Are you taking off on a big trip this summer?
Part of getting prepared to travel is planning and prepping the gadgets you need for your trip. And in a gadget driven world, you do need them.
This looks super cool. The thinnest and lightest Kindle ever, the Kindle Oasis has a high res 300ppi display with crisp, laser quality text that reads like paper, without glare, even in direct sunlight.
It has a new ergonomic design with dedicated buttons to effortlessly turn the page, and the longest battery life of any Kindle.
It is pretty much perfect to travel with because it is so thin and so lightweight.
At the time of writing this the Kindle Oasis is available for pre-order, and is being bundled with a free trial of Kindle Unlimited, which gives you unlimited free books every month for $9.99
I have been traveling with my regular iPad for ages, but love the idea of sizing down to the more handbag friendly iPad Mini.
Powercube 4 Outlet USB Power Strip
Make friends at the airport with this easy to pack charger that takes USBs and regular plugs. Super handy to travel with, the Powercube is your perfect travel mate. At only $24.95 its super affordable too.
Insignia Global Travel Adapter Kit
If you are traveling overseas you need to pack an international power adapter. All of your electronics, your phone chargers, laptops, curling irons – all of it needs to be plugged into an international power adapter. Different countries have different plugs for electronics as well as different power strengths, so without an adapter you can’t plug in.
Lstn Wood Noise Isolating Headphones
These are incredibly cool and super chic.
I got mine from my Zoe Report Box Of Style. Each pair is made from reclaimed wood from high end furniture manufactures and wood floor manufacturers, and each pair sold helps restore the hearing of a child in need through The Starkey Foundation.
They also offer free worldwide shipping with no minimum purchase.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones
I love these. They make all the difference in the world when you are on an international flight (or just a long flight). They completely delete the buzz of the plane’s engines, as well as the snoring from the guy seated next to you, and the screaming baby in front of you. You can just chill and listen to your music or the movie you are watching. They have an added benefit that once they’re on no one bothers you or tries to talk to you.
I learned the hard way last year that you need to get a small, lightweight external battery charger for your phone.
I had a larger version of the Anker Battery Charger with a huge number of mAh, but it was really a lot of extra weight in my bag each day, so this year I am traveling with the Anker Power Core Lipstick Sized Portable Charger.
Anker makes a great product, and the size and weight of this one is much better for travel.
I ordered a rose gold one to match my iPhone, and got it through Amazon for $9.95
