    Lightbulb Charging Nintendo DS's

    We have about 30 Nintendo DS's in school and half the time they are not charged for lessons because simply, they are never put on charge. Does anyone else have these in school and how do you go about charging them?

    I've thought of something along the lines of a mini laptop trolley for them but this could cost alot of ££.

    Im not in school everyday so can not manage this myself so it needs to be simple enough for staff to use.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    We don't have any here, but i bought USB chargers for my kids at home, maybe a powered USB hub to charge them using 1 mains socket rather than having lots of mains adapters which would then take up less space ?

    That's not a bad idea. I'll look into doing this. I like it.

    Thanks,

    What about this? A 32 point USB charging station.

    I'm liking that. It's just a case if the school will splash out on something like that.

    Thanks,

    It is a tad expessive, but I suspect that as time goes on will have more and more useage as devices increasingly become charged via USB.
