    everything, I only ever travel with a small suitcase and sportsbag at the most.

    Travel light is my motto.

    I make sure my laptop is in carry on luggage but the rest can go in the cargo hold as I can replace most of it easily.

    How about power adaptor in case of overseas travel? Not only once I was running dry after a while because I could not recharge on long haul flights due to different sockets.

    For work Hops (Usually within Australia), I just take my Phone, Surface, Chewy, Headphones and work folder. Usually keeps me busy.

    On international flights(ive been to Thailand and Japan numerous times), Phone, Laptop/Surface, Headphones, Chewy, Hand sanitiser, Hoodie, Sleeping tablets, Magazine and a book. Generally gets me through all good.

    I guess so, but I would not count on this. I was recently flying from Tokyo to BKK, that's a 7 hour flight with TG, they did not use the latest version of the 747, and there were definitely no USB ports. And anyway, charging through USB port is very time taking, maybe ok for BT headphones, but for sure not for a laptop.

    Hence, Powerbanks. For Tablets and phones. Need to invest in one!

    Well, yes, powerbank helps, but at one point it also needs to be charged.

    There are these very convenient 1-in-all adaptors for travelers. They have plugs for all major sockets.

    You take them precharged, that's the whole point. They are a backup for when you don't have charge on your device.

    Switching between 110 ~ 240 volt, accommodating 5 different sockets. There are even all in one with more plugs than 5. The traveler's tool. 9$ at amazon.com :D

    Actually only 2 pens there. The bottom one is my Ti Pen Click, which i used 99% of the time. The second one up is a Qantas freebie that was in the seat pack and i kept because the Ti Pen refill died mid flight. The next one up is a precision stylus for the iPad, and the top one is a stainless steel sharpie, so not quite a pen :)
