Device Adapter and Charger Deals
Few things are worse than arriving at your hotel only to find you can’t charge your device. Check out our guides to the best travel adapters and best wireless chargers to make sure you don’t run out of battery when you land.
The MacBook’s power brick is a clunky beast. If you’re traveling with one, you probably don’t want to pack another bulky adapter. The PlugBug fits directly onto your existing Apple charger, works with sockets in 150 countries, and has two USB-A ports for charging other devices.
Forget juggling a bunch of separate cables to charge all your devices. This interconnected foldable charger lets you wirelessly charge up to three devices while bundling them all in one place for easy access.
Contributor Simon Hill says the build quality is “not great,” but it packs a lot of actually useful features in one package, including three 10-watt wireless charging pads, a USB-C charging port, an alarm clock, and LEDs night light. It even plays sleep sounds to help you fall asleep.
We recommend the Zendure Passport II Pro in our guide to the best travel adapters because it charges large devices quickly. It contains two USB-C ports, three USB-A ports, and an AC outlet. The 61-watt USB-C port can fully charge a 13-inch MacBook Pro in about two hours, so you can spend less time charging at the hotel.
Audio and Tablet Deals
From our guide to the best tablets, best noise-cancelling headphones, best wireless headphones and the best cheap headphones for $100 or less, keep you entertained and sane on long journeys.
Of all the wireless earbuds we’ve tested, they have the best noise-cancellation. Associate Editor Park Hall rated these products a 7/10, WIRED’s recommendation, saying its 8-hour battery life was class-leading. The charging case provides an additional 16 hours of runtime. Note that these tend to be a bit larger for smaller ears.
Gear editor Adrienne So says the sound quality of these wireless earbuds is excellent, they’re IP57 rated for dust and water resistance, and they have an 8-hour battery life. Like many premium earbuds today, the Elite 7 Active comes with a charging case that adds 22 hours of runtime.
This is Amazon’s flagship tablet — the biggest and fastest. It was recently updated (7/10, recommended by WIRED) with a brighter screen and 3 GB of RAM. The new Fire HD 10 Plus is also on sale on Prime Day. For $105, you can get 4 GB of RAM and wireless charging. Just know that the Google Office app doesn’t work on Fire devices. But if you ask us, that sounds like a good excuse to stop work and watch a movie instead.
It’s only a small miracle that Lenovo made this best Android tablet for under $350. The fact that you can get it right now for this price is a complete steal. The MediaTek Helio G90T chip inside is powerful enough that the P11 Plus rarely feels slow, while the 11-inch LCD screen looks sharp thanks to its 2K resolution.
Offers to help you pack
Before you can enjoy your trip, you must make sure that all your belongings are in good condition. My guide to the best travel bags with plenty of options for carry-on luggage and duffle bags, as well as more useful travel gadgets.
Some Samsonite suitcases are 25% off. Our favorite carry-on luggage, the Outline Pro, isn’t for sale, but Samsonite’s latest lightweight luggage is. All four wheels swivel to allow you to roll the bag along narrow airline aisles, and it has internal dividers for easy packing.
Product reviewer Medea Giordano and I have been using UrPowers for years to get rid of wrinkles on our travels. Mine has been using it for four years and it works great, I use it at home too. It’s small enough that you only need to steam a garment or two before needing to refill, but it’s compact enough to easily pack in any carry-on.
Airlines can strictly limit the weight allowance of checked baggage. For the past 10 years, I’ve used this scale whenever I plan to check a bag to make sure I don’t have to pay an overweight surcharge. It’s easy to use and simple – exactly the kind of user experience I was looking for before I got TSA lines and ceremonies at the airport.
