Must-Have Essentials for Your Next Trip

With many of the guidelines surrounding travel being gradually eased, there’s no doubt you have looked at the possibility of booking a trip!

Whether you’re considering visiting somewhere in the UK or abroad, it can take a lot of planning to make sure you are covered for any uncertain eventualities. When it comes to travelling abroad, keeping your eye on the ever-changing traffic light system is really important. Similarly, consider checking the local news of popular tourist destinations in the UK like Cornwall and Devon.

For many of you, packing your suitcase can be a source of stress as you try not to forget anything. It’s important to consider the little essentials as well as the bigger things, as they often come in handy when you least expect it. With that in mind, BuyaBattery takes a look at some of the must-have essentials to pack in your suitcase.

Travel Adapters For Foreign Plugs

Packing a travel adapter in your suitcase is something most of you will probably forget until the last minute! It can be helpful to buy one before you travel, as they can be particularly expensive once you reach the airport, train station or even motorway service station. 

Consider your destination and what types of travel adapters you will need, making sure you buy the right one. Some multi-adapters will offer compatibility with more than one destination, so you can invest in an adapter that has different settings for Europe, USA, Australia and more. This could provide great value for money, if you plan on travelling more once the rules improve.

Portable Power Banks for Power on-the-Go

You will typically take some type of USB device away with you, including smartphones, tablets and many children’s toys. If you’re often spending time travelling or out on the road, it can be helpful to have a portable charger to keep in your hand luggage or handbag, or even in your pocket!

A portable powerbank is a popular type of charger that allows you to recharge your smartphone or tablet, usually multiple times before the powerbank itself runs out of charge. It’s a very convenient solution if you aren’t near a mains plug for some time and you don’t want to run out of power before you reach your destination. 

There is a huge range to choose from, with different power capabilities depending on what you need. For instance, some will charge your phone just once, while others can achieve it multiple times.

Battery Chargers

If you are taking any sort of devices on holiday that use rechargeable batteries, like digital cameras, game consoles or some children’s toys, you should consider packing a battery charger too! After all, there’s nothing worse than your batteries running out sooner than you anticipated, which could leave you without a camera for your day out or might even result in bored kids.

Take the time to charge up your batteries before you leave the house, and pack a suitable battery charger in case you need to charge them up again. You’ll be able to get battery chargers for specific size batteries, or even a universal charger that can accommodate different sizes.

Spare Batteries

Packing spare batteries can always help, even if you don’t end up using them. You never know when your batteries will run out or stop working, so taking a spare pack with you could make all the difference. Just make sure you only replace batteries with like-for-like, or you could risk damaging the battery or the device itself.

You should always check with your airline where your batteries can be stored, whether in your hand luggage or checked baggage.
