There are many reasons people travel these days. Sometimes they’re just travelling for fun; but more often recently, travelling for work is the most common reason (especially when recreational travel is more of a risk due to Covid-19).
We spoke with TechQuarters, who have provided business IT support London companies across the capital rely on; but they also serve businesses across the UK, which means their IT engineers occasionally need to travel – and when they do, there are certain tech essentials they never travel without. It is important to note that, due to Covid-19, it is extremely important to take all the necessary precautions while travelling. TechQuarters always recommend wearing a personal protective equipment, washing hands with soap as regularly as possible, and keeping hand sanitizer with you at all times.
20,000mAH power bank
When you’re travelling, communication is important, whether you’re communicating with work, or a client, on your way to a meeting; or even if you’re travelling for personal reasons and need to keep in touch with friends or family. The last thing you want to happen is have your devices run out of battery and die on you. This is why keeping a large capacity power bank on hand while travelling is recommended.
There are some very affordable 20,000mAH power banks on the market – such as the Anker Powercore Essential. This capacity easily allows for 2-3 full charges of a smartphone, and can even support at least 1 full charge of a tablet such as the Apple iPad.
Occasionally, when delivering onsite IT support services to customers, TechQuarters’ engineers find it useful to bring a laptop with them; and in order to do this safely, they need a reliable laptop backpack.
The Lenovo B210 Backpack is an affordable but highly reliable back. It has a simple, streamlined design, and it is made with water repellent fabric – so even with the type of weather you find in London, it will keep your laptop safe on your travels.
When travelling for work you probably have a lot of technology with you – such as cables, USB drives, SD card slots, power banks, laptop and phone chargers, and possibly even mobile devices like tablets.
Most IT support companies advocate careful organisation of electronic equipment, so that nothing ever gets lost and tasks that require electronics aren’t slowed down while you look for the right equipment. This is why having an electronics organiser with you whenever you travel is a important.
Universal Smartphone Car Mount
Sometimes you may need to rent a car whilst travelling for work; and if this is the case you want to be sure you can maintain communications in a safe manner. This is why keeping a universal smartphone car mount is a good idea. You’ll be able to mount your phone so that you can take hands-free calls whilst driving. What is more, it also means you can set up GPS navigation no matter what car you’re in; and some car mounts even enable you to charge your phone whilst it is mounted.
