Summer Must Haves – Stay Cool & Connected

Verizon Wireless Summer Must Haves

Summer is here and while getaways are being planned, there’s still a lot of packing to do. Make sure you include these tech travel essentials in your packing list before you zip up your suitcase.

WATER-RESISTANT PHONE

It doesn’t matter if you are not going to the beach. Chances are, wherever you plan to go, unfortunate things can happen — the weather can suddenly change, you could drop your phone in the toilet or it could get splashed with water by a clumsy waiter or beer by a drunk friend. One thing is certain, you don’t want to end up with no means of communication to home or to your travel mates, or even possibly lose valuable information you keep stored on your device.

WATERPROOF CASE

If you don’t have a water-resistant phone, opt to get a case that’ll protect your beloved smartphone from water splashes or accidental water dunking. This way, a broken phone won’t dampen your holiday (pun intended).

POWER PACK

Nothing sucks more that running out of battery when you are nowhere near a power source. Take along a backup power adapter so your devices won’t run out of juice at the most inopportune time. With it, you can take a million photos of the sunset without worrying about running out of battery power.
