Tech devices and traveling go hand in in the current times. While there is a certain appeal to going on a total hiatus on tech-free camping, but the tech just makes things easier most of the times. And for the record, you can stay off social media to have a peaceful trip and still have tech devices to make the trip more convenient. Tech devices can be a lifesaver, from your normal earphone helping you survive a long flight or train journey, to that Bluetooth speaker that makes your visit to a couple-friendly hotel in Aerocity with your partner more romantic. But tech devices do come in all price tags, and some are more worth it than the other for the buck. So here is a list of must-have gadgets for tech-savvy travelers which most people in India can afford.

1. Sony WI-XB400 Wireless Earphone

Excluding the phone, which is like a necessity in the current day's scenario, if you had the option to choose only one tech device, it'd be a wireless earphone. There is just nothing wrong with wireless earphones, they let you survive unbearably boring situations with tunes of your choice, they are compact compared to headphones, and wireless to avoid all the hassle of having it disconnected from your phone. The reason Sony WI-XB4000 makes the best choice is perhaps the price tag compared to what you're getting. Now if one can afford an Apple Airpod (₹14,900) or Bose SoundSport(₹18,990), they surely are much better, but at almost 1/5 of the price of those luxurious devices, the Sony WI-XB400 fares quite well. With 15 hours of claimed battery life, fast charging support, and a perfect fit to the ears. Thanks to the 12nn drivers, the sound comes off nice and unlike most devices in this range that in the quest to increase bass ruins the mids and lows, and it also has a microphone. The wired Bluetooth design of these earbuds does mean they're not 'truly' wireless but that also means if one were to come out, it won't fall off totally unlike the Airpod designed earphones.

2. Anker Power core 20100

Phones are getting smarter and more powerful, with 120 Hz displays faster processor, more RAM than some Laptops, but that also means they eat up more battery. And for that same reason power banks have become quintessential for every travel. Maybe it is a business trip at a hotel in Delhi or a vacation with your partner to a couple-friendly hotel in Aerocity, you need your devices to be charged all the time without being stuck at a charging spot, and that is where power banks come in as a live saver. When it comes to choosing power banks, Anker is perhaps one of the most reliable and consistent names, and the Anker PowerCore 20100 power bank is a reason why. With two super-fast USB outputs and one of the best size to power ratio in the market, this piece of device is a beast. Both USB ports can send 5V 2.4A to your selected devices, for a total output of 4.8A and is one of the smallest 20000 mAh chargers. While it might take 10 hours to completely charge this with a 2A charger, the downside is it takes 20 hours to do the same with a 1A. Apart from that durability and construction is amazing like any Anker device, and even though a bit old, this power bank is worth the buck.

With a 7500mAh battery, this loud boy is going to stay for a long time playing beats.

And the tip of the iceberg is the JBL connect+ which allows you to connect up to 100 JBL speakers together (no joke).
