One of the best decisions I ever made was getting a portable wall charger that I kept in my luggage at all times. It meant one less thing to remember to pack (and then remember to unpack once I returned) and it gave me peace of mind that if I somehow left it behind, I would still be able to charge my phone at home post-trip.
If you’re a heavy traveler, getting yourself a travel-only fast-charger is almost a no-brainer. But I would take it one step further and invest in one that can be plugged into any outlet, no matter what country you end up in. The Ombia P5 Wall Charger is the one you’ll want to keep tucked into your carry-on at all times.
With its Qualcomm Quick Charge capabilities, it can charge phones, tablets, gaming consoles, and even laptops with both a USB-A and USB-C port, meaning you can charge two devices at once. But the best part about this plug is that it comes with three different adapters that keep your charger chugging along in the UK, Australia, and across Europe. Just swap one of the travel plugs in and you’re ready to go.
It has protection from overheating, short-circuiting, and the dangers of over-voltage, so you can safely plug it into that sort of sketchy outlet in your hostel in Germany. And because of its smart charging technology, each of your devices will get the right amount of juice every time.
This is the plug you’ll want by your side as you travel the world (or just travel to a friend’s house).
