5 Of the best tech gadgets to travel with:
1. A Kindle or Kobo
If you don’t want to use up your smart phone’s battery by reading books on your smartphone, you may want to pack a Kindle or Kobo e-reader when you travel for work or for leisure. As both devices can comfortably store thousands of books and can hold their charge for several weeks. Which means that you’ll never have to charge your Kindle or Kobo when you’re on holiday.
Better yet both Kindle and Kobo e-readers have been designed to be as lightweight as possible and are lighter than your standard paperback book. Lastly, both e-readers have been designed to be as gentle on your eyes as possible.
2. A smartphone
Not only can you use your smartphone to store important information such as a screenshot of your passport and details about your travel itinerary, plane flights, and accommodation but you can also use your smartphone to take travel photos and to connect with your friends and family members back home.
You can even download a variety of apps which will make traveling a breeze. As an example, you’ll be able to use Google Maps to get directions to the attractions which you plan on visiting and you’ll also be able to use Google Translate in order to translate any signs which you can’t understand. Which will make navigating foreign cities a lot easier, than it used to be in the past.
Just be sure to remember to pack your smartphones charger and an extra battery pack, so that you’ll never miss out on a photo opportunity due to a smartphone which has run out of battery.
3. A travel adapter
If you plan on charging your electronics such as your laptop, tablet, smartphone, shaver or hair straightener it’s well worth packing a travel adapter, which will allow you to charge your electronic devices on different continents. As different countries feature different power sockets which won’t be compatible with your electronic devices.
It’s also well worth getting into the habit of traveling with a smartwatch, which you’ll be able to use in order to keep up to date with your emails, text messages, and calls from back home. As an added advantage, most smartwatches feature a built-in heart rate monitor and pedometer, which means you’ll be able to track the metrics of all of your workouts whilst you’re traveling. Which is handy if you plan on keeping up your workout regime whilst you’re traveling overseas!
5. A pair of Bluetooth headphones
If you plan on listening to music whilst you’re traveling by plane or train, it’s well worth shopping around for a pair of wireless, Bluetooth headphones.
In conclusion, it’s definitely well worth shopping around to find all five of the handy, travel-friendly tech gadgets which have been listed above!
