Updated January 19th, 2021. Original: November 3rd , 2019, Posted by travelwith2ofus
Whether you're a techie, geek or frequent traveler or a techie geek traveler, then it makes perfect sense to get a portable charger for your devices including your phone or tablet.
Imagine you're in an exotic location like the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador or in the Atacama Desert in Chile or maybe you're backpacking through European destinations like Prague, Slovakia or Berlin and your device, whether it's your phone or tablet goes dead. A portable charger will definitely come to your rescue in that situation.
I like to be prepared. Yes, of course you can't fully depend on your devices; I still get a paper map just in case, but I like the ease and convenience that having a mobile map or the ability to use the GPS or other travel planning apps on my phone and Ipad. Don't you?
There are many other devices that can make traveling much easier and convenient. I like to think about myself as a self-confessed tech-geek who love gadgets and is absolutely passionate about traveling. I have a lot of devices including phone, tablet, GoPro and other cameras, and I am always looking for new ones that will help make traveling and exploring more comfortable and efficient.
There are a lot of gadgets that can help make traveling much, much, more fun, especially when you're in a spot of bother, like when we were in Guadeloupe in 2016. Here are a few of them that may make your trip awesome.
