#2 Power strip with universal sockets

No Title

No Description

Whenever I travel there are never enough outlets in my hotel room. You also face the problem of having to carry multiple adapters if you have a cell phone, a camera, a laptop, a tablet and numerous other gadgets that need charging. 

That's why a power strip is absolutely essential! It means you only have to take one adapter with you, you'll never run out of outlets, and there is an extension cord if the outlet is positioned in a strange place in your hotel room that makes life that bit more difficult.

#3 Jackery Portable Charger

No Title

No Description

I was exploring in the middle of Bali, riding my motorbike with Google maps feeding instructions into my ear. It was bliss. 

That was, until I stopped hearing instructions. I had run out of phone battery! 

There are worse places to be lost than Bali, but it's scary when you're in a strange country, you don't speak the language, and you're stuck in the countryside with no idea where you came from and where you should be going. 

Thankfully everything worked out in the end with a lot of confused locals and finger pointing, 

But after that day, I bought a portable charger. I've never ended up in the same situation since. 

The Jackery Portable Charger comes with an iPhone cable and a micro USB cable. It can hold enough battery to get a full charge out of an iPhone.
