Well I have two favorite, do not hit the road without them, type travel tech products. By non-standard, I mean not a laptop, cell-phone, headphones, etc. The first is an Apple Airport Express. This may well have been discussed on this thread, but honestly, searching for "airport," and "express," on a travel forum returns too many results for me to sort through. This product is basically a glorified wireless router, which easily takes a hardwired internet connection and creates a secure wireless network. Essential for hotels that lack WI-FI. The second is a Belkin 3-outlet (plus two USB port) travel surge protector. I did search for Belkin, and nothing came up so I do not think it has been discussed here on MP. It is basically a tiny, swiveling surge protector with 3 AC outlets and 2 USB charging ports. As we all know, hotel rooms never seem to have enough outlets, and this is a great solution. Unplug the bedside lamp (not the alarm clock!) replace it with the Belkin SP, plug the lamp, your computer, and whatever else into the SP's 3 outlets, then your iPhone and your camera into the two USB ports, and you are good to go!
