It’s easy to remember that you need to pack clothes, toiletries, and cash when you travel. Those are hardly ever forgotten. But now that we’re in the 21st century, there are travel gadgets that can make your trips more enjoyable or can minimize inconveniences and disruptions.
Here are the top 10 travel gadgets you should pack for your next trip.
10. Portable Charger for Mobile Devices
Even if you aren’t a millennial, you probably have a smartphone, tablet, or laptop and have reached a certain level of unhealthy dependence on it. There’s nothing wrong with that. Mobile devices have attained a level of convenience—and sometimes a necessity—in this time and age.

Amazon lists portable chargers from $13 – $125.
