Frequently Asked Questions About Our Charging Lockers For Laptops, Tablets & Chromebooks

Learn more about our TechGuard Connect charging lockers.

A charging locker is a secure storage unit equipped with electrical outlets or USB ports that allows individuals to safely charge smartphones, tablets, laptops, work scanners, and other handheld devices while stored in the locker.

This type of charging solution can be implemented in many industries, and organizations including schools, banks, and businesses.

Bretford laptop charging lockers are very easy to install and operate. Our lockers have three different modes that you can use depending on your specific needs.


  • Assigned mode: In this mode, users must be assigned to a specific locker bay. Users can use either an RFID or PIN authentication to access their locker bay.
  • Shared mode: Allows users to temporarily select any available locker for one-time use.
  • Check-In, Check-Out (CICO) Mode: Allows admins to assign Assets into specific locker bays, allowing for self-service loaning of devices to certain users.

You can learn more about how these modes work by visiting the resources section of the locker you are interested in, by checking our YouTube profile, or by calling us at 1 800 521 9614.

TechGuard is simply Bretford's line of charging locker solutions. 

Our TechGuard Connect lockers work together with our cloud-based portal, allowing for efficient and reliable management of users interacting with the lockers.

Our lockers offer several advantages that make them an excellent choice for secure mobile device storage.


  • Keyless access for greater convenience and to reduce the risk of key loss
  • Built using high-quality USA-sourced steel for durability and longevity
  • Made in the USA, which guarantees compliance with strict quality standards
  • 7-year electrical and mechanical warranty
  • Customizable hardware configurations
  • We offer you the possibility to choose from 16 colors and add your own logo
  • Each locker offers ample space for adding network routers
  • We provide a cloud-based platform for easy and efficient user management
  • Several access modes to accommodate different needs

We have lockers of up to 10 bays and 5 bays. If you want to charge more devices at the same time, check out our charging stations, or charging carts.

All our products are UL 60950-1 certified, which guarantees the highest security standards in the industry.


In addition, depending on how the locker is configured, the user can only have access via RFID or PIN authentication to prevent theft of mobile devices stored in the chromebook charging lockers.

Our tablet charging lockers come fully assembled so you can focus on what matters most to your organization instead of worrying about assembling a complex product.
