Travel is fun, whether you’re traveling alone or with loved ones. Traveling is one of my passions, and I believe it’s a great way to discover new cultures and cuisines. However, traveling alone for the first time can be pretty scary, so you may need some reassurance before you do. So without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn more about some gadgets that every traveler needs.
1. Cable organizer
If you’ve ever put your earphone and cable in your bags, you know the hassle and hellscape of detangling cords. Removing your cable at the bottom of your bag in a cramped plane in economy is also a nightmare, and this is where this specific gadget comes in clutch.
A cable organizer is like a bag for all your cables. It allows you to keep your adapters and cables tucked away easily in respective pouches. It also allows you to remove and place your cables back in the place safely without elbowing your neighbors. It also makes packing and unpacking a breeze, and you don’t have to look for your cables under a pile of stuff.
2. Portable charger
Okay, this one is a bit redundant because we believe that everyone should have a portable charger with them at all times. We all had our phones die on us, and we know the struggle of having to get through the day without using them. We all depend a lot on our phones, and having them die on us can disorient us greatly.
In your day-to-day life, having your phone die on you is a minor inconvenience, but in a foreign country, this is a complete disaster. When traveling, some of the apps you use the most, like your translating app, Spotify, or your GPS, are some of the biggest battery consumes out there, and this is why you need to have a portable charger with you. It is your lifeline, especially when you are in a foreign country and don’t understand the language.
3. Kindle Paperwhite
This is where the Kindle Paperwhite comes in handy. It saves you from having to carry around multiple physical books. With it, you have access to all your books on a single gadget. Buying an e-book is also much cheaper than buying a physical copy of a book and is an environmentally friendly thing to do.
As someone who loves reading, this comes in handy when I’m traveling, and it allows me to read without filling my bag with 30 books. You can even check out e-books from libraries through your Kindle. As a Kindle user, you also have access to the lending library through which you can borrow e-books, and they have an extensive library of over 600,000 e-books.
In my opinion, investing in a Kindle Paper is something everyone should do, especially if you love books. It’s a nice and cheap way to read books, and any e-books you buy are stored in your Kindle library. It also has a night light feature, perfect for reading at night, and won’t bother your neighbor on the flight.
4. Extra long charging cable
If you’ve traveled before, you know the struggle of having to sit on the floor to use your phone because the charging cable doesn’t reach your bed. If I’m having a bad day, this can be my 13th reason why. But jokes aside, an extra-long charging cable is a real lifesaver and is something that all of us need.
Not all hotel outlets are next to the bed; depending on the hotel, the outlet may be in a weird and hard-to-reach place. This is why having an extra few feet of cable can feel like a lifeline when you are in dire need of using your phone and lying in bed because you are still jet-lagged from your plane ride.
5. Noise-canceling earphones
There is a wide range of noise-canceling earphones on the market. This device is very useful when you want to avoid the noise around you and focus on what you are doing. It is especially useful if you’ve traveled to a busy city and your hotel is next to the main road. Whether you want to ignore the noise of the party in the apartment above you or go someplace to read, this device can be an absolute godsend.
These interesting devices can comfortably fit your ears, and you can wear them for longer periods of time compared to standard headphones. They also have Bluetooth connectivity and audio input for appropriate situations. You can purchase them for a price ranging from $6 to $250. So make sure you choose one that fits your budget and offers good value for money.
