Summer is fast approaching 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.

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 for sure, you don’t want to end up with no means of communication to home or to your travel mates or even lose valuable information you keep in your device.
