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.
