If you're traveling on a baggage allowance and want to slim down as much as possible, the Mu could be a good option to charge your electronics.
The U.K. travel adapter can charge any smartphone through a USB connection, and is a compact alternative to bulkier charging gear — as flat down, the measurements are only 14mm x 55mm x 60mm. The foldable plug is able to charge any smartphone, but keep in mind that it cannot handle any high-voltage gadgets, including your tablet.
Currently, this £25 piece of kit is only available for U.K. customers, but the developers plan to release overseas versions in the future.

A travel-proof compact camera
Backpacking can often mean slinging your gear into a bag and going, as well as the need to navigate across rocky terrain.
If you'd like to take pictures while you're at it, or perhaps take photos in the sea, then a shock-proof and watertight camera is a must.
One such example is the Olympus TG 820. The camera is shock-proof from heights of up to two meters, water resistant to a 10m depth, and will not be damaged in temperatures as low as 10c.
The compact camera costs £164 ($251).
I think most of us have been in the situation when on the go, you need to use a gadget such as your smartphone, tablet or notebook, and you've run out of juice.
For these kinds of predicaments, the Powermonkey Extreme can serve as a conduit for emergency charging. It is able to charge most 5V devices, including an iPhone (six times), iPads and Samsung Galaxy tablets. A standard phone can be charged up to 12 times.
The storage facility can be recharged with a universal mains charger, a USB port or an integrated solar panel. The product can be purchased for £120 ($184).
