How To Make Your Phone Charge Faster When Traveling

One of the scariest “first world problems” of technology that can happen while you’re traveling is when your phone is about to lose power. I mean, think of all the things you use your phone for when you’re traveling – travel documents, confirmations, membership numbers, addresses of places you’re going, maps, ride-sharing programs – SO MUCH! So when your phone battery is down to 2%, you want to charge your phone as much as you can as quickly as you can.

There are a bajillion (well, maybe not a bajillion. More like 3 or 4) ways to charge your phone but some will be faster than others.

How My Packing List Has Changed In 15 Years

I was just digging around in the darker corners of my hard drive and found copies of my packing lists from 2003 and 2005. I use a version of this list to help me pack for trips even today, but it’s been updated significantly in the last 14-16 years.

For that matter, short of a well-worded tweet, how can they even let the airlines know?
