With technologies being introduced in all facets of life, travel is no exception. With loads of new ways to plan your trip and stay organised, we searched for some of the top affordable travel gadgets to be on the lookout for this year!
Imagine you are visiting one of the spectacular locations in the world and then suddenly your phone battery dies! How will you ever capture some of the most beautiful sites you've ever seen? Emergency battery back-up is a must for all travel buffs. The Aukey battery charger can be your go-to back-up when you're out and about, ensuring that you capture every moment. It is powered by 20,000 mAh Lithium Polymer and provides enough power to charge your iPhone 10 times over. Its slim and portable so you won't feel the extra weight among your travel items.
You'll be taking loads of pictures on your travels and the last thing you want to be worrying about is a lack of camera storage space. Eliminating the annoyance of having to transfer data from one device to another will contribute to stress free travelling. The Mobi EyeFi SD Card comes with built-in wifi so that you can easily transfer photos on to your Android or iOS device without removing the card from the camera! It's compatible with most camera models and offers a convenient cloud service for extra stroage.
Whether you're at the beach or on a boat, keeping your gadgets away from water damage is essential while you travel. Unfortunately, iPhone’s don't have built-in waterproofing for their devices, unlike Android phones. This is where the Overboard case comes in. Overboard's waterproof case means you can do everything from take pictures or watch videos in all types of settings involving water. The case allows your iPhone to be submerged in water of depths of up to 6m so you really won't need to worry about damaging your phone.
Looking to lounge on the beach with your favourite tunes playing in the background? Going for a bike-ride along the Scottish trails and would like some music to set the mood for a relaxing time? Then, the Divoom Airbeat 10 speakers are definitely for you! These Bluetooth speakers have suction cups which allow you to place them just about anywhere comfortably, transforming any spot into powerful amplifiers for your music. They are splash-proof and easily transportable.
