Verge loves: gadgets for freshers

As you begin your university life, there are some things that you simply just can’t live without. Here are our top 3 choices to ensure your tech is the last thing you have to worry about!


JAM Audio Double Chill Bluetooth Speaker – RRP £34.99

The Double Chill is great on its own, but it’s twice as nice when paired with another speaker for stereo sound. Its rugged design and waterproof construction are ideal for a day on the beach or by the pool, and the 30-metre/100-foot Bluetooth™ range and 12 hours of playtime mean no rush to recharge.



House of Marley Uprise Wireless Earphones
– RRP £79.99, promo £59.99

Elevate your summer music experience whilst giving back to the environment with House of Marley’s latest release, the Uprise wireless sport earphones. The Uprise offer quality performance with a comfortable fit during any activity. The modular design allows for minimalist ear hanger and loop options to ensure they stay secure throughout a run or through the airport, while their IPX5 rating makes them both sweat and weatherproof. Crafted using recycled, natural wood-fibre composite, and fully equipped with a travel case made from recycled water bottles and 100% recyclable packaging, the Uprise wireless earphones are a conscious alternative to the plastic heavy products on the market today.
