New Rugged G3 Case Protects the iPad and Fits in Schools’ Bretford Charging Carts

Share Article

It has been reported that iPads deployed in schools suffer damage rates of up to 10%-15%, with broken screens being the most common. The iGear Slim Tough Case G3 eliminates this problem, featuring a multi-layer construction that’s supremely shock absorbent, a scratch-resistant lens that protects the iPad’s glass screen, while keeping its thin profile that allows it to fit in the popular Bretford charging cart.

The iPad Slim Tough Case G3 is designed with schools’ needs in mind. It offers all the features that technology directors ask for, and fits in the Bretford and other 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 which can leave bent corners, scratched sides, and most commonly, broken screens.

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

Just because a case claims to be rugged doesn’t mean it will protect the device from daily use and abuse. Schools that bought what they thought were rugged cases are getting mixed results, too. According to Cathrine Butler-Olimb, District Technology Coordinator at Manitou Springs School District of Colorado, “We are using Gumdrop this year, and are having major problems with broken screens.”

One company put its product through the “ultimate drop test”. An iGear Slim Tough Case protected the iPhone from a 20-foot free fall to a paved driveway. The phone escaped without a scratch, and was recording video the whole time! Watch the drop test video here:

The STC G3 offers multi-layer protection using a combination of (1) an outer soft rubber shell, (2) an inner polycarbonate hard case, and (3) a clear lens which covers the screen. This case is supremely shock absorbent and allows the user full access at all times. The built-in kickstand is reinforced with stainless steel pivots and slides, making it virtually unbreakable.

Another unique feature of the Slim Tough Case is the customization option. Using a Tough Skin decal, schools can print full-color logo artwork, asset tracking ID and barcode, and other information for each iPad, making the management of multiple devices tremendously easy.

“The iPad Slim Tough Case G3 is designed with schools’ needs in mind,” says Jimmy Sun, president of “It offers all the features that technology directors ask for, and fits in the Bretford and other charging carts.”
