For the aiShell system there are a variety of charging options; a simple aiShell for typical user can be turned into a professional industrial iPad. The standard solutions are listed as follows. Please contact us directly if you have special needs.
Use of the Apple Lightning cable
For private users the option of simply charging the iPad inside the case using Apple's standard Lightning cable is usually sufficient. To do this, the supplied waterproof plug is simply opened, and the cable to charge the iPad plugged in. The system is not waterproof during charging operation. The case is only waterproof again after the connector is pulled out and the plug inserted. For charging only once a day this amount of effort is bearable.
Charging – possible even under water!
If it is necessary to charge the iPad while it is enclosed waterproof in the case, the first available option is the charging connector. It is screwed to the case, and on one end it has a USB (male) connector, which can be connected to the Apple adapter. Tools are not required.
This is the option that tends to be chosen by sailors who screw on the connector only once a day.
The end of the cable with the USB connector is not waterproof.
Car cradle connector
For professional uses there is the car cradle connector. It is permanently screwed waterproof to the case. With this accessory the aiShell can be plugged into the following different charging stations and charged there. Once the car cradle connector has been screwed to the aiShell, the iPad cannot be removed anymore.
