Bretford ships new cart and rollers for iOS devices

Monday, September 9, 2013

Bretford Manufacturing, Inc.®, a U.S. manufacturer of technology-enabled furniture for learning and business environments, is now shipping its high capacity charging cart, the Mobility Cart™ 42 for iPad and iPad mini. Also shipping are the Bretford PowerSync Roller™ 10 for iPad and the PowerSync Roller 20 for iPad mini, which are convenient charging and syncing roller cases. Introduced earlier this year, these products are designed for use in schools, training facilities and other professional organizations with large deployments of iOS devices. They are all currently available for delivery throughout North America.

“With the growing use of Apple devices in education, businesses and healthcare, there is also an increased need to charge, store, secure and transport them,” said Dan Berger, product management team lead for Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. “Since their introduction earlier this year, our new Apple cart and rollers have generated great interest. With their shipping availability, professionals can now specifically choose which product they’d like to use to care for their iOS devices when they are not in use, based on the environment, number of devices and where the devices need to go.”

The Mobility Cart 42 is the highest capacity charging cart for iPad and iPad mini offered by Bretford. Featuring a simple and practical charging system, this cart allows up to 42 iPads to be charged simultaneously and kept secure for one large group or for sharing between smaller groups. The Mobility Cart 42 includes separate locking front and rear compartments to allow users to keep power adapters locked separately from their devices and direct the heat away from the iOS devices. The Mobility Cart family, which also includes solutions for 20 and 30 MacBook computers, incorporates the Bretford Dock & Lock Security Kit that enables the cart to be secured to a fixed, immoveable object during off-hours.

The PowerSync Roller 10 for iPad is compatible with iPad with Retina display and iPad mini. The PowerSync Roller 20 for iPad mini is compatible with iPad mini, iPhone 5, and iPod touch (5th gen). Both products incorporate everything needed for charging and syncing and ship with pre-installed Lightning cables. Each slot in the PowerSync rollers features a charge status LED, providing at-a-glance charge status so professionals know exactly when the devices are ready.

The new cart and rollers all carry certification marks confirming their compliance with IEC 60950, which is the internationally recognized product safety standard for Information Technology Equipment (ITE). The products ship fully assembled.
