I work at a school and part of my duties is to help out with IT. We need more ipad chargers and the deputy who manages the budget is leaning towards official Apple chargers ($30 each!) because of insurance issues. The idea is that if a fire breaks out and the charger is at fault, then school insurance would cover it. There seems to be a fear that non-official chargers would break policy and so we would be out however much in damages. My common sense says that's understandable, but ridiculous, because chargers sold locally must comply with Australian electrical standards, whatever they are. So my goal is to buy multiport chargers and cables for a set of 4 or 5 ipads for the price of just 1 official one, without the need to worry about insurance. The other benefit is that it's 1 plug 5 chargers instead of 1 plug 1 charger. Some classes are still using old buildings that are up to 100 years old, so power points are scarce. Can anyone share their opinions or expertise on this matter?
