Traveling is challenging. Traveling for business is even more challenging as you pack and re-pack trying to find the balance between productivity, personal needs and carry-on limitations. Below we have listed a few items that might turn a stressful assignment on the road into a seamlessly productive and maybe even enjoyable one.

Don’t Lose Charge:

Everyone’s worst nightmare is watching the available battery gauge tick away on a device without a plug-in or spare option. Not to worry there are a few backup alternatives coming to market soon that will solve this problem.
ONE: Jackery Giant Plus is a back-up battery for your smartphone. It has enough power for approximately eight charges and will last close to six months on standby. While big in power, Jackery weighs in at only 10 ounces and measures 3in x 4in. Did we mention it only costs $50 and comes with a built-in LED flashlight too?
TWO: Morphie Space Pack is another back-up battery option. The hardshell case not only provides protection, but one extra battery charge and up to 32GB of additional storage. Depending on extra storage needs, this product runs $150-$180.
THREE: FINsix is a plugin laptop adapter; the difference, it is about a quarter of the size of traditional laptop chargers. They are in production to fit a wide range of brands such as Dell, HP and Apple. So, next time you travel reduce the weight and bulk without giving up your charge.


Get Smart and Functional Accessories:

FOUR: Hex Gallery Carry-On Duffel ($125) is a well-designed bag with room for clothes, books, gear AND a 17-in laptop including cables and other gadgets. The bag is well padded and made of waterproof materials for protection; not to mention, it gives the illusion that you are not carrying a laptop.
