Start your year right with these superb, super-useful tech gadgets that will boost your productivity, and reduce your day-to-day tech stress levels. It’s easy for technology to turn into digital shackles that keep us tied to work by throwing at us a blizzard of popups, chimes, dings, and other annoyances. However, with a little bit of thought and planning, it’s possible to get technology to work for us and allow us to get more done, have more downtime, and feel less stressed.
1. 20-PIN USB-C MAGNETIC BREAKAWAY CONNECTOR
They saved me hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in repairs. It makes cable connecting as easy as a snap, avoids scratching the surface of your devices, and prevents your priced laptop from accidental falling off in case someone tripping over the charging cable. USB C Magnetic Adapter achieves a max current range of 5 Amps 100W power, allowing you to charge your MacBook Pro 15inch(87W), MacBook Pro 13inch(61W), MacBook(29W) and other PCs, smartphones and tablets.
2. ZENDURE SUPERTANK USB-C PORTABLE CHARGER
Not the smallest — it measures 4.7- by 2.9- by 1.6-inches. Not the lightest — it weighs in at a hefty 17.6 ounces. Not the cheapest — the retail price is $191.99. But if you travel with a laptop, or you carry several devices around with you, this is the best portable power bank I’ve tested. Not only does it have a whopping 27,000mAh capacity (99.9Wh, so it is good for most airlines for travel), it has a 100W output that can charge a 15-inch MacBook Pro at full speed, adding an amazing 8 hours to the runtime. It can also recharge an iPhone XS seven times before it requires recharging.
3. SOUNDCORE LIBERTY 2 PRO
Well, not only is the audio quality simply delicious — like ice cream, but for your ears — but they are comfortable, have a long battery life (the buds have 8 hours of battery life, the charging case taking that up to 32 hours, and the case can be recharged using either USB-C or a Qi-certified charger), and they have a fast-charge feature (10 minutes in the case gives them 2 hours of charge). The carry case is also small and lightweight, and the call quality using these is second to none.
4. USB RECHARGEABLE AA AND AAA BATTERIES
They are so convenient to charge up — no need for some separate charger sitting on the desk. Capacity seems good, and they are durable, and the perfect solution for those devices that need an AA or AAA battery.
5. TILE PRO AND TILE SLIM

See it on a map: the Tile app remembers when and where you left something behind.
