When readers shared their own travel tips and several really stood out as worth highlighting.
Take a portable powerstrip with you. Monster Outlets-to-Go includes a USB outlet.
Aside from the obvious benefit of having extra outlets, you also only need one adapter when in a foreign country, to plug in the adapter itself.
“This room has just way too many power outlets” – said no hotel guest, ever.
For past four years I’ve traveled with a power strip in my laptop bag.
The one I use is compact, has three plugs well-spaced apart, and also has a USB charging port as well.
And it’s just $12 at Amazon and eligible for Amazon Prime shipping.
It’s the first thing I take out of my bag whenever I get into a hotel room, since almost no hotel room has enough outlets. And it’s also useful in crowded club lounges and by gates where I need to share outlet space with other travelers or need to plug in more than one device (especially before boarding a flight that won’t have seat power, and after draining devices on a previous flight without power).
