5 Gadgets you need in a Small Town

  • Ergonomic Office Chair: Be it at your kitchen table, the couch in the living room, or the chair on your patio. Sitting with the wrong posture can lead to back and neck pains, posture problems, and even health issues in the long run. An ergonomic chair is not just comfortable but designed to look out for your back, especially during those long hours sitting in front of your computer.
  • Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headset: Even though most small towns are quiet, other occupants of the space you work from may not always stay silent. Bluetooth headsets with noise cancellation tech eliminate the external distraction giving you the laser focus you need to complete tasks. Most of these headsets also have long-lasting batteries.

  • Multi- USB Adapter: If you are a remote worker and you are anything like me, you have multiple devices to get work done often. Using various devices may require connecting numerous devices to your workstation. The Multi-USB adapter gives you a hub where any of your devices can remain connected on the fly, eliminating the need for you to switch between devices.
  • Wireless Charging Pad: This technology is limited to only compatible devices but can save you a lot of stress and clutter in your workstation. This ‘no wires required pad charges multiple devices with up to 15W, which means they charge fast. It is also a safe alternative to traditional charging.
  • Webcam: For remote workers, this is a no-brainer. However, most laptops already come equipped with a webcam. Regardless, a high-end webcam can improve the picture quality of your video calls and live stream, especially if you are an online gamer or Vlogger.

5 Gadgets you need on the Road

  • Laptop Stand: Always wondered why your neck and shoulders are always sore? A laptop stand elevates your computer and improves your work experience. This stand is usually lightweight and durable.
  • Solar Charger: A solar charger is a must-have if you are a digital nomad on the go. This device ensures you stay online and operational wherever you may be—running low on juice? A portable solar charger can give your devices extra charge to keep you working and practical wherever you are.
  • External Storage Device: Data accumulates when you live and work on the go. The storage capacity of your devices may be exceeded. Even if they aren’t, too much data may affect their performance. External hard drives ranging from 500GB to 1TB ensure your devices don’t get bogged down with those extra files and a backup option on the go.
  • Keyboard Case: These are cases for your Tablet or iPad with a keyboard attached. This handy gadget can turn your tablet into a mini-computer on the go. This gives you the flexibility to work away from your laptop, improving efficiency, and oh, it’s also a very stylish accessory.

  • Nomad Internet Modem: You can’t be a remote worker or a digital nomad without a reliable internet connection with broad coverage that ensures you stay connected no matter where you go. Nomad Internet uses the latest 4G LTE technology and collaboration with the three largest network providers in the US to deliver high-speed, reliable, and hitch-free internet at affordable rates! What’s even better, Nomad Internet boasts a most emphatic and professional customer care culture, so you are assured of speedy response to your inquiries and queries on the go!

    If there is a stable high-speed Internet, then an external storage device is unnecessary. You can send everything to the cloud storage. And even if the device itself breaks down, you can log into your cloud storage from any other device and have access to all the content. To do this, I plan to purchase a Nomad Internet modem, so that everything that is important to me is available to me on the road.

    I finally ordered my Nomad Air and I’m looking forward to it! And the next important purchase I’m planning is also on your list. I’m talking about an external storage device. I didn’t pay much attention to this thing before, until one day my laptop failed. All my academic papers for the university were there, it was terrible. Since then, I wanna be insured against technical surprises.

    Oh, yes, sitting in the snail pose, after which the whole body seems to fall apart is about me. I work wherever I have to, in my workshop or in a cafe. And I’m pretty sick of it. I was just thinking about an ergonomic office chair and a comfortable desk to organize a mini office for myself. Thank you, Nomad, for reminding me of this!

    The fact that I have to have a modem that provides me with high-speed Internet is a matter of course! In addition, I highlight noise-canceling headphones. I often work from home and I have a small son and a dog, to whom I can’t explain that I need silence to make video calls.

    Nomad Internet modestly put its modem in the last place in this rating of the necessary. But in fact, if you don’t have a good Internet, then why do you need everything else? After all, all activities at the computer are conducted in close connection with activities on the Internet.

    This is an interesting article! Indeed, there are some important things listed here. Most of digital nomads and remote workers spend all day at the computer, so ergonomic chair and laptop stand sound like most useful things to have. In my opinion, the other gadgets that the author mentioned, are not that essential, though are helpful to have, too. For example, noise cancelling bluetooth headset: sometimes you need a total focus on the task but can’t achieve due to background noise, people loudly babbling or something else. This headset would be a lifesaver in such situation. Overall, the article is quite informative and now I know what I need to buy.

    As a digital nomad myself, I completely understand the importance of having reliable and efficient technology when on the go. However, I also believe that we should not solely rely on gadgets to solve all of our problems, especially when it comes to remote and rural areas. In my experience, investing time in building relationships with local communities and understanding their needs can go a long way in helping to bridge the digital divide. Instead of just providing a list of gadgets, it would have been more beneficial if the article discussed ways to empower rural communities through technology and collaboration.
