Both products will be on display at ISTE 2017 taking place June 25-28 in San Antonio at Belkin's booth #1260 in Exhibit Hall 3.

"We're confident these new products will help transform the modern classroom, improving technology access and efficiency when it comes to device availability, power and protection."
The Store and Charge Go is a compact and convenient storage unit, offering a universal solution to safely stow, charge and distribute multiple classroom devices. The uniquely designed unit can charge up to ten devices – any mix of Chromebooks, laptops, tablets or other mobile devices – simultaneously and is equipped with a base compartment to house charging cables. Five portable trays enable simple and efficient device distribution and collection throughout the classroom. This compact design eliminates wasted classroom space and time spent distributing and retrieving devices from single-storage locations. The Store and Charge Go is offered in two different configurations for seamless integration into a classroom environment: the AC version or the USB version.
The Rockstar 10-Port USB Charging Station features a 10-outlet power hub, designed to work with any combination of USB-charging classroom devices. Smartly designed for active environments, this intelligent multi-charge station is equipped with regional compatibility, surge protection and independent charging. Each port offers up to 2.4 Amps to ensure optimal charging for each classroom device, regardless of the number and size of devices connected.
