    Question Mobile Tablet Charging Station/Storage

    Hi folks,

    I saw a load of these at BETT, but stupidly didn't take any flyers.

    Basically it's a flight case type box with foam inserts that allows storage of tablets (in this case I need one that does at least 16, for Nexus 7 tablets), but also has a suitable number of USB sockets to charge from.

    It needs to be a case rather than a trolley, so it can be carried up and down stairs. Wheels would be ideal though, like a suitcase.

    Anyone know someone who sells them? My Google-fu isn't finding it.

    TIA

    We've got some of the Loxit ones for 16 iPads. They are blooming heavy when full though - I wouldn't want to carry it up stairs!

    Thanks, that's useful to know! Stairs may well be involved. Do the Loxit cases have wheels at least?

    Yes. The Loxit Charge Connect has decent tough plastic wheels, plenty of carrying handles, and good ventilation. 16 iPads weigh ~10Kg without any sort of case, so a class set is always going to be heavy. I'm glad we have lifts in our building.

    It's a very well designed peice of kit indeed. Based on the classic Pelican case design. Unfortunately these cases are always going to weigh a fair amount when fully loaded. Far lighter than a 75 kilo trolley though!

    I like the look of the iBank8 on the ict-direct website, but typically we have 10 ipad minis that we want to store and charge. I saw the Griffin Multidock 10 Bay at the Bett Show and that would fit the bill nicely but it's 500 compared to the 220 from ict-direct for the 8 bay cabinet. Does anyone have any ideas on alternatives?

    Cheers,
