Wireless headphones with active noise cancellation
Whether it’s to make traveling by public transport more pleasant or to isolate yourself in your bubble during long study sessions, wireless headphones with active noise cancellation are a must-have.
Weigh-on-start suggestion: Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones (Bluetooth and compatible with Android and iOS) – $498
USB wall charger for cellular
We advise you to always have a charger and a wire at hand in your bag. A cell phone is so quickly drained after a long day at CÉGEP or university.
Weigh-on-start suggestion: Anker 32W USB-C and 20W USB Charger – 34,99 $
portable hard drive
With all the programs to install, research and essays to write, laptop storage space can quickly become full and slow computer performance. With a portable hard drive, all important documents will be treasured.
Weigh-on-start suggestion: Seagate portable external hard drive – 2TB – for Mac and PC – 84,99 $
Always have a USB key in your bag, in case you need to print out the essay you forgot on the dining table before leaving. Also practical for exchanging documents with classmates.
Weigh-on-start suggestion: Clé USB 3.0 SanDisk Ultra Flair – 128 Go – 19,99 $
A reusable smart notebook
If transcribing notes on paper is still something you do, why not choose a solution that is both practical and environmentally friendly. There are reusable smart notebooks that save class notes in digital format using an app on their phone. Once the pages are saved, wipe the contents of the notebook with a cloth and it will be ready for the next lesson.
Weigh-on-start suggestion: Rocketbook Reusable Smart Notebook – with 1 Pilot Frixion Pen and 1 Microfiber Cloth Included – Letter Size (8.5″ x 11″) – 48 $
Laptop stand + wireless keyboard/mouse set
In order to avoid back pain, we suggest opting for a more ergonomic position during long study sessions at home. Instead of leaning over the computer, opt for a stand that elevates it to eye level, and use a wireless keyboard and mouse. Your back will thank you at the end of the session.
