MacBook Air 11-Inch
If you are planning on doing anything online that requires a screen larger than your smartphone or tablet, you will want to take along an Apple MacBook Air 11-inch. This is a must-have device for your trip to Chicago. What makes this particular laptop so essential is that it only weighs 2.4 pounds, which won’t weigh you down when you’re out walking or traveling, and you don’t scrimp on power or battery. You can also use it for entertainment, such as for viewing your favorite Netflix original series back at your hotel.
Noise Canceling Headphones
Noise Canceling headphones are an increasingly popular tech gadget for a good reason. Not only can you enjoy your favorite music while traveling to hotels and via O'Hare Airport, but you can also block outside noise while flying. You can enjoy some peace and quiet and easily drift off to sleep during your flight as a result.
While you will probably pack your smartphone’s proprietary charger, it’s important to have a good backup as well. A portable charger is the perfect extra juice as it packs sometimes triple the amount of battery as what’s inside your smartphone. They are also compatible with iPhone, Android, and Windows. If you want to limit the number of wires you carry with you while traveling Chicago, however, you can opt for the Flux portable charger, which includes built-in Lightning and micro USD connectors.
Ultra Slim Wall Plate with USB
When you arrive at one of the popular Chicago hotels, like the Hyatt Regency O'Hare Chicago, you will want to plug in all your tech gadgets to ensure they’re powered up. A slim wall plate with USB connectors is the perfect device for keeping your gear chugging along. There are integrated ports for charging your smartphone, but don’t forget to include an AC adapter as well for other gadgets that need charging. You can also use this device at the airport while waiting for a flight.
Whether or not you are an iPhone user, an Apple Watch is a great tech device to have on your trip to Chicago. The Series 3 edition, in particular, is a great choice because it allows you to free your hands as you can make and receive calls and texts right from your wrist due to the watch’s cellular connectivity. Of course, if you are a fitness enthusiast, you can also keep track of your steps, specific exercises and much more.
These are the best travel tech devices to have along with you when you go on a trip to Chicago. They will ensure that your trip is even more memorable.
