I’m not one to travel with many gadgets. As I’ve talked about before, both my phone and my laptop have seen better days. And those better days were back in 2010.
But there are some gadgets that I don’t mind spending my money on. The ones that actually do need updating regularly, or simply those that I just couldn’t travel without. The ones that make travel days and differing accommodation easier to handle. Here are my travel gadget essentials for every trip I take, long or short.
Mini Surge Protector
Before we set off on our trip, I never would have known how useful this thing would be. Not only does it protect you from blowing up sockets with electronics that have a different voltage to the country you’re visiting (trust me, we’ve had that happen before), but it also allows you to plug several gadgets into one plug without needed to use up every socket in the hostel room or coffee shop. Your wallet will thank you, and so will your fellow dorm mates or digital nomads.
