Frequently Asked Questions

Porty is Turkey’s first powerbank rental service. It is an innovative solution that will completely change the charger ecosystem.

With technological developments, smart mobile phones have become an indispensable element of human life as they carry a task beyond communication. During instant sharing via smartphones (such as e-mail traffic, photo and video shooting, social media use), charging problems occur due to intensive use, which negatively affects business and private life. Due to charging problems, people have to carry their chargers with them all the time or entrust their phones to unsafe environments. This also means that they cannot reach their phones when needed. They even leave the place they are in before they plan due to the aforementioned problem. Porty, designed to eliminate the problem, aims to be beneficial to users and businesses with this understanding.
