George Talks Travel Tech: 5 Verizon Accessories You Need for Summer Vacation

BASKING RIDGE, NJ – Verizon sells a ton of technology to make your life easier and more fun on your summer vacation. I’m going to save you some time and fill you in on the best travel gadgets and accessories that I rightfully take with me wherever I go.

JBL Flip 6 Waterproof Portable Speaker: I love listening to music while riding my e-bike when I’m on the coast, but most portable speakers sound tinny or are bulky to carry around. Enter the JBL Flip 6, which is now semi-permanently mounted to my Juiced Hyperscrambler 2 that I take with me wherever I go during summer downtime. Seriously, there’s nothing cooler than rolling down Ocean Avenue in Wildwood, New Jersey with Hot Water music blasting through the dual-sided woofers. It also makes me much more visible to oncoming traffic, which means a safer ride for me and my four-year-old passenger.

Chromecast with Google TV: Here’s a vacation-saving tip if you’re traveling with a toddler: preload and connect to all your favorite on-demand apps on your Chromecast before you leave town, and simply plug it into a free HDMI port on the TV to your Airbnb for instant access to all the content you watch at home. As a bonus, get Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ and more included with select Verizon 5G Unlimited plans.

Belkin BOOST UP CHARGE PRO 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad with MagSafe: As soon as I walk into a hotel, the first thing I do is plug in my Belkin Wireless Charging Bed next to my own bed to act as a battle station for all my smart devices. This specific model is my favorite because it’s flat and easy to pack in carry-on luggage and eliminates three separate charging cables. I keep two on hand for my wife and I so we’re not fighting over a charger.

Razer Kishi Gaming Controller: Want to play from the beach (or just about anywhere)? Just pop your iOS Where android smartphone between the Razer Kishi and you have the perfect mobile gaming experience that leverages console gaming. You can easily play console-quality games through the Microsoft GamePass library or get the edge on mobile games with the dedicated controllers. Trying to score bonus points while working on your tan? I was able to play Gears of War on the beach in Fort Lauderdale on Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband1 with very low lag and speeds that eclipse Wi-Fi.

Mophie Powerstation Go Heavy Duty with Air Compressor: This charger/compressor/starter combo recently saved my vacation. We were heading to Washington, DC and I caught a nail in my tire the day we were heading home 225 miles. With no repair shops open on Sundays and spare parts in the car, I had to rely on my mophie powerhouse to get us home, checking the pressure at each stop and refueling accordingly. We got home with no problem and my son’s tablet was also charged all the time with plenty of charge to spare. I can’t recommend it enough.
