Bretford Manufacturing, Inc.®, a U.S. manufacturer of technology-enabled furniture for learning and business environments, today introduced its highest capacity charging cart for iPad and iPad mini. Designed to support Apple devices in education, business, healthcare and other professional environments, the Mobility Cart 42 for iPad and iPad mini can charge, store, secure and transport up to 42 iPad and iPad mini devices. The new cart offers a simple and practical charging system, making it ideal for schools, training facilities and other organizations with large deployments of iOS devices.

“We see iPad deployments on the rise in all types of organizations,” explained Dan Berger, product management team lead for Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. “More devices are needed now than just a few short years ago. With this new cart, up to 42 iPads can be charged simultaneously and kept secure for one large group or for sharing between smaller groups. We’ve increased capacity, and at the same time, increased the slot width to accommodate the most popular iPad cases.” Berger noted that the new Mobility Cart 42 for iPad and iPad mini joins the Bretford Mobility Cart family, which includes other solutions for 20 and 30 devices.

All Bretford Mobility Carts, including the Mobility 42 for iPad and iPad mini, feature separate locking front and rear compartments, which allow customers to keep chargers locked separately from their devices and direct the heat from chargers to dissipate away from the iOS devices. The Mobility Cart family of solutions also includes the Bretford Dock & Lock Security Kit that allows the cart to be secured to a fixed, immoveable object during off-hours.

The Mobility Cart 42 for iPad and iPad mini will be shown for the first time at the ISTE Annual Conference and Expo, June 23-26 in San Antonio, Texas (Bretford Booth #13166), and will be available for order starting July 1, 2013, in the U.S. and Canada. This new cart is listed to UL 60950, ships fully assembled and offers the Bretford industry-leading 12-year warranty on the cart and two-year warranty on electrical components.
