Your adventure is planned; now you have access to that very exciting travel accessory aisle.
The latest travel gadgets are designed to enhance your travel experience so you can get the most from your adventure. However, with so many fad gadgets out there, sometimes it’s hard to keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest technologies.
We simplify the purchasing process by bringing you the best products to invest in…
LED head torch/hand-held torch
For camping and trekking adventures, an LED head torch is the most battery efficient light. It helps you navigate the campsite and repack for the next day. For other travel destinations take an LED hand-held torch for dimly lit streets and alleyways.
Waterproof, shockproof camera
Chances are you will drop your camera as you trek to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro or the while navigating the bustling streets of Phnom Penh. To make sure you don’t miss out on magic happy snaps, take a waterproof, shockproof camera such as the Panasonic Lumix.
You can also invest in heavy-duty iPhone cases to make sure your camera phone lasts the distance and creates those perfect Instagram travel shots!
Battery pack/solar powered battery pack
When we travel often our phones are our only means to navigate, translate and communicate. When your phone is on 20% battery and you know you have to fit in more hours of site-seeing and exploration, panic ensues. Why not take a battery pack to recharge your phone during the day! You can find packs such as the Mophie battery pack, or a solar powered pack to get it (and you) back to 100%!
Packing cells and dry-bag liners
Travel packing requires organisation. Packing cells are designed to fit nicely into a suitcase or trekking pack. You can segment your gear, such as your underwear in one and your toiletries in another. You can find these cells in any adventure store or IKEA.
A dry-bag liner is perfect for protecting your clothes from moisture. You can use these bags to ensure that rain doesn’t seep in. They are also brilliant for keeping your dirty laundry separate from your clean clothes.
Biodegradable laundry wash and portable clothesline
Every adventurer understands that you can’t bring your whole wardrobe along in your pack (much to our dismay). If you have access to clean water, why not take advantage of biodegradable laundry wash and an easy-to-pack clothesline. You can wash in the morning and adventure in the day, if you are returning to that site. Or at night you can get your washing sorted and prepared for the next day.
Coffee whenever and wherever (this is not a fun gadget; it’s an essential gadget)
Experienced travellers know that good coffee can be hard to come by. But fear not because Grower’s Cup has a fair trade solution for when those caffeine-craving moments arise on your adventure. Simply open the satchel, fill with boiling water and pour into a nearby mug! Heaven.
The selfie stick or GoPole
Selfie sticks are the new tripod (whether we like it or not). Photos have less arm and more scenery, people fit within the camera’s parameters and giggles are shared with mutual stick owners. Just think how fondly you will look back on your epic images in years to come. For our more ambitious photographers, the GoPole will help you capture those glorious images and videos!
