- Hello and welcome back to "In the Know-- Out of a Suitcase," where we take the hassle out of travel. Choosing what electronics to bring on your trip can be a hard decision. Here are a few of my top picks. You can't go wrong with any of these products. If you like to read on vacation like I do, then I suggest investing in an e-reader like the Kindle. You'll be able to access any book you want, while saving space in your bag.

It also has excellent battery life, and I pretty much only have to charge it once before my trip and then I don't have to worry about it for the rest of my vacation. Vacations are a perfect time for photoshoots, and you won't miss an opportunity with this tripod from Texlar. A lot of tripods these days come with self-timer so you can capture the perfect photo, or video, because video is what's all the rage on social media right now.

Safety should always be a priority when traveling. I recommend this personal safety alarm from She's Birdie, especially if you travel solo. Having an easily accessible alarm system allows you to travel with a sense of security so that you can make the most out of your trip. I love to listen to music on the go. And believe it or not, it's possible to pack a Speaker.

The JBL clip 4 is perfect for hikes, beach days, or hanging around a campfire with friends. I like to travel with a portable speaker because I feel like it sets the mood wherever I go. The technology you choose to bring along with you can completely define your trip. My recommendation, bring only what you need and make sure it's good quality. This has been "In the Know: Out of a Suitcase." I'm Francesca. See you next time.
