Supplier Spotlight: SuLo by XYZ

SuLo by XYZ provides charge-on-the-go rental portable chargers for smartphones or small electronic devices using Lightning, Micro USB, USB-C built-in cables. Watch SuLo's video to learn more about their portable chargers.

SuLo was founded by a University of Pittsburgh Alumna and employs multiple Pitt Alumni. SuLo also has a Diverse Business Enterprise status, designated as Asian American Woman-owned. After an introduction from the Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence, Purchasing Services finalized an agreement with SuLo to place charger rental stations on the Pittsburgh campus. Pitt is the first University to have SuLo's charger rental stations available on campus for students, staff, faculty, and visitors. This expands SuLo's network of portable rental chargers, which already has stations located at 32 local businesses in Pittsburgh. Read more about SuLo's story in this Pittwire article.

The first charger rental stations on the Pittsburgh campus are located at:

  • The University Store on Fifth
  • The Perch
  • Eatery
  • Computer labs: CL G27 & Lawrence 230
  • More coming soon!

Rental services have the ability to reduce the purchase of portable chargers in the market, supporting the University's sustainability initiatives. In addition, SuLo creates a fund for energy saving programs.
