Top 10 Best Laptop Accessories - Back To School 2018

Going back to school is a pretty big deal, especially for those that are going off to college for the first time. And while every student is going to need a laptop, there are also some accessories that everyone is going to need, which includes webcams, extra USB-C cables and much more. So we have rounded up the top ten best laptop accessories to go back to school with, which are all listed down below.

As far as webcams go, you can't go wrong with the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920. This is a 1080p webcam that offers up some great video quality, thanks to the Carl Zeiss glass that it is using. It also has microphones built-in, so it's great for making Skype calls while your student is away, and you can still see what they are up to and so forth. Another great accessory to pick up for back to school is a pair of USB-C cables from Anker. These are 6-feet long cables, which is pretty long, and great for college. These are also braided cables, so that they are going to be tougher than your normal cables, and can be bent far more than regular cables that aren't braided. You can get a pair of these for under $20, which is a really good price, to be honest.

We've already listed the top 10 best laptops to pick up for going back to school, and some of those use just USB-C ports, so we have also listed some USB-C hubs so you can get your ports back. And there are some good options listed below. If you haven't decided on a laptop yet, you'll want to check out that top ten for an idea of what laptop to pick up for you or your student. There's also a slew of laptops on sale right now at various retailers.

Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920

Webcams are a must-have laptop accessory these days, and that's because many laptops have pretty terrible cameras built-in. And if you're going off to college for the first time, this is going to be an easy way to call home, and allow your parents to actually see you instead of just hearing your voice.

Mancro Laptop Backpack

Mancro has an excellent laptop backpack available right now and it is under $30. This is big enough to carry laptops that are up to 17 inches. This means that it is going to be able to carry most if not all laptops right now. There are also other compartments for carrying books, notebooks, pens and other supplies you may need.


If you picked up a newer laptop, chances are there are very few ports and they are all USB-C ports. So picking up a USB-C hub is going to be important. The UGREEN USB C Hub is a great option because it sports a HDMI port, three USB-A ports and a USB-C port for charging your laptop through passthrough.

RAVPower 26800 PD Portable Charger

Continuing with USB-C accessories, this portable charger is a good option too. It sports PD or Power Delivery, which means it is powerful enough to recharge your laptop in a reasonable amount of time. That means that you won't need to stick to a wall outlet all day while you are on campus and such.

AmazonBasics Backpack

Sometimes you just need a backpack that is simple, and that's what you get with this AmazonBasics backpack. It offers plenty of space for things other than laptops - like textbooks, notebooks and so forth. It can hold a laptop up to 17-inches, which pretty much covers every laptop out there right now.

ROSENICE 360° Protective Laptop Sleeve Case

This laptop sleeve is a pretty inexpensive sleeve - coming in at under $10 - and will support most laptops up to 13-inches. This is a good idea for taking back to school so you can keep your laptop nice and safe while you are carrying it back and forth to classes and such.

Sanho SOLO 7-in-1 USB C Hub

If you do have a laptop that only has USB-C ports, don't worry, this USB-C hub is going to be perfect for you. This has just about every port you could need. That includes a micro SD card and SD card slot, as well as two USB-A ports, a USB-C port for charging, a headphone jack and a HDMI port for connecting to a monitor.

Samsung T5 Portable SSD

It's a good idea to carry around an external hard drive to keep documents and other files on, and this portable SSD is one of the fastest portable hard drives out there. The Samsung T5 Portable SSD comes in 256GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB. These will offer speeds of up to 500Mb/s which is pretty impressive.

Anker [2-Pack, 6ft] PowerLine+ USB-C to USB-A

Anker has a two pack of braided USB-C cables here, which will work for charging your laptop as well as your smartphone. And since these are braided, they will last much longer than a regular cable, especially if you are rough on your cables and such.
