Apologies if this has been asked before, 

We are looking to buy a further 48 Chromebook's at the end of this year but really don't want to spend a huge chunk of money on a storage unit, so are thinking about alternatives.

What are people doing to store and charge their Chromebook's each night? Would love to hear some interesting ideas :)

    Hi there. I'm wondering whether anyone in this group is using the Tech Tub from MTA for charging/storing Chromebooks? I'm about to buy a set of 8 for our library and am hoping to find an efficient and inexpensive solution to this. Not sure if it would be able to fit 8 though?

    Have also been looking at a range of DIY alternatives - some of them are really ingenious!

    Hi Rob,

    we ended up with 70 and are using old filing cabinets. The dividers work well to separate, and they fit well, lockable too.


    As to charging - ours are holding charge for 2 days of classroom use, so we just installed lots of powerpoints

    and let the kids charge on the fly; any that forget need to get them charged during breaks. This is working.

    We have converted lockable filing cabinets with dividers and holes for air and power. Also the same with cupboards and put a lock on them.
