Top 3 ‘Must Have’ Back to School Gadgets For College Students

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images News

School starts for college kids in the next few weeks. 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.


Charger Backpack



Charger backpacks are a multipurpose must-have for college students. They have a rechargeable battery pack built in for all the electronic gadgets students have these days. There are plugs for phones, tablets, iPads, laptops, etc. Plus, it still carries books! They generally run about $100.


External Hard Drive



External hard drives allow for mega storage for papers, projects, photos, and whatever else needs to be saved. It’s portable and lightweight and can be used on multiple devices. Depending on storage space a 1T drive will run $50 and up. No need to carry multiple small flash drives.


Otterbox Charger



A phone protector plus a charger all in one is a must for anyone on the go. The case not only protects those expensive phones but also provides you with double battery life. These will run you around $60, but is well worth it if you’re stuck on campus all day with no way to recharge your phone.
