Travel gadget essentials

I've been away from my office a lot over the past few weeks, and during that I found that I grew to rely on a few essentials to make my life easier.

Zendure X6 battery pack

To say that I like this battery pack is an understatement. I love it. But the more I use it, the more I realize that there's more to this than being a really good power bank. A feature of the Zendure X6 that I really like is the way it becomes a super-handy power and data hub when I'm out and about.

With it I find that I can leave behind my multi-power USB charging hub and instead can either just rely on a small standalone USB-C charger, or if I have my MacBook Pro, the charger and charging cable for that.

Anker PowerPort Atom PD1

My absolute favorite USB-C charger. Small (world's smallest PD charger), reliable, runs cool, and super reliable.

What's not to like? And with a 30W output, it's perfect for keeping most of my portable devices topped up.

Moshi USB-C Car Charger

I love this USB-C in-car charger because despite being small and unobtrusive, it provides up to 30W of power to charge power-hungry USB-C laptops, smartphones, and tablets, and also features a USB-A port offering up to 12W of power for high-speed charging of my other accessories.

Anker USB-C-to-Lightning cable

Far more robust than Apple's offering, the Anker USB-C-to-Lightning cable is now my favorite way to charge my iPhone.

UGREEN Portable USB Charger for Apple Watch

While I have nothing against the charger that ships with the Apple Watch for home or office use, when traveling it becomes yet another cable to get tangled up in stuff. 

The UGREEN Apple Watch charger does away with the cable and plugs direct into a USB port, doubling as a handy stand for the Apple Watch when it's charging.

Soundcore Liberty Air earbuds

There have spent a lot of hours in my ears as of late, and are now my go-to earbuds. Lightweight, unobtrusive, and robust, while also offering excellent sound quality and battery life, these are everything I want from a pair of premium earbuds.
