Kensington Partners with Google’s Works With Chromebook Program to Certify Chromebook-Ready Accessories

Trackballs, mice, and adapters are the first in Kensington’s line of Works With Chromebook-certified accessories.

San Mateo, CA – March 19, 2020Kensington®, the worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals, and The Professionals’ Choice, announced its partnership with Google’s Works With Chromebook Program, which ensures certified accessories work seamlessly with Chromebooks. A Works With Chromebook badge signifies that a product has been certified by Google engineers to meet Chromebook compatibility standards. Six Kensington accessories have received certification and will feature a badge on product packaging; the Kensington website; and on Kensington’s Amazon, Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, and Walmart web pages. 

Kensington’s first Works With Chromebook-certified accessories include the Mouse for Life Corded (K76800WW, SRP $9.99) and Mouse for Life Wireless (K76801WW, SRP $19.99). Both are significantly quieter than a standard mouse, with a high-definition optical sensor (1000 DPI), three button/scroll wheel design, and an ambidextrous, contoured shape for either right-handed or left-handed users. The Mouse for Life Corded provides a reliable wired USB connection, while the Mouse for Life Wireless offers 2.4GHz wireless freedom with a storable nano receiver. 

Chromebook users can glide effortlessly through web pages and documents with Kensington’s Orbit Wireless Trackball Mouse (K77600WW, SRP $49.99), which features unique touch scrolling along with a compact 32mm ball, ambidextrous design, and 2.4GHz wireless with storable nano receiver. 

Kensington’s Mouse-in-a-Box USB (K72356US, SRP $12.99) offers reliable mouse control with an optical sensor and scroll wheel, comfortable shape for right- or left-handed users, and simple USB plug-and-play installation.

Easily connect your Chromebook with a 4K monitor, TV, or projector with Kensington’s USB-C 4K HDMI Adapter (K38675WW, SRP $32.99), or get full 1080p HD resolution from your Chromebook to an external display with Kensington’s USB-C HD VGA Adapter (K38676WW, SRP $32.99). Both adapters support extended or mirror modes, and plug-and-play installation. 

Kensington is proud to be a Works With Chromebook partner. These trackballs, mice, and adapters are the first Kensington products to be certified, and Chromebook users can look for the Works With Chromebook badge on future accessories as well.
