We’re always looking for easier ways to travel. Whether you’re going on a road trip, or more importantly when you’re travelling abroad, gadgets can always make your life a lot easier, and especially when you’re travelling.

Check out our round-up of the best travel gadgets out there for less than £100.

Power bank

You can never go wrong with a power bank. They can save you a lot of time and hassle! I personally would recommend the A-series portable charger by Zendure, as it’s a lot smarter than it looks. First of all it’s little. It weighs only 136 grams! This particular power bank is designed for travelling. It can hold up to 95% of its charge after six months without use, making it the ultimate travel emergency portable charger.

This product includes ZEN+ technology. If you don’t know what this is, it means that the charger delivers the best charging power to deliver to your device as soon as it connects, as well as automatically turning itself on and off when you connect a device. You can also charge the bank whilst it’s charging a device.

The A-series is safe to take on board, you’re also allowed to use it as a carry on item. Titan Airways use the A-series to power their pilots’ electronic flight bags! Finally, Zendure offers an 18 months warranty. They’re even so confident you’ll love it that they’ll replace the product for free, in that time, if anything goes wrong.

Tile have created a gadget that can track your valuable items. You simply attach your tile onto your keys, leave it in your bag or even your wallet. Depending what type of tile you decide to purchase, depends on what functionalities you can get. You can even use your tile to find your phone by double tapping the button on your tile and your phone will begin to ring, even on silent. Your phone can track your tile by seeing it on the map. As the tile can reach up to 200m on bluetooth, tile remembers when and where you left something behind. You can create a search party with millions of users of the tile community.
