Travel: 5 essential tools for your next trip

For the Stylish Traveller
Tan Leather Roll-up Wallet

This beautiful wallet from The Postbox comes into play when you’re on a road trip, or on short trips when you need to be a smart packer without having to compromise on style. Made of 100 per cent genuine leather, it comes with a money pouch with an enclosed zip, four card holders, three cord holders — minor yet extremely essential — and one pocket to accommodate a charger.

For the adventure junkie
ThrillSeeker Solar Backpack

Forget having to carry a portable charger with you on your next adventurous escape. This backpack by Lumos comes with an innovative solar fabric, which converts sunlight into electricity and charges a built-in battery. This battery can then be used to charge any USB-powered device, including phones. Perfect for cyclists, mountain bikers and even hiking enthusiasts, the backpack has a reflective outline, ensuring maximum visibility at night. While it is also water-resistant, it comes with a fluorescent rain-cover to guard against heavy rain.

For the voracious reader
Kindle Paperwhite

The all-new Paperwhite (which even comes in white) is lighter than a paperback, making it the perfect companion to a bibliophile. Moreover, a single charge will last you not just days, but weeks. To further entice you, Amazon has thrown in a high-resolution, 300 ppi display, making for crystal-clear reading. With 4GB of storage space, the Paperwhite can hold thousands of books and, unlike reflective smartphone screens, it reads like paper, with zero glare, even in bright sunlight.

For the beach bum
Woof 2 Bluetooth Speaker

Lie on your beach mat, put on your sunblock, and simply hit play. This palm-sized portable speaker by Creative delivers surprisingly loud audio and powerful bass for its size. Bluetooth technology ensures wireless music streaming that can be conveniently controlled via built-in buttons. The speaker, although not colourful like other versions available in the market, has a sleek metallic body. A single battery charge will last you up to six hours.
