Here’s an informative and useful article from The Mobile Generation is Learning, concerning the maintenance of institution-owned sets of PDAs – storing them securely, keeping them charged, and keeping them properly upgraded.
This learning support team customised a large, lockable, metal cupboard by drilling holes for cables and air vents in it and running extension cables to the various shelves.
If you want to attempt something like this, then to reduce problems with the current through the system, design the powerboards to run in parallel, rather than in series (don’t “daisy chain” your powerboards).
Go to the article for more info, as well as information on keeping the PDA software and hardware up-to-date.
