Travel Accessories for Flying

Power Bank charger a must have travel accessory

External Power Bank

Having an extra, portable Power Bank Charger is a travel accessory I never leave home without. It’s a safety issue with me, I don’t want to find myself in a situation where I needed to call a cab or find an important email but couldn’t because my phone was dead.

This power bank has lots of battery life, being able to charge multiple phones at once, twice before it would run out of battery life. And its only the size of an iPhone.

Portable Luggage Scale

Digital Luggage Scale

Checking a bag is expensive, paying even more because your bag is a couple pounds over weight is an annoying and frustrating cost. Reduce stress by traveling with a Digital Hand Luggage Scale to weigh your bags before you get to the airport.

All you do is hook it on the handle of your luggage and lift up to see the weight. This is a great travel accessory for flying budget airlines.

The budget airlines are very strict about the weight of your bags especially if you’re trying to carry on your luggage like I always do. Avoid the stress of an overweight bag fee.

Reusable Water Bottle

I used to promote the Nomader Collapsible Water Bottle since it’s so compact and easy to travel with but I since became boogie, and use a Hydrogen Water Bottle.
