3 Go-To Surface Go Accessories

  • October 16, 2018

Are you excited about the prospects of using the extremely-mobile Microsoft Surface Go?

If so, you’ll be even more excited when you understand how the three best Surface Go accessories on the market right now can give you an even greater experience, no matter what you’ll be using your new computer for.

Adds-Ons Make Everything Better

Often times, the standard option is just fine.

For example, most of us are content flying economy class and wouldn’t think of spending more for business.

Of course, other times, add-ons make all the difference.

You might not need every extra feature on the list, but if you’re a music-lover, it might be worth it to add Bose speakers to your new car.

Add-ons tend to be particularly popular when it comes to technology. For one thing, an add-on can greatly improve a device’s capabilities and enhance its potential. Depending on your options for such accessories, two devices can be modified to the point that they hardly resemble each other anymore.

For instance, an iPhone can easily be transformed into a home and personal security system or a handheld video game controller or even a device to measure the wind.

So, sure, sometimes the default option is sufficient, but when it comes to technology, add-ons are a simple way to customize your experience based on your unique needs.

3 Surface Go Accessories for an Even Better Experience

As we mentioned at the very beginning, Surface Go accessories can take the already impressive device and make it even more impressive. While the following three Surface Go accessories on this list each offers different benefits, combined, they will greatly enhance what you’re able to do with your computer.

1. BlackBelt Rugged Case for Surface Go

 

One potential drawback of having such a mobile-friendly laptop-replacement is that your Surface Go is going to be exposed to more potential risks. Just carrying it to class or through the airport could mean you accidentally drop it on a hard surface with a good amount of momentum behind it.

That’s why one of the most important Surface Go accessories you can own is some kind of protection for your device.

The BlackBelt Rugged Case for Surface Go is probably the perfect example of this kind of necessary accessory. It completely covers all of your device’s vulnerable areas, so you can enjoy this mobile-friendly computer with peace of mind knowing military-grade drop protection is keeping it safe.

Furthermore, it’s designed with an integrated hand-strap, making it extremely easy to use your Surface Go while you’re on the go.

You can even remove the Type Cover while keeping the case on, so you’re able to access and use the stylus without risking damage. Thanks to the Surface Pen holder, the stylus is always ready for use but never at risk of dropping.

2. Keyed Cable Lock for Surface Pro and Surface Go

Sometimes, it’s not dropping your Surface Pro that you need to worry about. It’s someone else picking it up. That’s why the next item on our list of Surface Go accessories is the Keyed Cable Lock, which is actually available for the Microsoft Surface Go and Pro.

The locking mechanism on this accessory is noninvasive, so you don’t need to worry that security will cost you your device’s appearance or function.

Still, the lock head actually exceeds Kensington’s industry-leading tamper-resistance standards for durability and reliability. The cable is made from carbon steel, which means it doesn’t just resist attempts at cutting it, the cable’s appearance will actively deter them.

The 5mm Keying System is designed with patented anti-picking technology. This technology is part of Kensington’s renowned key management solutions. These include Master Keyed and Supervisor Keyed options that minimize the number of keys IT managers need to secure devices in mixed-technology environments.

3. Universal AC Charge Station

 

Finally, we conclude our list of Surface Go accessories with the Universal AC Charge Station.

This device is great for classrooms, retail spaces, offices, and anywhere else that requires a durable storage solution for more than one Microsoft Surface Go.

Inside its sturdy metal frame, the station includes ample power adapter storage, so cables stay tucked away while plugged in to any of 12 available outlets. All the while, effective heat dissipation keeps devices from overheating.

If you do decide to opt for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, Kensington has some great innovative solutions for that product as well. Examples include the Surface Pro docking stations, cases, locks, privacy filters, and much more. 

Get the Very Best by Adding Surface Go Accessories

Is the Microsoft Surface Go an amazing device all on its own?

Absolutely.

However, you’ll enjoy it even more by keeping it secure, safe, and charged with the popular Surface Go accessories we described above.

Thanks to their affordable prices, there’s nothing keeping you from using each to enhance your new Surface Go.

Also, If you do decide to go with the Surface Pro 4, check out the ultimate docking station that turns your Surface Pro into a miniature Surface Studio.
