Bring your laptop screen up to a comfortable eye level with a lightweight, portable and easy to assemble laptop stand. Angles and height are both adjustable; it has a hollow underside for heat dissipation and comes with non-slip silicone.
For when you need to get in the zone and rid yourself of ambient noise: wireless headphones are your best bet. Listen to crisp audio and enjoy uninterrupted entertainment with the 0917 Series Two headphones that come with 15 hours of running time on a single charge.

Should work take you on the road or on location where charging might be tricky, bring your own backup. 0917’s Series One power bank can power up your mobile phone and other USB-powered devices faster than most battery savers. It gets extra points for its built-in short circuit protection that prevents overcharging, overcurrent and overheating.
Extension Cord with USB Port
Who gets to claim a wall socket at a restaurant, café or commercial space, and for how long? People used to remote work know that it pays to sometimes bring your own extension cord with you. It may also be a form of courtesy (nobody likes a person who hogs a socket). Consider the extension cord ahead that already comes with three ports for USB charging.

This may neither be a gadget nor an accessory, but it certainly counts as a remote work essential! A sanitizing spray is a great thing to keep handy for instances where handwashing is not a ready option.

To ensure your everyday pocket items remain clean and germ-free, too, one other thing you can invest in is a portable sanitizing box. Toss in your smartphone, keys, headphones, face mask and even money. The 0917 UV Sanitizer can disinfect these daily essentials in just five minutes.
