Device Charging and
Charge and safely sanitize your devices at one time
Ozone kills viruses and bacteria 50 times more effectively—and 3,000 times faster—as compared to chlorine, and with no poisonous residue.
Ozone is a powerful weapon to combat germs and viruses, other flu’s and even the common cold, utilizing full coverage in an environment more efficiently and safely than with UV technology.
Decontamination is quick: the ozone generator is activated and medical-grade sanitizing is done within 30 minutes, resulting in clean oxygen once the full cycle is complete.
Sanitize, store, secure, charge and deploy up to 40 laptops, Chromebooks, and tablets.

AC Smart Bar
For budget-minded consumers, EarthWalk labs can be configured with AC power outlets in each storage compartment for use with each device’s AC adapter. but this is no basic power bar; EarthWalk has staggered the sockets in a zig-zag formation, ensuring that adapters will not block other sockets. NOTE: When using AC adapters to charge devices’ internal batteries, it is possible that all devices may not simultaneously charge. Depending on your device, this solution may require an electric timer to safely switch between groups of devices to prevent overloading the electrical circuit.
Digital AC-SMART Switching System
Deployments using devices’ AC adapters for charging can be configured with EarthWalk’s Digital AC-SMART Switching system. This system can auto-sense the amount of electrical draw required by each device’s AC adapter and safely switch between groups of devices to prevent overloading the electrical circuit. The digital smart switching system will monitor and continue increasing the number of devices that are being simultaneously charged to help shorten the total lab charging cycle.
Pre-Wired Solutions for USB Type-C
USB-C is the latest standard in charging portable devices, and EarthWalk has you covered. We can pre-wire your carts and stations with our premium 45-watt USB-C PD adapters or you can supply us with your existing AC adapters—either way we’ll take care of the wiring headache for you. Literally plug-n-play as soon as your order is delivered to you. Combine USB-C with our AC-SMART system, and we can provide managed charging power for all of your devices from a single power cord, charging all your devices as quickly as possible and eliminating the worry of overloading your electrical circuits.
iCharge – Powered USB Charging for iPads, tablets or USB-C devices
Select EarthWalk’s iCharge package and create the perfect charging solution. The iCharge solution features a high-efficiency central power supply system with ten USB 2.4A charging ports. Additional iCharge systems can be daisy-chained to increase system capacities. Pre-installed USB, USB-C or Lightning data cables in each storage compartment make deployment and support super convenient.
HE-Z – High Efficiency Charging System+
This patented system provides the most energy-efficient and easy approach to charging groups of laptops+—no AC adapters needed! EarthWalk’s High Efficiency (HE) charging integrates a central power supply and control circuit board system to distribute simultaneous power to every device with up to 85% more energy efficiency than charging with AC Adapters. HE-Z charging cables can be easily swapped when devices are changed or updated and this system also allows multiple brands of devices to be stored and charged in one cart.

CleanZone Sanitation – EarthWalk utilizes ozone technology to safely and efficiently kill germs, viruses and bacteria on all devices inside the cart. Decontamination is a quick cycle and there is no chemical residue: Ozone dissipates back to oxygen. Can fully sterilize up to 40 devices more efficiently than UV or chlorine/chemicals.
Integrated Wireless Packages
EarthWalk carts can be custom configured to integrate additional wireless access points or router systems. This system can provide complete wireless access or help enhance your existing infrastructure by providing additional access as the wireless clients are moved from location to location. The system provides Ethernet uplink to the cart and any required hardwired to wireless switching component. EarthWalk can supply the wireless components or custom integrate any specific or existing electrical components your network may require.
Integrated Hardwired Ethernet Packages
Provide your IT staff with the tools and convenience they need to deploy and support your mobile computer clients. Choose the EarthWalk integrated Ethernet package and deliver remote imaging or software updates to all client machines while they are secured and charging inside the cart. This system includes the installation of all network cabling and switching in the lab of your choice and features accessible network uplinks, integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet Switching, and an available Ethernet cable in each laptop storage slot. EarthWalk can supply or custom integrate any specific or existing electrical components your network may require.

What is Ozone? Why is better than UVC?
O3 is classified as an oxidizing and disinfecting agent and is an extremely effective germicide against viruses and bacteria. Oxidation occurs when ozone molecules encounter oxidizable substances, including microorganisms (viruses, molds, and bacteria). The unstable third single oxygen atom bonds to the material it contacts, destroying the virus particles. Virus particles, unlike many other microorganisms, are not able to repair oxidative damage, and are therefore more susceptible to oxidative antimicrobial action. Thus, O3 is used globally to sanitize and disinfect drinking water, in food manufacturing and processing, in healthcare facilities and labs as well as in other industries.
SARS-CoV-2 (responsible for COVID-19) is an enveloped virus, which means the structure of these viruses include a lipid envelope and are easily susceptible to destruction by disinfectants including O3. Ozone readily oxidizes the lipid envelope, changing its structure or destroying it. Other virus families are also destroyed by direct damage via ozone to capsid proteins and nucleic acids.
Ozone, unlike UV technology (typically UVC), is a heavy gas that can penetrate every corner of the EarthWalk carts & stations—disinfecting all of the devices effectively. UV sterilization is really only effective when the light is able to directly reach surfaces.
The unstable O3 molecules (also known as tri-atomic oxygen) have a short lifespan. The gas decomposes and forms oxygen, leaving no harmful residue or odor after disinfection. Its use inside a contained space (such as EarthWalk carts and stations) is ideal and effective. Ozone generators produce O3 with extreme high voltages. When the ozone generator is deployed inside the Earthwalk cart/station, make sure the sealed door is kept closed until the entire disinfection cycle is completed. As with other sterilization methods, strict standards are to be followed for safety reasons.
