  • 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

  • USB cup warmer

    A cute concept from IWOOT, this gadget plugs into your PC or USB-enabled device and keeps the coffee warm while you work on your essay. 

    Price: £9.99 ($15)

  • Creative Live! webcam

    Going to college and using Skype to keep in contact with friends and family doesn't mean you have to invest in a high-end webcam. But if you want something a little better than your PC's default camera, you might want to consider buying a product like the Creative Live! webcam -- which is capable of HD 720p chats, snapping 5.7-megapixel photos and playback of up to 30 frames per second.

    Price: £31.49 ($48)
