One item that is often upgraded are phone chargers, which are constantly being improved, charging multiple devices simultaneously and at even faster speeds.

Travel presenter Samantha Brown explained why she thinks it’s worth upgrading your charger before going on a trip.

In a video on Instagram, she said: “I always like to travel with the latest and greatest charger.

“Every year they make these more powerful. They charge your devices faster.

“Older chargers are like, ‘Hey, I’ve got nine hours to charge my phone overnight’. This new one is like, ‘I’ve got 30 minutes.’

Newer chargers are also compatible with different devices, including laptops and games consoles, meaning larger and thicker cables no longer need to take up valuable space in your luggage.

Samantha continued: “This new generation also has the USB C port, which means I can charge my laptop or the kids’ Nintendo Switch.

“I always used to carry a big bulky charger and it’s not travel friendly at all.”

In addition to choosing the right charger, it can be almost as important to bring the right cable.

Samantha recommends spending less when traveling, but taking longer in hotels, where power outlets aren’t always where you want them to be.

She said: “Cables. The standard cord you usually get with your phone is fine. It’s nice if you want to charge something while it’s in a bag because it doesn’t get very tangled.

“But I always like to travel with six-foot cables, too.

“Six footers are perfect if you need to weave in and out of furniture to get to your bedside table or wherever you want.

“Six feet gives you a lot of room to work with.”

Samantha isn’t the only traveler to reveal how to get more out of chargers while on vacation.

In a video on TikTok, Liv showed Brooke how she uses a multi-plug adapter, allowing her to use six chargers at once, with just one travel plug.

Liv said she needs all six outlets to charge her two phones, air pods, Apple watch, gun and a battery pack.

She describes the hack as “life-changing”, and it seems many others agree, with the video gaining more than 1.5 million views.

One user said: “I feel really stupid for never thinking of that.”

Another added: “The year we did this was life changing, no stupid money spent on plug extensions.”

Meanwhile, this charger means you can keep multiple items fully charged, while using just one plug.

And this power bank can remotely charge four items at the same time, making it perfect for travelers.
