Travelling is all about seeing new places and having enjoyable experiences, but there is no doubt about it: you will have a better trip if you pack well and are prepared for whatever new experiences you may encounter. Technology has become so advanced that it would be a waste not to use it to our advantage, which is why I would like to bring five different products to your attention:
Mophie Space Pack- This is the worlds first battery case with built in storage for the iPhone 5/5s. This handy case doubles the battery life of your phone and doubles the data storage of up to 64GB of additional storage. There is also an app that you can use with the Space Pack that lets you manage and organize what is in the pack’s storage and even share files. While using this app, you can store, organize, or transport any type of file directly from your computer.
SteriPEN Ultra- In under one minute this device eliminates over 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa that cause water-borne illness. The SteriPEN Ultra is simple to use, you just press a button, submerge the UV lamp in water and wait for the lamp to go off; when it’s done a smile flashes at you from the screen and then it is safe to drink the water. The battery life will last sterilizing up to 50 liters of water and you can recharge it using a computer, outlet, or portable solar panel. The UV lamp will last up to 8,000 one liter treatments. This device works so well it received the Water Quality Association’s Gold Seal, certifying its effectiveness.
Compact Cube Universal Travel Adaptor- This small cube has a blade adaptor that allows you to adapt the plug blades of any device to that of the local power wall socket. The face of the adaptor has two and three bladed power plugs from the US, UK, EU, Australia, and China. The other end has four sets of plug blades that correspond to the same plug design. This cube is rated for 8 amps and can handle 830 watts of power (at 110VAC) or 1750 watts (at 230 VAC). This is compact and eliminates the need to buy a bunch of different adaptors.
Innergie PocketCell Duo- This compact gadget lets you charge 2 devices at once without an electrical outlet. There are duo USB power ports that allow you to charge tablets, smart phones, mp3 players, portable game consoles, GPS, and more. Another important aspect about this device is that you will not have to worry about unstable voltage when you are charging because the smart charge feature detects the type of device the PotcketCell is connected to and delivers the correct amount of power.
Trackdot Luggage- This is a very handy gadget if you are using an air plane while travelling. You just need to pack this little device into your suitcase and it will constantly monitor the cellular network to determine its location. If you are stopping in multiple cities and catching connecting flights, there is an app that you can use that can track where your luggage is. Depending on what you pick, you will receive either a text message or e-mail confirming that your luggage has arrived with you.
These gadgets are all so small that you will not feel a difference when lugging around your luggage, but they are so convenient that they will make a huge difference during your daily travels.
