With the ever-increasing temptation of taking a gap year, there has been a surge in recent years of students and even established career people taking a year out from studying or working to travel around the world. Rising almost exponentially with this number of ‘gappers’ is the number of personal and independent travel blogs available on the internet that regale the office/library bound with tales of travel, adventure and the ways of different cultures
A large contributing factor of these travel blogs is Wi-Fi. With the ever-increasing availability of Wi-Fi, independent travellers and backpackers alike can enjoy the freedom that comes with being able to update their sites from almost anywhere. Of course, we’re all familiar with Wi-Fi being offered at big establishments such as McDonalds or Starbucks but now Wi-Fi seems to be becoming a world wide phenomenon with more and more tiny, off-the-beaten-track type places such as hostels and coffee-shops offer free Wi-Fi.
While Wi-Fi may be more pronounced in small, independent establishments, access to a decent, safe power supply may be more difficult to come across. By packing a replacement laptop battery, these indie travellers can continue publishing to the internet and working on articles without having to worry about an unsafe power outlet. Extra laptop batteries can also allow them to do what it is they want to do in the first place – to travel freely and to be free from a desk as they do it. One laptop battery can usually power a laptop for around three hours (on average) – however, carry around two or three extra/spare laptop batteries and a laptop can be powered to almost a whole day, around nine hours.
At Laptop Power UK, we can dispatch most of our laptop batteries on the same day as they’re ordered.
