Four Essential Gadgets Every Traveler Must Have

Technology has been an essential companion to most people these days. And deciding on which gadget to pack when you travel – knowing that you’ll be carrying a bunch of other things – can be quite a challenge. Aside from your tablet, smartphone and laptop, here are four of the best gadgets you have to carry with you to be more productive, to keep your devices charged and stay connected while you are away from home or from the office:
1.       Power Bank or Battery Bank
While many airports, hotel lobbies, caf├ęs and whatnot have power sockets that can be used to charge your devices, it is way better to have a portable power bank at hand. This is especially important when you’d be spending long hours on the road or someplace where electricity is not available — on an island maybe or at the top of a mountain. Thing is, you need to keep that battery bank handy to power up your gadgets.

2.       Universal Adapter
If you are the occasional “international” traveler, you would know the importance of having a universal adapter. It could be really frustrating if you don’t have one at hand. An adapter is a connector that changes the plug shape to match the outlet. As simple as it is, but you cannot underestimate its significance.

3.       WiFi Router / Mobile Broadband
You can never miss the importance of staying connected wherever and whenever. Free Wi-Fi hotspots are often weak and not secured, leaving your devices prone to attack. You can take the risk or go prepared by carrying a WiFi Router of your own. Hotels often charge per gadget if you want to connect to their Wi-Fi. Having your own router will keep you away from additional charges, especially when you travel with a companion or with a group.
A wireless mobile broadband could be your other choice. Establish internet connection wherever you are through a mobile phone network. This means connection is supplied to you to quite a large area so long as you receive good 3g or 4g signal from the carrier you choose.

4.       Bluetooth Headphone
The way to a peaceful travel is to shut the surrounding noise. If you want to filter out the noise from the snoring person next to you, or the crying baby, or the fighting couple on the plane or on the bus, wear a Bluetooth headphone and then play your favorite song. One of the advantages of Bluetooth headphone is to keep you away from the hassle of tangling cords, especially if you have to be mindful of the so many things you are carrying.

Bonus Tip: If you want to travel light and leave your bulky and heavy laptop at home, invest on a tablet keyboard. This means less weight and less hassle.

How to Take Better Care of your iPhone

Your iPhone is one of the things you ought to keep in good condition, especially if you want to lengthen its life as well as to ensure you still get the best resale value when you think it’s time to upgrade to a new one. 


So to make sure that your iPhone is kept in good condition, here are some simple tips:

1. Get a Case
Bumps, drops, and other accidental scenarios could cause little to serious damages to your iPhone. A case will protect your device from these. When you buy a protective case, the most important thing to consider is durability – not how fancy or how beautiful it looks. You can ask yourself what kind of a phone user are you. Do you often drop your iPhone? Do you throw it around? Make sure you choose a case based on how you treat your iPhone.
There are several types of cases and they come in many shapes, sizes, or colors. From skins, to bumpers, to clip-ons or to as simple as pouches, the important thing is the case should offer enough protection to keep your iPhone working.
2. Use a screen protector
Keep your screen free from scratches and double up on the protection using a screen protector. This is the most basic and the first thing that you need to do as soon as you get your iPhone. Scratches on your iPhone screen definitely impacts its value in the long run. So it pays to invest on screen protectors.
3. Keep your iPhone cool
If you’re using your iPhone too much, there’s a chance that it may heat too much as well. This is a common problem though. Overheating could cause a myriad of damages to your iPhone, especially the life of the battery.
The iPhone is designed to work properly between 0oC and 35oC. If you feel that your iPhone is starting to heat up, try turning it off for some time, move it to a cooler environment and then turn it on back again. Consider closing the apps that you are not using. You can do this by pressing the home button twice. You will see your most recently used apps. Swipe left to find the app you want to close and then swipe up the app’s preview to close.
4. Charge your iPhone properly
Oftentimes, users forget to pull the plug when the battery is already fully charged. Make it a habit that when it reaches 100%, pull the plug. Charging your iPhone while it is in certain cases can generate excess heat. This can affect the battery capacity so make sure that when you charge it, take it out of its case first.
Proper care and maintenance along with the other useful accessories will keep your device in good condition. The responsibility is always first on the user – how you use it and how you treat it. If you want to lengthen the life of your iPhone, be careful on using it and take care of it the best possible way you can.
