If you haven't already seen our blog on wall mount your iPad, check out our Tech Corner post on picking your PoE for your mounted iPad.

By the way, if you're concerned about having an iPad always charging, there's good news.  iOS 11.3 now has a feature integrated into the software that protects the iPad battery when it is always charging.  Check out their help desk info here!
