We round up the best accessories for the on the go professional. Contest: Leave a comment for your chance to win some great accessories!

For busy professionals on the go a BlackBerry can be an invaluable tool. It keeps us connected and in the loop even when away from the office (be that good or bad). We can stay in contact with colleagues and friends via phone, email BBM or what have you. But when it comes to accessorizing our go to device, what are the best picks? It mostly depends on your personal use, but here we have gathered some of the big hitters. From batteries to charging pods to Bluetooth headsets, every business prfessional needs some solid accessories to stay productive. Keep reading for our top choices and a chance to win some accessories of your own!

BlackBerry Accessories for the Business Professional

Spare Battery

BlackBerry Battery

The first thing that comes to mind when talking BlackBerry use are batteries. We all know that lots of times we struggle to get through the day on one charge, so having a spare battery ready to go can be a life saver. When combined with a mini external battery charger (for some models) or even a charging cradle with spare battery charger, you can have a battery ready to go when you need it most.

Battery Chargers

Mini External Battery Charger

If you use a spare battery you need a good way to charge it right? Our favorite (by far) is the External Mini Battery Charger (available for most batteries). This guy lets you charge just a spare battery via your standard BlackBerry USB charger so it's ready when you need it. Carry the charger with you, or just juice up the battery overnight and keep it by your side. You can also check out the Mobi Products Charging Cradle with Spare Battery Slot to charge your device and a spare battery at the same time.

Leather Pocket Pouch

BlackBerry Leather Pocket Pouch

Nothing says professional quite like leather, so it's only fair that your BlackBerry gets to wear leather as well. With a BlackBerry Leather Pocket Pouch you can keep your device save and sound in your pocket or briefcase while still having it at the ready. These pouches offer great all around protection for your device and have sleep magnets for extra in-holster features.

Bluetooth Headset

BlackBerry Bluetooth Headsets

Having your hands free when taking phone calls helps to get things done. If you're in the office, the car or anywhere else, the last thing you need is to have to tie up a hand when on a call. Bluetooth headsets are all over the place and come in all shapes and sizes. They range from the simple to the voice controlled complex.

BlackBerry Professional Case and Accessory Guide



That spare battery or even the charger is quite a good idea, I always try to keep a power cord around for when my BB dies during the day. But having one of those would be quite handy.

rather then carrying battery and waste time in changing battery start all over again i feel better option is external battery charger any time anywhere.

I just began my professional career and my BB is always by myside. Torch is my weapon of choice. I wonder how well the BB headsets compare with others in the marketplace? Count me in for some good old fashion giveaways!

Can't go wrong with professional looking accessories. I enjoy the fact that my smartphone isn't a toy. It's also a pleasure to know that such accessories would help keep my device up and running while on the go.

Question: Do I get extra credit for mentioning a typo so you can quickly correct it, Adam? ("...every business prfessional needs...")

Thank you very much for posting this contest Adam. We here in CrackBerry Nation greatly appreciate it. =)

The battery charger looks great! Also, not to forget the bluetooth set! Stylish! Excellent for all of us who are working professionals...for sure!

Thaose accessories are cool! The one that stands out to me is the cradle charger I soooooo need one of those! Lol

THAT might be the UGLIEST/COOLEST tie I've ever seen. Could you wear that at work???

Oh the accessories are nice too.

Since buying my Bold 9650 last sept. I find that apps are very addictive. My business usage has increased and so has my produtivity - thank you BlackBerry! The extended use battery would be an added asset to a an already great communication tool!

nothing but an advertisement to buy stuff from the crackberry store. seems to be more and more of that on this site.

When i had my curve 3g, i used to have two extre batteries with me always. But my back cover started getting loose only after two months of oppening it up three times a day.
Now, with my torch, i carry with me a 2000maH external charger so i wont wrek the thing

I'd be very pleased to pick-up any of the accessories... We have 3 Torch users in the house, and there's never enough to go around.

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Crackberrryyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!! *waves frantically* <====== results of Berry Addiction

Oh Oh I'd LOVE to win this for my daughter!!! She NEEDS this and I need it so I won't worry so darn much about her!!!! Thank u


Great Article for us busy professionals, also great work on the accessories.. love all of them.. if i dont win, congrats to the winners!

very nice the HS-700...nice headset, matches the bb bold with the leather...and it talks to you...

Excellent post!!! Here we're looking at the three key features that matter for the business users. Power, Protection and Communication. For us, blackberry users who are on-the-go on a daily basis, not only at the office but around the city going from one place to another sometimes without having oportunity during the day to stop for a few minutes just to charge the cellphone, or with the hands full carrying stuffs that we cant even get the cellphone to answer a call. Both of this situations represents for me a risk level to loss money.. why?... Cuz, if we are in the middle of the day, and run out of battery power (Blackberry turns off) while driving through the traffic... guess what??? Customers or business oportunities that tried to reach you through a phone call or an email will be lost or delayed... Equals, loss of earnings for the business. Or in the case of an engineer, who while working and carrying a bunch of papers, desings, contracts, whatever... repently receieves a phone call that he couldnt answer... because he didnt have a bluetooth headset with him. Yes, I might be critical and exaggerate a little bit.. but (in my case) when choosing the tools to drive my business, I make my decission based on this kind of extreme situations in order to make sure to go for the best. Talking about conclusions, power and communication are the top priorities.. I the case of "power" I would prefere to go with a portable powerpack isntead of a spare battery or portable battery charger (i dont like the idea of turning off my phone just to switch battery). In the case of "communication", personally Im not a bluetooth lover but I admit its a great helper for the daily on-the-go. For last but not least, "protection", Im a big fan cases and pouches... personally I preffere the leather pockets, they look more elegant and in my experience they provide more protection to the device.
Sooooooo, this was my extensive opinion regarding your post and I hope you guys consider it interesting and useful. Btw, CB dudes, I hope you consider me to win one of the accessories!!!! :D

A busy guy on the go like me could use all or any of these items. Once again, another great offering by!

The spare battery would be awesome! That spare battery charger is very cool too! Great writeup CrackBerry team :D

Right on this is the first time that i post a comment, i'm pretty new to the crackberry world.

Good luck everyone

Hey Adam, I know that tie is supposed to be a fish, but it sort of looks like male anatomy. And I thought this was a family-friendly forum...... :)

An absolute minimum to anyone always on the road. I'd add to the list a car cradle and car charger.

Good post. I like it. :)

Nice contest, any of the items would be a great addition to my blackberry. I really like the headset and pocket case.

Without this arsenal, my professional look will not be up to part to your office department Crackberry. So gear me up with some items and I will comply with strict crackberry company policy.

What model is that pictured pocket pouch for? One like that for a 9780 would be nice--can't seem to find that style.

I'd jump at the chance to win the Bluetooth headset for my 9700! If not, the extra battery works as well.

I appreciate you saving me for the Playbook giveaway, but in the meantime I could really use some good accessories. Thanks for the opportunity. Crackberry rules!!

I can say for sure that those accessories come in handy for a business professional...I'd like one :)
