Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

In today’s day and age there’s a whole heap of technology to aid us with our travels. So much so that you’d probably need a backpack full before you go backpacking. We’re blessed in the fact we’ve everything from state of the art compasses to devices ideal for our in-flight entertainment.


And 2015 will be no different. There are some excellent products ready to be packed into your suitcase and taken away with you. We highlight the best gadgets to enhance your experience whether you be in the UK, the Far East, or wherever your passport takes you…

Juse Charger

Perfect for if you’re out enjoying the Australian outdoors is the Juse charger. Gone is the need for a plug socket as the Juse uses solar power to keep your smartphone fully juiced.

It’s ideal for all those heavily relying on Google Maps to get them from A to B, using photovoltaic cells which are two to three times more efficient than what you’d find in your mobile’s battery. It not only acts as a charger, but a case too, and don’t worry it is designed to work on low-light so will even charge when you’re in gloomy London.

TP-Link TL-MR3040 Router

We love this idea. There’s nothing worse than slow internet in a hotel room whether Skyping home to family or spending the evening downloading the latest apps – and you can’t have the internet cutting out on you then.

There’d be nothing worse than spending a rainy evening only for the Wi-Fi to go down. The TP-Link TL-MR3040 router solves this with ease. Simply plug your hotel’s Ethernet cable into it and up the speed of your connection and run up to five gadgets on the device.
