Best Travel Gadgets

Traveling is a great interest and a lot of people need various tools that will make their adventure easier and more fun. Also, these gadgets are great for those who spend a long time having to travel from a point to another for work or other activities.

Amazon Kindle – if there’s something that will make traveling easier and those hours of waiting more pleasant, it’s definitely an eBook reader. Kindle is probably one of the most famous and also one of the best in terms of reading. This eBook is so appreciated because it will make reading so much easier and it will not hurt your eyes. Also, the battery will last for a very long time and you can also store a great amount of ebooks on it, which is great if you get bored easily or you finish your book while still on the road so it’s definitely better than carrying a lot of books.

iPad – if you don’t like reading and prefer surfing on the internet, chatting with people or seeing a movie this is the comfortable way to do it. Of course, you can carry around a laptop but those can get pretty heavy and you don’t want extra baggage while traveling.

Portable Solar Battery Charger – this is quite useful if you plan on traveling in some places where there might be problems with electricity. It will cost you about 20-40 dollars and it’s a great investment, especially for people who go camping but also prefer to have their other gadgets around.

Portable GPS System – this is actually great if you plan on travelling in unknown places and you need to find your way around. Actually, if there’s something from this list you should buy as a traveler or adventurer, this should be the top priority. You can also get a phone that has a GPS incorporated if you want to make things easier and have a device with all that you need, but GPS is definitely useful.

Obviously these are just a few of the things you can buy as an aspirant traveler, there are also cute gadgets like a travelling heat pillow that can be charged through USB port or even a water bottle that uses UV to purify water.

A Small But Cool Gift

The tablet has become very popular and not just the famous iPad but also many other models that combine the performance of a computer with the practicality of a medium sized portable screen. There are a bunch of applications for tablets and you can pretty much do anything you want with one from watching a movie to sending emails. Games are also a big part of applications for tablets but as most true gamers know, playing on a touch screen is not always as fun as having analog controllers; there is a certain precision and control you can only get from analog sticks and this can be seen on the latest portable consoles.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the same experience on your tablet, there is a pretty cool gadget which you can simply attach to the touch screen and it will change the way you play games on it. The JOYSTICK-IT Tablet Arcade Stick is a great way to turn your tablet into a portable console with analog sticks. These are small and very easy to use and the user can set them anywhere on the screen without having to connect it by cable or charge it. The thing to know is that not all available games can be controlled with this little gadget and only the ones that have an on-screen control pad are actually compatible. This means that PacMan will be more fun than ever when playing it on your tablet. Some games even allow you to put more than one stick so buying a couple might be a great idea.

The removable arcade stick makes for an amazing gift, especially if you give it to someone who loves playing videogames; just make sure that they already have a compatible tablet. It is one of those gifts that despite being small and simple, it can be lots of fun and it is also very affordable. Smaller ones are also available for a compatible phone so combining the two gifts would be very cool. These little controllers are becoming very popular and gamers all around the world seem to want one.
