REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kensington, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple.™ mobile accessories, today announced the next generation of its Charge & Sync Cabinet, Universal Tablet, providing a safe place for schools and libraries to store and charge up to 10 tablets at a time.
The new design features wider bays to accommodate storing and charging tablets kept in protective rugged cases — like the Kensington BlackBelt™ or SafeGrip™ cases for tablets — ensuring they are always ready for students to use in the classroom. Kensington has also further enhanced the Charge & Sync Cabinet, Universal Tablet with new iOS and Android compatibility, a tamper-resistant, retracting door, and master key capability.
Nearly 9 million students utilize school-issued tablets. As the deployment of tablets in schools increases, so does the demand for smart accessories to power and protect this investment. The Charge & Sync Cabinet, Universal Tablet is built to be secure and take up little space, eliminating the hassle of wheeling storage carts from classroom to classroom.
"Our new Charge & Sync Cabinet reflects feedback from educators and IT managers," said Judy Barker, Senior Global Product Manager at Kensington. "This new model solves a big pain point for our users — making sure that tablets are always ready for student learning with uniform content and a full charge — without having to remove the rugged cases used in many classrooms."
