    We use these Loxit Lapbank iPad Charge Trolley 32 | iPad Trolley | iPad Cart | Loxit

    Awesome build quality, the non-sync models are much cheaper but they're still a significant cost.

    We've got one of these and does the job nicely.

    Cheaper than most of it's competitors.

    Lapsafe everytime. With iPads I would not go for anything else apart from sync and charge with Mac. Try updating 30 iPads to ios... over wifi. firstly it will take forever, also most proxies throw a wobbly. Configurator, Mac, sync and charge trolley is the dream ticket for iPad management.

    Hi @RabbieBurns I'm familiar with all of the suggestions made and would have no problem recommending all of them; The Loxit for true mobility, The Lapsafe for incredible build quality, the TabCabby for customization, and another contender I'd point you in the direction of would be the Isis iPad Charge and Sync Trolley for value for money; Isis iPad Charge & Sync Trolley | ISIS Concepts

    We love the Loxits, they're incredibly well built! Pricey, but worth it IMO.

    The Tabcabby is a great budget solution, Not as secure as it's competitors, but it makes up for it by being nice and cheap!

    We use the logotrons which either come as charging only or sync & charge. Decent build quality except for the kettle lead which will pop out very easily if pulled. Putting it back in isn't as easy as it's sits behind a panel that you have to open with a hex key.
    Overall, they're ok. I wouldn't buy another.

    We have gone for 3 of these to start with,
    Griffin MultiDock - 10 Bay (GA38330) - www.misco.co.uk

    They are great, you need some short charging cables to make a tidy setup though.

    We prefer the PCLocs iPad Sync and Charge units - iPad Sync & Charge Archives | PC LocsPC Locs

    We have also have a Griffin multi-dock and that works fairly well, although it can't sync AND charge at the same time. It can sync OR charge, but not simultaneously.

    Also, we have one Gilkon sync and charge trolley, but these aren't nearly as well designed or built as the PCLocs units and I wouldn't buy another one.

    Can't believe the Aussies have kept these a secret for so long!! We have stairs everywhere so the basket concept is perfect for us! Otherwise any toploading case that has USB ports rather than 230v power strips inside (urgh)
