An Always-On Carrying Case, the Explorer 4 Work-in Case with Pocket Protects Chromebooks and Laptops to Reduce Repair Costs While Providing Flexible Sizing Options

IRVINE, CA (September 9, 2021)--MAXCases, a leading manufacturer of protective cases and accessories for iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, and tablets, announced that its Explorer 4 Work-in Case for Chromebooks and laptops was recognized with two Tech & Learning Magazine Awards of Excellence for being a 2021 “Best Tool for Back to School” in both Primary and Secondary learning environment categories.

An always-on, work-in case, the Explorer 4 with Pocket provides protection from drops, bumps, and scratches, while doubling as a carrying bag. The fourth generation in the company’s Explorer line, it provides features developed directly from educator feedback, such as improved device stability; molded airflow channels to dissipate heat; a pocket for accessories; and a tamper-resistant interior ID holder. Protective features include a shock-absorbing EVA interior and rigid exterior surrounded with weather-resistant ballistic nylon. The design offers added storage with an elastic exterior pocket that stretches to accommodate accessories and lays flat when not in use to maintain the slim profile.

“As we head into another uncertain year in education, technology will continue to be one of the key drivers for innovation,” says Tech & Learning Group Publisher Christine Weiser. “Our judges chose the winning products recognized here for their versatility, compatibility, value, and ability to help schools solve challenges and support continuous instruction. Congratulations to all of our winners.”

The Explorer 4 with Pocket offers solutions to several challenges faced by educators in today’s environment. Students need functional devices, and device protection continues to be a more critical need as K12 schools face a year that once again may include remote and hybrid learning. A two-in-one case that provides tough protection and a carry case, the Explorer 4 eliminates the need for a second bag, while freeing up backpack space and increasing student compliance, all of which helps keep devices safe, sound and functional.

The Explorer 4 also solves problems related to fit. With flexible sizing, the 11- and 14-inch Explorer 4 Work-In Cases fit a range of popular device sizes. This enables schools to purchase and ensure timely delivery of cases in advance of finalizing their exact device model purchases. This has been particularly beneficial this year as many device shipments have been delayed. Finally, the updated features of the Explorer 4 Work-In Case with Pocket solve a number of problems identified by MAXCases’ customers: device stability, ID tampering, overheating and low-profile accessory storage.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by Tech & Learning with this award, because we designed and intended the Explorer 4 Work-In Case to help educators in many ways,” said MAXCases CEO Al Giazzon. “Among these, this case helps schools reduce costs related to repairs along with reducing the intangible costs of lost learning time and added stress on students and families when devices break. This year in particular, the versatile sizing offered by the Explorer 4 has allowed schools the ability to adjust device models based on best pricing and availability, rather than locking them into a specific device.”

Founded to serve the needs of educators, MAXCases always offers volume discounts and special education pricing. This is unique in an industry where many case suppliers focus on a number of industries and sell to education is an add-on rather than their primary market. The company further meets educator’s needs with 100% U.S.-based customer service provided by a team that is passionate about education..
