When you’re on the move, these super-smart technological wonders can make all the difference in the world.

Seasoned travelers know that the key to an excellent trip is having the right item at the right time—a game-changer that can single-handedly turn around any situation.

These days technology often comes to the rescue (perhaps more often than we’d like to admit), and toting along gadgets with real-world utility is practically essential.

Nearly everyone has faced a dead phone battery, an iffy WiFi connection or a cacophonous flight. Granted, these instances are fairly mild on the travel-emergency continuum. But it is comforting to know that high-tech yet simple gadgetry exists to help.

The portable Mophie Powerstation Duo, for example, can charge two devices at once. The Kanex mySpot transforms an Ethernet connection into a secure wireless network, and the Bose QuietComfort in-ear noise-canceling headphones work acoustic miracles amid any din.

From an ultra-light camera that acts like a more-advanced version of itself to an iPad keyboard cover you never thought you needed, here are our favorite pieces that make life on the road that much more enjoyable.
