What are the differences between a consumer tablet and a rugged tablet?
Isn’t a consumer tablet in a rugged case the same as a purpose-built rugged tablet? It’s not that simple.
A purpose-built rugged tablet is designed from the beginning to operate as a functional data collection device and offer integrated rugged protection without the need of a protective case.
Juniper Systems’ family of rugged tablets are all built for data collection in harsh environments.

What’s the battery life on a rugged tablet?
Rugged tablets are mostly used in the field and in harsh environments. The job can’t be done if your rugged tablet can’t last as long as you do. Each Juniper Systems rugged tablet is designed to last all-day on a single charge. For those extra long days hot-swapping batteries keeps the work going.
On Mesa 3 Windows the included battery has an operation time of 8–10 hours and is removable. An optional internal battery adds an additional 4–5 hours of battery life to the device and allows for the removable battery to be hot-swapped.
On Mesa 3 Android the included battery has an operation time of 10-12 hours and is removable. An optional internal battery adds an additional 5-6 hours of battery life to the device and allows for the removable battery to be hot-swapped.
