THE BRONX - Swimmers and sunbathers no longer have to worry about charging their smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices before heading to Orchard Beach this summer.

A solar-powered mobile charging station is now open, and can handle up to six phones at one time.

The station is part of a new AT&T initiative to bring mobile charging to parks and beaches across the five boroughs.

AT&T says the pilot will last through the fall, and it will add more charge centers based on public feedback.
