Each new year brings with it a new list of travel tech essentials. We’ve compiled a list of the pieces we couldn’t live without in 2017, from the best luggage to the essential headphones.
AWAY is a modern luggage company that’s innovating the way we travel. By blending ergonomics with technology this brant has stylishly created our new favourite collection of travel companions. Their smallest suitcase, The Carry-On, is perfect for those smaller trips, featuring a removable and rechargeable built-in battery, a TSA approved built-in lock and two compartments, one for clothes and the other shoes and any other hard objects.
Olloclip Active Lens Set
Give your travel photography a new edge and save room in your luggage with Olloclip’s Active Lens Set. The set features a multi-element telephoto and ultra-wide lens that increases your iPhone’s field of view while making it easier to shoot farther and wider. This travel companion is perfect for anyone looking to take quick, easy and amazing iPhone photos while saving the stresses of carrying a bulky SLR.
This wireless charger will change the way you think about our phone battery forever. Gone are the days of having a charger but forgetting your USB cable. Mophie allows you to quickly and efficiently charge your iPhone 8 Plus, Samsung S8+ or other wireless charging enabled smartphone by simply placing it on the pack.
Any self-confessed travel obsessive knows the importance of a good pair of headphones. After many years of testing, we’ve found that this product from Bose blows any others out of the water. Combining superior comfort, next-level noise-cancelling technology and world-class audio engineering, the QuietComfort 35 have placed themselves head and shoulders above any other over-ear headphones.
This Bluetooth tracker eliminates lost possession paranoia. Simply attach it to your passport, luggage, keys or favourite flip-flops and you can keep track of their whereabouts using a seamless smartphone app. Our favourite feature; if you’ve lost your phone, simply press the Tile button twice and it’ll ring, even if the device is on silent.
