New Rugged iPad Mini Case Offers Protection and Fits In Bretford PowerSync Carts

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 04, 2013

Schools face many challenges with iPad deployments, with damaged and lost devices being the most common, and some of the rugged iPad cases do not fit in the school’s Bretford PowerSync charging carts. Worry no more, says iGearUnlimited, a leading manufacturer of iPad cases for schools – the company’s Slim Tough Case offers super rugged protection and is designed to fit in all charging carts.

It’s been reported that iPads deployed in schools suffer damage rates of up to 10%-15%, with accidental dropping being the most common. Schools that purchased rugged iPad cases face another problem — the cases are so thick that they don’t fit in charging carts, such as the Bretford PowerSync line. iGearUnlimited designed a new product to address both problems – iGear’s Slim Tough Case features a multi-layer construction that’s supremely shock absorbent, a polycarbonate hard shell inner jacket that offers impact protection, and a slim profile to fit in the most popular charging carts.

According to an article published on Billings Gazette – "About 5 percent of the iPads purchased for school students and staffers in Powell Wyoming have had to be repaired or replaced since they were introduced last year. Eighty-one iPads worth $40,192 were damaged. Of those, seven belonged to teachers and administrators and 74 were assigned to students. The most common problem was broken screens.”

Kids can be rough with their toys, and that can cause a problem for schools deploying iPads in the classroom. Recent reports show that up to 15% of iPads are damaged within the first 2 weeks if not used in a protective case. Most of the damage is due to accidental dropping, leaving bent corners, scratched sides, and most commonly, broken screens.

Some schools are dealing with the problems by purchasing a protection plan from Apple, or purchasing cases for their iPads, or both. To ensure the deployment goes smoothly and minimize delays and administrative burdens, the best practice proved to be using a rugged case that protects the iPad no matter what happens.

But rugged cases may be too bulky for large scale deployments – schools often use charging carts to manage all the iPads, and the case must fit in the slots of the charging cart. For many months, schools had to choose between good protection and easy management.

The Slim Tough Case offers multi-layer protection using a combination of (1) an outer soft rubber shell, (2) an inner polycarbonate hard case, and (3) a slim profile that’s designed to fit the Bretford charging carts. This case is supremely shock absorbent and since all buttons and ports are tightly sealed, the Slim Tough Case provides rain and splash protection, while giving the user full access at the same time. A built-in stand offers a convenient way to stand the iPad in both orientations, for screen sharing or moving watching.

“iGear’s Slim Tough Case is perhaps the perfect case for schools,” says Jimmy Sun, president of “It offers excellent protection for the iPad while works with the most popular charging carts.”

The Slim Tough Case is available from Schools should contact the company directly for educational discounts. iGear also makes a custom photo case for the iPad, popular with schools’ sports teams and other activity groups.
