What are the absolute tech essentials (or perks) for students in college? I saw a roundup published on a site called Cha Cha – thank you Twitter – and thought I’d share a few of what they pointed out and some others that I consider life threatening if I didn’t have them. Yes, I am that obsessed with my Mophie.
First off, this backpack they featured is amazing! It’s a solar backpack that charges your devices via sunlight. That makes your commute and walk to class that much more efficient! This isn’t a cheap backpack (priced at $169.99), but not worrying about your notebook dying in the middle of taking class notes? Priceless.
Next we have the iPhone projector. This little box of magic will be a God-send not only in the classroom, but in almost every business meeting you host or attend. I promise; I’ve been there. And those portable projectors are heavy!
Now I can’t really be the best judge when it comes to men’s razors, but the roundup introduced the USB rechargeable razor for college students. I’m including it not as a recommendation per say, but rather a curiosity. Because, seriously college males, would you recharge your razor when working on your thesis and decide to shave mid-paragraph? Debatable…but a worthy question…or challenge.
Now this next item is essential for both the dorm room and beyond! Plus it’s the best networking tool when you’re at a conference. How many people are running around trying to find an outlet for their computers? Almost everyone. And there you are with the power strip! Well done, well done.
Now, remember that Mophie I mentioned earlier? Well prepare to be necessary. I can’t tell you how many events and bars I’ve gone to where someone has asked me if I had an iPhone charger with me. My response, “Do you want to just use my Mophie?” It’s a battery in an iPhone case. Your battery will never die again. And you’ll be the talk of the party…just don’t loan out all your juice until your phone is fully charged.
Dear students, this is a call to you! What is your tech essential on and off campus? Share in the comments!
