Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
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.”
There had been other reports 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.
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. It’s designed to fit in virtually all popular charging carts, including Bretford, Anthro, Datamation, and others.
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. 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.
