New Syncing and Charging Carts for iPad

01.10.14 by velsen in Blog

New Syncing and Charging Carts for iPad®, iPad Air™ or iPad mini™ Devices  – LocknCharge launches two new Carts, iQ 30 Cart™ and EVO 40 Cart™. Available to Schools Now Through Apple Education Store.

 

MADISON, Wis., Sept. 23, 2014 –K-12 mobile device management specialist LocknCharge launched two new syncing and charging Carts for iPad devices for back to school. The iQ 30 Cart and EVO 40 Cart are smartly designed to meet the needs of iPad, iPad Air or iPad mini device collections in school environments. Schools can store, sync, charge, secure and transport as many as 30 devices in the iQ 30 Cart and 40 devices in the larger EVO 40 Cart.

Efficient charging makes for more productive iPad devices and ensures they are ready when students need them. With power at every port, the iQ 30 Cart can charge up to 30 iPad devices simultaneously, while the EVO 40 Cart can charge up to 40.

Once the devices are charged, they need to be synced. Efficient syncing means more time to teach and learn. Using iTunes or Apple Configurator on a Mac computer, both the iQ 30 Cart and the EVO 40 Cart can sync up to 40 iPad devices simultaneously. Both Carts are modular and mobile featuring LocknCharge’s removable iQ 16 Sync Charge Boxes, allowing syncing and charging to be done almost anywhere, independently of the Cart. The iQ 16 Sync Charge Box has an intelligent power management system that automatically stages the availability of power to each port. This function prevents the potential of overloading the circuit, protecting the school’s devices.

“Schools that are investing in iPad devices will find our iQ 30 Cart and EVO 40 Carts a valuable enhancement that makes it easy and convenient for teachers to access, sync, charge, store and protect all of their iPad devices,” said James Symons, CEO of LocknCharge. “It speaks strongly about the quality and attention to detail in LocknCharge products that the Apple Education Store is selling these Carts this fall!”

LocknCharge, a global leader in providing K-12 mobile device management solutions, is headquartered in Madison, WI. The company is known for innovative Syncing and Charging Carts that efficiently store and simultaneously charge mobile devices in schools.

The iQ 30 Cart and EVO 40 Carts are innovative solutions for storing, charging and protecting iPad devices in schools.  The new syncing and charging Carts lets teachers focus on teaching using mobile technology without being slowed down by it. The portable high-quality steel Carts make organizing and charging mobile devices in the classroom simple. These LocknCharge Carts ease and speed up device distribution and sharing through ergonomic carry baskets. The well inside the iQ 30 Cart includes six removable baskets that hold up to five devices each and is designed to enable several people to access it at once. Two side wells in the EVO 40 Cart include a total of eight baskets that also hold up to five devices.

By using multiple newly designed, five-slotted baskets to contain the devices, multiple students can quickly grab a basket and help distribute, or the baskets can be passed down rows. The signature baskets are light and easy to carry to a different room, if rooms are sharing devices, or upstairs without moving the Cart. The baskets are also helpful if a teacher only needs some of the iPad devices. They help to protect the devices from accidental dropping and are designed to fit devices with or without cases.

LocknCharge makes it easy for teachers or IT administrators to secure the Carts and keep their devices safe at the end of the school day. The Carts feature an advanced highly secure lid and doors, with two layers of key locks to protect the school’s valuable mobile technology investment safely inside. The LocknCharge Carts can also be chained to the floor overnight, with the included floor anchor, locking them in place so they can’t be moved or stolen.
