You love gadgets, and that love is about to be increased tenfold if you also love to travel. The best new travel gadgets are out and they will make your globe trotting adventures even more amazing. Pack up your iPad and smart phone and hit the road, rails, and air with some new toys.
Increase Your Phone’s Battery Life
You’re going to need your phone for directions and reservations. Mophie has taken their battery packs and combined them with increased storage so your phone won’t die and you’ll have room for hundreds of pictures and videos. It’s also going to have enough room for storing movies for long flights or train rides and all of your favorite music to tune out your noisy neighbors in the hotel. An accompanying app ties in with iTunes and your existing photo gallery so you’re not having to manually move everything around.
Bring Your Entire Digital Movie Collection
When you have kids, movies are critical to a relatively peaceful journey. Nothing hushes up a chorus of “Are we there yet?” than some devices playing Daniel Tiger and Frozen. However, unless you want to have the same three movies on repeat for the duration of your vacation, the space on your tablets probably isn’t enough to keep everyone happy. The LaCie Fuel is a compact device with up to 1TB of storage, more than enough room for movies and even entire seasons of your favorite TV shows. It holds up to 500 movies and can play on five different devices at the same time.
Have WiFi Almost Anywhere
Sounds like a dream come true, right? Apple and all of its genius has created a little gadget that can save your sanity, especially if you travel for work. The Airport Express extends the range of available WiFi or becomes its own “base station”. All you have to do is plug an ethernet cable into the box and then plug the box into the outlet. When you turn your computer on, it will connect to the Airport Express and you’ll have your own WiFi. Genius!
Save Your Phone from Drowning
Whether you’re going to the beach or just staying in swanky hotels with swimming pools, your phone is bound to have an accident eventually. The Optrix iPhone Suit is a clear case that protects your phone from high impact falls and a swim in water up to 15 feet in depth. This is a must have even if you’re going someplace notoriously snowy like Calgary. According to Hotel Calgary’s website, they have a swimming pool and a whirlpool, so keep your precious phone safe even when you’re venturing into colder climates.
You let technology make your life easier in every day life, so don’t let yourself be stranded in a strange place without everything you need. Thanks to technology, you can have almost every technological comfort of home no matter how far away you are.
