List of hardware you will need this vacation

So the vacations are on and many of you must be planning to go on a trip. Here is the list of what you will be needing the most other than your visas and tickets..!!

Battery packs

Almost all smart phones and tablets are battery guzzlers, but what if you’re out and about and nowhere near a power socket?  Battery packs to the rescue! Whenever you need the extra juice, simply connect these portable packs to your devices via USB to charge.

1.The CoolerMaster PowerFort: Rs. 4999  

Is one of the best backup battery packs we’ve seen. It uses a lithium-polymer battery that allows for the simultaneous charging of up to two devices.the device has LED status indicators to display power levels and comes with an Apple devices charger attachment, as well as a Galaxy Tab/Note charger tip.

2. Nokia Universal Portable USB Charger DC-16: Rs. 1499 

If you need only 5v-1A charger, then you will be well served by this. It comes with LED indicators and is sufficient to charge most small smartphones, including the iPhone and Blackberry devices.

Bluetooth Headsets

If you’re always up and about, a Bluetooth headset that lets you receive and make calls without having to juggle with your smartphone can prove to be a boon.

1.Plantronics Voyager Legend: Rs. 5690

Its over the ear loop keeps it firmly in place , also the call quality is ultra clear. this device has a battery backup of upto  7 hours and even announces callers name. it also lets you handle calls with two commands: “answer” and “ignore”. Another feature is that its water proof so you can even enjoys monsoons without a worry.

2.Nokia BH-505: Rs. 3300

If you’re looking for stereo headset , I would recommend this as it has splash-resistant, in-ear speakers, and 10-12 hours of battery backup.

Bluetooth Speakers

Not only these devices will augment the sound you get from your smartphones, but the models that I suggest also come with a built-in mic to let you answer phone calls whenever they are connected to your handset.

1.JBL Flip: Rs. 5990

It has clear crisp sound to fill a small to medium sized room and almost 6 hours of battery.

2.Logitech UE Mobile Boombox: Rs. 8995

Provides upto 8 hours of battery backup wih single charge, but its smaller size, nice metal finish makes it more ‘cute’ option.

Portable Storage

Your data is of ultimate importance and to store it securely, you need a solution that is reliable, rugged and with some form of password protection.
Hard Disk Drives

1.Adata DashDrive Durable: Rs. 5500 for 1TB

It is a USB 3.0 drive that incorporates military-grade shockproof and waterproof construction. Besides, it comes with the free HDDtoGO software that allows for data synchronization b/w your drive and PC.

2.Western Digital My Passport: Rs. 5999 for 1TB

             This one promises  password protected acess to your data through its WD Drive unlock software and auto backup through WD SmartWare that instantly backs up your files as soon as they are added or changed.

1.Corsair Survivor Stealth: Rs. 1950-Rs. 5800 for 16GB to 64GB

It is one of the few pendrives that come with USB 3.0 port and is waterproof. Its so damage resistant that it can even survive under your car’s wheels!!

2.Kingston Data Traveller 6000: Rs. 9999 for 16GB

It has AES hardware encryption and locks down itself after 10 attempts of password breakage. But it is much slower in speed of 11 to 19 Mb/s.
This is all I have got for now. Any queries and suggestions are always welcome. Till then happy computing and enjoy your vacations.!!
