CNET News Video: Tech Minute: Back-to-school gadgets

1:05 /

It's time to start filling up that backpack again with the most necessary back-to-school supplies: a laptop, tablet, and smartphone. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on some other useful gadgets to help kick off the school year.

Every student returning to school needs a good backpack. Check out the 140 to 170-dollar Powerbag backpack with a built-in battery charger. It has all the spacing compartments you need for your laptop and other supplies, but it comes with a battery system with charging ports for every kind of device possible. At the end of the day plug your backpack into the wall to charge up for the next day on the go. If you're someone who likes to study with your laptop literally in your lap, then a must-have back-to-school gadget is the Logitech N100 Cooling Pad. For about 30 bucks, protect your lap or desk from notebook heat with this USB-powered Cooling Pad. Finally, digital pens are handy but expensive. Check out this new option from Evernote and Moleskine. Take your notes in a specially designed Moleskine notebook, snap a photo of that page and then store your notes in your Evernote account. This 30-dollar system lets you stay organized and search your notes by keyword. In San Francisco I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
