Whether you’re gearing up for a long-haul journey or a quick hop to the next city, packing your carry-on involves more than just tossing in a book and a snack. Making sure your electronic devices are fully charged is crucial to a smooth and enjoyable travel experience. Here’s a rundown of the essential gadgets you should charge before you head to the airport.


Your smartphone is your ultimate travel companion. From boarding passes to last-minute emails and capturing snapshots, a fully charged phone ensures you stay connected and organized. 

Tablet or E-reader

Long flights are the perfect opportunity to catch up on reading or binge-watch a new series. Make sure your tablet or e-reader is fully charged for hours of entertainment.

Power Bank

Perhaps the most crucial item to charge is your power bank. This handy device can be a lifesaver when you find yourself in a seat with no power outlet or if your flight faces delays. You’ll be able to charge your phone or other devices no matter where you are.

Wireless Headphones

No one enjoys the airplane’s hum or the sound of a chatty seatmate when trying to relax. Charge your wireless headphones fully for a peaceful journey immersed in your favorite tunes or movies.
