Traveling can be stressful enough as it is — and the last thing you want is your luggage to be the factor that makes your plans go awry. While this Genius Pack Supercharged Carry On won’t necessarily prevent missed flights or long layovers, it can certainly help you get smoothly from point A to point B. Plus, it includes two external USB ports so you can keep your iPhone or iPad charged on the go.
Visiting foreign countries can mean packing a bunch of different chargers along with everything else. But this adapter can charge multiple devices from any of six outlet types, so you can keep all your devices running while you’re abroad.
Traveling with your laptop can be nerve-wracking. For many of us, our computers are our livelihoods, so the very idea of them becoming lost or damaged is downright unacceptable. That makes protecting your MacBook with a quality case a no-brainer.
We take our iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and MacBooks everywhere with us, which means there are that many more chances for a dead battery (and a lot fewer available outlets). Whether at home, in a packed car, on a plane or in another country, these Apple chargers will make sure you’ve got access to power when you need it.
I have a bit of an embarrassing problem: Part of my device-charging setup in my bedroom includes a power strip that sits on the floor next to my bed. It isn’t the worst thing ever, but it’s ugly, and sometimes I trip over it. But I may have found a solution in the 3-port iClever BoostCube. It will save my pride, and some space in my bag when I travel, and that’s just good news all around.
Plus, the ports glow an eerie blue when it’s plugged in, and that’s really cool-looking.
When I travel with my Mac, there are a few accessories I refuse to leave home without. Depending on how and where I’m traveling to, what I decide to pack may change, except for a few items. From making sure I’m never without the right kind of outlet adapters, to drowning out plane noise, these are the travel accessories for Mac I could never live without.
There’s unquestionable power in an object that does one thing and does it well. Consider the lowly travel mug — it’s a common commodity among the world’s coffee-swilling commuters, and yet the standard design lets us down repeatedly.
How does it fail us? It doesn’t keep our coffee hot for long. And, worse, it’s got a tendency to drip, spill and even spurt lukewarm java onto our clothes and car interiors. Many of my shirts bear depressing coffee stains, the marks of a road warrior using an inferior travel mug.
Moshi’s Xync packs a Lightning-to-USB charging cable into a handy, dangly carabiner-clip package, and adds a secret compartment on the side. But is it better than just carrying a regular Lightning cable in your pocket/bag? The short answer? Hmm…
