Best Syncing/Charging Cart for Ipad Air 2 with Otterbox Case

by BrendanSteel / September 22, 2016 9:53 AM PDT

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if someone had a recommendation for a syncing/charging cart for 30 iPad Air 2s with Otterbox Defender cases. My organization is looking for something both affordable and built to last. Thank you in advance for your help.

Sorry what is the question here.

The Otterbox is to me the better of many cheap protection systems. I can't see what you are after here.

It may seem like it's expensive but these can save the tablet from an early death. There are now some thousand cases so I doubt anyone can try out that many but if cost is an issue, maybe you should try it without a case? I have owned my 7 inch Nexus for 4 years and it has no scratches or dings. I take care of my stuff.

Looking for chargining/syncing cart reccomendations
by BrendanSteel / September 22, 2016 10:28 AM PDT

We've already decided to use otterbox cases. We're looking for recommendations regarding charging/syncing carts that can hold 30 iPad Air 2s, preferably while they still have their cases on.

Here we had an engineer.

They took a cart and dropped a few 2x4's with rods in them and that left it so each device had a home and the wood is soft so there's no scratches. I should have taken a photo but that is now far away and I don't think I'll be there any time soon.

Have folk forgotten the old saw, drill and word glue systems? (they have)

I don't think you need to buy this. Just make one.

Not Feasible

This is not feasible for my organization, especially considering we need to purchase 9.

Time for the RFQ.

Mind you I was in Massachusetts and there are cabinet shops and more. Just make up your RFQ and get a price.

Remember I did not google this for you. I take such a thing to be something our engineers whipped out in less than a day and for so little we didn't even blink at the cost.

Looking to Buy Pre-Made

Again, we are looking to purchase these items ready-made. We are not looking to have them built or to build them ourselves.
