EVERY YEAR, I look at the stuff I'm carrying and the things I'm using on a daily basis. I'm very happy with my Logitech Wireless Mouse, my Rode Smart Lav+ microphone, my Kanex portable battery, my Sony Xperia Z5 phone, and my Patriot USB memory key.
My main phone is a Sony Xperia Z5. It's working better now that I reset it to factory default and then repopulate its 108 apps.
I need the portable charging power of the Kanex 6000 mAH battery because I run with four mobile devices most of the time and one of them is often below 15% power remaining with 30% of my duty day remaining.
The Logitech wireless MX Anywhere mouse is the best Bluetooth mouse I've owned.
256 GB of Patriot memory lets me keep all my academic material in my pocket.
The Rode Smart Lav+ microphone works so well with mobile devices through the 3.5 mm jack.
