With all the electronics we travel with, what’s the biggest headache? Keeping them charged, of course. Here’s how can you make sure you have the right tools.
If you have access to a power outlet, maximize it. A company called Griffin makes a Dual Universal Charger. One plug and you can charge two devices at once with USB cables.
The best part is it always charges at the same speed, so even if you have two devices hooked up, it won’t slow down.
Don’t have a power outlet nearby? There’s a cool little device called a Magicstick from Powerocks that’s about the size of a lipstick. It holds a charge in a lithium ion battery to charge your smartphone or other device.
Of course, you have to remember to keep IT charged.
And then there’s the kind of charger that works entirely off of solar power. The sCharger-5 doesn’t need to be plugged in—it gets all its power from the sun.
What sets this one apart is that it charges your devices quickly and it’s durable enough to handle even camping and hiking trips.
