Lifehacker has a post that didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t already know, but it’s something I should share with you all in case you didn’t think of it.
If you don’t travel as much as I do you might not know that finding outlets in airports can be an art form. If you do travel as much as me, you might know this and just cross your fingers and hope. But Lifehacker’s tip reminded me of a tip I can share with you all. Never travel without a power strip! Now, that sounds a bit crazy – who wants to lug around a big power strip when traveling? Well, it doesn’t have to be big and bulky, you can buy one of these puppies.
The Monster 4 outlet power strip folds in on itself, takes up minimal room in your carry on and costs between $10 and $15 (depending where you get it). I have had mine for years now and it always shocks people when I walk up and ask if I can plug their device in to my power strip so that we can share the power. It has also made me quite popular in some airports and come in handy in hotel rooms without enough outlets.
So, if you’re like me and about to head to Monterey for Internet Librarian, you might want to run out and get yourself a power strip so that you can stay connected in the airport without worrying about running out of juice.
