What Our Customers Say – Storage and Charging Stations

We often get comments sent through our social media and Twitter pages thanking us for making people’s lives easier.  But what exactly is it that makes our customers excited about our products? We thought we would share with you a few of the most common reasons for choosing LocknCharge! 

If you have any brilliant tips yourselves or comments for us here at LocknCharge, please feel free to leave a message on our Twitter page: @LocknCharge or on our Facebook page:

“Amazing customer service from Matthew in the UK.” 
-Maesglas Primary 

When Paul Symons founded LocknCharge in 1998 (after noticing a need for securing laptops and devices in his school) he had some founding principles. LocknCharge was created to make people’s life easier. Easier for all of the people that use carts and easier for all students that use tablets, Chromebooks, iPads or technology.

Not only this, Paul had the philosophy that he wanted to produce innovative and high-quality designed products all underpinned with responsive customer service.  This responsive customer service still lies at the heart of the LocknCharge ethos today and sets LocknCharge apart from other storage cart companies – we want you to love the carts we make and have confidence in the people that deliver that service.

 “Great product, user-friendly, and matches our schools interior design.” 
-Samantha Kosakowski

We understand that in schools there is a lack of free space and a lack of resource.  That is why we have designed smart products that are able to transform any wall, desk or bench into a secure space for charging mobile devices.

In particular, the CarryOn mobile charging station is more than just a pretty face. The aluminium outer shell makes it both lightweight and durable, protecting the devices inside. The transparent acrylic door allows customers to quickly check that all the devices are there, while the impact resistant PCABS alloy edging gives it a neat and classy look. It’s finished off with an aluminium handle to make it comfortable and easy to carry.  And all available in a number of different colours to suit any environment!

“Wired a LocknCharge Cart in under 20 minutes.”
-Matt Nichols

Time is arguably the most precious commodity in schools.  And because of this our cable management has been simplified on all of our carts so that you can wire an entire charging station quickly and easily.  We understand that not every school is able to have an IT specialist on hand, and with straightforward instructions and help via our customer service team if necessary, you will be up and running with your cart in no time, even if you have no prior computing knowledge.

“Really impressed with both build quality and design.”
-BedesIT Services

We know that we will never stop the threat of people stealing school equipment, but there are solutions that can ultimately protect the investment schools and communities are making for their students. With more than 1 million devices protected in LocknCharge storage and charging solutions, we have learned a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t for securing devices.

Our heavy-duty construction and a two-point locking system protect your valuable device investment when they’re not in use. Additionally, an optional anchor kit can be used so that the cart can be secured in one location.

Not only that but we are so confident in the robustness of our products that all carts come with a lifetime warranty.  A pretty sound investment.

“A great product that makes our ICT usage so simple.”
-Maesglas Primary 

Technology does not have to be confusing to be great.  The most innovative technological designs often look the simplest.  And we have worked extremely hard at LocknCharge to deliver attractive designs that are fully functional, have unique features, yet are easy to use.  One example of this is through our basket designs.  A great innovation allowing students to have control over their own devices and deployment without having to compromise on quality or usage. 

“Hours of teaching time saved.”
-123ICT, Stonesfield School

A recent video case study that LocknCharge produced, found that you can save up to a staggering 70 hours of class time each year just by choosing a suitable device management system for iPads, Chromebooks or other tablet devices.  You can see the video case study here: 

The video, which shows in real time a class of school children both handing out and collecting tablets, demonstrates the difference a product can make not just to teaching time, but to class concentration, general management of class devices or materials, and space issues.

The video was taken at the beginning of each lesson with a traditional style cabinet tablet storage cart.  The traditional cart took 10 minutes and 3 seconds to complete deployment of 30 units.  This was then repeated with a LocknCharge storage device, which took just 4 minutes and 50 seconds – saving a huge 5 minutes and 13 seconds out of just one lesson in teaching time, just by using our unique basket systems.

And finally – if you don’t believe us just yet, a recent testimonial we would like to finish on in tribute to our CEO James Symons- a thank you from a very happy customer!

“Thank you, James Symons for making products that make life easier. Your products rock!”
-Gary P Lambert, Dir21K Leaning
