We imagine a lot of you travel for the same reasons we do -- to get away. From the screens, the emails, the social media, etc. Traveling is about experiencing; being present, meeting new people, seeing new things, and making new memories (oh, and eating a drinking).
Whether you’re hopping a plane to some new-to-you locale or packing up the dog and driving up into the mountains for a weekend respite, technology is probably (hopefully?) the least of your concerns when you’re out there exploring.
However, we live in a digital world. You may not be eager to scroll through Instagram or check for passive aggressive emails from your boss (not today, Mike!), but the reality is you don’t realize how much you need your phone until it’s dead. And since finding a reliable spot to regularly recharge while you’re exploring is a nuisance, investing in a solid backup battery is the wisest move you can make before you leave.
Since they come in all shapes, sizes, and prices, settling on the right backup battery or power bank for you can get a bit tricky, so we’ve pulled together our favorites for every type of traveler.
