LocknCharge Launches Four New Charging and Syncing Carts and Stations Designed to Support Mobile Devices at K-12 Schools
Built Strong as a Fortress for Schools LocknCharge Products Include Lifetime Warranties
PALM SPRINGS, CA, March 19, 2015 – At the CUE tradeshow, K-12 mobile device management specialist LocknCharge launched four new products for safely storing, syncing and charging the latest mobile devices at schools. Educators at CUE could see in person the new innovations from a world leader in learning technology at LocknCharge’s booth #556. The company is known for innovative Carts that efficiently store and simultaneously charge mobile devices in schools. The new compact in size Carrier 20 Cart™ is designed for transporting through tight hallways and can efficiently store, sync and charge as many as 20 mobile devices at once. The universal Cart works with iPad®, iPad Air™ or iPad Mini™ devices and most other tablets, laptops and Chromebooks.
In addition, three new desktop or wall mounted charging stations offer smaller options to help schools store, sync, charge, secure and distribute as many as 10 devices in the iQ 10 Charging Station™, iQ 10 Sync Charge Station™, and Carrier 10 Charging Station™. All of these new products feature LocknCharge’s proprietary hand-carry Baskets.
The Carrier 20 Cart, as well as the new iQ 10 Charging Station, Carrier 10 Charging Station and iQ 10 Sync Charge Station solve the problem of storing, charging and protecting iPad devices, tablets, Chromebooks and laptops in schools. The rolling, high-quality steel Cart and stationary Charging Stations make organizing and charging mobile devices in the classroom simple. The Cart and Charging Stations all ease and speed up device distribution and sharing through the ergonomic Baskets by LocknCharge. The Cart includes four removable Baskets that hold up to five devices each and is designed to enable several people to access it at once. The smaller Charging Stations each contain two Baskets. The signature Baskets are light and easy to carry to a different room, if rooms are sharing devices, or upstairs without moving the Cart.
“LocknCharge provides the highest quality, forward thinking Charging Carts, Charging Stations and Sync and Charge Stations that work with any mobile devices schools are using to keep them safe, secure and always ready for students to use,” said James Symons, CEO of LocknCharge. “Our four newest products improve on our ideas with choices and features that teachers want. The Carrier 20 Cart, for example, is a new model in our popular Carrier line of Carts, only now optimized for smaller spaces and deployments.”
Efficient charging is essential for iPads and tablets in school settings to be productive, ensuring they are ready when students need them. The new Cart can charge up to 20 devices simultaneously.
Teachers or IT administrators can easily secure the Cart and keep their devices safe at the end of the school day. The Cart features secure doors that have two locking points to protect the school’s valuable mobile technology investment safely inside. The Cart can also be chained to the floor overnight, with the included floor anchor, locking it in place so it can’t be moved or stolen.
Carrier 20 Cart Features
The Carrier 20 Cart is equipped with four extra-large, removable five-slot Baskets by LocknCharge, so teachers can deploy as many as 20 iPad devices with ease. Some additional Carrier 20 features are:
- New larger Baskets by LocknCharge. The Carrier 20 Cart is equipped with larger Baskets, allowing it to fit bigger devices. Teachers can store and safely distribute 13-inch Chromebooks, tablets or iPad For any devices that are too large to fit in the Baskets, there is a three-level adjusting storage shelf. This allows users to place an optional Stainless Steel Device Rack into the Cart’s storage area. The rack accommodates up to 17-inch laptops.
- A Remote Control is included so that the Cart can be turned on from almost anywhere in the classroom.
- The secure soft-closing, sliding lid doubles as an additional workspace holding up to 44 lbs.

Charging and Sync Stations
LocknCharge offers stationary security for up to 10 iPads, tablets, Chromebooks and laptops with its three new locking “Charging” and “Sync Charge” Stations – the iQ 10 Charging Station, iQ 10 Sync Charge Station, and Carrier 10 Charging Station. The combination of welded-steel construction, a mounting-kit and a hardened steel padlock, protects a school’s devices while they are not in use. Any wall, desk or bench can be used to securely install these Stations for charging mobile devices. The Charging Stations are designed to be flexible and adapt to each school’s environment. Secure charging is provided by an externally accessible power outlet, which enables charging of devices while they are safely locked in the Charging Station. Each of the three Charging Stations includes two five-slotted LocknCharge hand-carry Baskets, for quick and easy distribution of devices.
The iQ 10 Sync Charge Station is the most comprehensive of the new stationary Charging Stations, with the added ability to sync 10 devices simultaneously with top of the line syncing technology. Also, this Station is one of the first LocknCharge products to include LED status indicators that instantly tell teachers and students the charging and syncing status of each device while they’re connected.
