TECH TRAVELLER DON’T GET IN A TANGLE


THERE’S PLENTY OF KIT TO OFFER A HELPING HAND ON THE ROAD, WHETHER IT’S UNTANGLING YOUR CABLES OR KEEPING THINGS SAFE AND DRY


With so many things


needing to be charged, sort your cables with Fuse Reel’s range of cleverly designed plug and headphone winders for Apple tech. These neat cable organisers attach to your existing chargers and power cables so you can ‘reel’ them up for storage. The MacBook power supply is particularly annoying as it has two cables with a transformer in the middle and the Side Winder does a great job of storing it neatly for travel. Technology doesn’t like to


Everyone hates having to untangle a nest of cables and peripherals when opening up a suitcase or travel bag, so why not invest in a cable organiser to keep things neat and easily accessible? Bellroy has a great range of protective cases with internal


GET THE GADGET Adata SD600Q 240GB


The Adata SD600Q 240GB is a rugged and compact solid-state drive (SSD) that has plenty of capacity for both backing up and storing content to watch while you’re away. An SSD will give you the fastest transfer speeds possible and will stand up to the rigours of travel much better than a mechanical drive (HDD). The pocket-sized SD600Q comes at a great budget price, but you’ll


need to check you have the right cables as it doesn’t ship with the most current USB-C cable or transformer in the box. However, these can be picked up cheaply from any good electronics retailer. RRP: £55. adata.com

get wet, so when planning a snow or beach trip, make sure you pack plenty of protection for your delicate devices. This could be as simple as a roll of zip-lock bags to seal things up in between uses. LifeProof. co.uk sells a range of cases and backpacks that will keep your gadgets safe and dry in style. Starting at £80.99, the waterproof backpacks aren’t cheap, but if you’re going to be hiking through wet weather, it’s worth remembering that a regular backpack won’t keep your technology safe in a sustained downpour.

TOP TIPS FOR...


Often, one of the first things I notice about a hotel room is how few plug


sockets there are — and I’ve got lots of devices. Here are some tips on charging on the go


TIP 1 A universal power adaptor,as the


name suggests, can connect to most sockets. Look for one with multiple USB and even USB-C sockets, allowing you to charge several


devices at the same time even when limited outlets are provided.


TIP 2


Charge your phone more quickly with 2.4V USB sockets. For even speedier charging, look for a


universal plug that has Quick Charge 3.0 (QC 3.0) technology.


TIP 3


If you’re travelling outside the EU, you might need to check what voltage your devices run at. Not


all adaptors transform voltage, but ‘travel voltage transformers’ are inexpensive and widely available.
