In this day of age, almost everyone uses some sort of electronic device. However, one of the most frustrating things about technology is that batteries tend to not last very long. Having fully charged devices is especially important to travelers who want to stay connected during long trips.

During desperate times, people will do anything to juice up their device batteries. Nowadays it isn't a rare sight to see someone sit in a public bathroom or hallway while waiting for their device to charge. One place where technology users frequently charge up is at airports while they wait for the next flight during layovers. Being able to charge a device is especially important to business travelers who do work from computers or need to make business calls on the go.

Delta Airlines understands this so they're adding more charging stations to their gates at several airports across the country and the world. Delta will add at least two recharging stations at their boarding gates at 13 airports.

The charging stations will allow travelers to charge their cellphones, tablets, mp3 plays, e-readers and other devices before they board the plane.

Tokyo Narita International Airport was the first to feature a new recharging station at a Delta gate. The station includes six standard U.S. 110-volt outlets and two powered USB ports.

Delta already has charging stations at their gates at 20 airports. This expansion would equip 33 airports with Delta charging stations.

Airports that already have charging stations are at Delta's top 20 busiest airports including Atlanta; Boston; Cincinnati; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Hartford; Indianapolis; Los Angeles; Memphis; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Nashville; New York's JFK and LaGuardia; Norfolk; Omaha; Pittsburgh; Portland, Ore.; Salt Lake City; Seattle and St. Louis.

The new expanded recharging station project will include airports in Kansas City; Anchorage, Alaska; Austin, Texas; Denver; Dallas; Houston; Milwaukee, Wis.; New Orleans; Ontario, Calif.; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Syracuse, N.Y.; and Tokyo.
