5 es­sen­tial ul­tra­thin add-ons

T3 - - State Of The Art -

Am­plify your ul­tra­portable lap­top ex­pe­ri­ence with these must-haves, from get­ting more data to ex­pand­ing stor­age

1 EE Wi-Fi Mini

This is our pick of por­ta­ble Wi-Fi hotspots, pow­ered by USB and weigh­ing in at just 90g. The price be­low will get you 2GB of data, though our favourite tar­iff gets you a whop­ping 30GB for £ 29 per month. From £12 per month, £20 up front shop.ee.co.uk

2 Sam­sung T3 SSD

Yes we did choose it be­cause of the name. Well, that and the fact this is an awe­some way of adding more stor­age. It’s avail­able in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB ver­sions and is fast. From £113 sam­sung.com

3 Sat­e­chi Slim Alu­minum Multi-Port Hub

This awe­some hub ex­pands a sin­gle USB-C port into two reg­u­lar USB 3.0 sock­ets, a 4K HDMI video out­put, and an­other passthrough USB-C port. That pass-through port can keep charg­ing the lap­top while you use the other ports, and it re­ally looks the part too, with a brushed alu­minium fin­ish. £54 sat­e­chi.net

4 Ap­ple USB-C to Light­ning

If you’ve got a USB-C lap­top and an iPhone, then you need this ca­ble. It may seem like an ex­trav­a­gant pur­chase at first, but trust us, it will be worth it. This ver­sion is a very suit­able 50cm, though a me­tre-long ver­sion is also avail­able if you’d like it. £19 ap­ple.com

5 SanDisk 16GB Dual USB Flash Drive

One of the prob­lems with USB-C is its lack of back­wards com­pat­i­bil­ity. This clever 16GB drive can con­nect to USB-C or USB 3.1 ports and is avail­able in ca­pac­i­ties up to a com­fort­able 256GB (£ 82). £10 sandisk.co.uk
