Travel Tech Gear

So traveling the globe, I find that the right tech gear can be such a blessing at times. The mobile phone dies, your out of space on your memory card or you want to share pics with friends easily and without taking too much time from your day of sightseeing.

Here are some cool tech gadgets that I use and use frequently.

Sandisk USB 3.0 stick

The Sandisk USB/microUSB stick can plug into your mobile phone via the microUSB port (if you own an android or windows phone). For those iPhone users, you will need to use an adapter. This comes in a multiple sizes – 16GB, 32GB, 64Gb, 128GB. I purchased the 32GB for 9Euros here in Spain. It is fast to transfer from your phone and then just plug it into your laptop and copy away. This saves time if you have no wifi for cloud transfers. You can also copy pics to the stick and then plug into another phone and copy them over. Phone must be USB OTG compliant.


Solar Charger USB

This solar charger is awesome! Take it to the beach, park or just walking the city. I use mine at the beach to charge my bluetooth speaker or my phone. I also have a power bank I use if I am not taking a bag with me which is rare. The charge time for my phone on 25% battery is 1 hour. This may be a little large for short trips when you don’t take a bag with you. It also clips on the the back of your bag so you can charge while walking if you have good sun. 

A few points or differences why I use this over a power bank: This charger uses no battery thus never needing to be recharged itself. Power banks will eventually die because of the battery inside. This charger is water and dirt proof. And lastly, there is no negative effect on the environment.
