The major hassle of traveling is packing. Especially now that cell phones and cameras are essential for travelers. With these gadgets are numerous wires, cords, and chargers to bring. 

Ever experienced reaching your destination and having to unpack tangled wires? How about misplacing cords? Different sockets for different countries? Bulky extension cords?

No worries! Being a traveler myself, I already know the essentials in what to bring and where to buy them!

Multi-Port Docking Station

When traveling, having a single charging station for all your devices is important. A 6 port USB docking station allows you to have all your electronic devices in one place. This docking station minimizes the risk of misplacing your cell phones and cameras. You can glance or have your eyes at all times at all of your electronic gadgets, be it at the hotel lobby or anywhere.

The two best brands for electronic device support are Anker and Ravstation. Both of them are well-known to be compatible with leading electronic brands like Apple. Android, GoPro, and many more.

Battery Banks

When purchasing battery banks, make sure that the MAh is enough to charge your cell phone 3 to 4 times. For example, a typical iPhone has 3000MAh of battery life, and you can purchase a battery bank that is 10000MAh or more. Purchasing a battery bank with a smaller MAh than your daily driver is a waste of money.

Built-in cables is a must for battery banks. Either type-C for android or lightning cables for iPhone, it depends on what cell phone you use. Having built-in cables in your battery banks minimizes the risk of misplacing any cables, especially iPhone cables, which are very pricey to replace. It is also advisable to have a USB charging option for your battery banks. This gives you the flexibility to charge any USB-driven electronic device.

Rechargeable Double A Batteries

Having rechargeable batteries is a must when traveling. You can't predict the battery life of some electronic devices. It is better to be safe than sorry. 

The rechargeable double-A battery comes with a 1250 MAh battery life. It is perfect when it comes to emergencies during traveling. This rechargeable double-A battery has a USB drive in it, making it compatible to charge any device with a USB port. 

The use of rechargeable double A batteries comes to use in charging rechargeable fans. Fans are very handy, especially in places that are very hot and humid. Fans are also useful in treks and riding public transportation in some places.

Anker Vs. RavStation

The two brands offer the same in terms of being the leading brand for electronic devices. There is no wrong answer in choosing between Anker and RavStation. Both offer safe charging for your electronic gadgets. Choosing between the two of them all boils down to preference in whatever brand you had first.


Since traveling is much easier today, more and more issues arise. But the most common issue when it comes to traveling is packing the essentials for your trip. Countless wires, cords, adaptors, and chargers are with the different electronic gadgets you bring for your trip. Hassle right? Worry no more, with the rise in technology, more and more devices are getting smaller and compact. Making it easier to pack and bring when traveling.
