My five essential accessories for teleworking on any desk
This 2021 promises to bring many new features, although there are some of 2020 that will continue to be maintained for a while. We refer to teleworking. Many people have been forced to work from home as a result of the pandemic and this has resulted in obtaining the necessary devices to carry out this task: acquiring an ergonomic chair, a new laptop or a printer. However, we are aware from the THE COUNTRY Showcase that many of our readers must be missing, today, an accessory to complement the basics that every desk should have.
On this occasion, a server offers you up to Five essentials for all those who this year must continue working from their bedroom, living room or home office. I speak of various supports to place a monitor, the laptop, tablet or mobile, a mini size lamp that will complement the main light of the room where we are and a vertical strip to centralize the sockets of our devices. If we got hold of all of them it would mean a small outlay that he would soon be rewarded. It has meant an improvement in my day to day, both in productivity What in personal well-being. So if you have come this far, you should keep reading. These are my five essentials for teleworking at any desk:
Metal mount for monitor or TV
The AmazonBasics brand has always been distinguished by the manufacture of functional accessories and products for the home. One of them is this metal stand. A basic that until a few months ago I had not tried and that solves well the problem of eyestrain and limits the so dreaded contractures in the neck or back area. And it is not only worth having a height-adjustable monitor if we do not have an accessory that raises it. Its hundreds of ratings and a high mark attest to its ergonomics. Three characteristics have caught my attention: his compact size (perfect for corner desks, as is my case), its stability (supports up to 20 kg) and lo well it adheres to surfaces.
12-socket vertical strip
Design, order and energy saving. This is what would stand out the most of a product that more than fulfills the task for which it was manufactured. We have already talked extensively about him in EL PAÍS Showcase and, on this occasion, it seems essential to include him in this selection. Comfort in use It is what I value the most about it because it breaks with the scheme that we have in the head of the typical horizontal strip. Thus, takes up very little space and it is a great success to solve the mess of cables, chargers and power outlets that swarm around the desk. In addition, the appliance never overheats (even if it runs for hours), does not suffer current losses and the chargers stand vertically to optimize space.
Four USB ports
Ideal for places with little space or areas where we need Fill recess, such as behind the monitor or in a corner of the desk. It is equipped with non-slip rubber feet that prevent possible slipping and two switches to turn off one half or the other of the strip, as appropriate.
Mini-lamp with clamp-shaped base
An additional point of light in the room It is a practical and most appropriate solution to continue working once the day gives way to the night. What captivated me the most when trying this product for weeks is the ilight intensity that it offers despite its size diminuto: mide solo 24,5 x 3,9 x 2,7 cm. The manufacturer points out that the battery can last between five and ten hours. I have verified that a normal working day can handle it without problems. On the other hand, has three modes of use: light warm, light blanca Y mixed (six LEDs in total). The only but is that you can not adjust the brightness, although for its price it is not an inconvenience. His clip is adjustable up to 4 cm. I place it in the frame of the metal support pointing at the monitor from below and it suits me very well.
A dim light as well as powerful
The handle of this mini lamp has a 360 degree rotation and is silicone coated. The device has a two-year warranty and one more if we register on its website. A great success!
Multi-angle support for tablets or mobiles
Tired of seeing reflections on your tablet or computer screen? smartphone for working near a window? That’s because you haven’t done it yet with an accessory like the one in the picture. I was meditating for a while to choose between the model only for smartphones or that of only for tablets. I opted for the second option since any mobile will adapt perfectly to it. It has a finish in highly polished aluminum and opens at an angle almost 90 degrees, something to keep in mind depending on the use we give it: be it to draw on the tablet, make a video call or surf the internet. It has four rubber buffers on its base and two more on the structure to avoid scratches and improve grip. On its back it has a small opening for hide charger cable.
Foldable stand for laptops up to 17.3 inches
The best ally whether we have a main laptop or if we have it linked to an external monitor. Last Black Friday I got this model from the Nulaxy brand and I can affirm that it is a 100% ergonomic product. Since the finishes Until that practical that turns out to be transported. It is valid for all kinds of laptops, netbooks or large tablets, as indicated by the manufacturer. It has a broad base and ones articulated arms somewhat rigid (at first it is a bit difficult to move them) but it is a characteristic that makes the difference: their structure does not move one iota even if we write with a certain intensity. Supports a weight of up to 6 kg. It has an elongated opening at the bottom to dissipate heat of the devices.
The height to which this accessory adapts is also a factor to take into account. It can vary from 8 to 26 cm, something that facilitates its use by all members of the family, regardless of age.
