Stay Connected and Plugged in While On the Go

Updated on February 18, 2018

Here’s a list of suggested devices that can help one use their electronics while traveling.

Portable Speakers

The InnoFlask 2.0 is a sleek travel speaker that comes in a compact travel case and offers excellent sound quality with over ten hours of playing time.

Those looking for a more playful speaker might want to check out the UE Roll 2, a waterproof speaker that can hold up to 9 houses of battery life. A bungee cord allows one to hang this pretty much anywhere while an inflatable float allows one to take the speaker in the pool or hot tub.

For an inexpensive option, check out the HotShot, the most compact of Monster’s SuperStar line of portable wireless speakers. It comes with a carabiner clip so it can be attached to a backpack should one wish to hike accompanied by music.



Etymotic’s hf3 Earphones + Headset are high-performance noise-isolating earphones that are compatible with the latest technology for Apple’s iPhones and iPads. This model comes with a close-proximity high sensitivity microphone, so one can easily make calls on the go. The earphones come with an assortment of noise-isolating ear tips designed to fit just about anyone’s ears, a filter removal tool and replacement filters, and a pouch for easy storage of the earphones and accessories.

On2 monitor series headphones from thinksound features accurate professional sounding sound with a single button microphone and call/music control for mobile communication. The flexible metal headband with a faux leather overlay and memory foam ear pads offer a very comfortable fit. The two Kevlar® reinforced, tangle-resistant fabric cables (one with a mic control and one without) enable one to listen to music or make phone calls without getting one’s cables tangled. A cotton carrying pouch protects the headphones and stores the accompanying cables.

For a lesser priced comfortable pair of headphones, check out the House of Marley’s REBEL BT on-ear headphones. They have an in-line 1-button microphone for ease of making calls.


Portable Chargers and Charging Cases

RAVPower’s latest portable charger, the HyperAir sets the new standard for wireless charging by offering the fastest charging speeds on contact for both iOS and Android devices – all with the same charger. Those who need to keep their iPad and iPhone charged for long haul flights can pick up their 22000mAh 5.8A 3-port portable charger.

This charger can charge up to three devices simultaneously. Pair this with the Kanex DuraFlex line of durable and tangible lighting cables available for both Apple and Android devices.

iPhone and Samsung Galaxy owners looking to keep their smartphones charged all day long should check out Dog & Bone’s cases and charging pads. Their slim patterned cases can easily accommodate an rechargeable ultra-light battery for added power. Then at the end of the day, place one’s device on the wireless charge pad to charge the phone even faster than using a cable charge.

For shorter trips, pack along Ventev's 3000mAh portable battery with a built-in Apple Lightning cable. This device provides 12 hours of talk time without the need to pack along extra cables. For another compact charging option that takes up minimal space, pack along the Anker PowerCore+ 10050 portable charger.

Also, if one only needs a bit of extra juice, pack along the Lifecard or the Tylt Slim Boost.


Additional Accessories

For short trips, consider leaving the iPad or laptop behind and pack along the Logitech Keys-To-Go for iPhone. This is a standalone ultra-portable keyboard that is thin, light and durable. It tucks easily in a purse or briefcase without weighing one down. The keys have a tactile feedback fused into a water-repellant FabricSkin covering that helps to protect the keyboard from dirt and spills. The rechargeable battery can last up to three months on one charge.

Upon arrival at one's overseas destination, charge all one’s electronic devices with either the Ventev Global Charging Hub 300 orr the SKROSS: World Adapter MUV USB. Both adapters have dual USB ports, so one can charge two USB devices easily even if another device is connected via the adapter at the same time.
