Spring Break

March 13th, 2013

Every year in March or April, families and college kids set aside their responsibilities for a week and enjoy spring break. The most popular destination is Orlando, followed by Las Vegas and Cancun. It's likely that technology is going to be in the suitcase, wherever you go. The average American household has 1.6 Apple devices and most can't bear to be separated. Beyond phones and iPads, there are lots of gadgets that can get you ready for a week in the sun and fun.

Technology to Pack

Travel & Leisure magazine looked at its top vacation gadgets, highlighting tablets, cameras, phones and the latest portable headphones. We like the Samsung MV900F Pocket Camera with a touch screen that flips around 180 degrees for self-portraits and built-in Wi-Fi to upload photos to your phone, computer or Facebook. Also, we wouldn't travel without the noise-canceling headphones like the Polk Audio UltraFocus 8000.

Keeping all devices charged can be difficult on-the-go if you're not prepared. The IOGEAR Ultra Capacity Mobile Power Station is compatible with most smartphone and tablet devices, handheld gaming systems, digital cameras, and mp3 players, plus carries some of the highest charging power on the market.

Keep it Charged

According to a study conducted by Panasonic, nearly half of all parents say they would spend more on technology if it would increase family time. So got a rainy morning on your vacation and the family feeling antsy? Music or movies on your laptop can fill up a hotel room and make it a richer experience with IOGEAR's USB Theater Sound Xperience Audio Adapter. It brings sound to life by using DTS® Surround Sensation to create virtual surround sound through your two stereo speakers.
