Today’s woman is a globetrotter. She is not afraid to pack her bags and take off to exotic locations by herself, without the luxury or comfort of planned itineraries. And while she is bound to come across some amazing moments during her journey, she also needs to be aware and alert all the time. The world is her playground but having the support of some added gadgets can make her life-on-the-go more comfortable and easy. Going on a backpacking trip is much better than a traditional trip as it gives the traveler a chance to interact with locals and actually experience the essence of the region. It is definitely an experience of a lifetime and here are some fun gadgets that can be her perfect companions on this adventure of a lifetime.
A backpacking woman is not afraid of taking the rugged route and the GoPro Hero 4 Session CHDHS-102 Action Camera will be the best camera to capture the best moments of her journey. The best part about the camera is not only the comfortable form and the rough and tough design but it is rather the fact that the camera is waterproof. The camera comes with a 8MP resolution and automatically adjusts frame rates according lighting conditions for enhanced low-light performance. It is capable of taking 10 photos per second. The video resolution is 1440 pixels and an Ultra Wide Field of View.
While on the go, the most important thing is to always stay connected. You cannot afford to have your smartphone powering off when you’re outside, exploring the expanse as you never know when you might need to make that call or what emergency might arise. It is wise to always have a power bank handy. Also, make sure the powerbak is one which has enough juice to last you the entire day if not more. The Case Power Urban Big+ 12000 mAh Power Bank is perfect as it is compatible with most smartphones. Despite the power, it is completely lightweight and classy looking. The bank comes with 4 LED indicators so you are always aware of how much charge you have left.
It might seem like the simplest and most mundane of things but this one simple and mundane gadget can save you from a world of trouble. While on a backpacking trip, you never know which dark alleys you might have to walk down alone and it will definitely help to have a torch handy. Not only will it give you confidence to carry on but it will also be a form of protection. The Eveready Innova DL91 Rechargeable Torch is the best bet as the torch is rechargeable which means, you don’t need to go hunting for the right kind of batteries. Simply charge the torch and done. Plus the torch comes with 4 hours of continuous power – which is a lot! The torch has super white bright 3.1 V LED and is encased in a bright and durable plastic exterior. The switch is a slide switch.
After a point of time, you really wish you had packed your backpack a little lighter. While on the go and all alone, you are bound to feel alone and bored at times and all those books you packed are likely to weigh you down. Instead opt for the lightweight Kindle and you can carry your entire library on the trip! Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Wi-Fi + 3G 6″ eBook Reader comes with a week-long battery life so you don’t keep hunting for a charge point in the middle of nowhere. It has a glare free screen for better sunlight legibility. It comes with 6 inch display and 4 GB internal memory.
