3 Essential Tech Gadgets to Bring on a Business Trip

When it comes to business travel, Speed, Choice and Control can make all the difference — right down to the technology you bring with you. From multitasking devices to totally customizable options, tech expert Andru Edwards shares his latest tech gadget recommendations that will make your time on the road more efficient and enjoyable.

SPEED: Galaxy Note10+ 


When you need lightning-fast download and streaming capabilities, the Galaxy Note10+ delivers powerfully in even the busiest locations. Equipped with a Gigabit LTE connection, this device offers peak performance while on the road and on the job. For travelers with a next-level need for speed, a hyper-fast 5G version is available in supported areas. Savvy business travelers know that less is more, which is why scaling down your carry-on load is key. The Galaxy Note10+ achieves a full charge in just 30 minutes and eliminates the need to travel with multiple devices by combining smartphone, computer and gaming console (because even professionals deserve some downtime) capabilities in a single device, even offering mega mobile memory and an intelligent, ergonomic S Pen. More bang, less bulk.

CHOICE: iPhone 11 Pro


Tech lovers who eschew standard-issue devices will appreciate that the iPhone 11 Pro comes in four unique color choices: midnight green, space gray, silver and gold. This generation of the iPhone has also increased its battery life by four hours – a definite upgrade from the previous model and a big plus for travelers who might not have the opportunity to charge on the go. Also improved is the camera feature, which now boasts three lenses including a wide-angle option. You can capture more in your photos while still maintaining the portrait lens for snapping crystal-clear images when zooming in on distant subjects. The iPhone 11 Pro’s super retina XDR screen is Apple’s most vibrant ever. You’ve even got built-in spill insurance with double the water resistance. And say goodbye to the days of insufficient storage; the iPhone 11 can wield up to 512 GB of memory.

CONTROL: Peak Design Everyday Backpack


Control has never looked this haute. Whether you’re commuting to your nine-to-five or heading to a weeklong conference on the other side of the country, the Peak Design Everyday Backpack gives you a totally adaptable experience wrapped up in the brand’s clean, modern design. The top opens with the instant flip of a latch, and dual weatherproof side zips plus expandable external side pockets make both packing up and quickly accessing your items simpler than ever. Your tech gear and documents won’t get smashed inside, either. The backpack offers a dedicated sleeve designed to fit a small laptop, tablet or other precious cargo up to 15”. Customizable FlexFold dividers protect and organize your stuff, preventing the typical bottom-of-the-bag jumble at the end of a long day on the road or in the office.
