Got a Bunch of iPads to Charge? Kensington’s Charge & Sync Cabinet Has Got You Covered
January 3rd, 2013
Most of us probably have just one iPad – or maybe two in our households, so managing the chargers is pretty straightforward. But say you run a restaurant, museum, shop or office that’s started to use iPads in your business. How do you charge up a bunch of iPads at once? Well, Kensington has got you covered.
The Charge & Sync Cabinet ($599.99 USD) for iPad can juice up 10 iPads at the same time. Simply side the tablets into the cabinet, and the system will charge the iPad right up. A single power cord charges all the iPads, and there are also built-in USB ports for charge and sync operations. You can stack up to three of these cabinets too, and they each have a cooling fan inside to make sure the iPads don’t get too hot.
In addition, the cabinet has a locking front door, and can be secured using a mounting bracket or security cable, so you don’t have to worry about thieves walking off with 10 iPads at once. It looks like the Charge & Sync Cabinet currently only supports iPads with the 30-pin dock connector though, so if you’ve got iPad 4’s or later, you’ll have to look elsewhere for a charging solution – until Kensington releases Lightning adapter cables.
