Essential electronic gadgets for traveling

Essential electronic gadgets for traveling

Long distance travel can get pretty boring. These are all the electronic items that I keep in my bag to keep myself entertained.

This video is not sponsored nor did I receive any money. While I sometimes get bags for free, I have to pay custom fees, shipping fees and all my videos have lots of production costs (e.g. software and musicrights). Therefore I invest my own money into all of these videos and I have no intention to be biased towards a product or company. All opinions in this video are my own unless stated otherwise.


As you might know from my „How I make a buying decision“ video: Rather than just looking at the pros, I like to evaluate the cons or flaws of an item and then evaluate if I can live with them. That is why in my video reviews I concentrate more on the cons of an item rather than going over all the features. Therefore everything shown is just a fraction of all the points that go into the verdict and score of an item.


A Quicklook usually covers pre-production units or items that I only used for a short period of time. While Reviews cover final items that I have reviewed intensively.


For all my videos I decided not to include links for the products. Everyone is living in different countries and therefore has to deal with different shipping and customs fees. That is why I would advice everyone just to Google the product within their country to find the best deals.
For instance: I live in Germany, It wouldn’t make sense to give you a German link while you might be living in USA or Asia. I hope that is understandable.


However here is the gear that I use to create videos:

    I have been using my iPad more lately to those things. easier on the eyes😆 I still use my phone a lot.
    And for those asking about using Go Pro for videos, yes you can, if you got a smart-moible-cell phone you can use those, I use my phone a lot for video.

    Any alternatives to the Bose as they are too expensive for a lot of people.

    Wouldnt the quality of the audio get diminished with two adapters stacked?

    Hi Bo! I’ve been looking for a popsocket alternative and was intrigued by the ring thing you have on your phone. Can you link to it? Also, I’m worried about the tension of the ring being loose and it failing as a stand. Do you anticipate this happening? Is it pretty well made?

    Love this series!

    Awesome series Bo, have a safe trip back. Looking forward to the next video.

    hi Bo! long time fan of your videos, i just wanted your thoughts on using a GoPro 7 for general content creation. As an amateur who just wants to make different kinds of videos is it a good investment if i have the cash for it?

    I only miss a kindle, which is my number one device!

    Awesome! I always carry an extra pair of wired headphones just in case something happens to my primary

    Hi Bo!
    Excellent content lately but I would just say that the color gradation looks a bit off, the tone of skin gives a bit of a zombie-look.
    Interesting video today 👍
