The Covid 19 pandemic has hit us all pretty hard. Travelling and mingling with people around the globe remains a dream for now. Beaches, public places are out of our question for some time yet.
One of the unexpected advantages we received is the capacity to work from home or remote locations. The world is slowly becoming adapted to this working culture now. A good laptop and a stable internet connection are all we need for many jobs today. The work needs to be completed on time. That’s all that matters. Where you work is not an issue.
Due to these reasons, road trips, and travel may increase. While going on travels whilst working, we need to make sure we are technologically stable and prepared, so our work won’t suffer. The last thing you want is an unstable internet connection while on a video call with your boss. So, just like preparing for a normal journey, making sure you are ready technologically is also important. Let us go through a few gadgets we need to keep with us while preparing for such a journey.
A Pervasive Mobile Phone
One of the most important gadgets in our life. Now the mobile phone is so important to us that we permanently have it with us. Having a good mobile phone covers many areas. We can access social media, check and send emails, check the time, date, and day, create and organize lists, enjoy music, call anyone, and much more. Make sure you have the necessary software on your phone so it can support you in almost all situations.
Google apps like chrome and maps, payment apps like G-Pay and PayPal, are a few examples of necessary go-to applications.
A high-capacity power bank is always a vital component for our mobile phone while travelling. Finding a power source to charge your gadgets may not always be an option. So, a power bank that can charge your gadgets twice over is a necessity.
Nowadays, in the market, power banks with high capacity and small sizes are available. Most of them contain C-type ports and provide a quick charge option. The Romoss 18W 30000 MAH power bank is one such option pricing at 44 AUD. If you do a thorough search, better options may be found.
Phone car mount
As mentioned before, the mobile phone is a very important gadget in our lives, while travelling or driving, it can be useful as a map, route finder, music, talking on the phone in case of emergencies, etc. For this purpose, it is better to attach the phone somewhere in the car with the help of a phone mount. The phone mounts available today have 360-degree rotation capability, so you can adjust the phone in whichever direction you want.
Wi-Fi Enabled Laptops
A laptop is a very important device for our travels if you are planning to complete your work too. Even though a few jobs can be done using a tablet or a mobile phone, there are plenty of tasks that require a laptop with a keyboard and a large screen. Just having a laptop is not enough today. We need a laptop which can connect to Wi-Fi without any trouble, as most of our work needs access to the internet.
One of the necessities while carrying a laptop is its cover. You don’t want the laptop to get scratched or broken on your travels. So always have a padded cover to protect the laptop, especially the corners and sides.
Portable Wi-Fi for your Laptop and mobile (if needed)
In the case of a mobile phone, a good internet connection will always be available. But for working using a laptop, a hotspot from your mobile may not always work. And also, on-road, there is no way we can have a Wi-Fi connection unless you carry one. So, buy a good portable Wi-Fi to ease your tension of not having a stable internet connection for your laptop.
The Urozetta Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot is one of the best pocket Wi-Fi devices available today to purchase. It is sim-free with a battery backup of 12 hours and also can connect 10 devices together.
USB Flash Drives
Nowadays, storage is plentiful on most devices like phones and laptops. So, we usually don’t think about going old school and carrying a USB flash drive. But, having one will help you a lot in case you want to take or transfer some data while travelling. We wouldn’t recommend connecting your laptop or mobile phone to any outside devices for the purpose of data transfer. So always carry a USB drive with a good storage capacity. SanDisk sells good-quality pen drives at affordable prices.
There are many more tiny gadgets that will help you on the road but the above-mentioned comes first. Enjoy your travels and enjoy your life. Keep Safe.
