Bretford PowerSync Cart for iPad with Lightning Connector

  • Overview

    Bretford's PowerSync Cart provides full 2.1A DC charging power to any iPad or iPad mini with Lightning connector. And when it's connected to your Mac, the cart automatically switches over to a USB 2.0 mode for simultaneous syncing.

    Sync 30 iPad devices via one USB connection

    You can sync up to 30 iPad devices with iTunes, moving all your selected apps, books, videos, music, and Podcasts to each iPad, according to your specifications.

    LEDs for monitoring charge status

    While the iPad devices are being charged, the Charge Status LEDs on on top of the cart indicate the charge status of each group of 10 iPad devices. When all the iPads in a given group are charged, the corresponding LED will change from amber to green.

    Laser-cut numbering system

    The laser-cut numbering system helps you keep your iPad devices organized in the cart. Each slot includes a USB to Apple Lightning Connector cable for charging and syncing.

    Works with Mac OS X and iTunes

    To enable syncing, simply configure each iPad in your collection to sync with iTunes, place it in the cart, and connect the included Lightning connector cable. When all your iPad devices are configured, you can connect the cart to your Mac, and sync all 30 devices with iTunes.

    Designed for use worldwide

    The cart is designed and certified for use in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. It will be available in additional locations later in 2011.

      Very disappointed in the PowerSync Cart

      We purchased the Bretford PowerSync Cart 2 years ago with the assumption that it would make managing a set of 15 iPads very easy. My biggest complaint is that We purchased the Bretford PowerSync Cart 2 years ago with the assumption that it would make managing a set of 15 iPads very easy. My biggest complaint is that the cables that connect the cart to the individual iPads for syncing are way too short. The slightest movement and the cables come loose and interrupt the syncing process. And maybe it's just me and a poor understanding of how the syncing process works, but it just seems very cumbersome to me. If I could go back 2 years, I would not purchase such a cart.

      Will not work with majority of iPad cases

      We purchased Bretford carts with 30-pin connectors in the past and they work great. We purchased 4 PowerSync carts for $3000 each, and the lightning connector i We purchased Bretford carts with 30-pin connectors in the past and they work great. We purchased 4 PowerSync carts for $3000 each, and the lightning connector is at a 90 degree angle, so it will not fit most iPad protective cases. Bretford says they have no other type of cable, and otterbox is only now starting to create protective cases that will work with this cart. For these carts to now work, I have to purchase $1500 worth of cables and install them (to be fair, Bretford did say they would help install them, which is of limited value to us). This is a prime example of vendors such as Apple, Bretford and Otterbox not communicating with each other at all regarding product development, and the customer has to pay the price for the lack of professionalism and due diligence on the vendors part.
