It's back to school season, and if you're heading back to a uni or college dorm this summer, or just staying put at home, there's a range of accessories out there that are sure to please Xbox fans. Here are some of our favorite gizmos and gadgets compatible with Microsoft's Xbox console.

Back to school, with some gaming

As a student, you probably don't have an unlimited budget for Xbox One accessories. That's alright since all of these gizmos collectively cost less than $120. You can spruce up your gaming setup, so when there's some downtime, you can kick back and relax.

Perhaps my favorite product on this list is the Avantree Universal Hanger (opens in new tab). The soft silicone ensures that your devices are well protected as they hang, and they're affordable and hard-wearing, with incredibly strong adhesive, fit for any office space.

I also strongly recommend Panasonic's Eneloop Pro charger kit (opens in new tab). You'll always be able to keep two AAs charged up and ready to go to swap into your controller, and even if you're using all four at once, they charge up to full in mere minutes. I've been re-using the same set of four batteries for around a year now, and they still retain most of the original charge owing to the Eneloop technology.
