Most laptop sleeves are available in 13-15 inch sizes, but MOSISO has us Chromebook users covered — literally! — with the option for 11.6-12.3-inch sleeves for these duo packs! It's also available in patterns, but you can't go wrong with classic solids, right?
You get a lot of bang for your buck with the EVO Select, which comes in sizes from 32GB all the way up to 512GB. If your Chromebook doesn't have enough space, or you want to store everything you own, this microSD card has you covered.
This mouse has a nice slim shape that makes it easy to slip in your gear bag and go. You can either use it with Bluetooth or you can use the tiny little Wireless receiver that stores in the base. It also comes in a few cool colors.
This hub is a easier to pack and carry because the USB-C cable detaches. Because that cable detaches, when you're using it at home you can swap to a longer cable to keep the hub out of the way. It's what I have on my desk right now.
These over-the-ear headphones sound incredible, have a lush fabric design, and charge over USB-C so you can use your Chromebook's USB-C charger to top off the Pampas instead of having to dig out an old Micro-USB cable.
While Android phones my be ditching 3.5mm jacks, they are alive and well on Chromebooks. This is great news for you because Panasonic still sells these comfy little earbuds for less than a large pizza in over a dozen colors.
Chrome OS function keys are hard to come by on a Bluetooth keyboard without spending tons of money or getting custom keycaps, but Logitech finally offers a version specifically for Chromebooks! It also has a numpad and the ability to quickly switch between two devices.
A regular power bank isn't going to give your Chromebook a full charge from empty, especially if you're using it. This battery pack from Zendure charges at 45W via USB-C Power Delivery, which should be more than enough to at least keep your battery from depleting while you're using it.
This is the USB-C cable I carry most often for charging my Chromebooks and my Android phones, as it's a high-quality cable with a handy magnetic and velcro carrying wrap. That wrap and the braided cable sheathing should help this cable last for years to come.
This is one of the slimmest 45W USB-C chargers we've seen so far thanks to the GaN technology that helps it achieve these higher speeds in a smaller footprint. It's not the best for crowded airport chargers, but it's great for tight squeezes in hotel rooms and convention center conference rooms.
Always forgetting your cables with your chargers? Then this RAVPower charger is for you: it has the cord built-in, and with 45W USB-C PD, it'll charge as quickly as that heavy brick your Chromebook came with. The cable is 6 feet long, so there's no need to sit right beside the outlet, either.
Making the most at home and on the go
Using the right tools with your Chromebook can help you maximize productivity and fun. If you're looking to build a great workstation for your Chromebook at home — I do that at my standing desk — I've converted my Uni USB-C Hub into a docking station by swapping the included cable for a longer C-to-C cable so that I can plug into Ethernet, my Yeti mic, and my trackball mouse.
When leaving the house with a Chromebook — something I do at the drop of a hat — you'll want a dependable laptop sleeve to keep it protected as it rattles around your gear bag. I've been loving the MOSISO 11.6-12.3-inch sleeve because it comes with a separate cable pouch so that you can pack things more easily in your bag — though the exact model I have is a little more vibrant than the solid colors linked above.
Chromebooks traditionally last 8-10 hours on a single charge, but when your day turns into a marathon or you're heading out for a weekend trip, please leave that bulky OEM charger at home and pack something smaller! The RAVPower 45W PD charger is slim and easy to pocket, and you can use it with just about any USB-C to USB-C cable you have on you, meaning you can use a short cable or a long cable as you wish.
