Gotta Have Travel Gadgets & Digital Accessories
Headed for a getaway? Traveling for business, pleasure or both? Whether you’re making your way by plane, train, automobile, or even your own two feet, no trip is complete these days without digital accessories. One thing is true: You—and your stuff—are going places.
Luckily, the latest and greatest gear makes it easy for you to live and travel comfortably. Having any of these devices on your trip can help you minimize stress, reduce your load, and travel smarter. Here are some great sidekicks to help make the journey pain-free.
|Smartphone’s, Tablet’s and other smart-device batteries don’t always last through a busy day,
but a pocket-size USB battery pack can give your device enough of a boost to survive the evening.
And don’t forget to pickup a few micro USB cables!
|One of the reasons most people prefer carrying around a tablet as opposed to a laptop is the superior
battery life you get from a tablet. Excluding Chromebooks, most laptops can go for only about 2.5 hours before
you have to plug it in, whereas most can get almost a full day’s use out of a Kindle, Samsung Galaxy Tab or an iPad.
| A Chromebook is a laptop of a different breed. Instead of Windows 10 or Mac OS X, Chromebooks run
Google’s Chrome OS. These machines are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet,
with most applications and documents living in the cloud. As a result, these clam-shells don’t have a ton
of on-board storage, but they don’t have very large price tags, either.
| Choosing a main go-to camera, most pros and serious enthusiasts still gravitate to full-frame, pro-caliber
DSLRs. But when you’re traveling, hiking, or simply enjoying your vacation, the prospect of toting a top-tier
DSLR outfit can be daunting. Fortunately, technology has come to the rescue and there is now a wide variety
of more compact, lightweight, travel-friendly cameras that deliver outstanding image quality and shooting
performance in far more convenient form factors.
