  • iPhone 5 Polycarbonate Wallet

    Theft is not the only peril a student's mobile device will face during years of study -- accidentally being dropped or thrown in a rage is also a possibility. Going beyond protection, you can buy covers such as the iPhone 5 polycarbonate wallet so your student can keep money, credit cards and I.D. in the same place as their mobile -- and so hopefully there will be less chance of these important items being lost or mislaid. 

    Price: $34.95

  • Pivot power mini

    Students tend to have a plethora of devices, but not necessarily enough outlets to use and charge them all. As part of a 'starting college' package, you may want to consider buying a plug and USB combo -- such as the Pivot power mini. 

    Once plugged into an outlet, the Pivot provides the user with two standard outlets and two USB ports. 

    Price: $29.99
