Six Essential, Affordable, and Intuitive Desktop and Mobile Accessories Keep the Fall Season — and Beyond — Connected, Protected, and Productive

In the spirit of Halloween, Kensington, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple. desktop and mobile computing accessories, today announced a list of products that help users avoid the horror of losing power, a mobile device, or other important items and accessories. The products were selected for their frighteningly straightforward ease of use, affordability, and ability to help users avoid unnerving moments by staying connected and productive while protecting their devices.

To keep Halloween and any time of year from becoming a spine-chilling affair, a robust range of products and accessories from Kensington helps users avoid the loss of their most vital devices — and what powers them:

Kensington KP400 Switchable Keyboard (K72322US; SRP $59.99) – It’s almost spooky how this full-sized versatile keyboard can alternate between wired and Bluetooth connectivity — an invaluable feature when typing on a variety of devices. The KP400 Switchable Keyboard makes it “scary easy” for users to work with a laptop, a tablet, or even a smartphone together, taking productivity to a new level. The keyboard includes a numeric keypad — providing a professional typing experience whether using it with a PC, tablet, or smartphone — and can be powered via either a detachable wired connection through a USB port on a laptop, or with batteries when it’s in Bluetooth mode. Easy installation allows users to start typing in no time at all. And at under $60, it’s a ghostly good deal.

Kensington 10400 USB Mobile Charger (K38219WW; SRP $49.99) and Kensington 5200 USB Mobile Charger (K38220WW; SRP $39.99) – Whether users are working from home or out trick-or treating and need to power a device, the Kensington 10400 Mobile USB Charger and 5200 USB Mobile Charger help keep the season from becoming a nightmare by offering the perfect answer to boost a drained battery. Users will never get caught without power to their phone or tablet, as the 5200 has enough reserve power to fully charge an iPhone® 6 Plus or a Galaxy Sâ5 — and the 10400 can fully charge these devices two times. Ghouls and goblins of all ages will appreciate the stylish aluminum cover finish and 4-LED display on both chargers that conveys how much power is left in the charger. The power bank for both mobile chargers can be used with a wide variety of devices including all Apple® products, most Android smartphones and tablets, and many other USB-charged devices.

Kensington WordLock® Portable Combination Laptop Lock (K64684US; SRP $27.99) – At any time of year, there’s nothing more unnerving than losing a laptop. This special investment needs to be protected, whether on a business trip or attending a harvest festival down the street. The WordLock Portable Combination Laptop Lock helps users protect their device and personal information while on the go. The push-button design offers one-handed operation for easy engagement, while the Kensington T-Bar secures the lock to a laptop. All users need to remember to avoid a fright is one word, as WordLock allows for setting the code with four-letter words making it Easier to Set—Never Forget®. The self-coiling cable stretches to 6 feet to anchor to a desk or fixed structure yet shrinks to 3 inches for easy packing.

Kensington EVAP® Wet Electronics Rescue Pouch (K39723AM; SRP $14.99) – Losing a phone to water damage is a hair-raising experience … but it can be easily avoided with the EVAP Wet Electronics Rescue Pouch. Since studies show that two out of three people will get their smartphone wet — which is particularly easy to do this time of year — Kensington’s EVAP kit is a Fall must-have. And priced at under $15, this simple solution can help users rescue their electronics at a fraction of the cost to replace them.

Kensington Proximo Key Fob Bluetooth® Tracker (K97150US; MSP $39.99) and Kensington Proximo Tag Bluetooth® Tracker (K97151US; MSP $24.99) – Most people feel beyond spooked if they lose their phone — and everything on it. To avoid this fate, Kensington offers the Proximo Key Fob Bluetooth Tracker and the Proximo Tag Bluetooth Tracker — products that can help users find their device or other essential items easily. Both feature an alarm that acts as a 24/7 guardian, sending an alert when the Fob passes a preset distance limit, and an LED visual alert that helps to find keys in the dark. A simple touch on the App screen sounds an alarm to help locate missing items. The Key Fob Bluetooth Tracker has a Smartphone Finder Button that lets users trigger the alarm on their phone even if it’s on vibrate.
