Imagine – you were sick and missed class for a couple days and your awesome roommate took notes on her laptop, saved them to thumb drive and is giving them to you! You sit down at a library computer with her USB and yours to copy the file and you can find only one USB port…

This convenient power hub turns one USB port into four so you’re never left searching for another port. You can even charge your phone a little while you upload those files. Any device that multitasks is a winner in our book.
With all those walks across campus and to the bus stop, your ear buds will become your best friend. If you’ve tried everything to keep your buds within reach when they’re not in use or when chatting for a few moments, including threading them under your shirt and over your shirt collar, you’ll love this insanely simple product to keep your buds in place. Simply hang Props around your neck with both ends resting on your chest, thread the wire of each bud through the grips, and let Props catch your buds every time you drop them out of your ears. So simple. So easy. No more dropping buds or getting tangled in cords.
Cell phone, check. Student ID, check. Cash, check. License, check. Credit or debit card, check. And all of this you keep safe and tucked away with the X-shaped Crossover case that is a triple threat: covers the back of your phone with a colorful, chic design, provides a rubber bumper and protection on all corners and the back of your device and – the best part – a super easy alternative to store your cards, cash, sticks of gum, lip gloss, or any other small items you might need when you hit the town with the crew.
