Laptop Charging Case Version 2.0
April 4, 2016
May 5, the IEI team will be taking to Liberia five of their newly-designed “second generation” laptop trunks. The trunk holds 20 energy-efficient HP Stream 11 laptops, along with the RACHEL-Plus server. All the devices will run for 8-10 hours on a charge. This enables the laptops to be set up in a classroom and used all day without the need for electrical outlets, wiring, and charging cords. At the end of the day the laptops are placed back in the case which is plugged into a wall outlet or generator for recharging. The trunk has wheels, and can be easily moved to a secure location after each school day.
