Here are my internet-on-the-go items that I carry with me while on a road trip.
Power Converter – This keeps my computer and “hot spot” charged, as well as all my kids electronics that need charged. It easily plugs into the “cigarette lighter” connection in your car and has the capability of charging multiple items at once.
Cell Phone Charger – When I have “quick work” to do, I work through my phone and need to keep a strong charge. I keep a cell phone charger connected to my car at all times to make sure that I am never without charge when I need it.
Mobile Hot Spot – I use TruConnect mobile hot spot which allows me to have internet-on-the-go while away from the house. This stays in my computer bag and goes everywhere with me. There are a few “dead spots” on our road trips where I can’t get online access, but for the most part, this device is perfect for my area.
Computer Bag – You will also need a great laptop bag to carry it all in if you decide to carry your computer with you. I reviewed a great laptop backpack from Speck that I loved from day one. I have had it for a year now and it is still in perfect condition. I expect to use this for many years to come and will definitely purchase another one from Speck when it is time.
Do you carry a computer around with you? If so, do you have a mobile hot spot or do you use it in places that provide free WiFi?
