Must Have Travel Gadgets for Summer

Must Have Travel Gadgets for Summer

Memorial Day weekend marks unofficial start to summer. Kick off your summer well, with these cool gadgets:

WiFi Router
Tired of looking for a secure Wi-Fi network during your travels? A Wi-Fi hotspot, such as TP-LINK Wireless Travel Router, creates a wireless network from your standard hotel Ethernet connection, giving your multiple wireless devices a stable network connection.






Underwater Camera

Staying a float usually takes two hands and a bit of movement. Both make it harder to take clear underwater shots. This camera and mask combo lets you shoot with just one hand. And since it is already on your face and has your view whenever you turn, you don't have to find the object in the viewfinder. Just look and click.


An Action Camera
For taking videos above water as well as some in the water activity shots, and action cam is a great gadget. You would want one with great stability and resolution as the objects would be moving quite a bit as well as the videographer.

Travel-Proof Compact Camera

This camera can go under water over 30 feet. Shockproof when dropped from around 5 feet. Has a 5x image stabilized zoom, which makes it great for taking shots on the move.


Open up multiple plugin sockets with this useful travel accessory. Instead of just charging one device via a wall outlet, you would be able to charge 2 or 3 at once. Keep your important gadgets juiced up and ready to go.

Water Safe Containers

Hard-shell waterproof container is great for camping, boating, poolside or at the beach. It holds money, credit cards and keys while you enjoy fun in the sun.


The stay dry bag is a clear vinyl waterproof bag that can hold phones as well as cameras, mp3 players, and more



Outdoor Speaker and Charger in One

Outdoor speakers are great for travel as they are rugged shock-proof and water-resistant. And like the speakers depicted above, have great sound to listen to the tunes with your buds. Moreover, these wireless speakers can even charge your other mobile devices on the go via its built-in USB port and 6000mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery that provides more than 12 hours of playback time.

Swiss Army Knife -
its a classic multi-tool. Everything you need and more within one device. Now it also comes with tech gadgets such as USB, flashlight, digital clock and thermometer. I think it is one of the most useful non-electronic gadgets and great to have everywhere. Swiss Army knife reinvented. Though make sure that when flying you pack it into your checked luggage.
TSA regulations on what can and cannot be brought on board

Did You Know?:
Chances of getting struck by lightning are 1:700,000. Chances of getting skin cancer 1:5. Sunscreen should definitely be a must have travel accessory when traveling this summer.

Don't Get Caught Out Without One - Universal Travel Adapter

The Ultimate Traveling Buddy: Travel Adapters

Traveling internationally without one? You might as well toss out all your electronic gadgets. Most places outside of U.S. have outlets quite different than what we are used to. Not only do they look different, but they also have a different voltage. In Europe as well as many other countries the voltage is between 220 and 240 volts. See Did You Know? below for information on voltage in certain countries. And you would not want to plug in your 120v gadget into a 220v outlet. This is twice that of the voltage used for ordinary lighting and low-power appliances in the US, Canada and most of the Americas, and also Japan. Not unless you would like to have a smoldering pile of plastic. Plus you would not be able to plug it in directly as the shape of the outlets and the insertion points are also different. See picture below of various types.




For easier packing and traveling, a great option is a Universal Worldwide Travel Adapter that has multiple variations at once.
Features:
- Worldwide compatibility (US, UK, EU, AU, USB Port)
- 100-125 and 220-250 volt standards
- Surge protection and safety shutter
- compact design

Did you know?  Electric Power Around The World



Voltage and frequency:
  220-240 V/60 Hz
  220-240 V/50 Hz
  100-127 V/60 Hz
  100-127 V/50 Hz

"Note that currently, all new American buildings, in fact, get 240 volts split into two 120 volts "hot" wires (often called "legs") with a common neutral wire. Major appliances, such as virtually all drying machines and ovens, are now connected to 240 volts. " - answers
