Which Charging Solution is Best for Your School?
Which charging solution is best for your school may be a hard question to answer for some schools. When schools are planning to roll out devices for their students, the charging solution may be the least important part of the project. Many schools want to get devices into their student’s hands right away to start learning. When those devices run low on battery though, how is your school keeping them powered up? There are many charging solutions out there, and ScholarBuys wants to help your school choose the right one!
One of the most popular charging solutions that we suggest is a charging cart. They have the ability to hold a classroom set of devices, while also having the ability to move from classroom to classroom. Many manufactures offer charging carts in different sizes. In our popular ScholarBuys Chromebook Bundle we offer a 30 unit charging cart. There are many charging carts in the 30-unit range, here are a few that we recommend: Spectrum Connect30, Spectrum Connect36, LocknCharge Carrier30, LocknCharge Joey30, Bretford CUBE (32-unit), and Anywhere Carts (36-unit). If your school is needing a cart for less or more devices there are many options as well.
- Devices up to 13″
- Chromebooks up to 13”
- Devices 9″-14″
- Devices up to 15.6″
Is a charging cart not the right fit for your school? Some schools looking at a smaller deployment, wanting to save space, or know that they will be keeping the devices in a specific room may want a cabinet style unit. Similar to charging carts, there are many different charging cabinet options. In fact, the manufacturers mentioned previously for charging carts also have cabinet style charging units. Here are a few options that we recommend: Spectrum Connect10 Locker, Spectrum InTouch16 Cabinet, LocknCharge Carrier 10, LocknCharge Carrier15, Anywhere AC-MINI (12-unit), and the Anywhere AC-MINI-16.
- Devices up to 13”
- Devices 9”-17”
