Top accessories for the back-to-school season

Back-to-School tends to mean making big decisions. Such as, what the first day of school outfit is going to be or who is picking up and driving from practice. While mobile tech can’t make those decisions for you, it can help get you through the day and make tasks easier in life.

Starting today, save $30 on the LG TONE PLATINUM (now $169.99) and $20 on the mophie powerstation 3x (now $59.99). The discounted pricing is available for the month of July as part of Verizon’s accessory of the month promotion. Both accessories are back to school essentials for parents and students alike, and Verizon is the place to find them.

Students: Running between classes, club meetings, group study and afterschool parties can make it difficult to keep a smartphone battery in the green, especially when you are trying to keep up with social media. A portable battery is easier to carry around than a charging cable and playing scavenger hunt for a power outlet.

Parents: back-to-school for parents means getting back into routine with school hours, pick-ups, sports or band practice, and so much more. It means not knowing the next time you’ll see a power outlet. A portable battery pack like the mophie powerstation 3x can help keep the “low battery” alert away, and its secondary USB port can charge your kid’s device simultaneously.

Students: Stop spending half the walk to class untangling headphone cables. It’s not fun, especially when you have a song stuck in your head that you need to hear on repeat right then and there. Luckily, the LG TONE PLATINUM has retractable ear buds so they are ready when you need them.

Parents: A Bluetooth headset makes sense for the school season with all the back-and-forth driving and activity going on. Don’t fumble your phone trying to answer a call or text during a hectic moment of the day. The headset supports voice commands for texting and single button answering for phone calls to make life easier.
