This travel router gives you Wi-Fi and charges your phone at the same time

If there’s one thing that traveling for a living has taught me, it’s to always be prepared for just about anything.

That means I typically travel with at least two pens (and a pencil just in case the ink runs out), a few extra pairs of underwear (you never know when you’ll have to extend your trip), and a few trusty electronic devices — including a portable charger and power adapters — just in case. That includes the HooToo TripMate Titan wireless router and charger, which not only allows me to charge my smaller electronics, but also lets me store electronic files on-the-go, connect to the internet, and more — all in one compact gadget.

The device is truly a one-stop-shop for all your travel electronic needs. The TripMate comes with storage backup capabilities so you can transfer all your photos and videos from your camera or phone if you need to make more space. It also works as its own wireless router, so next time you’re in a hotel room without wireless access, all you have to do is plug it into the modem to use the Internet. It even turns into a media streamer, allowing users to share videos, photos, or music across their connected devices easily. And, of course, the device comes with a built-in power bank with 10400mAh (or milliamper hour, which measures the energy capacity of a battery) so you can charge your iPhone or smartphone up to three times before having to recharge the TripMate.

With all of these smart features, it’s no wonder that so many Amazon shoppers rely on this multi-use gadget to stay connected while traveling. “I had my doubts but this is simply the best and amazing device,” one reviewer wrote. “I am typing this message in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean while both of my kids are watching Netflix and my husband is watching all the stuff in the hard drive while my kid is also downloading in another tablet. Yes this device works like a chime and can “share” the cruise rip -off WiFi you paid for ONE DEVICE… and share the connection to the whole family!..It is very powerful and truly worth every single penny of it!”

Another said: “I travel a lot for work, and I was looking to build my own private WiFi network off the hotel WiFi, and to view movies wirelessly from a 4TB external hard drive. I did a lot of research and decided on the HooToo Tripmate Titan. I was a little concerned about how difficult it would be to configure everything the way I wanted, but it turned out to be so easy. I have the Tripmate connected wirelessly to the hotel's WiFi, and my own private network running. I have the external hard drive plugged into a USB hub with its own power adapter, and I plugged the USB hub into the Tripmate Titan. My laptop is logged into the Tripmate Titan network and has internet access! I can also access all the files on the external hard drive.”

Heading out of town but want to make sure you’ve got absolutely everything you need to stay connected during your travels? Pick one up and see for yourself what all the hype is about. At the very least, you’ll have a new heavy-duty battery pack to keep your devices charged constantly.
