Whether you're a frequent traveller, budget flyer or making your very first trip to Norway, few types of journey aren't made more bearable with the help of some gadgets. The latest in travel tech can keep you occupied on public transport, help with your travel plans, and even provide help in emergency situations.

Here's four must-have items for your next trip to Norway.

Keep your smartphone charged

Portable chargerIf you're travelling to Norway it's likely you'll be away from your accommodation for long periods of time. Whether you're on the road, camping by a fjord, hiking in the mountains, or hunting the northern lights, it's important to keep your smartphone charged and ready to use.

Many portable chargers are available, but the Aukey PB-N15 20000 mAh Dual-USB External Battery Charger is the best of the bunch.

It comes complete with two USB ports allowing two devices to be charged simultaneously. The charger intelligently detects the input current of the connected devices to maximize both compatibility and charging speed. An iPhone 6 can be charged at least seven times using this charger, which itself charges fully in ten hours.

A compact alternative to a bulky DSLR camera

Compact travel cameraDSLR cameras take terrific images but they are bulky and awkward to bring with you on a long trip around Norway. The Samsung NX3000 is an ideal alternative to a DSLR, combining great quality pictures with a lightweight casing, perfect for travellers.

Take crystal clear images with the 20.3MP CMOS sensor and shoot 1080p HD video, before sharing it all with your family and friends thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi and NFC functionality. Don't forget to smile!

Take your book collection

Kindle Paperwhite e-readerThe best-selling Kindle Paperwhite is a fantastic e-reader built for travellers. Lighter than a single paperback book, the device holds thousands of electronic books. It's the device I rely on to read almost all of my fiction books.

On the Kindle Store, you can choose from an incredible range of available titles, with over a million titles available at under $2.99.

Have you tried reading on a tablet before? If you find it a frustrating experience, the Kindle Paperwhite is the perfect solution thanks to its glare-free screen, even in bright sunlight, and a backlight that doesn't hurt your eyes as much as a brightly-lit tablet screen.

Secure your documents, photos & files

Secure storage deviceA USB stick is useful for travellers as it’s the easiest way to share or backup photo and video files.

It's also the safest way to print out important documents without needing to login to email accounts on shared computers in hostels or internet cafes.

The Corsair Flash Survivor Stealth model provides 256GB of storage and is virtually indestructible thanks to its hard-anodized, aircraft-grade aluminium housing and EPDM water seal.
