Hack Your Vacation With These 3 Tech Accessories

We love to travel and as a family of 4 who have very different tastes, we have found that each of us have some favourite items which we can’t leave home without. My husband is super simple…give the man some swim trunks, shorts and a Hawaiian shirt and he’s happy but for the 2 tweens and I it’s a different story.


These days luggage can cost you extra money so we’re pretty strict on what we bring…but there are some items that are just plain worth giving up the luggage space for. Aside from clothing and bathroom products there are some items which I’m not sure everyone thinks of bringing when they’re planning a vacation. We call them our Hacks that make our vacation even better! We just returned from a WONDERFUL trip to Mexico where my daughters and I spent quality time in the sun and it was during a discussion there with another family that we realized not everyone thinks of bringing the things we do.

As a member of #TeamTelus I often get my paws on some cool accessories that are included in this list. Telus has a WIDE array of devices and accessories so shopping in their online store is always a treat for me. Competitive prices and their out of this world customer service make my life easy when I’m shopping. Yes I’m a fan…as a customer for over 20 years you’d expect me to be gushing right?

Hack Your Vacation with these 3 Tech Accessories 

  1. mophie Powerstation Plus – This baby is my FAV! It has saved my virtual life on many occasions while travelling and there are both Andriod and IOS versions. With 4x battery life it’s never let me down! A high-performance design featuring hideaway charge & sync cables and available with a Lightning or Micro USB connector. An additional high-current USB port enables this external battery to charge two devices at once.
  2. ULTIMAGE EARS MEGA BOOM BLUEThis is Sydney’s number 1 packing item. She is 12 and loves to bring this speaker with us to the beach or pool area to choose her own tunes! Don’t worry, we don’t annoy the other guests too much. The splashproof design means you don’t have to worry about rain or spills. You can even clean it with running tap water – just don’t submerge it. The other added benefit is that we use it to play white noise in our hotel rooms because of light sleepers.
  3. Puregear Selfie Stick – Chelsea adores this Selfie Stick! She can often be found standing in front of a group of friends yelling “say cheese!” with her phone in the selfie-stick. We call it a drive by selfie ala Chelsea. With its bluetooth capabilities, it’s perfect for any device.

  1. I have to have my phone and charger at all times, but there is always a situation where you have no power source to plug into, then I’m not happy..lol

  2. I have a small $5 stick power thing that has really helped out in emergencies. This mophie Powerstation Plus would be amazing.

  3. My chargers for my iPod touch and Samsung tablet.
    Hubby is worse than that – chargers for his 2 (!) cellphones, his IPad zip cord charger, his GoPro camera (and all its gear),possibly more goodies AND a power bar for all these cords

  4. So many things I can’t leave without – iPhone, charge, earbuds, DSLR, underwater digital camera…the list could go on forever!

  5. That would be my phone, I’m trying to get used to always having it with me as my kids insist (all adults). Caused quite a panic when they couldn’t reach me, I’d left it overnight in my car by accident and when they tried to reach us on the house lines & 4 cell phones we were at the cinema. I sure took some heat for that. :-)

  6. I usually bring a power charger and cables for at hotel charging. For other tech, my smartphone, camera, tablet and ear buds!

  7. The power station sounds amazing, I’ve trying to decide which one I should purchase for trips & camping!
    We can’t travel without music & earphones & our little SoulMate speaker!

  8. I always travel with my ipod, its small and portable, but allows me to be able to access my contacts and email
