3 Pieces of Equipment for PC Gamers on the Go

PC Gamers

We all know that PC gamers are a completely different breed from console gamers and that they tend to take gaming much more seriously. They tend to be more competitive as well and like to enjoy their past time wherever they can. Being a gamer when you’re constantly on the move is not always easy, however, but you can replicate the home experience when playing away when you use the right tools and equipment. Let’s take a look at some pieces of equipment every gamer on the go should consider buying.

Noise-Canceling Headphones

Nice headphones are one of the best pieces of equipment that you can buy if you like to game or work in public spaces. You don’t want people around you to be bothered by your laptop’s noises and your headphones will block you from the outside world.

You have to make sure to purchase noise-canceling and not noise isolating headphones, however. Noise-canceling headphones use electronics to cancel out ambient noises but will still let some through, allowing you to still be aware of your surroundings.

A Power Bank

Most people are familiar with power banks for tablets and phones but never think about buying one for their laptops. But tons of great, and rather affordable, power banks will allow you to charge your average laptop many times over.

The most important part is picking a bank that has a large enough capacity and can provide the type of voltage your laptop needs. You should be able to find your laptop’s power requirements by looking at its spec sheet, owner’s manual, or the adapter.

As far as capacity goes, you need a bank with a capacity of at least 20,000mah. Since the average laptop battery has a capacity of around 4000mah, a power bank like this would allow you to charge a laptop about four to five times to full charge.

Also, make sure that the power bank has plenty of ports. This will allow you to charge as many devices at once as you can. A USB-C port will also allow you to charge your devices much faster if they have USB-C capabilities.

A Laptop Cooling Pad

This is a must if you like playing on the plane or train and have to put your laptop bag under your computer to prevent it from burning your legs. Gaming laptops can get extremely hot, and you should get a cooling pad even if it’s for playing at home. Not only will it keep you cool, but will cool down the laptop as well which will prevent crashes, hardware issues, and performance issues.

If you want the best of the best, we suggest you go for a Lenovo laptop cooler. Lenovo have coolers of all sizes that can cool virtually any machine down, so give them a look today and check out their selection.

These are only some of the tools that will help make your nomadic gaming experience better. Consider adding some or all of these tools to your collection and look at other ones that could make your life easier.
