Every traveler needs electronics

Never be without power and Anker PowerCore Portable Charger will ensure that. With it’s high speed capabilities, it will charge up to 3 USB devices simultaneously. It’s durable, made of quality material, holds its charge for days, and can last for years when used and stored properly.

Power Strip

The Belkin Power Strip is a handy device that can charge up 5 devices (3 US outlet plugs and 2 USB) and is surge protected. It’s extremely useful when only 1 outlet is available at the airport, or limited outlets in a hotel (plus everything is all in one place, which reduces the changes of leaving something behind because it’s plugged in that’s in a different wall).

Noise Canceling Headphones

Another must have when traveling is noise canceling headphones. The never ending airplane buzz and other noise (-y people) can be distracting and disturb sleep, reading a book, watching a movie…. all the things that are more pleasant without extra noise in the background.

This cube device is fantastic for the international traveler and the Universal Power Adapter will be used everyday. Compatible with most electronics (but don’t go plugging in a hair dryer, an iron or anything that needs more power), this little device is very helpful for daily overseas traveling life.


Still a big must have for travelers is a camera. Especially for those adventurous travelers that want a camera that can be hands free, small, and light weight. The latest edition of the GoPro Hero9 is a huge upgrade from the older generation. And by using the GoPro App, you’ll have your pictures uploaded to your phone and social medias in no time.

Happiness happens when you find something you lost. And these tile trackers are a game changer when trying to find that lost luggage, keys, wallet, or worse a travel pack that has your passport.
