The Bretford MDMLAP30-CTAL 30-Unit Laptop/Netbook Storage Cart supports the modern learning environment. This cart features a small footprint, an advanced Power Management System, and desktop cord management system. It comes with lockable front and back doors.
The Power Manager System is designed to continuously charge laptops using only 1 wall outlet. The system uses a Round Robin charging cycle that constantly evaluates the demand for power and concentrates on the devices that need it the most. The system inherently senses when batteries are nearing a full charge and automatically reduces power as required. The power manager not only prevents circuit tripping but also allows each set of device batteries to cool down between charging cycles, thereby extending their life.
The cart comes with 6-outlet power strips plugged into the power manager, which uses a standard 15 A wall outlet to regulate power in the cart. It is attached to the upper back left section of the interior cabinet and is accessed through the rear doors. The system includes LED indicator lights and 1 auxiliary outlet at the side of the cart to plug in a video projector or printer. Since the power manager dedicates power to the auxiliary outlet when in use, the risk of tripping the circuit is eliminated. The power management unit is overload protected and also includes a 9' (2.74 m) power cord. There is a divider panel that separates the computer / battery from the transformer, minimizing the transformer's heat impact on the battery; thus cooler batteries last longer.
There are locking slots in the front of the cart, which positions the cords so that they can be easily plugged into the device. The back of the cart features the removable cord management system.
Each cart has 2 shelves with individual laser-printed numbers for identification on every device slot. They also include full-access doors in the front for students and a full-access rear door for the person operating the cart. A unique locking handle can be opened using either a re-programmable combination or a key. This cart is UL60950 certified for safety of technology equipment.
