With all the recent advances in technology and devices becoming more compact, it is now easier than ever to take the gadgets you need with you on your next adventure. The ability to stay connected, navigate foreign destinations and capture memories along the way are just some benefits of using technology while traveling. Here are a few of FlightHub’s favourite tech gadgets to help make your next journey that much more enjoyable.
Noise Canceling Headphones
Whether you’re listening to music on the plane or trying to get work done at the airport, noise-cancelling headphones are the best way to minimize background sounds. Without getting too technical, these headphones work by using a technology called Active Noise Cancellation. A microphone picks up surrounding noise and creates a sound wave that is the direct opposite. This inverse sound wave is then played through the headphones, cancelling the ambient noise.
While there are many different brands and models to choose from, look for headphones with a comfortable fit and good sound quality for better long-term use. If you frequently take phone calls on the go, consider a headset with a built-in microphone.
With all of the features our devices have to offer it can be easy to drain your battery while travelling. Portable battery packs have changed how we power our devices by providing the ability to charge remotely. No longer do you need to search for the nearest outlet and remain in that spot until fully charged. Many portable chargers even have multiple ports, allowing you to charge multiple devices simultaneously. Some even have solar panels, you can charge using the power of the sun!
Universal Power Adapter
Before travelling to a new country, an important detail to research is the type of outlet used at your destination. Different countries use different outlets and an adaptor may be necessary to plug in any electronics. A universal power adapter will cover all of your bases to make sure you have the correct one. Similar to portable chargers, most adaptors have multiple charging ports for USB and AC plugs, which can come in handy if you are travelling with many devices.
When discussing online privacy and travel, many think of passwords or internet connection security. However, there is an additional step you can take to make sure your personal information remains private – privacy screens. By blocking others from viewing your laptop or tablet screen from certain angles, these screens can be applied for peace of mind when using your electronics in public.
Smartphone Camera Lens
These days, everyone is trying to capture that perfect shot. Smartphone cameras are continuously improving in quality and make it easy to have a camera available at all times. A smartphone camera lens is a great way to take your photography to the next level. These lenses simply attach to your cell phone camera and can offer a variety of views, such as wide-angle, fish-eye, or macro. They’re a great way to capture unique and exciting photos to share with friends and family while you’re travelling.
These are just a few examples of gadgets to consider bringing on your next trip. Even if you are not a tech-savvy traveller, learning their use and incorporating them into your packing list can improve your travel experience!
