The idea of comfort can take many forms. It can be something that protects your wrists or guards against neck strain—it can also mean something that feel secure that you can do your work quickly and efficiently with the help of an external keyboard and mouse. The Kokovolta USB hub allows you to plug in up to 4 USB devices at a time, whether you need it for file access or just as a hand charging station. It also features a removable sticky pad on the bottom so the hub doesn’t slide around your desk, and its sleek design keeps it from becoming an eyesore.
For cooler thighs. Amazon
Able to comfortably mount laptops in a range of sizes from 10 to 17 inches (making it compatible with most MacBooks, Surface Laptops, Dell XPS laptops, and Google Pixelbooks), this stand offers adjustable heights and angles, and the air-flow design helps keep your computer cool while you work. Anti-skid pads keep your laptop in place, and the stand folds down and can be easily broken up for easy storage and carrying. Your neck will thank you.
