Whether you do it for work, for fun or both, travel and gadgets just seem to go hand-in-hand. Tech and various gadgets can make it easier and more convenient to travel, and more fun, and it seems like every month there are new introductions to the market that could transform your travel experience.
The following are some great travel gadgets and technology to consider right now, regardless of when your next trip might be.
Portable Headphone Amplifier
Most of us like to listen to music when we travel, but if you’re getting digital files from your computer, tablet or smartphone, you’ve likely noticed the quality is really diminished. A good way to boost the quality and give yourself a much better music-listening experience no matter where in the world you may be, or what you may be listening to is by investing in a portable DAC, which stands for digital-analog-converter.
This is a great piece of technology for any music lover, and when it’s portable, you can take it anywhere you go.
The Raden A22 Carry On Spinner
Just a few years ago did you ever think luggage could become high-tech? Yet it has. One of the coolest pieces of luggage available right now is the Raden A22 Carry On Spinner. This luggage is lightweight and looks super-chic, plus it has double-spinning wheels which are one of the best features a frequent traveler can have.
It also lets you charge devices using the suitcase itself, it has a TSA lock that’s part of the zipper, and you can even keep track of it using an app. It’s expensive, but it can certainly be a splurge that’s worth it for the frequent traveler.
If you’re looking for something that can go on your back and is less expensive but no less cool, there’s the Energy-Pro Power Backpack. It charges up to three devices at the same time with a lithium-ion battery, and it includes additions like a built-in cable routing channel. Plus the laptop compartment is designed to make TSA a bit easier.
GLiNEt Mini Router
The GLinet Mini Router is one of the cheapest gadgets on this list, and it’s just lots of fun to look at. Regarding functionality, it takes those potentially risky WiFi hotspots and turns them into a private and secure WiFi source. It weighs less than two ounces, and it’ll fit in the palm of your hands.
It comes in lots of bright colors as well.
Finally, if safety and security are big concerns when you travel, think about the tiny but powerful Mu Tag Loss Prevention Device. It’s an electronic tag with a smart chip that partners with an app so you can make sure you keep track of any important belongings. You can use it to keep up with anything from a car to your passport, and you can set up notifications on the app so that you’ll know if something is stolen or your forget it. It’s also rechargeable and the battery can be replaced.
