A couple of years ago I got a travel router not knowing if it would truly be useful for me. It has traveled with me on numerous occasions and has truly been a digital lifeline for me. Today I’ll tell you about another travel router that could be what you need to pack for your future trips. There will be an Amazon link that earns me a puny commission if you choose to buy from my link.
If you want to read about the one I have, you can visit RavPower FileHub Makes Geek Travel Easier. It is no longer available on Amazon so I went looking for an alternative should someone ask me what to get. Being a fan of TP-Link products, the best option I found is the TP-Link AC750 Wireless Portable Nano Travel Router.
First and foremost it is small so it takes little space in your bag. It includes a small battery so it can run wirelessly, but better to plug in the USB port so that it has power. If you truly need to power another device, you can also use the USB port to provide power to something like your phone. Just be warned it doesn’t have a lot of power stored. The USB port can also be used with an external hard drive to share files across the WiFi connection.
If you are somewhere with a wired Ethernet connection, use the included cable to connect to the network and share it wirelessly. Or you can connect to another wireless connection and create your own secure WiFi network. It supports both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands so you can connect to a wide variety of devices at the highest speed available.
Whether you are traveling to the other side of the world or just to a friend’s house across town, pack a travel router in your bag and make it easy to connect your devices.
