Air travel has become an inevitable part of our lives. While some travel occasionally, some have become frequent flyers. With many gadgets becoming daily drivers, it is only certain that we would be required to carry along a set of personal gadgets to make our lives easy.
Be it managing work or simply staying entertained, today there is a wide variety of gadgets that can come in handy when flying. If you are planning to invest in some gadgets that will make your travel effortless, look no further. Here’s a list of seven gadgets that are not only economical but can greatly enhance your experience while in transit.
Frequent flyers, especially those taking long flights to international destinations, would agree that the constant hum of the engines is the last thing they want to hear. Headphones like the Sony WH-1000XM5, Bose QuietComfort 45, AirPods Max, etc., are designed to tackle this situation. If these seem slightly expensive, there are plenty of headphones with active noise cancellation priced under Rs 5,000.
A Bluetooth transmitter allows you to connect your wireless headphones to the in-flight entertainment system. You can find a Bluetooth transmitter with a 3.5mm headphone jack on Amazon for less than Rs 1,000. Some of the most popular Bluetooth transmitters include Musesonic Bluetooth Audio Receiver, Pagaria 2, Sounce Bluetooth Receiver, etc. Users can pick any of these based on their requirements.
If you always ensure your phone is fully charged before leaving home, carrying a power bank on your next flight is a must to tackle battery anxiety. Instead of an ordinary power bank, go for fast-charging power banks such as the Mi 50W power bank, Ambrane 100W power bank, or the Stuffcool Super 85W power bank. All these products can fast charge phones and can even be used to charge select laptops that support USB-PD standards.
When travelling to a different country, it’s essential to carry an international travel adapter. Most countries have their own power adapter standards, so a regular charger may not work there. The OREI worldwide universal travel adapter, Hackensack travel universal plug, and the rts dual universal adapters are some of the most popular offerings, which also happen to include multiple USB ports for charging phones and other gadgets.
Instead of carrying multiple USB cables to charge your devices, you can simply carry a single cable with multiple ports. Models like the Ambrane Unbreakable 3-in-1 fast-charging braided multipurpose cable, Wecool Nylon 3-in-1 charging cable, and Kratos Nylon braided cable offer a lightning port, USB type-C port, and even a micro USB port on a single cable.
By using a tracking device, you can keep track of your check-in luggage at all times. While iPhone users can consider the AirTag, Android smartphone users can go for options like the Tile Tracker or the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag, which offers extended battery life and offers remote tracking using an app.
To avoid paying hefty fees for excess luggage, invest in a portable weighing machine that provides instant updates on the weight of your bags. The Finalize Electronic portable weighing machine, GoTrippin metal luggage weigh scale, and Destinio metal luggage weighing scale are some of the most popular options available across e-commerce platforms.
