Imagine a backpack that uses solar energy to charge all your USB-powered devices. It has enough space to store a 15-inch laptop, a tablet, smaller pockets for your iPod and phone, AND a spare set of clothes and shoes. A water resistant bag, it also has a reflective outline to keep you safe in the dark. What’s best is that it comes with a fluorescent green cover for when it rains, making it perfect for a trek or a weekend getaway. A kick-ass backpack, we think it’s the most convenient way to charge all your gadgets on the go.
How is a GoPro different from any other camera? Firstly, it’s waterproof (up to 40 metres), so go take a dive without thinking twice! It also has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which helps you connect to the GoPro app on your phone and preview your pictures, and… wait for it… share them instantly on social media! If you thought that was all, here’s the best part: The camera weighs only 127 gms, making it super portable compared to bulky DSLRs.
This inflatable lantern is extremely useful if you’re going for a trek or to areas with little light. Most of us carry a torch for emergencies, but with this solar-powered lantern in hand, you won’t need anything else. Just keep the lantern in a place where it gets enough sunlight, either on the dashboard of your car or on your backpack. Once it is fully charged, you can fill it with air and use it to your heart’s content. The Luci Lantern has a button right between the solar panels, which when pressed multiple times gives you a light beam, full beam and a blinking beam, which you can use when you need to be spotted from a distance. It occupies very little space and is thinner than a book!
This emergency car jump starter kit contains a car power bank, which can be used to start your car in case of an emergency, and also has a battery charger with 2 USB ports.

It also turns into an LED flashlight when you’re in the dark, has a strobe light to attract attention and an SOS signal flash on full beam in case of emergencies. Easy to carry, this gadget can fit easily inside your pocket.
Most of us struggle with getting clear pictures on the go, because image stabilisation isn’t a common feature on most smartphones.

For people who travel regularly and often go from one place to the other, a digital weighing scale is a must, just so you know you’re not going overboard with your luggage!

It’s very handy: there’s an LCD display that tells you when you’re overloaded. What more do you want?
