Five tech products that you need to know about while working from home
As we all adjust to this new lifestyle, one of the biggest challenges is ensuring we have the right tools to set up the home office. For most of us, we don’t have a lot of space or a dedicated room to turn into a home office. However, we’ve compiled this handy list of the best five work-from-tech gadgets to help increase your productivity.
1. BUY THE RIGHT MONITOR
LG 27 Inch Ultra Fine 4K UHD LED Monitor
First things first, get yourself a monitor. This will significantly increase productivity by allowing a bigger screen, as well as two screens to power through those documents and presentations. You can even keep your desk clean and prop your laptop up on a stand next to your monitor. We recommend 27” LG Ultra Fine 4K UHD Monitor that offers great resolution and a HDMI port for easy connectivity, all for a reasonable price. $399
2. KEEP YOUR CHARGING SOLUTIONS SLEEK
Mobile Product 5 Port Compact USB Charger
You might find you’re trying to charge several devices at once while you are working, including your laptop, phone and headphones. There are slim and compact portable USB chargers available like the HPM 5 Port Compact USB Charger that won’t take up too much space and keep your wires tidy. Best of all, this device can recharge up to 71 percent of your phone batter in just 30 minutes! $89.95
3. GO WIRELESS
Logitech Master 3 Wireless Mouse
It’s time to ditch the old PC mouse or move on from the laptop touchpad and upgrade to something that is wireless and ergonomic. For a mouse that is super comfortable, can work across three devices and has an excellent battery life, get click-happy with the Logitech Master 3 Wireless Mouse. You’ll feel like you are “power-working” with minimal effort! $145
4. KEEP CONNECTED ALL DAY LONG

A great gadget to keep beside your laptop is the HPM Wireless Charging Pad. A sleek black design, the HPM Wireless Charging Pad is simple and efficient enough to become a permanent fixture on your home office desk so you can keep you Qi certified phone charged all day long. $34.98
5. STAY FOCUSED
If you’re looking to maintain focus throughout the day or drown out your family members and housemates who are also taking conference calls at home, a great pair of noise cancelling headphones should be on your list!
