nonda USB-C to USB 3.0 Mini Adapter


Since the Chromebook Pro only has USB-C connectors available, you're going to need some adapters for your existing peripherals. This adapter from nonda is a good choice at a good price. It's a USB-C to a USB 3.0 adapter, so you can plug in your keyboard, mouse, web cam or really anything else that uses USB-A, and since it is USB 3.0, you'll get speedy transfers.

RAVPower 26800mAh Power Bank

Chromebooks are known for their long battery life, but what about those times where you need more juice, and aren't near an outlet? Well this battery pack will come in handy (it also works great for charging your smartphone). This is RAVPower's PD battery bank, and what that means is that it can be charged and charge other devices using the USB-C port. So using a USB-C to USB-C cable on your Chromebook Pro, you can charge your Chromebook Pro without being tied to a wall outlet.

AUKEY USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable Braided Nylon


USB-C is new (and said to be the "future") which means you'll need some new cables for your Chromebook Pro, and possibly your new phone if you plan to upgrade anytime soon. AUKEY has a set of 5 USB-C to USB-A cables here. These are all braided cables and come in at different lengths, which means that they'll be durable and that is especially important if you happen to have kids or pets.

HooToo USB C Adapter


This is a bit more robust USB-C dongle for the Chromebook Pro. It is actually made for the MacBook Pro, but the beauty of USB-C is that it will work with anything. So this dongle sports basically everything you need. There's a HDMI port, an SD card slot (the Chromebook Pro does have a micro SD card slot built in), three USB-A (USB 3.0 speeds) ports as well as a USB-C port for charging your Chromebook Pro. It's a bit pricey, but it does give you everything that you would need.

Samsung 256GB 95MB/s MicroSDXC EVO Select

While 32GB is likely enough for most people using Chrome OS (since almost everything is stored in the cloud), it doesn't hurt to get a micro SD card for your Chromebook Pro, especially since Samsung did keep the micro SD card slot here. This is Samsung's EVO Select micro SD card, which has a capacity of 256GB. That's plenty of storage for all of your music, your photos or really anything else. It's also the highest capacity micro SD card available right now.

Belkin B2B064-C00 Sleeve for 13-Inch Laptops and Chromebook

Why not pick up a protective sleeve your Chromebook Pro? This one should fit the Samsung Chromebook Pro, since it does support up to 13-inch laptops, and the Chromebook Pro is a 12.3-inch Chromebook, but it does have the 3:2 aspect ratio so it's a bit taller than most. Luckily Amazon allows you to return it if it doesn't fit. This sleeve from Belkin is great because it has a handle for you to carry it, as well as a pocket for some cables or even a mouse.

Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500

In case you don't like using the trackpad, you can always pick up a mouse to connect to your Chromebook Pro, it's pretty cheap as well. This one is a wireless mouse and does use a USB dongle, so you'll need to pick up a USB-C to USB-A dongle as well (we listed one earlier in this list). This is one of the best mice available, especially at its price point.

Anker PowerLine+ USB-C to USB 3.0 cable (6ft)

Anker also has a great braided USB-C cable available here. This is a long one, measuring in at about 6-feet long. That's the same length as the cable that comes with your Chromebook Pro. It's a USB-C to USB 3.0 cable, so you are able to use it with a battery pack, or even your phones charger, which makes it pretty versatile.

Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse

This mouse is probably a better choice than the Microsoft one we listed earlier, and that's because it does use Bluetooth for pairing – so no dongles needed at all. The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is a great mouse to pick up, its a bit more expensive, but it is great for ergonomics, it's somewhat small, and has great battery life. All things that are important when it comes to being mobile.

SanDisk Extreme 64GB microSDXC

Not sure you need 256GB of storage? Well SanDisk has a 64GB micro SD card available here. It's pretty cheap, compared to a few years ago. This is from their "Extreme" lineup, which boasts read and write speeds of around 60MB/s. It does also come with an adapter, so it can be used in other products like your DSLR or Mirrorless camera. Making it pretty versatile, of course you can also use it in your smartphone or tablet too.
