There's nothing more annoying than when you're out and in the middle of a call -- just for your battery to die on you. Especially now, with smartphones dominating the mobile market.
This Veho 'Smartstick' has five different adaptor tips and can be used to charge a variety of mobile devices. These devices include the iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Sony Ericsson and other devices that use mini or micro USB ports.
This is probably more useful to the camping and backpacking types among us -- but what student hasn't been part of a 'I'm not washing up the dishes any more' saga?
This lightweight 'Spork' works as a combination of knife, fork and spoon in one.
Purely as a means to eat when one of your housemates has pinched all your entire cutlery collection and everything left in the sink has unidentifiable stains or slime on it, you can keep your spork in your room for use in such emergencies.
I thought this 'Ice Breaker' pack was an incredible idea. If you look at University forums they are full of tips and things you 'must' bring -- so why not compile some of these ideas in to one gift pack?
Some of the items in this pack would certainly come in useful for a student -- such as a pack of cards, a shot glass and door stop. Some I find slightly confusing, such as the 5-foot high inflatable banana. But as a way to start talking it would be slightly more original than 'do you want a cup of tea?' whilst sitting awkwardly on the end of a bed, grasping for conversation starters.
Of course, it does contain one of the most useful items a student could want. A bottle opener.
