Invest in quality travel tech gadgets, not all accessories are created equal. We’ve gone through our share of external battery packs and smartphone fisheye lenses and will share our winners. Check out these must have travel tech accessories for your camera, computer, tablet, and smartphone.

  1. I also bought a 13" laptop (not a macbook thought) because it can easily fit inside my smallest backpack. It’s a bit more pricey than the 15" ones but it serves its purpose.

    1. Tbh I also have a Chromebook which is 11" and I think an even better size, but unfortunately I can’t do everything I need to do on it.

  2. I can see all of this coming in handy for me. But how do you keep your devices Dave when you travel? Aren’t you worried about it getting stolen?

      1. I keep my devices in cases or bags that keep them out of sight. I try not to be too flashy, and I don’t stay in shared rooms! Luckily I haven’t had to deal with any theft.

  3. This is interesting. We’ve though about taking a Polaroid-esque camera with us, but have you found it useful? Did you actually grab it over your regular camera or smartphone camera?

    1. I love mine! I certainly don’t grab it over my camera or smartphone, but use it to take additional pictures and to share photos with others (if I meet up with someone, we’ll take a few, and I’ll give it to them).

  4. I love gadgets. Most of my carry on bag’s space is taken up with gadgets. Although, honestly, you have to draw the line somewhere. Do we really need a laptop and a tablet? (probably) But I think the instant camera and all its accessories could stay home to save space in the bag.

  5. I love the color coordinated – ness of everything!

    I try to pack super light and usually leave most of my gadgets at home BUT always take a phone. It’s a camera, computer, and phone all in one!

  6. I totally love the instax camera – I’m saving some money for a new one 🙂
    And thank you for showing the lovely smartphone cover, it’s so lovely!

    1. A photographer friend of mine recommended it to me! I think it’s great if you’re shooting in a lot of light.

  7. Love that everything is so organized and love the color! I am bad at when it comes to the accessories part but will be sure to reference this post!

  8. Great post! I love discovering new travel accessories that will make my trips more organized! These are some great items.

  9. I love instant cameras not just for instant memories for me but to give to locals I meet along the way. I find it a great way to spread good will when you want to take someones portrait!

    1. I couldn’t agree more! Whenever I meet up with friends I take multiple instant photos so I can give them one as well.

  10. I love the design of your blog and the quality of the pictures! My compliments! Regarding the travel essentials… I’m very hesitant about the magic mouse. I’m going to be working while travelling next year, so it would make sense to take it with me, but at the same time, I know it’s not strictly necessary! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m in love with my magic mouse, I do a lot of photo and video editing, so having a mouse is essential for me.

  11. I’m starting to travel with less and less tech. Give me my laptop and Canon camera and some chargers and I’m happy. Less is more for me, but to each their own.

  12. This is such a useful and well put together list. I have some of these items already, but there are so many things on here I would have never thought about.

  13. A pretty elaborate tech list for travelers and one that I agree with wholeheartedly. Love the decal and have always preferred wireless mouses. Huge advocate of the GoPro so that’s certainly
    a handy camera to have on the go. The Charger pouch is something new and I will certainly
    look into it because that’s the one issue I face the most – devises dying out. Thanks.

  14. Thanks for sharing this amazing post. For similar kinds of Electronic accessories Visit They have the best travel Electronic equipment available at reasonable rates.
