The Lifeline IT Travel Tech Guide 2023

Travel Tech Guide 2023 - a miniture spy camera being held between a thumb and forefinger

With the holiday season now in full swing, we thought we’d revisit the subject of travel tech – the gadgets, items and apps that help make the most of your journeying.

Whether you’re off on an exploring adventure, planning a week relaxing on the beach or simply having a ‘staycation’, our tech twosome Adam and Daniel recommend the practical items to make your travels go smoothly.

Senua Anti-Spy Detector
We touched on the issue of ‘hidden’ cameras in Airbnb and holiday rental properties in last year’s Travel Tech podcast and the issue is not going away, with an increasing number of private and public venues using cameras to keep check on visitors. To help tackle this, people are choosing to invest in spy camera detectors to find and block hidden cameras. There are plenty to choose from, such as the Senua Anti-Spy Hidden Camera Detector, which can also pick up bugs and other tracking devices.

Milo Action Communicator
For outdoor pursuiters, the Milo Action Communicator is a fresh take on walkie-talkies. It enables hands-free, multi-way, group voice conversation, meaning you can speak to your fellow adventurers without needing phones or Wi-Fi. Ideal for sporting types as it can be used whilst surfing, skiing, cycling or walking.

WACACO Minipresso
If you’re a coffee lover, this mini expresso maker is the ideal travelling companion. The WACACO Minipresso works by piston action so there is no need for power or batteries. The device, which is compatible with Nespresso capsules, is lightweight and literally fits in your hand, making it perfect for when you’re far from amenities.

Native Union Charger
Having an effective multi-charger that can power-up several devices that have different connectors is a must when holidaying with a family or group. There are plenty available on Amazon or similar, but many of these are not great quality and can be false economy. It’s worth spending a little more to get a really durable and reliable international charger that’s tiny but powerful enough to charge laptops as well as phones and tablets. The Native Union Fast GaN 67Watt charger is a good choice at around £50.

Zeiss Lens Wipes
Although technically not a tech item, wipes are a travel item that are great at keeping your tech screens clean and free from sunscreen and insect repellent. The Zeiss brand come individually wrapped, can be easily stored in your pockets or backpack, are suitable for coated spectacle lenses and are available from Boots, Amazon and camera shops.

Vollebak Technical Clothing
Created by two brothers whilst running in the desert, Vollebak clothing uses science and technology to create clothes from the future that can withstand the extremes of climate change. Products include more off-the-wall items such as a ‘disease resistant’ Full Metal Jacket and Solar Powered Puffer Jacket, but the Carbon Fibre T-Shirt is practical, strong, comfortable and lightweight.

Don’t forget to listen to our latest podcast series, also available in video. Titled ‘Analogue vs Digital’, Adam and Daniel go head-to-head debating whether new technology and innovation really do beat more traditional forms of tech. Listen and watch here:
