Our alternative charging solution that’s specifically geared for multiple device charging is LapCabby’s 32 Vertical. No adjustment necessary, the shelves are built specifically to accommodate a variety of shapes and sizes which saves time and ensures flexibility for possible future device upgrades.
The LapCabby Vertical is available in a range of different sizes, geared to charge and store from 10 devices to 32, up to 17 inches in screen size, in one, easy to move cart. The generous vertical shelves mean that the LapCabby can store devices with or without protective cases.
The LapCabby has also considered it’s total footprint, while large and robust enough to protect your device investment securely this unit comes specially designed with ergonomic handles, rounded corner bumpers and multi-directional, hospital grade, locking wheels to make movement between classrooms as smooth and simple as possible. The reinforced frame is cleverly designed to ensure quiet movement with no ‘rattle’ to ensure other classes are not disturbed when cart is transferred through echoey halls.
The LapCabby has also been built from the ground up to best store and protect devices while in transit. The specially designed cable clips and cable portholes ensure no loose or untamed cables while the smooth slide-out shelves ensure easy access to devices. The fully welded steel frame allows for constant airflow meaning no need for a noisy fan. The LapCabby also comes fitted with a built-in heat sensor that will automatically shut off power if a device overheats or if the interior cart temperature reaches 32C/90F degrees to prevent any possible damage to devices and cables.
The LapCabby is fitted with a Power7 Management System that includes; soft start function measures the in-rush current and prevents overload during start-up by powering up each power strip in 1.5 second intervals; full power-up occurs within 6 seconds; simultaneous charging of all 40 devices; monitoring the current to ensure no over or under charging, and lastly; fuse protection against power surges and overloads. This is a sophisticated timer that can be set to constant charging, cycle charging and can be programmed to a charging schedule (3 schedules, 7 days a week). It’s easy to operate with instructional LED display screen and two push buttons to adjust charging requirements.
The LapCabby requires no installation, simply set up the charging cables using the easy cable management system in the power compartment and it’s ready to use, wheels, handles and shelves are already fitted – just plug in and go. There are also no forms to complete to enable the warranty – each LapCabby comes with a Lifetime Warranty as standard, no need to register or sign up.
For safety and security reasons the power compartment is separate to the main cabinet – a concealed level unlocks the rear power compartment to enable clear access when required but keeps unwanted little hands away from cables most of the time.
