Gear Guide - Travel Tech Gadgets

Melissa and I just got back from our good friends Nick and Caitlin’s engagement party in San Francisco. Even though we were only out there for two nights, there was still a few essential items I brought to make sure we were entertained and our batteries stayed full.

Mophie Air for iPhone 5
With really well designed products, both aesthetically and functionally, Mophie is a company that gets it. The Air is essentially a backup battery in the form of a case. It actually looks great and keeps the phone reasonably slim for the amount of power it’s got. It’s about double the thickness of an iPhone 5. Well worth it if you ask me. When you’re running around airports and strange cities all day, you’re either gunna be looking things up on your phone because you need info or entertainment. The best piece of advice I plucked from their website is that you should start using the Air when your phone’s battery is around 20%  and turn the Air off at 80%. After that, it takes way too much juice to get to 100%. Mophie makes 2 other battery cases for the iPhone 5. Personally, I prefer the Air over the Helium for two reasons - I needed more juice and I didn’t like the cutouts for the buttons on the Helium. Juice Pack Plus isn’t necessary for me either, but you may like the 120% extra battery. www.mophie.com $100
 
iPad Mini
The only thing cooler than the iPad is the iPad Mini. It takes up less space in your bag, it’s easier to hold, and it’s a little less boisterous on a plane (an iPad is everyone’s to look at… an iPad Mini is yours). This gadget is probably the best thing to happen to planes since wings. Movies, books, magazines, games… Boredom is the problem and the iPad Mini is the solution. You can never really get bored on a plane if you’ve got one. www.apple.com $330

Mophie Juice Pack Duo
You’ve beat all the new Angry Birds levels, you’ve read Fortune, and somewhere around your 12th episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, your iPad battery might start to dip in the danger zone. Don’t panic- just plug it into the Juice Pack Duo and get a new lease on life. It’s worth every penny to save yourself from talking to your single serving friend. It can even charge two iPhone 5s. www.mophie.com $100

Olloclip
As a photographer, I love to take pictures everywhere I go. What I don’t love is lugging around my dSLR all the time. The Olloclip is a great tool to have with you if you’re into taking pictures with your iPhone. Sometimes you just need the iPhone lens to be a little bit wider so you can get more in the frame, and the Olloclip will about double the iPhone frame. All this while using quality machined materials and real glass optics. It even has a macro lens and fisheye lens. Do not even entertaiin the thought of buying another iPhone lens. ww.olloclip.com $70

Monster Outlets To Go
When you get to the hotel, you’re gunna wanna plug everything in. Unfortunately, getting to the outlets in most rooms is often more awkward than your first kiss. But have no fear, Outlets To Go is gunna be there to save the day. Plug this into one outlet and you’ve got 4 outlets in the same spot. One of the cool things about this is that all of your stuff is in one place, making it slightly harder to leave things behind. www.amazon.com $15

I would highly recommend all of these gadgets for any trip, long or short. Traveling will definitely be way better with them!

Now you just move them around on the wall as you see fit. I used a laser level and pure hope to get this looking nice and neat. Now get all that art off the floor and onto those naked walls!
