  • Universal Travel Case

    Frequent travellers should use a cable stash when on business trips to carry chargers, cables, and other small items. They provide a good way to keep essential support gear for gadgets, and are easily stashed in a corner of a carryon bag.

    This case is a good solution as it offers several pockets for keeping the suuport gear organized. It is well constructed and can fit a surprising amount of stuff in such a small package.

    The case is available from Amazon for $10.49.

  • 6-foot USB to microUSB cable

    Many tablets come with a USB to microUSB charging cable that is frustrating to use given its short length. 

    This six-foot cable eliminates that frustration. It's constructed of quality materials and the length frees you to set the tablet up where you prefer. This is particularly useful in some hotel rooms, given their shortage of outlets.

    The cable is available from Amazon for $5.49.

  • Executive Stylus

    Some tablet owners like to take handwritten notes in meetings, and that requires a stylus. Some of those look big and clunky, but not this "executive" stylus. It has the sleek metal look of a traditional pen, with the capacitive tip on the bottom end.

    You can carry it in your pocket like any pen, with no one the wiser until you pull it out and start jotting notes on your tablet.

    It will work with virtually any touch tablet and is $6.99 from Amazon.

  • Ummmm.

    Some of those items are over $10. perhaps small amounts, but the heading is wrong! And the last item... those headphones are $199. FAR from being a $10 gadget... But I do like that ipad/tablet carrying case.. Might make a great gift!
  • Keyboard

    The TaoTronics Mini Wireless keyboard was a good find. Might have to try that one out.
