Useful travel gadgets

The results of the recent study “Technology and Traveling” have shown that most people consider their phone more necessary on a trip than a change of socks! So, we clearly see that the electronic media have not only gotten into our life for good, but they have also become an indefeasible part of it. Travelen, of course, researched the most useful travel gadgets for you, so that you never stay behind on the times!

No more will you have to worry about your clothes getting wrinkled or about being left with an empty battery. In this post you will find the most useful gadgets that will make your travel-life easier.


Smart Travel Bag

Would you like a suitcase that shows its weight, can be tracked anywhere, charges all devices and locks with your phone? There is no such thing? Who said that? You probably haven’t searched very well. The smart travel bag is one of the most must-have travel gadgets, as it provides lots of options and it literally unties your hands!

Power Bank

One of the most useful travel accessories is the portable charger. It can fully charge up to two devices or half-charge four different ones, through a USB port. It is small, handy and you can always have it with you.

DJI Osmo Mobile 3

This is the best travel gadget if you want to return from your trips without shaky videos and cropped photos. DJI Osmo Mobile 3 provides total stability to the phone or action camera it is attached to and takes professional shots. It can also charge the device, working as a power bank at the same time.

Travel Pillow

A travel pillow is the traveller’s best friend and the favorite accessory of anyone that wants to sleep peacefully during their trip. But you don’t need just a travel pillow to ensure that. You need a pillow with ergonomic design that it’s supportive, it makes you feel comfortable and it’s easy to pack. You need OSTRICH PILLOW GO, by OSTRICHPILLOW!

Current Adaptor

This one is a useful tool, especially if you are traveling to countries that have different electrical sockets than the ones in your country. With a single click, you can turn it into the ideal socket, with the 6 different types it provides.

Type I (Australia/China), Type E/F (Europe), Type L (Italy), Type J (Switzerland), Type G (England, Dubai, Hong Kong), Type B (America).

Noise-cancelling headphones

Wireless headphones are the best friends of everyone that seek some quiet during their trip. They offer amazing sound, isolating almost 100% of all external stimuli, like talking, honking, crying etc. Their huge advantage is that, by touching them, the sound lowers at such a level that it allows you to talk or listen to something that drew your attention. They may cost a bit much, but remember that quiet is not a cheap commodity!

Travel Iron (Steam!)

The new trend demands just a few clothes in the carry-on and off to traveling. The big problem is that the clothes come out of the bag all wrinkly. But, the mini steam iron swoops in to solve this travel problem, too. At a length of just 13cm.(!), it can fit anywhere and makes your clothes fresher than ever.


Buy it

Wireless Travel Router

If you are in the hotel and the wifi signal is weak or scant, make sure you have the wireless router with you. With this device, you convert any wired internet socket to personal wireless wifi router. This way, you can surf the web for hours, without ever losing the signal.

Buy it

Window Solar Charger

If you are in the plane, train, bus or car and are out of battery, then this solar charger is your solution. Stick it on the window and let it transfer the energy of the sun to your device. Before you realize it, it will be charged…Simply and efficiently!

Buy it

Door Alarm

You are sleeping at the hotel, motel, hostel or an apartment (of Airbnb) and you are scared that someone could break in. Do not be afraid, just rig yourself with the door alarm, so you always feel ensured and safe. It starts ringing immediately and it notifies you and everyone else around.

Buy it

USB Flash Disk

The next gadget is something simple that we all keep in our home. The USB Flash Disk is one of the most necessary travel gadgets, as you can transfer all the material of each trip in it. This way, you will not be faced with unpleasant surprises!

Buy it


The bookworms, as well as anyone who loves reading are going to love this gadget. It can store thousands of books, magazines and other texts and read them in amazing definition. Its second advantage is that it can be read equally well during the day, despite the reflections.

    I have the external battery and the noise cancelling headphones at the moment and I don’t think I’d want to travel without them again. That battery has saved me from getting lost many times by charging my phone.
