PowerGistics, manufacturer of charging stations for schools, has released its Flex20 Bolt charging station. The Flex20 Bolt is a 20-port USB-C PDU charging station that can power Chromebooks, laptops and tablets.

The Flex20 Bolt comes with 20 USB-C to USB-C cables, meaning schools can send power bricks home with students and still connect the charging tower in classrooms and common areas. The tower design of PowerGistics charging stations like the Flex20 saves space in busy classrooms due to the small footprint. Inside, devices are stored flat and horizontally, protecting them from drops and damage. You can request prices via www.powergistics.com.
