Ah yes, it’s that momentous time again when you pack your bags, wave your consistent life goodbye for a while, and go on vacation. You can go to Las Vegas or Sri Lanka, by plane or by foot. However, despite your idea of a vacation, being world’s apart from the next person’s, one thing is for sure: you saved room in your bags for a few gadgets.
Honestly, why wouldn’t you? We’re living amidst the technical revolution, and our lives revolve around technology. There is one problem though; packaging constraints force you to only take along a few gadgets with you. So, what should you pack? How about something from our list of the top five gadgets to bring when traveling.
1. MACALLY Battery Pack
To start you off, let’s talk about something people need. A lot of the time, people neglect to bring along this important item with them on holiday – a battery pack. Sure, you remember to bring the charger for each one of your gadgets, but the truth is they won’t come in handy on every occasion. You might be in a hotel room where the plugs don’t work, or some other place where the power keeps fluctuating and the risk of short circuiting your device is too big to take. I can not put enough stress on the need for packing a battery pack with you while you’re on holiday and what better battery pack than the MACALLY battery pack. This cost-efficient, yet long-lasting battery pack has a 2600mAh battery capacity to fully charge your Apple iPhone in 1.5 hours. This battery pack takes up least space, in fact, you can just use it as hand luggage. Features include an integrated lightning connector to support your iPhone & iPod; built-in battery level LED indicator and a mini USB cable.
2. Fitbit Flex Activity Wristband
While traveling, we sometimes get so immersed in our shift from a consistent life, that we tend to stop focusing for a minute or two. That’s where the Fitbit Flex Activity Wristband comes in handy. Whether it’s how much you walked, how much you eat or how much you slept that day, your Fitbit keeps track of it all.
This list revolves around the top gadgets that would put the traveler at ease, and it wouldn’t have been complete without noise canceling headphones. Whether it’s to block out whatever the guy next to you on the plane is saying or to listening to music, one thing’s for sure, you won’t be a nuisance to anyone else, and they definitely won’t be a nuisance to you. The Bose QuietComfort 25 noise-cancelling headphones are our top pick for this category. They’re long-lasting, super efficient and look amazing. Trifecta!
4. Samsung Galaxy S5
The first thing (probably the only thing) you double check to make sure you’ve brought along with you before you locked your apartment, was your phone. For traveling, no phone is better than the Samsung Galaxy S5. You would have to pay full price on T-mobile, but the service plans are tremendously better than those for other United States services. Free texting and data in more than 120 countries by simply turning on your phone and enabling roaming. You won’t be charged for a thing.
And finally, something that’ll keep your travels forever. The GoPro Hero 4 camera is a modern alternative to whatever your dad used in the 1980’s. Today, you can use the GoPro anywhere and at anytime to take insanely good videos with. Not only that, but it’s extremely easy to handle and to use. Worth every penny.
And don’t worry plenty more from me, I’m back!
