Everyday Carry Items for the Connected Individual is about electronics and connectivity. In the post below you will see all manner of portable chargers, cables, adapters, small electronic devices, and things that make the modern technophile’s life easier.
I never seem to have the right charging cable, adapter or memory card when I am out doing something in the field.
In order never have to stop shooting videos, I started collecting different charging cables and battery packs to ensure that I always had power and could connect my devices together
I doubt any single person would find use for every item on this list, but since nobody’s needs are the same I wanted to give you lots of options.
Personally, I haven’t tried every item on this list, but there are a few items on here that I swear by, others that I wish I owned, and a few that I just think are neat.
Like all my other posts, you can click the picture to view this item on Amazon.
