The Pitfalls of Buying Imitation Laptop Charging Trolleys
LapSafe® is the leader in its field! The original innovator of the Mentor™ laptop charging trolley, LapSafe® created a concept that would change the face of ICT delivery, making anytime, anywhere learning a reality.
Too often today we see clone-styled products in the market which leave a lot to be desired in terms of KEY DESIGN CRITERIA. These “copy laptop charging trolleys” are most often produced by general manufacturers of security cupboards or lockers where the main considerations are cost of manufacture and sale price. Educational establishments looking for a cheaper solution should be aware that “copy laptop charging trolleys” cannot be compared to LapSafe® as equals.
Purporting to deliver the equivalent “laptop charging trolley” at a cheaper price, these manufacturers use ambiguous and confusing terminology (often incorrectly mimicking our own) in their product descriptions and brochures in an effort to convince the customer that they are buying a better value for money product.
All our products are designed from the outset to be fully CE certified and compliant with all current applicable standards. The security of the ‘CE’ marking can be found on every one of our products produced over the last ten years.
With the need for value for money and the overwhelming level of confusing ‘brochure spin’, where should educational establishments draw the line between quality, security and price? Furthermore what should they be looking for when choosing storage and charging for their vital ICT tools?
LapSafe® Products was born from the IT perspective – as a “total solution” meeting the everyday education requirements for the long term, incorporating sophisticated SAFETY, POWER MANAGEMENT and FUNCTIONALITY.
At LapSafe® we pride ourselves that we are a British manufacturer and that our products are built to last. We strongly believe that we offer the best and safest laptop charging trolleys in the marketplace today.
LapSafe® offers a unique Ultra-Safe power management system that enables up to 40 laptops or up to 60 netbooks to be charged simultaneously, using no time switches or priority charging. All this whilst charging all laptops in the minimum possible time, without overcharging or tripping fuses and providing surge and load protection as standard.
SmartLine™ charging technology does not require the use of AC Adaptors, ensuring that no student comes into contact with 240 volt power, providing an ultra-safe solution for the classroom. The user simply plugs the low voltage DC connector directly into the laptop’s own power socket, greatly speeding up the process of managing laptop ‘setup’ and ‘breakdown’ at each end of the lesson.
SmartLine™ proves much more energy efficient than the traditional use of AC Adaptors, making it the ‘greener’ option to charge laptops or netbooks. These reasons are why more than 78% of our customers choose their cabinets to be configured with SmartLine™.
Heat created by charging multiple laptops in a confined space can be immense. The temperature in all our Mentor™ charging cabinets is controlled via a thermostat that automatically switches on the fans at a predetermined temperature, only when needed.
Our laptop charging trolleys are among the strongest on the market with a fully welded chassis and Enhanced Door Security, featuring: high security locks, anti-jemmy plates and reinforced steel doors. All this is achieved by ingenious design which keeps the overall cabinet weight down and therefore handling and manoeuvrability up.
LapSafe® is continually developing new innovative products with Security, Sustainability, Functionality and Technology at the forefront. Listening and working with teachers and ICT technicians, we have developed our range of products to the high specification you would expect from choosing any of the products boasting the LapSafe® logo.
