5 Must Have Gadgets When Traveling For Work

Traveling for work can be a great way to see different parts of the world (or even your own country) if you’re lucky enough to get to hit the road and get paid for it. To make the most of the opportunity, you need to be organized and make sure you’re taking everything you need. Assuming you’ve already got your laptop and charger all sorted, here are 5 must have gadgets when traveling for work…

  1. Universal Travel Adaptor

These things are so handy we even got a bunch made up for the Pacsafe staff when they’re on the road. If you’re heading to different countries (or even continents) it’s a great idea to take an travel adaptor that lets you plug your laptop and other gadgets into a local socket.This one on Amazon is well-priced and will have you powered up in pretty much any country you’re likely to go visit.    

  1. Portable Phone/Laptop Charger

We all know the anxiety that comes with living on 1% battery, especially when needing to make an important work call or send that urgent pitch email. Pick upone of the many portable battery packs on the market so you can top up while on the move without missing a beat.

  1. Wireless Hotspot

Sending and receiving urgent emails, downloading presentation files, or uploading photos of your latest adventure – they all need reliable internet. Sometimes it’s hard to come across, depending on where you are in the world. There are a few options out there, including theTeppy which works on 4G networks in over 100 countries around the world. Connect and feel the peace of mind it brings.

  1. Wireless Overhead Projector Kit

No more messing around with cables and adapters when looking to hook up your presentation. We’re in the 21st century now people. Get yourself a wireless overhead projector kit, that should be able to turn most projectors into a cable-free experience. As a bonus, download one of the manylaptop controller apps that let you use your phone to change slides, instead of toggling the arrows on your laptop.

  1. A Kindle (or similar)

This one is for the people who like to slide in a little leisure on their work trips. Of course, you could use it to download the latest business title, by why not go on a scifi adventure and enjoy some downtime reading with your head in the stars. Much better than carting a bunch of books around with you.
