The LapCabby Lyte 10 Wall Door

Our alternative charging solution that is specifically geared for multiple device charging is the LapCabby Lyte 10 Wall Door. Absolutely no adjustment or setup is required, 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 Lyte 10 Wall Door is geared to charge and store 10 devices up to 11 inches in screen size, however two alternatives are available; the Lyte 10 Wall Door Universal (takes devices up to 14 inch screen size) and the Lyte 10 Surface Pro (takes devices up to 13 inch screen size). The generous vertical shelves mean that the LapCabby can store devices with or without protective cases. Device adaptors plug into 1 x 10-way power strip designed and manufactured in-house, this allows for any device charged by USB or otherwise can be charged within this unit regardless of make or model.

Cable clip portholes secure cables

The Lyte 10 Wall Door has a narrow, wall-mounted design with overall depth of 7″ (18cm) to save precious floor space in classrooms, hospital wards, warehouses and other busy environments. It’s been specifically built for health, with an ergonomic, easy to clean design and no cooling fan to prevent the spread of any infection. 

The Lyte 10 Wall Door has been built to commercial grade furniture standards, passing tests for durability, stability and weight bearing loads for high impact usage. Top surface overhangs at the rear to allow the top surface to sit flush against the wall but still allowing constant fresh air to circulate through the back of the unit, meaning no need for a noisy fan. The unit is of solid construction meaning devices cannot be seen in any capacity when the cabinet is closed and locked helping to ensure the safety of devices.

The Lyte 10 Wall Door 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, the wall hanging kit (supplied) includes all components need to fix unit securely with instructions– just choose a wall location, plug in and go. There are also no forms to complete to enable the warranty – each LapCabby product comes with a Lifetime Warranty as standard, no need to register or sign up.

By comparison, the Lyte 10 Wall Door is almost 20% cheaper than the Ergotron Zip12, it can also be customised with keypad locks, alternative coloured design and alternative sizes are available.

For safety and security reasons the power compartment is separate to the main cabinet which keeps unwanted hands away from cables preventing damage, loss and theft. The LapCabby Lyte 10 Wall Door, like all LapCabby products, come with lifetime warranty to ensure full customer satisfaction, electric components are also covered for a full 5 years. LapCabby are also known for exceptional customer service and with over 30 years experience and a 24/7 customer support system in place.
