Back in December, I did an article about the gear I carry with me on a daily basis. Every once in a while, we have to check what we have and adjust to make sure we are working in an optimum way. Time to check if anything has changed and what I'm rocking!
Let's dive right in! (All the links will be provided at the end of the article).
I wouldn't be able to carry all this stuff without my trusty Energi+ Backpack from TYLT. There's plenty of vendors out and about selling all sorts of backpacks and this one was a review that I did back earlier last year. You can get your hands on this backpack on the TYLT store for $149.99 USD.
With its cable management pass through all over you have the ability to make sure that the built-in battery reaches any of your devices to charge. The 10,400mAh battery offers a 3 port system offering you 4.2A. More than enough to top up any of your devices while on the go. With its easy management system in place for you, you can top the rechargeable battery pack when needed.
The outer larger storage compartment offers you the ability to store a nice 17" laptop comfortably which also houses the rechargeable battery and cable management part of the system. The inner section which is outfitted with a microfiber material that lets you gently squeeze in a tablet to keep it safe. The easy access from the pouch gives enough room to throw in anything you may need.
My smoking gun of choice is this slick and awesome looking Nexus 6P, a lot of people are commenting that it's big phone and yes it is, but that's just it, that's what I need, have you seen my hands? They're not small by any means and I do what I need all one-handed. This is perfect for everything I may need to do when communication with the world and it's a pretty good point and shoot device. The device still retails for $699 CAD on the Google store.
My portable keyboard of choice is from Logitech TYPE-S, although not made for this tablet, it's perfect when it comes to the style of keyboard I want and can definitely hold the tablet in place perfectly. This Bluetooth keyboard retails for $129,99 CAD, definitely a bit steep for most people. You do have cheaper options available on the market that will give you the same quality.
Next item up from the bag of goodies is the RAVPower 4 port 40W desktop charger. I keep this one around just in case there's plenty of gear that needs to get charged up. I think that's the best deal I got on this unit for $20 at the time when I purchased it.
If it wasn't enough, I have with me something new, the Plantronics Backbeat Go 3 and the Voyager 5200. As you would know in one my reviews I tested out the Voyager 5200 and this is by far the best single ear communication tool I've yet to find a match for. The multi-headed microphone with intelligent noise cancellation technology blue me away. The BackBeat Go 3 is also a cutting edge pair of Bluetooth which is perfect for the on the go listening experience. The quality in them makes it a must have in my bag.
I have a few adapters that I keep in my bag that provide OTG for my Z2 Tablet and Nexus 6P, this allows for a versatility when it comes to dealing with different tech in the field. One thing I find I'm missing in all of this is a USB-C hub that provides multi-port connectivity, but that's just around the corner.
You can find all the links and prices to most of these throughout the article.
