A Cost-Effective, Versatile Charging Solution for up to 16 Devices
Tallevast, FL.—January 20, 2017—JAR Systems has announced the Essential 16 charging station, a wall- mountable charging solution designed to solve common issues across classrooms that can easily manage 16 devices. The charging station features a compact, lightweight modular design that mounts on classroom walls or desktops and will see its premiere at TCEA 2017. This new solution will be showcased at booth #2338 at the Austin Convention Center from February 7 – 9.
“At JAR Systems, we often hear from schools that want to implement wall-mountable charging stations or cabinets, but they are dissatisfied with their options because they are too heavy or cumbersome to actually hang on the wall, they do not make sense cost-wise, they are inconvenient to service in the classroom, and a number of other reasons,” said Axel Zimmermann, the company’s president. “We designed the Essential 16 Charging Station to address these issues with a combination of affordability and versatility that provides high value for schools.”
Security, flexibility, and ease of use for teachers, technicians, and students are at the forefront of the Essential 16. The included locking system prevents devices from being removed while providing an open design that easily allows teachers to see if all of the mobile devices have been returned. At just 45 pounds, the charging station can be installed by only one person. Installing charging cables is just as easy, as the AC adapters and extra cable length are stowed in a lockable compartment beneath the shelf that remains accessible from the front. When extra space is needed, the foldable chassis can conveniently remain flat against the wall by removing the tray, so it is temporarily out of the way without having to completely dismount the charging station.
The Essential 16’s versatility does not end at its design. The charging station has adjustable configurations to suit a range of devices, including Chromebooks, tablets, and notebooks, while its flexibility makes it adaptable to changing technology plans and needs. The Essential 16 can even utilize one Intelligent Charging System to manage the power needs for up to four charging stations at once. This in-demand quality is well suited to central charging locations and can handle up to 64 devices more cost effectively than other power management solutions.
At less than $19 per device, this solution is one of the most cost-effective wall-mountable charging stations available. It even costs less than providing protective cases for sending devices home with students. The Essential 16 costs under $300 and also ships to schools as a convenient, low-cost small parcel. Interested parties should contact JAR Systems at (866) 393-4202. Due to limited quantities and a high level of interest for the 2017 Spring semester, reservations are now accepted for the first available charging stations.
