This is going to make my list of top 10 presents to buy a traveler this year. The Satechi Travel Router/Travel Adapter juices gadgets in over 150 countries (with the four most common plug configurations) and helps you create wireless network while on the go. It also doubles as a router able to convert a direct internet connection into a private connection for added security and mobility. The AC power port and 2.1A USB port charges smartphones, tablets, laptops, cameras and more quickly and efficiently.
There are four router functions with the device: router mode, repeater mode, access point mode and client mode (I have no idea what that means but maybe you do). I do know that the device is compact and its cube design fits easily into any briefcase, suitcase, backpack or handbag.
