Traveling is one of the most amazing choices a person can make. There is a world of adventure and fun waiting for trekkers. In today’s vacation and business-friendly world, one can voyage virtually anywhere and at any time. Even better, vacationing represents an opportunity for people to bring all of their favorite electronic devices with them. Failing to bring a cell phone, tablet, camera and or charger(s) can result in frustration and substantially reduce the quality of a trip. If you are going on a business or a vacation excursion, be prepared to bring the best electronic devices to assure you will have a great time and stay connected with the friends and family that wish they could join you!
Cellular Phones Are a Must for Today’s Busy Traveler
It is almost unthinkable in this age of instant communication not to bring one’s cellular phone on holiday or travel. The age of alarm clocks may be all but over, and cell phones have taken their place. It is incredibly easy to alarm one’s phone to ensure that a person will arrive all business meetings and social gatherings on time and in control. Even better, possessing the ability to check one’s email instantaneously is all but essential in today’s world of digital communications. Most cell phones (with data plans) also offer a variety of driving maps and apps that provide up-to-the-minute traffic reports. Besides, most travelers love to take pictures and the resolution of today’s camera phones (the Apple iPhone 5 features an 8 megapixel iSight Camera) is light years more advanced than was once the case. When all of the basics are covered, go ahead and use your phone to talk to friends and family! If you truly miss seeing someone special, and you both own iPhones, feel free to make use of FaceTime or Skype! Essentially, cell phones are the starting point for today’s busy traveler.
Tablets for Travel: Apple, Samsung or Kindle?
Forget bringing just a cell phone and up your game with one of the new tablets on the market guaranteed to make traveling a pleasurable experience. With the Kindle Fire HD by Amazon, one can stream unlimited video, read thousands of books and surf the net at high speeds (speeds may vary depending on one’s location). For those who dislike being away from home, why not bring a piece of home wherever you travel? What is the solution? Choose the Apple iPad Air and FaceTime your loved ones in HD. With the iPad one can play video games and enjoy some of the finest apps in the world. Alternatively, the Galaxy Tab by Samsung is known for its speed, graphics and resolution. I recommend it for travelers that have a hard time going without any sort of video games for long periods of time. Basically, tablets offer a complete technology experience and for writers such as myself, I am never left without a means with which to publish on the go.
Portable Battery Chargers for Cell Phones are a Lifesaver!
One of the biggest headaches faced by travelers is the lack of battery power supplied by most cell phones and tablets. Imagine forgetting to turn on the sleep or airplane mode during flight. One could arrive unable to call or text their friends and family resulting in a challenging time when being picked up at the airport. It is essential to travel with fully charged equipment. If someone reads from their Kindle Fire HD or iPad Air or Galaxy Tab 3 during a long flight their battery power could drop toward zero and a passenger could risk both boredom and frustration. The best way to continue to replenish battery power is with a portable battery charger for cell phones and tablets. Perhaps the most cost effective and highly-rated is the Anker® Astro 3E 10000mAh Dual USB Backup External Battery Pack Portable Power Pack Charger. Never leave home without backup!
The Best Tech Gadget for Travelers
Spare no expense and go for broke! Purchasing a high quality digital SLR (single-lens reflex) camera can make or break a trip. Personally, I enjoy using both Canon and Nikon, though there are a tremendous number of options available for casual photographers. At a minimum, it is advisable that a consumer purchase a 12.2 megapixel camera. If this is a more permanent fixture in your hobbyist repertoire consider buying a 24.2 megapixel camera so that you can maximize photography trips. Some of the hottest new digital cameras are the Nikon D3300 24.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR, and the Canon EOS 70D 20.2 MP Digital SLR camera with dual pixel CMOS. Sony also offers a wide array of superb DSC (Digital Still Camera) options that practically defy belief. It really depends on one’s preference and skill level with photography.
