I don’t know about the rest of you, but growing up, my school bag primarily consisted of folders, highlighters, the occasional glue stick, and of course the staple items – pens, pencils, and paper. And at the end of the day, the items we didn’t need to take home would simply be stored in our desks. Open, non-locking desks…because who would really go in and steal someone’s pencil?
But technological advancements have made it so pens and paper are no longer staples in the classroom of any grade level. These school items have been replaced with electronic tablets and laptops. Now these items are quite valuable and definitely prone to theft…so we wouldn’t recommend you or your students leaving these expensive items just in a desk overnight. Instead, store and charge all of these devices in a secure, locking cabinet. And you guessed correctly; we have just the cabinet in mind!
Our new Wall Mount Charging Station is the perfect accessory to any classroom, education center or college campus. It can hold anywhere between eight and 12 tablets or laptops, depending on size and orientation. With its 6.5” depth, the cabinet hugs nicely against the wall and is one of the only thin wall mountable charging stations on the market. It doesn’t take up much space so regardless of your room size, finding a spot for this cabinet won’t be hard.
What all do you get with the Wall Mount Charging Station? Good question – you get an A! The cabinet includes four shelves for storing devices. Each shelf has slots for cables to feed down through the cabinet and plug into the included 8 Outlet Power Strip, stored in the bottom enclosure. Now we know there could be more than 12 cables running up and down in this cabinet and the last thing we’d want is for these cables to become intertwined with one another. (Talk about an extra hassle for teachers and professors to deal with…so let’s just avoid that!) To help solve this issue, nine Adhesive Backed Cable Holders come included, but not pre-installed, with the Wall Mount Charging Station. During the installation of your charging cabinet, you can choose the placement for these self-sticking holders based on your tablet charging needs. The “mouth” on each cable holder keeps cables in place – whether or not a device is being charged at that time. Sounds pretty slick, right?
Well, we’re not done yet. We have a few more qualities about this charging station that will make teachers want to get out their “Wow,” “Way to go,” and “Awesome job” stickers. For instance, the Wall Mount Charging Station is made out of aluminum so it’s lightweight and easy to install. Plus, you don’t have to worry about your devices overheating because vented slots can be found all throughout the cabinet to promote air flow around the devices. You also don’t have to worry about damaging the devices or scratching the screens because each shelf is lined with rubber and foam strips.
Alright, we’ve finally reached the quality that makes the Wall Mount Charging Station head of the class. With each new school year comes new teachers, students, curriculum, and likely new electronic devices. But don’t worry; you don’t have to switch out your cabinet! The Wall Mount Charging Station was designed to last evolving technology and adapt to new charging styles. It is not proprietary to any brand or charging style, so if charging ports change with newer versions, you can still use this charging station.
I think it’s about time we wrap this up so you can get ahold of us and talk to us about the new Wall Mount Charging Station! Give us a call – we’re anxious to discuss this innovative new product with you!
