A recent online survey carried out by Holiday Hypermarket found that 72% of the more than 2100 adults who took part, would sacrifice the usual holiday essentials (like sun cream, beach towels and swimwear), in favour of squeezing technology and power cables into their suitcases. Participants of the survey also claimed that they will be taking an average of six technology devices away with them on holiday this year. So we’ve decided to give you some suggestions on just what those six summer tech essentials might be. If you want to suggest others, then we want to hear your ideas – share them in the comments section!
2. Ebook Reader or Tablet
I have to admit that I'm a real lover of physical books and was slow to embrace the whole ebook revolution. However, after a few holidays where my novel fell apart from the sun melting the spine glue and my better half drenching them with sea water, I decided perhaps it was time to go digital. Most Ebook readers feature e-ink screens, allowing you to read in direct sunlight without any issue. Of course it also saves you space and weight in your case when compared with a traditional book. If you are happy to sit in the shade and aren't bothered by the sun's glare then a tablet is a good option, allowing you to store ebooks, music and videos for you to enjoy.
Of course if you are planning to take any electronic device away with you, please don’t forget to take the chargers, cables and relevant plug adapters if necessary.
