Due to ongoing feedback from previous products, the iQ 16 Cart has been designed to offer even more choice in bay quantities. Being just as versatile as the bigger brother (iQ 32 Cart™), the iQ 16 Cart offers the ability to transport up to 16 iPad devices at once but with a smaller foot print. The smaller design of the cart makes accessibility and transportation of devices a much easier task. It also utilises carry baskets/ Pods so that iPad devices can be transported independently of the cart. The integrated Sync Charge Box™ (iQ 16 SCB Sync Station™) lets you charge or sync all 16 devices simultaneously.
The first sample of the iQ 16 Cart has just arrived. Check out our latest photo shoot.
