Wireless charger to always be connected.
Taking and posting pictures uses up a lot of battery, but travelers never have to feel the panic of the one-percent battery alert, if they keep Mophie’s fast-charging station on hand to stay connected.

Parka rolls up and fits just about anywhere.
Uniqlo’s ultra-lightweight down jackets provide warmth while also being lightweight enough to stuff into any travel bag.

Travel-friendly neck pillow is a must.
Some neck pillows can be bulky to carry around the airport. The Trtl Travel Pillow is smaller and has a hidden internal neck support system to hold a weary traveler's head and neck in the best position for sleeping on a plane or train.
