We’ve written about portable chargers many times before. They’re the travel gadget that flight attendants say they never leave home without because when you’re constantly on the go, you just can’t afford to have your phone, your lifeline, die on you. And you never know when you’ll have access to an outlet or charging station. (Speaking of outlets, did you know that you should never use an airport charging station and if you do, you should use this product?)

If flight attendants say they never travel without a portable charger, then you know it’s a travel must-have. Because who knows how to be a more prepared traveler than a flight attendant? This INIU portable charger can hold up to a week’s worth of charging capacity and can charge up to three devices, which is the main thing I like about it. You and your travel companions can use it simultaneously or you can charge your own multiple devices, like your phone and your tablet, at the same time. It can also charge smaller devices like AirPods, your smart watch, fitness tracker, Bluetooth speaker, etc.

But that’s not all: It’s got a large digital LED display so that you can always see exactly how much power is remaining. That’s always been one of my biggest pet peeves about portable chargers – you need them as a back-up and it sucks when they’re out of juice and you don’t even realize it. Plus, it has a built-in flashlight, which can be useful for everyday tasks like reading or when you go camping but is also invaluable during a blackout or other emergency.
The best part is that this charger is currently on major sale (57% off at the time of publication) on Amazon.

NOTE: If you do order this charger, it may come in a package that says that it is forbidden for transport aboard passenger aircraft. It has to go in carry-on baggage, not checked luggage. Here’s what you need to know.
A few other essentials I always travel with:
-a universal adapter when I’m traveling out of the country
-a travel extension cord
-a travel power strip
-a 3-prong to 2-prong adapter
-an electronics accessories organizer case
I ordered the charger from Amazon, but could not figure out how to charge the charger. The cable that came with it was to connect the charger to the phone. I just got frustrated because their website was no help and others online seemed to have the same issues. Maybe I gave up too soon!
