Whether I am traveling for business or pleasure, I always do my best to prepare and stay organized for the trip. Yet despite my ‘best-laid plans,’ many inconveniences still arise that waste time and make travel frustrating. What to do? A few travel accessories I have invested in have eased or eliminated a few of these nuisances.
Here I will focus on three travel accessories that have helped me the most. They’ve provided solutions to major sources of inconvenience while on the road.
1. Portable Power Charger
Date Purchased: June 23, 2019 (paid $65.99)
Having a portable charger gives me peace of mind. I no longer worry that my iPhone or iPad will run out of power, especially during a long flight that doesn’t have power outlets.
Verdict: Love it!
The Anker PowerCore 26800 can charge my iPhone six times or my iPad at least twice. In addition, it provides high-speed charging for up to three devices simultaneously and recharges twice as fast compared to standard portable chargers. This is a result of having two micro-USB inputs.

2. Portable Power Strip
Date Purchased: June 23, 2019 (paid $28.99)
Has your laptop ever run out of battery because the nearest power outlet is too far away? Mine has in the past but not anymore, thanks to this compact power strip.
Verdict: Love it!
The Anker PowerPort Cube has three AC outlets and three USB power ports. It comes with a five-foot extension cord, which is quite enough for me. This is an extremely compact power hub. In addition, it comes equipped with overload protection.
In case you aren’t convinced yet. This cube is less than 2 ½ cubic inches, which is ideal for space-saving in my laptop bag.

3. Accessories and Cable Organizer
Date Purchased: May 9, 2018 (paid $19.99)
Before I bought this cable organizer, cord management was a chronic issue for me.
Verdict: Love it!
The BAGSMART Organizer is made of heavy-duty and water repellent nylon. It works well to organize and protect my small accessories and cables.
This organizer has multiple pockets of various sizes, which provide great flexibility. It is also lightweight, which makes it easy to carry and store in my laptop bag.

Finally, don’t forget that they also make a great gift for the travelers in your life.

That portable power strip looks amazing! I didn’t even know those existed. The portable power chargers are so great as well – my friend had a solar-powered one for when we trekked Mt. Kenya and it was really good.
A portable power charger is an absolute must! I never travel without it. 🙂 I also have a cell phone lens kit that has really come in handy, especially when visiting a National Park
That’s great. Can you post the make and model of the phone lens kit, please.
