The iPad Slim Tough Case G2 is designed with school’s needs in mind. Our Hot Spare Warranty is an industry exclusive - it completely eliminates headaches associated with warranty claims and make school staff’s life super easy.

Many companies make iPad cases for schools, but only iGear offers a warranty that’s designed to make life easy for school’s support staff. Traditionally, to file a warranty claim, the school would have to call the manufacturer, get an RMA number, ship back the damaged product, and wait for the company to send a replacement. Even though the product is under warranty, the cost associated with warranty claims is high, due to factors such as shipping costs, logistics to manage such claims, lost time during which the iPad is not protected, etc. iGear’s Hot Spare Warranty is about to change all that.

Kids are tough with their toys. No matter how rugged an iPad case is, kids will find a way to break it. With the Hot Spare Instant Replacement Warranty, the company would send an additional 10% of the order quantity for use as “hot spare” warranty units. When a warranty claim is required, the school’s IT staff can instantly replace the damaged unit with a new one, without worrying about sending anything back or wait for a replacement. No phone calls, no paperwork, no shipping back and forth. If there are any unused warranty units left, the school is welcome to keep them, no need to ship back to iGear. And best of all, this program is available at no additional cost.

The Slim Tough Case is already one of the favorites for large scale deployments. It offers multi-layer protection using (1) an outer soft rubber shell, (2) an inner polycarbonate hard case, (3) a built-in clear screen protector, and (4) 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 works in both vertical and horizontal orientations. It’s designed to fit in virtually all popular charging carts, including Bretford, Anthro, Datamation, and others.

A rugged case is a must for schools. 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.”

In a survey conducted by iGearUnlimited of K-12 schools across the country, the company asked participants to name the most needed features of an iPad case for schools. The answers didn't surprise anyone:
1. A rugged case that can protect the iPad from daily use and abuse
2. Not too bulky – need to fit in the popular Bretford charging cart and kids' backpack
3. Built-in screen protector – easy to use, always on, no hassle protection of the iPad’s screen
3. Built-in kick-stand that works in both vertical and horizontal orientations
4. Trackable – school’s asset ID need show as a trackable barcodes on each case
5. Customizable – schools love to show their logo on each iPad case
6. Low cost – get the maximum amount of protection and features for the least amount of money

An overwhelming majority voted iGear's Slim Tough Case as their iPad case of choice because it's the only iPad case on the market designed to satisfy the needs of schools.

In a recent YouTube video, the company’s Slim Tough Case was put through a 20ft drop test from a second floor window to a driveway. The iPhone escaped without a scratch, while recording video the whole time. See drop test video here. The same case design and level of protection is carried over to the iPad line as well.

Another unique feature of the Slim Tough Case 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 managing multiple devices super easy.
