Electronic travel gadgets
If you're travelling overseas, then a power adaptor could well be essential. For example, if you're travelling from the U.S. to Australia, you're definitely going to need one. Otherwise, your hairdryer and other electrical items you take with you aren't going to work, as the power voltage in Australia is different than it is in the U.S. A power adaptor plugs into the power point and converts your electrical item's voltage into the foreign country's voltage, meaning you can use your hairdryer or other appliance without a problem.
Mobile WiFi Finder
If you need to take your laptop with you on your trip, an easy way to find a wifi hotspot is to take a mobile wifi finder with you. And the best part is, it's the size of a keychain! So no more powering up your laptop while you desperately search the sky for a wifi connection. With this wifi finder, all you have to do is turn it on and watch for a connection. Easy!
Electric Travel Jug
If you love a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate, then a travel jug can come in handy, depending on where you're travelling to. For instance, countries like Australia and the U.K. usually provide an electric jug in your room so you can make your own tea, coffee and hot chocolate whenever you feel like it. But in case you're travelling where an electric jug isn't standard equipment in hotel rooms, bed-and-breakfasts or hostels, a travel jug isn't just convenient, but it can also save you money. Just make sure you take a power adaptor with you so you can actually use your travel jug if you're travelling overseas.

Portable Door Lock
If you're worried about the security of your hotel or hostel room while you're travelling, then a portable door lock may ease your fears. Once you're inside your room, you attach it to the door strike plate, engage the lock and you are now safe and secure in your hotel room. Now you won't have to worry about thieves breaking into your hotel room at night and stealing your valuables!
If you're planning on doing some laundry in your hotel room, then a travel clothesline may be your new best friend. It's so easy to wash out a few clothes in the basin and hang them up to dry overnight when you're travelling. And a travel clothesline will let you hook it up and then allow you to use its twisting length to secure the clothes in lieu of pegs. It's so compact and lightweight, it will barely take up any room in your bag!
