I love going on holiday, and I bet you do too! But in our excitement (and sometimes haste) to pack and get ready for going away on holiday abroad, we often forget to pack some essential and useful items either for our journey on the plane, or for the holiday itself.
Some of these items are usually gadgets of some description, such as some of these 10 awesome gadget examples:
The Apple iPad is a popular tablet computer, thanks to its lightweight and sleek design, and with an App Store boasting more than 700,000 apps for you to download and enjoy.
It’s also a great way to catch up on emails, browse the web, and make and receive calls online using FaceTime or some other VoIP-based software.
Veho M4 Bluetooth Speaker
When you’re sat at the beach or beside the pool at your holiday resort, the last thing you want to do is listen to some tunes from the tinny speaker on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet.
The Veho M4 Bluetooth speaker solves this problem, and the other great thing about it is that you can easily store it in your suitcase as it doesn’t take up much room!
Apple AirPort Express
It’s really annoying when you go somewhere without Wi-Fi Internet access, and all that is supplied in your hotel room is an Ethernet cable. The Apple AirPort Express lets you create your own secure Wi-Fi network from your hotel room’s Ethernet port, and it’s quick and easy to setup.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40
Smartphone cameras are OK, but if you want a camera that takes awesome photographs and doesn’t cost a fortune to buy, then you should consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40! It offers a 20x optical zoom and has an 18.1 megapixel resolution.
Crosskase Solar 15 Backpack
Going backpacking abroad? If so, make sure you take the Crosskase Solar 15 backpack with you. Why? Well apart from being really comfortable to carry around, it has a solar panel on the back for charging devices like mobile phones and MP3 players with!
The Only One Travel Adapter with USB Port
There aren’t many countries around the world that use the same electric sockets as we do here in the UK (Ireland, Hong Kong and Singapore spring to mind), so to charge your gadgets abroad using the right voltage, you need to pack The Only One travel adapter with USB port in your suitcase! It can be used in over 150 countries, and even lets you charge USB gadgets too.
PURE Evoke Flow DAB Internet Radio
Sometimes when you are abroad and you want to listen to your favourite radio programmes, it can be a bit difficult to do so without a computer, but the PURE Evoke Flow DAB Internet Radio solves this problem for you. Apart from being a DAB radio player, it also lets you listen to Internet radio stations too!
TomTom Go LIVE Car Navigation
When you hire a car abroad, using a sat-nav device can be a godsend, especially in an area that you are unfamiliar with. The TomTom Go LIVE Car Navigation sat-nav device makes getting to your destination a cinch thanks to the widescreen high-definition display and clear instructions.
SteriPEN Ultra UV Water Purifier
Some places around the world can offer water of questionable quality.
