These 5 Travel Gadgets Will Improve Your Next Trip Tremendously

If you spend a lot of your time on the run, whether for business or for fun, you already know how much easier it can be with the right technology. We know you’ve already downloaded all the free game apps you could find, and that you’ve been carrying those five extra phone batteries around in your bag for a few years now, but here are some newer gadgets that might make your layovers, stay-overs, navigation and transportation abroad a lot more enjoyable.

1. Apple AirPort Express

This pocket-sized device was originally marketed as an extender for existing Wi-Fi, but it functions as a wireless station on its own. All you have to do is plug that trusty Ethernet cable into the tiny white box, and the tiny white box into an electrical outlet, and you’re free to roam the webs. Say goodbye to daily hotel internet fees and slow airport public Wi-Fi forever; you can now carry your very own network in your pocket.

2. Kensington ComboSaver Portable Notebook Lock

According to FBI statistics, a laptop computer is stolen about every 53 seconds in the United States. How often have you just left it for a minute while you took a bathroom break? Probably quite a few times. The Kensington security system plugs in easily and has a combination lock. It’s light wait and has a 6-foot coiling cable.

3. Mophie Space Pack

Finally, the device you’ve been waiting for. This is the one that transports you into space with just the touch of a button. Ok, obviously not, but close. The Space Pack doubles the life of your iPhone battery, doubles your data storage and contains a companion app that allows you to access any files from your computer that you’ve downloaded – anything from PDFs to movies.

4. Able Planet Linx Fusion Noise-Canceling Headphones

Everyone knows that a good set of noise-cancelling headphones are key to tolerating a trans-global flight. What would you do if that baby didn’t stop crying for 17 hours? These headphones from Able Planet transmit sound through your ear, skin and bone rather than traditional sound waves, which makes for clear sound no matter how loud it may be.

5. Sekonix DLP Pico Keychain Projector

This is the world’s smallest projector, and it goes right on your keychain. It can project movies, home videos or pictures onto any flat surface from your phone, tablet or computer. Turn your airport gate into a movie theater, and you won’t might flight delays at all.
