And I need to be able to install 17 a day without it taking too much time.
PM sent.

This 4 port charging station we found (and decided would be most user friendly) has all (4) USB ports rated at 2.1 amps.
This is a real good idea™

Another problem is the iPad Air is a 15W Charger

Just wait, they're due to announce the next generation of phones in a couple of weeks, and the next iPads about a month after that. (Based on the rumours)

The iPad Air and Retina charger is 12W, not 15W (see Apple Store website). 2.1 amp output will charge the iPad just fine. 5 volt output at 12 watts is 2.4 amps. It may charge a little slower than with a full 2.4 amps, but will be well within an acceptable range.

Gotta give him some time. It's a Friday after all, he's probably left early to pack up the family for a weekend trip.
