Your office is big, comfortable and perfect for getting things done. Your laptop is … less. But with some extra gadgets, you can incorporate the essential comfort of a complete office setup into a bag and take them anywhere.
We have chosen perfect complementary items that will work with any Windows or MacOS laptop, as well as most Windows tablets. It is not very practical to have all the equipment and accessories at an airport, but for a long working session in a hotel room (or in the basement of your son-in-law), it's an excellent package. Mix them and match them as you please, wrapping things around or leaving them as needed.
For comfortable input: a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard
Notebooks are much better than before for keyboards and touchpads, but you can not beat a real keyboard / mouse combination. This doubles if you made the transition to a tablet: these keyboard combinations cover a lot of things to be desired. Bluetooth is convenient and connects automatically. It works with any modern laptop.
For your mouse, we recommend the excellent Logitech Triathlon M720 . This mouse is larger and much more comfortable than your typical "travel" mouse, but it includes all the features you want, with five standard buttons and a fast-scrolling scroll wheel. The mouse includes both a typical USB key and Bluetooth compatibility, and can switch quickly between up to three programmed devices. (Convenient if you also bring a tablet!) Better still, a single AA battery lasts for months. The price of this mouse varies, but it can often be found for less than thirty dollars.

Logitech manufactures keyboards with the same fast switching technology, and all is well. But if your budget gets longer, I will recommend Hexgears X-1 . It's a mechanical card that uses ultra-thin switches and a compact structure, which gives a mechanical sensation of normal size to an object that you can slide into your bag with ease. The switches have a better rendering than any laptop or keyboard travel. They are equipped with a backlight and a multi-device coupling. The keyboard is available with white (clicky), brown (raised, no click) and red (linear smooth) switches; choose the last one if you are concerned about the typing noise. As a bonus: it comes with its own briefcase.
For more workspace: a monitor powered by USB
If you've been spoiled by setting up a monitor with two or three screens at home or at work, it can be very difficult to do things on one screen. Fortunately, there is a solution: bring a monitor with you! And since most backpacks can not accommodate a 20-pound screen, portable versions using a single USB cable for power and video are available. Obviously, doing it and organizing it for each work session is not ideal, but it's great if you have some time and space.
For most users, we recommend the HP EliteDisplay S140u from HP. Its 14-inch size fits well with most laptops and includes a smooth stand that is stable and protects the screen while traveling. Its 1600 × 900 resolution will not interfere with your laptop's built-in graphics and the USB 3.0 A-style cable works with the most modern machines without an adapter. If you need something more powerful with USB-C, see rather this model Asus .
For a worry-free power supply: a portable surge protector
This three-shot Belkin surge protector was my companion on all major business trips of the last decade. It's simple, flexible and you do not have to fight against crowds at the airport for the only point of sale available. In addition to a basic protection for your expensive laptop, it includes dual plugs to give a boost to your more mobile gadgets without having to remove another adapter. Seriously, make sure this thing is in your bag and that you will be the most popular convention attendee.
For ease of reading: a tablet stand

If you travel with a tablet or if you prefer a more comfortable way to watch your phone for long periods of time, this Anker Holder is an excellent insert into your work bag. Lightweight but robust, it can support even the heaviest and heavier tablets at almost any reading or viewing angle.
Emergency backup: a portable battery

If you're a frequent flyer, you're probably already using a portable battery to keep your phone full. But if you are looking for a new model, Heloideo's model is excellent . It plugs directly into the wall for charging and includes Lightning, Micro-USB and USB-C cables built into its case. All you need to recharge just about any mobile device in a compact package. 10000mAh should fully charge a phone at least twice, and it includes a standard USB output port for non-standard devices. Need a battery big enough to charge your laptop? So you want the RAVPower portable AC outlet with dual capacity and standard built-in wall outlet.
To tie everything up: a good laptop bag
Of course, you will need what to put it all. If you do not already have a laptop bag, we have many recommendations for high quality budget options and . The cream of the crop is the Peak Everyday Messenger Design, a bag filled with excellent materials, stylish design and flexible storage options. It's expensive at $ 250, but it will carry your laptop, everything in the list above, and more, while having a fantastic look and protecting it well.
