Basking Ridge, New Jersey Verizon sells a lot of technology to make your summer vacation life easier and more fun. I will save you some time and provide you with the best travel gadgets and accessories that I take with me everywhere I go.
JBL Flip 6 Portable Waterproof Speaker: I love listening to music while riding my electric bike when I’m at the beach, but most portable speakers seem small or cumbersome to carry around. Enter the JBL Flip 6, now installed semi-permanently on the Juiced Hyperscrambler 2 that I bring with me wherever I go during my summer downtime. Seriously, there’s nothing cooler than rolling down Ocean Avenue in Wildwood, New Jersey with Hot Water music blasting off its dual speakers. It also makes me more visible in oncoming traffic, which means a safer ride for me and my four-year-old rider.
Chromecast with Google TV: Here’s a great way to save your vacation if you’re traveling with a young child: Preload and sign in to all your favorite on-demand apps on your Chromecast before leaving town, and simply plug it into a free HDMI slot on Airbnb TV for instant access to all the content that you see at home. As an added bonus, get Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, and more included on select Verizon 5G Unlimited packages.
Belkin BOOST UP CHARGE PRO 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad with MagSafe: The moment I walk into a hotel, the first thing I do is plug the Belkin Wireless Charging Bed next to my bed to act as a battle station for all my smart devices. This particular model is my favorite because it’s flat, easy to fit in a handbag and eliminates three separate charging cables. I keep a couple of these on hand for my wife and I so we don’t fight over a charger.
Razer Kishi Game Console: Want to play from the beach (or just about anywhere)? Simply place your iOS or Android smartphone between the Razer Kishi and you’ll have the ultimate mobile gaming experience going into console games. You can easily play console-quality games via the Microsoft GamePass library or take advantage of mobile games with dedicated joysticks. Trying to score some extra points while working on your tan? I was able to play Gears of War on the beach in Fort Lauderdale via Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband1 with very low latency and speeds that beat Wi-Fi.
mophie powerstation works with air compressor: This supercharger/compressor/jumpstarter recently saved my vacation. We were heading to Washington, D.C. and I found a nail in my tire the day we were headed home for 225 miles. With no repair shops open on Sundays and no spare in the car, I had to rely on my mophie power plant to get us home by checking the pressure at each rest stop and filling them accordingly. We got home without any problem and it also kept my son’s tablet charged the whole time with plenty of charge to spare. I cannot recommend this enough.
Additional 5G features for summer fun
If you’re traveling abroad with a select Verizon 5G Unlimited plan, don’t forget that you get a free TravelPass day each month and unlimited mobile hotspot data. This means you get unlimited calls, texts, and data in more than 210 countries and destinations for 24 hours, included every month for as long as you stay on this plan.
Verizon Visa® cardholders also get 2 free TravelPass annually, no foreign transaction fees 2 when spending abroad, and no annual fees either. Here’s an extra life hack: When you open a Verizon Visa Card account, you’ll also get up to $100 in credit applied to your wireless bill for the first 24 months – just use the card to pay your Verizon bill every 3 months.
Want to bring your data with you to the most popular beaches, lakeside resorts, or mountain resorts in the United States?
