Awesome Travel Accessories

in: Technology Travel and Hospitality

The savvy traveler undoubtedly carries a few choice items with them whenever they travel. When we hit the skies, we have a high necessity to bring along items that make us comfy and create an ease in travel. Here are some cool travel gadgets that make your on the go better:

SteriPEN “harnesses the brilliant power of ultraviolet light to make water safe to drink.” Backpacker Magazine, Outdoor Life Magazine and Time Magazine have all sung its praises. If you are traveling overseas and wish to ensure the safety of your drinking water, SteriPEN has been shown to eliminate over 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa in water.

If you juggling several pieces of luggage at one time, here is a handy, inexpensive, why-didn’t-I-think-of-that device called Train Reaction. This nifty device allows you tie several pieces of luggage to each other and create suitcase train to easily pull along with you.

Falling asleep to your favorite iPod lullabies sounds nice, but it will only work if you are a back sleeper. Sleeping on your side with earplugs is definitely not an option. Sleepphones, called “pajamas for your ears,” solve that issue. The earphones are flat and encased in a lightweight, washable headband. Perfect for dealing with noisy hotel neighbors or snoring roomies.

The Walking Bag is a sturdy luggage carrier complete with swivel wheels making for easy navigation in tight spaces. The design includes a fold down chair so you can have seat anywhere, even the most crowded of airports.

When an easy to access keyboard is a must have for your trip, check out the small, portable iTYPE by ION. Compatible with numerous devices including iPad, iPhone and Android, this keyboard will last 80 hours on a single charge and turn virtually any device into a laptop computer.
