5 Handy Business Accessories For Your Smartphone

Smartphones have revolutionized the way people can conduct business. You can now accept emails, organise your calendar, do your accounting and manage staff hours all on the move. But apps aren’t the only thing that can help improve your business. It’s also possible to accessorise your smartphone, making it even more multi-purpose. Here are some of the accessories that you can choose from.

Portable charger

For those low battery moments when you’re out of the office, a portable charger is the perfect solution. It allows you to charge up your device from any location, preventing the need to rush into a local coffee bar and ask if they have any plug points. Many are pocket sized, so you can walk about the London Underground on the way to a meeting with your phone charging up in your pocket.

Car Mount

This useful device is brilliant for drivers and generally attaches to the windscreen. Whether you’re using your GPS to get yourself to a meeting, or listening out for calls coming in, having your phone in front of you as opposed to lying in the centre console or glove compartment makes it much more accessible. Car mounts can be bought for all designs of phone. There are even ones designed for tablets (although having a screen that big in front of your windscreen might not be the best idea!)

Card reader

Handling large amounts of cash can be risky and asking a client to go to cashpoint can be inconvenient for you and them in some cases. Being able to accept card on the move can be solved by buying a nifty card reader extension for your phone. Many devices allow mobile credit card processing. Keep your clients impressed with your embrace of technology.


When smartphones were first released, many came with styluses but users chose to disregard them as using fingertips was easier. Indeed, styluses may not be needed for your everyday smartphone usage. However, they can come in handy for signing electronic documents. Instead of having to print off such documents you can save the ink by bringing a stylus and getting your clients to sign on your phone.

Styluses also remain a great tool for artists and designers. If you think you might want to sketch a logo design on the move, buy yourself a stylus so that you can always get your ideas down fast.

Bluetooth keyboard

Having to write lengthy emails on a phone is not fun, especially for those of us who have fat or clumsy fingers. One solution is to bring a portable QWERTY keyboard with you in your suitcase so that on the train you can write out that email fast and efficiently. Bluetooth keyboards connect to your phone wirelessly, so you don’t have to deal with frustrating cables. These keyboards can also be used with a tablet. Even if you don’t think you’re going to use it often, it’s still a cool emergency gadget to own.
