A Travel Gadget is something that adds joy, convenience and zing to travel. It fits into those nooks and crannies of your suitcases, laptop bags or handbags, and like a genie come out and make life easier! These travel ‘assistants’ have become something no holiday or work trip can do without. Let us see how these little devices solve big problems and provide so much ease.


Portable External Battery Charger

A high capacity power bank powered by a 20,000mAh Lithium Polymer battery will provide enough emergency back-up power to charge a smartphone at least 10 times over. There are some nice and sleek devices available that may also have a built in torch. A lot of them come with two USB ports that may be used to charge two devices – at the same time!

Wireless Headphones 

The best travel headphones must be wireless so that your hands are completely free for other travel related tasks. They must have an amazing battery life for at least ten to fifteen hours of continuous wireless streaming.


Some of these headphones have a mode (also called DeepSleep), which puts the headphones into hibernation when away from a device, extending battery life up to six months, automatic music play/pause when headphones are put on and removed and passive Noise Cancelling which blocks irritating external sounds, such as airplane engines, giving you a breather from the external world.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

A holiday without your favorite books is no holiday. The latest version of the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite provides a glare-free experience even under bright sunlight. In the dark, the Paperwhite guides light towards the surface of the display with its built-in front light so you can read comfortably without straining your eyes. 


A monthly charge is all you need to keep your device going. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is the perfect travel gadget for those looking to bury themselves in a book on the beach or by the pool.

Clip-on lens for iPhone

A holiday or business trip always provides opportunities for a photo op. The 4-in-1, Olloclip, clip-on iPhone lens features 10x and 15x macro lenses, wide angle, and fisheye for taking perfect snapshots with an iPhone.


This stylish clip-on gadget, with its wide angle feature offers wider views which enable you to get more in a shot. The 180-degree sweep of the fisheye along with classic barrel distortion makes pictures look different and add great fun to amateur photography. Additionally, with the gadget, you also get lens caps and a carry pouch cum lens cleaner made of micro-fiber.

The Selfie Stick

What’s life without selfies! This word denotes ‘self-taken face photos’ also called ‘selfies’, and became so popular that it topped the Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year rankings.


If you’ve tried to take a selfie (who hasn’t), you would have realized it is quite tricky to get a good shot. The Selfie Stick aims to eradicate this problem, making it easy to use alongside a self-timer app installed on your smartphone.

This telescopic camera/smartphone grip fits most models of cameras and phones and may extend up to a meter to make sure you can get not only you, but your friends, family, dog and a bit of the surroundings in your ‘selfie’.
