Travelling isn't always the most enjoyable experience, no matter how often you do it. But with the right tech and accessories, suddenly the process of getting to where you need to go and making the most of the time there is easier. The addition of dead-simple and inexpensive accessories like Mophie's Encore Portable Power Bank and Aukey's USB-C Cable 5-Pack addresses the little frustrations we've all had while on-the-go, like your phone dying at the worst time or the power outlet not working on an airplane. These will ensure you can recharge your devices, so they're ready to go when you need them.

When you're ready to upgrade your travel gear, there are fantastic buys out there like BauBax Bomber Jacket 2.0 that integrates items like a neck pillow and eye mask, so you don't have to pack them separately. Plus, they are always ready at a moment's notice. Also, the Sony's WH1000XM3 Headphones are great for blocking out distracting noise around you, like the hum of an airplane engine or sounds from a train. You can catch some ZZZs or relax with your favorite tunes or a good movie wherever you go.
