How To Organize And/Or Keep Track Of Your Chargers, Wires & Plugs While Traveling

The electronic age is amazing. I mean, go back just a couple of decades and who woulda thunk that you could have your phone, camera, alarm clock, photo album, books, A/V entertainment, money, calculator, maps, GPS, plane/hotel/restaurant reservations and whatever else, all in the same place? Or that you could bring your computer with you anywhere because it’s not like the ones in the 1960s when you needed a piece of equipment that filled up a whole room just to do simple math equations?

The only thing about having all these electronics is that you need to make sure you have an energy source for them (you don’t have to plug in a book, right?). And the only thing about THAT is making sure that you bring all of your wires and chargers and stuff with you when you go from place to place. Sometimes they’re hard to keep track of, as evidenced by the huge drawer of iPhone, Kindle etc. wires they can “loan” you if you can’t find yours – when they just are everything that other hotel guests have left behind.

FuelRod is a reusable, portable charging system that allows you to fuel (charge) your mobile device on the go, and then recharge or swap for a fresh one at any FuelRod kiosk. After a relatively slow expansion, they came into the reality of millions of people when they were introduced at Disneyland and Walt Disney World in 2016.

When we first wrote about FuelRods a while back, we made it no secret that we had a very “ho hum” attitude about them. Besides a FuelRod’s inability to fully charge a modern smart phone, there were very few places to swap batteries outside the Disney parks, which made its convenience pretty limited.

Well, one of those things has changed, which is why our opinion of FuelRods has altered a little.

Must-Have Travel Items That Cost Under $10

We have several things we always bring with us when we travel. They’re not very large and we don’t need them every trip but we’re very glad we have them when we do. By this point, we don’t even bother to take them out of the suitcases when we unpack after a trip, because if we did, there’s a chance we’d forget to put them back. The best thing about these items are they all cost under $10 each and you might already have some of them in your own home.
