Electrical Gear

Electrical Gear

I honestly never used to travel with any technology, but now (it may be something to do with this blogging game!) it seems I’m spending an increasing amount of money on it all – and I’m kind of enjoying it!

From cameras to hard drives, laptops to charging solutions, here’s my guide to the best electrical travel gear …

Anti Theft Backpack

New anti-theft technology has literally changed my life when it comes to not stressing about valuables whilst on the road. Check out my review of the incredible Bobby Anti Theft Backpack, which I now wouldn’t leave home without.

GoPro Hero5

Perfect for adventure travellers, safaris, underwater action, road trips  … or just about anything, you can’t beat GoPro!

GorillaPod Mini Tripod

With the ability to function alongside any camera – be it your phone, mirrorless or GoPro – this mini tripod will help you capture some great travel shots while still being lightweight, easy to use and very durable.

iPhone 7

I’m a big apple fan, what can I say! Love my 128gGB iPhone 7, which has an impressive camera, tons of room for apps and great social media capabilities.

Portable Power Pack

Whatever electrical devices you’re taking travelling, you cannot forget a portable power bank too.

Having one of these bad boys has literally been a game changer for me and I love the way it allows my phone to just sit in my bag happily charging away hour after hour.

Personally, I recommend the EC Technology 22400mAh Power Bank, which although a little heavier at 400g, has a super powerful battery and can charge 3 devices super fast.

When I’m travelling and on the go, it’s a so good to know my phone battery is going to last and not cut out on me when I’m just about to post that Instagram shot.

Macbook Air

I love my Macbook Air, it’s so light and does everything I need to keep my life (and business) on the go no matter where in the world I am.

Memory Card

I recommend taking a 32GB and 64GB memory card away with you when you travel. If you’re going to be snapping a lot of high res shots you’ll need this much space, trust me!

Mirrorless Camera

Forget heavy DSLR’s, all the cool travel kids are now switching to mirrorless technology instead. Much lighter and smaller, but with the same quality of photo, it’s easy to see why. I love my Sony A6000 mirrorless camera and can highly recommend it if you’re a beginner like me.

SSD Portable Hard Drive

They might cost a little more than a regular hard drive, but without any moving parts, an SSD hard drive is far less likely to break from the bump and jolts of travel life. If you want to keep your photos, or any other important data, safely backed up, this is defintiely the way to go.

World Power Adapter

Never risk not being able to charge your camera, phone or laptop wherever you are. Skross are a great brand of world travel adapter that include USB chargers for portable products in their models too.
