Traveling with a Crowd? Here’s the One Thing You Must Pack.

Giverny Monet

The Giverny gardens were lovely. But what if my camera battery died!

If you’ve got wine, a baguette straight out of the oven, cheese, and a rooftop terrace in Montmartre, what else could you possibly need?


Traveling with a family of 5 adults means you’re packing a lot of devices. Finding places to plug them all in is a challenge.

I was very happy that I’d brought along an Olixar 4 USB Mains Charger on our family trip to Europe. In days gone by, you were covered if you packed a single outlet adapter. The only thing you cared about plugging in was your hair dryer.


Today, everyone travels with phones and tablets that require constant juice to keep them running. And no one wants to listen to a nineteen-year-old whine if she can’t Snapchat photos of the love locks on the Pont des Arts.


The Olixar is a lightweight, dependable charger with 4 USB ports. We used it in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, and it provided reliable juice for our Apple and Samsung products. It comes with a 2-year warranty and removable prongs that permit use in a number of countries, including the U.S.

Even when I travel solo, I have a phone and a laptop that need charging. Bringing a single port means I only have to find one outlet when I arrive and remember to retrieve one plug when I leave. Available for $38.49, consider giving the Olixar a permanent place in your travel bag.
