Top gadgets for your next work trip–are you back to travelling for work? Here’s a goody bag of gizmos to help you get started. By Vaibhav Sharma
Gadgets For Your Next Work Trip
Jabra Evolve2 30
Your daily business calls will be smooth with this business headset. It’s ultralight (125g), comes with Microsoft Teams certification, utilises dual mics and 28mm speakers for clearer audio, and has a robust steel construction, which means you can chuck it into your laptop bag and run over to the poolside bar as soon as you clock off. INR 7,800.
2. PORTABLE PRINTER
Canon Pixma TR150
Smaller than some coffee table books, this portable printer is tailor-made for folks who don’t want to depend on hotel business centres. There’s quick charge, an antitheft lock slot, 9ppm b&w printing, and multiple wireless printing options. It also prints in colour, which makes it perfect for printing postcards of your leisure time on the trip. INR 23,441.
3. EXTERNAL STORAGE
SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD
The updated version of SanDisk’s Extreme external SSD brings higher speed to an already compelling package. Our pick is the 1TB version, which balances price with performance. It achieves transfer speeds of up to 1,050 MB/s over USB 3.1, and there’s also the IP55 water and dust resistance, which keeps your data safe. INR 12,999.
Logitech MX Master 3
The mouse might be the most unglamorous piece of tech ever but it’s a critical tool. That’s why we recommend that anyone spending hours poring over Excel sheets get themselves the MX Master 3. It has a machined steel scroll wheel, navigation and gesture buttons, app-specific customisations, and most importantly, an ergonomic design that lets you ace those quarterly targets without ending up with a wrist injury. INR 9,495.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7
Here’s a laptop that looks smashing and is suitably professional. It’s also lightweight, won’t break the bank, and will double up as your personal laptop. The Slim 7 offers a choice between AMD and Intel processors, a sensibly sized screen (14 inches), up to 16GB RAM, an optional 4K display, Dolby Atmos audio, Dolby Vision display optimisation, and fast charging. From INR 76,990.
Perfect for professionals and business persons alike, this travel planner and expense tracker will minimise all that stressful paperwork of business travel. Features include receipt scanning, itinerary planning, easy booking, easy tagging, and travel and expense approval.
