Noise cancelling headphones
If you travel to work on the bus, train or tube you’ll know only too well how noisy it can be, especially during the morning rush hour. Having a pair of noise cancelling headphones is an essential item in a commuters arsenal. The headphones will let you block out noise so you can watch your favourite show, listen to an ebook or get some work done on the go.
An ipad or tablet
If you have an ipad or tablet taking it on your daily commute will help pass the time, let you catch up with e-mails, the news or even catch up with your favourite tv show on the go. If your commute is a long one on the train a tablet is definitely a daily essential. Rather than carrying a newspaper, book and laptop you can have everything in one lightweight gadget.
If you enjoy listening to music on your daily commute then investing in an ipod will definitely be something to think about. You can store a huge amount of music in one place, create playlists and listen to your favourite tracks without draining your iphone battery. They’re small and lightweight so perfect for carrying around all day. Paired with the noise cancelling headphones you can listen to your music in peace.
We live in an age where technology plays an important role in our life. We use our phones to stay in touch, surf the web and even reply to e-mails, then there’s our tablets and laptops which we use on the go to stay up to date with the latest news, shows and read ebooks. The only downside to using our devices on our commute and throughout the day is the battery life, or lack thereof. Having a portable charger lets you recharge your gadgets on the go so you can stay connected no matter where you are. There’s nothing worse than being stuck on a delayed train without your phone or tablet.
