Satechi Smart Travel Router/Travel Adapter with USB Port
There are some combinations in the technology world that are hard to see coming. Satechi’s Smart Travel Router/Travel Adapter with USB Port ($45) is one of them. That’s not to say it’s a bad idea, but packing a world outlet adapter, router, and USB charging station into one device certainly isn’t something that would pop into our heads. To travelers though, this combination may in fact make a lot of sense.
A slider on the back of the block allows you to switch between UK, Europe, and USA/Australia settings, popping out the appropriate prongs when in position. This covers more than 150 countries, but it’s worth checking out the whole list to ensure coverage. Once the prongs are out, you can plug right in to the AC power port. A Ethernet port is used to turn the device into a Wi-Fi router, repeater, access point, or client. Finally, there’s the USB port, which supports 2.1-Amp charging, suitable for iPads and iPhones.
