The Gear: Power

As we gear up for this years travels, I thought I'd share a few items I just won't leave at home.

The Belkin Mini Surge Protector

  • Most importantly: You can charge two iPhones, your camera, your iPad and a laptop all at once.
  • It saves you from bringing two iPhone/iPad power adapters.
  • It protects from the not-so-constant voltage running through those powerlines in Cambodia.
  • Let's see, Gate D21 . . . OK!, GO!, RUN, THERE'S AN OUTLET. No more. At a full outlet I once asked someone if I could unplug their cable and share my Belkin with them. Of course. And you can be the one to open up extra outlets for others as well.

The Belkin Mini Surge Protector: A quick brick to throw in an outside pocket and an essential tool for every traveler.

You can find it here for about $15.
