A Charging Cradle is a device that securely holds your phone in place while it charges, also known as an 'Active Mount'. Cradles are powered by a charger that plugs into your car's cigarette lighter power port or with a fixed installation cable. Commercial Charging Cradles can be installed in any vehicle with available dashboard space to fix the Cradle in place, regardless of vehicle manufacture.

51T Charging Solutions supply Charging Cradles and Handheld Device Charging Stations to a range of big brand businesses in the Logistics, Warehousing and Retail industries.


Charging Cradles and Device Charging Stations

A cradle is a device that can be used to charge or store and charge a handheld computer and other mobile devices. These types of device cradles are also called charging cradles, active mounts and device chargers. Popular commercial handheld device manufacturers include Zebra, Honeywell and Samsung, find a 51T charging cradle for your device here.

A commercial grade device charging station is a type of cradle that holds several devices at one time, but it typically lacks data sync capabilities as this reduces IT security risks. Charging Stations are also known as Multi Bay Chargers are a great option if you're not ready to move up to a Charging Cabinet yet. If you have a small number of devices that need to be charged, then this is an essential tool in your arsenal!

Simply, a Charging Cradle is mounted into a vehicle and charges one handheld device and a multi bay charging station can charge a number of devices at once and is typically stored onsite.




Charging Cradle installation vs Device Charging Stations

With Multi Bay Device Chargers no installation is require and the station can be moved to any nearby plug as required.
