Top 5 Gadgets for the International Entrepreneur

For the last couple months, I’ve been traveling internationally extensively so I wanted to share my top 5 gadgets / technologies that enhance my productivity while traveling abroad.

1) D-Link Pocket Wifi Router

By far, the most important gadget for the traveling entrepreneur. Allows you to share pricey hotel Internet connections without being billed for every MAC address you connect. I’ve used this same router for 2 years now, and never had any problems. Connections are always rock solid.

2) X-Mini II Portable Speaker

Unfortunately, my ultra-portable laptop has poor quality speakers. Watching videos and listening to music is important to me, so I always bring along my X-Mini. This speaker packs a punch and its tiny! I especially like it because It recharges using a mini-USB (just like my BlackBerry).

3) VPN / Proxy Software

An annoying thing when going abroad is that I can’t see USA targeted Google Adwords ads and SERPs are distorted. That’s why I pay for VPN / proxy services that let me tunnel back to America and surf the web as if I were still in the USA. VPN software is also helpful for watching Hulu and Netflix while abroad.

4) Android Phone or iPhone w/ Fring or Skype App

The Skype app for iPhone is extremely valuable when traveling abroad. In my experience, it works flawlessly and gives you the ability to make cheap international calls over WiFi. The last time I checked, the only way to get Skype working on Android was using the Fring app. Nevertheless, my primary phone is still a BlackBerry with international roaming / data plan because I hate touchscreen phones.

5) Belkin Mini Surge Protector + Dual USB Charger

This gadget is especially helpful in airports / lounges where power outlets are scarce. The convenience of being able to charge my BlackBerry + laptop is awesome. Plus, since there are multiple outlets, you can score easy karma points by sharing your powerstrip with other travelers.
