20 Travel Survivalist Gadgets That You Didn’t Know Existed

1With all the crazy stories going on around the world – terrorist attacks, Brexit, and political coups – I’m beginning to think that these whack-job survivalists I see on television aren’t that whacky. While I’m not deterred from traveling (and neither should you be), I might consider packing some of these gadgets just in case crazy happens.

Packable Tents

Just in case you’re on a road and Armageddon strikes wiping out your hotel, a packable tent will help ensure you have shelter for the night. ALITE makes tents that fold into a disc which you can easily stuff in your trunk or suitcase.

Luggage Tracker

Not all survivalist gadgets need to be for events that resemble summer blockbuster movies. Some are for practical, regularly occurring incidents like lost luggage. Tile makes a Bluetooth enabled tracker that will help you locate lost luggage.

External Battery

Popular apps like SnapChat, Instagram, Facebook, Pandora, and YouTube are all huge battery drainers. You don’t want to be stuck without juice stranded on the side of a highway with a broke down car. How in the world will you call for help, let alone capture the incident on SnapChat?

Always keep a charged external battery with you to avoid having to use your packable tent.
