Useful tech for students

Now that school is underway, we all need that essential pieces of tech that will help us get through the term in peace. I have narrowed it down to 4 different pieces of tech that I use daily and will be beneficial to you all.


This is one of the most useful things I have ever bought. I got it from Tiger Stores for £3. It was a steal at that price. Due to the small compact design, you can take it anywhere without any hassle. Since my phones battery life isn’t that good, I need to have a charging cable on me at all time.

I use this keychain to charge my phone. I just plug it into my laptop and wait till my phone is fully charged. It’s very useful because this means I will always have a charging cable on me, so I don’t need to carry any long wires with me.


I purchased a RAVPower 40W 4-Port Desktop Charger in May and till this day I haven’t regretted this purchase ever. This is one of the most useful pieces of tech to buy. Reason being all my devices need powering at the end of the day (lol they die halfway through the day).

So, I have set this up on my desk with the cables running under my table. This means whenever I need to charge anything I just plug the USB into the charging station. The charging station is powered by the mains so you don’t need to worry about charging it. Currently this product is selling for £11 on Amazon, so head on over and try it out.

Integral Fusion 32 GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive

This is USB 3.0, so already we can be sure that the read and write speed is very fast.  Transferring files has never been any easier. You might think, “this is so small, I’ll lose it”. But don’t fret, when you purchase the USB it comes with a strap which you can attach onto anything. I put It on my keys because not only would I have my USB with me always but also it will never get lost.

I’ve had this USB for a couple of months now and if you don’t have a USB and you need one, head on over to amazon and purchase this one. It comes in a silver colour which I also like as it just blends in well with my MacBook.


OneNote by far is the most useful application a student can get. Note taking is super easy and efficient. With its automatic saving, you don’t need to worry about losing your work. I have been using OneNote for 2 years now and I highly recommend it. If you have a touchscreen laptop or a tablet you can customise your notes with your own handwriting by using your finger or a stylus.

Also, let’s say you accidentally deleted the app, you don’t need to panic as the notes are saved on your account. If you do not have OneNote, you can buy it from Microsoft or if your university is awesome they might give you the Microsoft package for free.
