Key Features


External Charging Status Display

With the Putnam Charging Station you don’t need x-ray vision to know the charging status of each individual device while they’re locked inside the station. Each slot is tied to an external, LED back-lit number that shows if a device is charging (red), charged (green) or not plugged in/missing (no light). Genius!

Kiss Those Tangled Cords Goodbye

It’s virtually impossible to tangle the charging cables in the Putnam Charging Station. The cords are the just the right length to reach each device–no more, no less, no mess. 


Look Ma, No Keys!

With an integrated mechanical combination lock, there are no keys to worry about. We all know brain farts happen, so we’ve included a master override key in case of forgotten combinations.


Setup is Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

Putnam Charging Stations are pre-wired with 8 or 16 MFi-approved lightning cables for iPad devices. Just take that puppy out of the box, program the lock, plug it in and get-a-chargin’. 

Smarter Workflow

Save Time by Increasing Efficiency.
Seamlessly integrate mobile devices into your workflow with this nifty little charging station. At a quick glance, the external lights allow you to easily know which devices are available for use. A centralized point of charging ensures that devices are always put back where they came from–and that they’re always charged and ready to go.

Better than a TGI Friday’s® Combo Platter. Combine a Putnam 8 with a Putnam 16 to charge 24 devices–or utilize 2 Putnam 16’s to get to 32 slots. To save space, stack two Putnams on top of one another. Or if congestion around the station is your main concern, simply place multiple Putnams in different areas to spread out the distribution of devices.

Product Benefits

With 2.4 amp charging at each port, the Putnam Charging Station can charge devices simultaneously.

Slot dimensions are optimized to work with many different cases and covers.

Check device compatibility below for specific slot dimensions.

The Putnam only takes up as much desk space as a sheet of scrapbook paper. Now that’s compact!

Once a device’s charge goes from red to green, the Putnam stops charging. This ensures that devices are not overcharged, increasing their longevity.

Stack two Putnam Charging Stations on top of each other to save even more space. An optional pedestal is available to provide easier access to the bottom slots, and it allows you to charge all 24 or 32 tablets with one outlet plug. It also keeps the unit higher off the floor so you don’t have to bend down as far to access devices on the bottom shelves.

Putnam Charging Stations have an optional wall-mounting kit available that allows you to mount the unit directly to the wall.

Fully-welded steel construction and a built-in mechanical combination lock make this charging station ultra secure. It’s also backed by a lifetime warranty worth writing home about.

How will you sanitize your tablet devices?

UVone UV-C Disinfection

Effective UV-C light disinfects to a 5-log kill, reducing the colony to 10 MRSA bacterium after a 99.999%* reduction. UVone reduces SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, by 99.99%*–which is 10x more effective than leading disinfecting wipes. With touchless sensors, users never physically touch the station, reducing cross contamination.
