

It’s becoming more common. Cafes and shops with free wifi and also free charging facilities.

But will it stay free?
In the UK some cafes are cutting off free wifi so their shops don’t become virtual offices. ...
And ... One café in Austria is taking it further ... by charging a fee for using its power outlets to charge phones and computers.

Mobile Phone cracked screen
A recharge during a 15-minute coffee is still fine. More than that will add to the bill.
The fee applies also to laptops and tablets and it is multiplied by the number of devices being recharged.
Is it the start of a new trend?
How much does it cost to charge your smart phone over the course of a year?
Technology website ZDnet found it costs around A$1 ... YES $1 for the whole year!
