Our tech start-up of the week is WattSpot, which has developed mobile phone charging units for the hospitality sector that allows people to charge up their devices for free in the time it takes to enjoy a cup of coffee.

Applied psychology student Conor Nolan and entrepreneurship student Conor McGowan (both 21) are the founders of WattSpot, a firm supplying an innovative service to the hospitality industry.

The business, which operates out of the Media Cube at IADT in Dun Laoghaire, aims to tackle battery consumption issues for consumers on the go, through the provision of free phone charging facilities across the country.
