More and more teachers are using iPads in the classroom, whether it’s for special projects or for everyday lessons. And when you get that many tablets together — and that many young students who may or may not have perfect charging habits — keeping all the iPads charged throughout the day becomes a huge challenge.

That’s why IPEVO introduced the USB SuperCharger. The USB SuperCharger is a convenient 4-slot charging station that will keep those iPads juiced. Using just a single wall socket, teachers can keep up to 4 iPads charging.

The thing that makes the USB SuperCharger special is that each of its 4 charging slots features a full 2.1 amps. That means the iPads are charging at full speed. You might be familiar with chargers which deliver a weak, slow charge because 2.1 amps is being spread to 2 or more iPads. That’s not the case with the USB SuperCharger. Speed is never compromised.

Given its 4 slots and full charge speeds, the USB SuperCharger is all about smart battery management. You can keep the USB SuperCharger out on a desk or tabletop as a dedicated charging station. Neither the teacher nor the students have to fish around for an extra adapter or hunt for a spare wall socket.

When’s the best time and what’s the best schedule for charging? You’ll quickly discover what works best in your classroom. Keep the iPads plugged in while students are using them, and you’ll never have to worry about dead batteries stopping a lesson. Or, plug the iPads in between activities (or at night) so they never get low. You can even keep a few extra iPads charging on reserve so you can swap out any iPads on low batteries. That way, the lesson is never interrupted.

Through the IPEVO Wishpool program, we learned how teacher Dee Hamlet from St. Joseph Catholic School in Marion, Iowa uses the USB SuperCharger in her classroom:

“Now we are able to use multiple iPads in our classroom throughout the day without worrying about the batteries dying. Charging 4 of my 7 iPads at one time each night is helping free up more iPads for center, group, and individual work. My students are able to create movies, use the web, and interact with one another more on their blog now that they have more iPads available to use each day.”

And here’s how teacher Nancy Hoatson from Sutherland Public School in Nebraska characterized her use of the USB SuperCharger:

“I am astounded by the speed and versatility of the IPEVO USB SuperCharger. I am able to charge four of my iPads at the same time in a fraction of the time it takes to charge one device. I can charge any device that has a USB charger. I have 5 iPads and 25 students and this charger has changed my classroom, making all my resources accessible all day long.”
