5 unbelievably useful gadgets you want to add to your collection

Whether you are on-the-go, in your office or at home, you need gadgets that can introduce time-saving advantages into your day. In today’s connected world, life without technology is meaningless.

Entrepreneurs who understand how gadgets can turbocharge their business efforts are wasting no time to invest in them. Perhaps you are yet to follow that trend, or you just want to add more to the list of gadgets that can aid your business, we have curated a list of five gadgets every Nigerian entrepreneur should own to supercharge productivity.

1. Ultra-light laptop charger

As an entrepreneur, you always want to be connected as you might often want to deliver presentations or retrieve an important file on your laptop while on-the-go. A portable charger like the Zolt charger can come in handy. The Zolt is about the size of two Chapsticks and can charge your laptop and two other devices simultaneously. 

Instead of moving around with a bulky charger along with a bulky laptop, try a Zolt charger on for size.

Note: The charger doesn’t sell in Nigeria yet. Check here to see when they start shipping here.

2. Mini USB fridge

If you frequently work long hours and want to avoid taking constant breaks to grab a beverage, then  invest in the mini USB fridge.

With the USB mini fridge, you can keep a cool beverage ready to drink at all times. Its built-in cooling plate quickly drops to its lowest operating temperature within five minutes after being plugged in.

It works with any computer operating system and does not require batteries. Simply plug the USB port in, insert your canned drink and enjoy.

3. Portable Battery Backup Charger (Power Brick)

Entrepreneurs are often moving around, attending meetings and consulting with clients, so it’s not uncommon that their phones die within a few hours.

With a backup power, you can keep your devices on power, all day.  Most power bricks come with a standard outlet and two USB ports. They are very portable and can easily fit into your briefcase. They also come in different power capacities

The device is especially great for entrepreneurs who cannot carry around important files and notes with them. See more here.
