Buy a USB hub and a flash drive.

Chances are, your tablet came with one USB port. That’s enough to plug in a mouse — but nothing else. A USB hub adds extra USB ports to your tablet, letting you plug in a mouse, keyboard, and even lets you charge your phone. Hubs are inexpensive, lightweight, and flat, so they don’t hog much space in your tablet’s bag.

Flash drives work like tiny, inexpensive hard drives, making it easy to copy files to and from your tablet. After you use one, you wonder how you got along without it.
