Top 3 Travel Gadgets You Cannot Leave Home Without


Are you a gadget junkie? If you are, you really wouldn’t want to leave home without these!

1) Portable Battery Charger

These days, we cannot live without our mobile phones, and for some others, our mobile phones AND tablets. When the battery on our devices run out, we feel (almost) helpless. If you know what I’m talking about and you don’t always have one, get yourself a portable charger. Those who have the brick-like ones, you should certainly consider the new credit card-sized VoltReady portable battery that promises enough power to give your phone 1.5 full charges and even fits in your wallet!

Those who love the outdoors and have difficulty getting to a power source, you will love solar chargers. As long as you’ve got sun, you will have power. The WakaWaka Power+ solar charger can give your phone a full charge or up to 150 hours of light on the flashlight setting.

2) Victorinox Jetsetter 3-Pocket Knife

The swiss knife is always a lifesaver and there’s finally a TSA-friendly one that we can actually take on airplanes. The Victorinox Jetsetter packs tweezers, toothpick, scissors, key ring, screwdriver tip, bottle opener, and wire stripper into one tiny tool. Your next alternative would be the Wenger Swiss Army Knife.

3) Mini Tripod

Want to take your tripod but it weighs a ton, doesn’t it? Consider something like the Kenu Stance, a tripod made for smartphones. It is not only feathery light, when compared to the traditional tripod, it also folds down smaller than a pack of gum. On top of that, it mounts right into your phone’s charging point. No more shaky smartphone videos or photos!
