A laptop is an essential travel item these days, and most carry on bags contain a laptop because it allows us to stay connected when traveling and plugged in beyond just our mobile phones.
But traveling just with your laptop and power cord isn’t enough. You need to toss a few more items in your bag if you want to get the most out of your laptop computer when traveling.
From working in the airport lounges to getting work done in the hotel, here are a few accessories that you need to make sure you bring with you on your next trip.
Have you ever tried to find an outlet at the airport when it’s busy or during holiday travel? It’s next to impossible. You can waste time walking up and down the terminal trying to find an empty outlet, or you can just pack a power block that will give you a charge anytime you need it.
You never want to run out of power — from FaceTime sessions with your family to looking up plumbing products to reading todays horse racing tips — you want to always have juice to do what you want online.
The new generation of these devices have a lot of charge capacity and they are also a lot lighter and slimmer than they were in the past, making traveling with several of them easy. Never run low on battery power again.
External Hard Drive
If you work on the road then you probably have a lot of files to access. While the cloud is great, what happens if you cannot connect to the internet?
It’s a good idea to keep the files you will be working on saved onto an external hard drive. You can easily add and delete files for each trip, and having them on this device ensures you can get int them even with no internet.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
Do you plan on working in some environments that are a little noisy? If so, then you will want to make sure that you have some noise cancelling headphones. They allow you to work in peace no matter what is going on around you.
They could be doing demo next to you and you wouldn’t blink an eye with a quality set on your ears.
Sometimes listening to music while you take a break from work and supplementing with some CBD products is the key to relaxing and recharging.
Do yourself a favor and get the over the ear ones for the best quality.
Mobile Phone with HotSpot
Sometimes public WiFi is slow, with so many people connected to it, and also it can be a security issue. It’s never a good idea to access personal information while connected to a public WiFi network.
For this reason it’s a good idea to make sure your mobile phone plan allows you to create a hotspot via your phone and connect to its internet on your laptop.
This is very convenient, especially if public networks aren’t available. This way you know you can always connect when you have to.
