Cool Gadgets for Travelers
Whether you’re heading to the jungle or a beach, this travel gear will come in very handy.
1 – Sonic Toothbrush
In terms of travel beauty essentials, we highly recommend the new FOREO ISSA 2 sonic toothbrush. Created by the high-end Swedish wellbeing brand FOREO, it has won over 80 beauty and design awards. FOREO don’t just make toothbrushes, they also designed the IRIS eye massager and LUNA facial brushes which we regularly use.
This revolutionary device is quite different to other toothbrushes that we have tried. The silicone brush is much more hygienic than a standard toothbrush. Our teeth feel really clean thanks to the PBT polymer bristles. You can also buy a 100% silicone brush head for sensitive gums. Unlike electric brushes, there are no rotations that can lead to receding gums and abrasion. The best feature though is that one charge lasts up to 365 days, so it’s very handy for travelling.
We find ISSA 2 very simple to use thanks to the built-in timer that and we like the vibrant colour options including Mint, Cool Black, Colbalt Blue and Pearl Pink. After using this toothbrush, we’ve noticed that our teeth seem much brighter and they feel fresher too.
This electric toothbrush really makes your travels easy. ISSA 2 is stocked in over 5,000 stores worldwide and many online retailers. ISSA 2 by FOREO comes with a 2 year warranty and a 10 year quality guarantee.
2 – Portable Charger
During your trip, a power bank will come in very handy. The Mophie Powerstation Plus XL is ideal, thanks to its light weight and built-in charging cable. It also includes a standard USB-A port. There are four indicator lights enabling you to see how much the power bank has recharged.
3 –Universal Travel Adapter
When buying useful travel gear, a universal travel power adapter is one of the most essential items. This one by CleverTrips has AU, EU, UK and US plugs that work in over 150 countries.
This travel adapter can be used for 4 USB and Type-C simultaneously, allowing you to share USB ports with your travelling companions. There’s a spare fuse built in and the adapter comes with a 2 ft. charging cable for Apple and Android, as well as a zipper nylon travel bag.
4 – Foldable Filter Water Bottle
On your travels around the world, fresh drinking water is a basic necessity yet it can sometimes be hard to come by. This collapsible water bottle by WaterWell has a clever filter system that removes 99.9% of waterborne pathogens. An innovative ultrafiltration membrane with granular activated carbon filters out parasites and bacterial. It also removes unpleasant odours or taste from water.
The water bottle is BPA free and can filter up to 1000 litres of water. There’s a handy spare squeeze bag that you can use for cooking, a soft protective cover and a clip on carabiner as well as a drinking nozzle and filter straw. Once the filter needs changing, water automatically stops flowing and replacement filters can be purchased in advance.
5 – Digital Luggage Scales
For travelling light or making sure that you’re within your baggage allowance, digital scales are a must. We like the Etekcity digital luggage scales, which have many useful features.
There’s a thermometer temperature sensor in C° and F° as well as a backlight and an auto-off function to help save battery life. With these scales, you can switch between kilos and pounds and they weigh up to 50 kg (100 pounds).
6 – Anti Jet Lag Light Therapy Glasses
If you suffer from jet lag, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a new solution in the form of light therapy glasses. AYO is a groundbreaking device that helps travellers to recover from jet lag and to get a better night’s sleep.
AYO light therapy glasses emit a blue light that is controlled by a mobile app and fully customizable for each user. You simply add your flight itinerary and AYO will program the device based on your lifestyle and sleep pattern. If you forget to put the glasses on or are asleep, AYO will reprogram to work when you are awake.
These therapy glasses have won many awards including the Best Electronics’ device at the consumer-voted Travel Retail Awards. Over 10,000 people worldwide have purchased this anti jet lag solution.
7 – Travel Headphones
It can be hard to get a good night’s sleep when travelling, but these innovative sleep headphones make it a lot easier. AcousticSheep SleepPhones have an inbuilt fabric headband made from polyester and spandex. They’re available in 3 sizes – extra small, medium and extra large as well as many colourways.
The headband can be pulled over your eyes to reduce the light and the headphone speakers are detachable for easy washing. There’s a cable and bluetooth version and the flat 4mm speakers don’t get in your way. Some people who have a partner that snores even use these headphones when they’re not travelling,
Say goodbye to bulky headphones with these carry on essentials!
