Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images News

School starts for college kids in the next few weeks and for many parents, as well as the students, it’s a world unknown. What will they need, for the dorm/apartment, or better yet for class? I have 3 gadgets that could make a college students life much easier. They may seem a bit pricey but remember they are an “investment” in your child’s future.


iXpand Flash Drive



This is an awesome little gadget for your iPhone that creates lots of extra space and easy transfer of photos, music and videos. You know the kids are going to be taking lots of photos of friends, games, activities and maybe even some classwork. This has 4 storage capacities available; 10 GB to 128 GB. It allows for easy transfer of data from one device to another and also allows you to expand your storage space on iPhones, iPads, PC’s and Mac’s. Price range is generally $100 – $200 depending on GB capacity.


Ventev USB Charging Hub 400



This is a great little device that can charge up to 4 electronics at the same time. You can charge a tablet on the rapid charge plus 3 other devices, such as a phone, iPod etc. This will make sure your kiddo can get that homework finished and emailed to the professor and you can talk to them whenever needed. The best thing is it’s small and inexpensive running only about $40.


KarmaGo Wifi Hotspot



This is a small pocket sized portable wifi hotspot. This is great for college kids because they can take it anywhere; the library, a friends, restaurant/coffee shop, park or wherever they want to study. It works with laptops, tablets, and phones to give you fast internet service wherever you go. It’s contract free, $14 GB, can run up to 8 devices, pay as you go and your data never expires. What better gift to give a college student than a little good Karma!
