So, listed below are five travel tech essentials that can upgrade and optimize every single part of your journey. Have a look below:

Most brands come with a cool, smooth case for easy containment and effectively cancels out unwanted noise. Moreover, there are often many sizes available to fit every head and they come in a multitude of colors. Simply detach the speakers from the headband to wash it.  As an added bonus, they can be pulled over the eyes to avoid light as you sleep while traveling.


Foldable Wireless Keyboard

Furthermore, some high tech battery-operated foldable keyboards offer the ability to recharge and can be connected via smartphones, tablets, and laptops. For some, the foldable keyboard along with a tablet offer a better (and lighter!) solution.


Rechargeable Toothbrush

Just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you should neglect your teeth! Rechargeable toothbrushes do a great job thoroughly cleaning your teeth whether at home or abroad. Battery-operated toothbrushes can be kept in a charging travel case or if you’re only gone a few days, one full charge before leaving home should be enough to last the length of your trip. 


Ear Sound Amplifier or Earmuffs

An ear sound amplifier optimizes sound while you travel. It does this is by modifying the volume and tone of the sound coming from your surroundings. Additionally, they fit well behind either ear and can be turned on and off when desired. Furthermore, most come with a screwdriver, wax pick, and a hearing brush to maintain cleanliness.Products recommended are Walker’s Game ear sound amplifier (see above) or MSA Sordin Supreme and Peltor ComTac series.

Drone with a Camera

Flying a drone that has a camera allows you to capture special moments, simply by connecting your smart phone. A good quality drone can capture clear, exceptional pictures for you. Also, having such a fun tech gadget can quite possibly upgrade your entire vacation experience.  (Be sure to check with local rules and guidelines before flying a drone in a new area.)
