Most of us have traveling streaks within us. When this triggers, we cannot help but pack our belongings and travel to some place that can satisfy our adventure craving. No matter if you are headed in across the country in an RV bus or cross the pacific to Jakarta, Indonesia or Guam, you just have to ensure that your gadgets like laptop, iPhones or iPod are fully packed and ensured. The Peterson Group, one of Asia’s leading distributer/ wholesaler of mobile accessories and laptop paraphernalia based in Taiwan listed three are three critical laptop accessories no summer or any season traveler can do without.
Not all countries have outlets similar to those in your locality unless of course you are just traveling some neighboring county. You’ll need to check and review local electrical standards at your destination. It’s really annoying to find out your North American plug won’t work in whatever summer paradise you’re headed to.
Last minute types who don’t mind paying a little more can probably find a shop in the airport that will sell you what you need or you can try and pick something up at your destination.
But you can also find out the correct adapter plug with a little research online and then head over to your local electronics shop. Another option is to get an international adapter that covers most of the world’s electrical needs in one device.
Most laptops can handle power all over the world. Just to be sure, check that your laptop’s power brick can handle up to 240 volts of input.
Protecting your laptop from bumps and scrapes while on the road or in the air is a must. The simplest way to keep your laptop as nick free as possible—not to mention clean—is a soft cover or bag. You can get a case pretty much anywhere from Best Buy to Target. Just make sure you don’t buy those fraudulent ones as they can easily be torn.
Ether-what? Yes, you may be exclusively wireless at home, but on the road nothing can save your bacon better than an Ethernet cable. Sometimes you end up in a hotel with a bad Wi-Fi connection or a choice between free wired Internet and paid wireless.
An Ethernet cable doesn’t take up too much room in your bag and you can probably even slip it into your laptop case if you need to. Just don’t leave home without it.
There are probably numerous other accessories others can’t live without, but these three basics are truly key for anytime you travel.
