Summer vacation is here and you have everything planned to go to the sea or to the mountains. Of course you will certainly take your smartphone, but other high-tech devices could prove to be useful or pleasant for your stay. We have selected five to slip into your suitcase:
1 – An e-reader
If you want to take a large number of books with you, the e-reader is a device that does not take up a lot of space and can hold many books. Among the many models on the market, the Kindle Paperwhite from Amazon is a safe bet. It is now water resistant (IPX8) and convinces as much by its display quality as by its reactivity. You just have to accept the display of special offers on the screensaver (related exclusively to the Kindle universe), or add 10 euros more to do without.
2 – A Bluetooth speaker
To take your music on vacation, the Marshall Emberton 5.0 Bluetooth speaker boasts 20 hours of battery life and powerful 360-degree sound, according to the manufacturer. Compact (68 x 160 x 76 mm), this portable speaker is not afraid of splashes, or even a brief dive in water (IPX7 certification).
3 – An external battery
To avoid running out of fuel, the Elecjet PowerPie external battery has a high capacity of 20,000 mAh. It benefits from QC 3.0 and USB Power Delivery PPS fast charging modes, with a maximum power of 45 W at output, but also at input. Thus, it can be fully recharged in just 2.5 hours. It has USB Type-A and Type-C ports.
You can also opt for the solar charger Anker Powerport Solar (90 euros).
4 – Wireless headphones
To enjoy music from your smartphone, wirelessly, true wireless headphones are very practical. In the latest models, we have appreciated the quality / price ratio of Cambridge Audio Melomania 1, which benefit from graphene in the design of the diaphragms. In addition, they offer very good autonomy (9:20 a.m. according to our tests) and can be recharged in their storage case.
5 – An action cam
To immortalize your exploits in hiking, in the mountains, by bike and at sea, the GoPro Hero8 Black is a safe bet. This 12 Mpix camera films in 4K, offers excellent quality and benefits from the HyperSmooth 2.0 stabilization system. It is waterproof up to 10 meters deep.
