The Bretford Basics 36 Unit Tablet Cart includes a unique "power manager" that works with a standard 15-amp electrical circuit and is designed to analyze power requirements. The system uses a "round robin" charging cycle that constantly evaluates the demand for power from each of the six, six-outlet power strips and concentrates on the devices that need it most. 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.
Cord management in the back of the cart is provided by removable plates with Velcro straps to secure cords and adapters. The interior divider panel separates the cart so that 75% of the cart is dedicated to the computers while the other 25% contains the cables and adapters. Holes in the divider panel allow the cables to pass through to the front of the cart and connect to the computers for charging. The divider panel is both a performance and security feature as it reduces the heat in the front compartment and protects the devices if access is gained through the back panel.
