Unplug to Recharge: Selecting Tech for a Getaway


Technology has taken over our lives like never before - from productivity, entertainment and social interaction! But sometimes we need time alone without distraction from gadgets; getaways offer us this chance. Selecting appropriate devices will enhance the experience without becoming disruptive; here is our essential list for any trip abroad!

1. Noise Cancelling Headphones 

Travelers on airplanes, trains and outdoor excursions can benefit significantly from noise-canceling headphones to create their own oasis of peace amidst any external sources of sound pollution. Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones have long been considered among the finest options due to their superior noise cancellation technology, quality sound reproduction capability and comfortable fit - qualities which should help create your ideal escape from daily noise pollution.

2. Portable Charger 

It is always prudent to carry an emergency power source - Anker's PowerCore 20100mAh portable charger is perfect! Thanks to its small form factor and lightweight build, its flexible nature enables it to charge multiple smartphones before needing its charge back!

3. E-Reader

Reading can be an incredible way to relax, and an e-reader makes bringing all your library with you easy and lightweight while staying within luggage weight limits. A popular consumer option for this task is Amazon Kindle Paperwhite due to its slim, lightweight design, glare-free display, and extended battery life - three attributes many travelers appreciate when traveling light.

4. Smartphone with an Amazing Camera

To keep memories from your journeys alive without carrying around an additional camera, smartphones with exceptional cameras such as the Apple iPhone 13 Pro or Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra offer convenient photographic memories capturing capabilities without an added weight burden - these options merit serious consideration in this category!

5. Portable Speaker for On the Go

A portable speaker can make music, podcasts and audiobooks portable so they can be enjoyed any place - be it beaches, pools or hotel rooms! We highly recommend the JBL Clip 4's compact design which features waterproof construction as well as impressive sound quality despite its small form factor.

Staying active when traveling is of utmost importance; fitness trackers provide an ideal solution! Devices like the Fitbit Charge 4 come equipped with great features like GPS functionality, heart rate monitor and sleep tracking capability to keep travelers active throughout their trip!

A travel router can be essential when connecting multiple devices while away at work or school, especially lightweight solutions like the TP-Link N300 which serves both range extender and access point functions.

8. Water purifier bottle

Staying hydrated on the go can be challenging, making clean drinking water even more essential. A water purifier like GRAYL Ultralight makes staying hydrated easier by rapidly purifying with just one press of its lid!

9. Smartphone Gimbal

If your trip involves shooting video on smartphones, an affordable gimbal such as the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 can come in very handy to produce smooth footage.

A drone such as the DJI Mavic Air 2 adds new dimensions to travel videos and photos with its compact form factor, lightweight construction, intelligent shooting functions and 34-minute flight time; giving more footage is captured per flight!
