Look around you, and chances are almost everyone traveling today has an electronic device that simplifies their lives. Smart devices are certainly changing the way we travel and the contents of our traveling checklists.
Traveling with tech can be a real pain in the neck if you don’t know the trick out. Sometimes we feel like carrying the whole house with us.
Here are six gadgets that can help you on your journey, making your trip a memorable one.
1. Skyroamm Solis X: Portable Wi-Fi Hot-spot
The strain of staying online can be hectic when traveling. Network hitches on cellular networks become more frequent, and public Wi-Fi poses an even greater danger. The best option is a portable Wi-Fi hot-spot.
Skyroam Solis X is a wireless portable Wi-Fi hot-spot that is made for travel. It is a small device that keeps you connected no matter where you are. You turn it on and activate a prepaid day pass that grants you access to the unlimited Internet for a full 24 hours.
It connects to cellular networks in more than 120 countries and uses those networks to provide you access to roaming-free, worry-free wireless Internet anywhere you go, whether you are driving, on a plane, or train.
The good news is that you have the choice to either buy it outright or just rent it for a special trip. A new Skyroamm is about $149, with a day pass charge of $8 or an option of $99 per month. A single Skyroam allows connection of up to five devices.
Skyroam Solis X has made the deal even better. It is pocket-size with a 4G Wi-Fi connection, 4700 mAh power bank, remote camera, and a connection to 130 countries.
2. Bestek Universal Travel Adapter
When making international trips, one item you should always bring with you is a power adapter. It would be best if you powered those laptops, computers, phones and any other electronics you are carrying along.
Bestek International Portable Charger has three standard wall outlets and four USB ports. It also comes with three international adapters and a universal power plug to enable charging regardless of the country you are traveling to.
3. Nest Home Monitoring
On the surface, a nest home monitoring system is not too different from a traditional security system; you have a keypad to enter your code, different arming modes from when you are at home, and when you are away, a battery in case the power goes out and motion detectors.
What makes this different is the amount of control you have. The devices all connect easily to one app, making it easier to control all of them from one point. The motion detectors have inbuilt light, so you don’t have to turn on the lights and disturb others at night. In case you forget to set the alarm when you are leaving, the app will notify you, and you can do so from your phone.
4. Smart Suitcase
There are items that you shouldn’t use when traveling. The smart suitcase is intelligently designed to provide intelligent solutions to travelers. Each essential has its dedicated spot such that you can easily reach out and grab anything without struggling to search.
It also has a double zipper locking mechanism for optimum security. What’s more, the front compartment is 100% crash proof.
5. GoPro HERO7 HD Waterproof Action Camera
With a new hyper smooth feature, GoPro HERO7 Black – Waterproof Action Camera improves the stability of the photos and videos taken by the camera. It has three stabilization options: hyper smooth, eis, and no stabilization. Besides, it has a new timewarp feature – hyper-lapse -which combines and refines various time-lapse pictures.
6. Portable Charger
Admit it, and your smartphone does not last as long as you want it. Today’s solution for many is portable chargers. Not all batteries are created equal, so which power bank is right for you?
The most important thing to consider is capacity, get the highest capacity charger based on your budget and how portable you need it. Anker PowerCore 15600 and RAVPower stand out as companies doing an excellent job on the capacity-volume front. Also, consider the charging speed.
