Travel Tuesday: THE Essential Gadget For Your Next Vacation

Avoid a travel disaster with one basic but life-saving accessory: an all-in-one rapid charger.

We know this may be an obvious travel accessory choice if you vacation often like we do. But we’ve tried many, many, MANY portable battery chargers in recent years and we’ve finally found a multi-device charger that’s affordable and loaded with features and benefits.

The charger of our choice is pink (of course), and available in a couple of clicks from Amazon. It’s the VRURC Portable Charger and it retails anywhere from $30-$60 depending on the color, when you purchase it, etc.

Before we go into the details, we want to let you know that you can find these features on numerous chargers out there, so it doesn’t necessarily have to be this specific brand—but it has been our favorite to date. You can search for similar items at varying price points that will serve the same function, some potentially charging items faster or slower.

Our favorite feature, first and foremost, is the built-in wall charger—because nothing’s worse than having to have yet another charging cable for the charger itself. This feature makes it easy to pop the charger into a wall outlet in your hotel room each night. The battery read-out is also handy so you can be assured that your charger has enough charge to charge your chargeable devices.

The attached cords feature built-in lightning, micro-USB and USB-C connectors, as well as input ports, as well as a standard USB output port and a separate USB-C input port. This means you can charge up to three devices at once, too.

Go from zero charge to 60% in only 30 minutes (iPhone 13 used as reference).

It’s fantastic to use on a flight to your destination, too, because you can’t always count on in-seat power supply on every plane.

We promise, you’re going to wonder how you ever lived without one of these, especially if you plan full-day excursions while vacationing. You’ll never miss taking the perfect photo, posting to social media or keeping in contact with your friends and family via voice or text.
