One of the hardest parts of preparing for college is figuring out what you need to take. To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of the five best tech accessories every college student should own. These are items that will make life easier for you and increase your productivity.

The Best Tech Accessories for College Students – Our Top 5

1. Kensington® SmartFit® Laptop Riser with Qi Wireless Phone Charging Pad

As useful as laptops are, they do come with their downsides. One of the most prominent is the strain they put on your wrists, neck, and back. As a college student, your laptop is one of the tools you use frequently, putting you at risk.

It’s for this and many other reasons (such as increasing efficiency and reducing the chances of your device heating up) that we have designed our SmartFit Laptop Riser. For the cherry on top, you can also use it to charge your smartphone. Or better yet, connect an uber-ergonomic wireless keyboard for an optimized experience.

2.  Orbit® Wireless Mobile Trackball

Now that you have a laptop riser, what better accessory to compliment it than a trackball – the Orbit Wireless Mobile Trackball in particular.

Trackballs are known to greatly increase your comfort and speed as compared to a mouse or trackpad. Speed is a key factor when it comes to completing your assignments, isn’t it? So, save time and ditch your clunky trackpad for a versatile, mobile, and highly accurate trackball.

3. MicroSaver® 2.0 Portable Keyed Laptop Lock

With the Kensington SD2400T Thunderbolt 3, there’s no fear of downtime due to your devices running out of power. Of course, since your battery status won’t be a cause of concern, you can focus all your attention on what matters most – your studies. It is an essential tech accessory for college.
