When you travel, it’s great to bring a high-quality speaker along with you! That way, if you want to listen to music or watch Netflix, you don’t have to do it through your phone speaker. Our favorite wireless speaker is the UE Wonderboom, a powerful and waterproof Bluetooth speaker. It retails for around $80, but you can often find it on sale for less! It’s a fantastic value and a great travel gadget.

Apple’s excellent tablet speaks for itself when it comes to portability. Whether you’re reading eBooks, watching Netflix or just browsing the web, the iPad is a great piece of technology. While it’s not the most affordable tablet in the world, it is the best, and when paired with a keyboard cover it’s even better. Speaking of keyboard covers…

The Logitech Slim Folio is the most excellent keyboard cover on the market for the iPad. While the iPad is a fine device on its own, it’s made all the better by the presence of a real keyboard. This cover is a great value at $60, as it has great typing action and protects your iPad. Scratches, scrapes and falls are no concern, nor is awkward typing! Great for keeping your pack light so you don’t have to bring a laptop on vacation with you.

Don’t you love when you sit down on the plane and there’s a screaming child in the seat in front of you? The best thing about Bose’s noise canceling headphones is canceling out that very sound. These headphones aren’t exactly cheap, but they’re worth every penny when they drown out the horrible sounds of other peoples’ children.

You’re going to need a way to charge all this high-tech gadgetry, and what better way than with this multi-port wall charger? The coolest thing about this entry from Anker is its power delivery, or PD. It boasts enough energy to charge even tough devices like the Nintendo Switch and high-end laptops! Not to mention, the multiple out-ports allow you to charge multiple devices from the same outlet. Pretty handy!

Along the same lines as the USB-PD charger, the PowerCore Fusion is a multi-port wall charger. It’s also a portable battery! If you’re not concerned with charging a Switch or a laptop, this is a great alternative! It doubles as a pocket backup-battery in case your gadgets need juice when there’s no outlet nearby.
