You’ve researched where to go, booked your break, packed your case and sorted your transport to the airport. The only thing missing is one of these handy gadgets to revolutionise the way you travel.
Keep it charged with the Zendure A2 Power Bank
Your phone is the one thing you won’t be leaving home without. Keep it stocked up with juice with this high performance power bank that will charge your phone at least twice in one charge.
The perfect balance of price, portability and capacity, tech giant PC Advisor has hailed this one of the best in the UK for the last four years running.
Recommended retail price: £26*
Stay connected with the TP Link Mi-Fi Device
Data roaming is shockingly expensive. Ditch the scary mobile phone bills when you return from your travels and invest in a Mi-Fi 4G device. As your very own wi-fi hotspot, the TP-Link M7350 features an LCD screen to let you know how much charge and signal you have, in addition to allowing you to connect up to ten devices on one SIM.
It’s also unlocked meaning you can use any UK SIM, as well as local pay as you go ones to really keep costs down.
Recommended retail price: £70
Keep entertained with an e-reader
We don’t think e-readers will ever drop off travel gadget lists as they’re just that useful. If you’re an Amazon fan, the Kindle Voyage or pricier, higher-spec Oasis are both good options for downloading from Amazon’s books range. If you don’t like being tied down to one library, the Kobo Aura HD lets you download from a range of sources. Plus if you’re always on the go and like a book to hand, opt for a model with Wi-Fi and 4G to access your bestsellers with ease.
Recommended retail price: Kindle Voyage: £169, Kindle Oasis £269, and Kobo Aura HD £130.
Protect it with the LifeProof Phone Cover
Many of us have been there. Exploring faraway places with skies filled with sunshine, when the next minute, it buckets with rain and you get soaked. Keep your phone protected with the waterproof cover from LifeProof. Not only does it keep water out, it protects your gadget from dirt, shocks and snow for the ultimate hard-wearing protection. Available for a range of Apple iPhone and tablet devices, as well as Samsung phones.
Recommended retail price (depending on device) from £50.
Stay organised with the Airpocket carry on
It’s a familiar scene. You board the plane, make your way to your seat but queues stop you from getting there. No matter what plane you board, there’s always that one passenger blocking the aisle to get their magazine, tablet, earphones and snacks out for the flight. Keep your travels organised with the Australian-designed Airpocket carry on. Designed to house the essentials in a compact case which fits in the seat pocket, you can ensure stress-free boarding for you - and other travellers.
