    I was wondering if you guys use any specific chargers to take while travelling. I always just travelled with the iPad charger and cable because the iPhone works with that as well and I’m trying to avoid carrying another cable / specific charger. Any suggestions will be helpful.

    Same here. Also, 90% of the hotels I've stayed at have USB charging ports built in to the desk and/or lamp bases.

    The interesting thing is that with my usage, I wouldn't need to bring my charging puck for my Series 4 for a 2-night stay.

    Sometimes I have to travel for a bit longer, like 3-5 days. I’m not sure if there’s any other options.

    I traded in my Series 1, and kept the charging puck. Bonus: now I have a spare one for travel!
    It's pretty compact as it is, so that will work for me on longer trips. Before I was just grabbing my Spigen stand with the puck in it, which does add a little bit of bulk when space is tight.

    There are some portable watch chargers with their own battery, but I don't see a personal need for them unless I was camping or really roughing it. https://www.imore.com/these-portable-chargers-let-you-charge-your-apple-watch-go

    When I travel, I'm usually going with an iPad, now 2 iPhones a watch and AirPods. Throw in the Pencil also.

    I bought a travel charger/case for Apple Watch and upon getting it in the house, I knew I'd never use it. Way too big and bulky to suit my tastes so I use the lightning cables and standard issue puck that comes with Watch.

    I do however take with me a 4 port wall charger and also carry 1 of the single standard issue Apple chargers because they're small enough and easy to use if you need to get power in an airport and well I paid for it!

    This is is the 4 port charger I use.

    I bring the basic 5w charger box and cable, as well as my Anker portable charger in case I run low on power and am not near an outlet.

    Have the two port version of that Anker charger and couldn’t be happier. Charger block, watch puck, two lightening cables, duel usb cig lighter port and a spigen magnetic vent mount tucks away in the rear outside pocket of my Briggs & Riley bag. Usually a MacBook charger & cable as well. Gives me everything I need and stays with the bag so I always have it.

    Ankers are the best. I love mine too. I never realized how much I’d use one until I finally got one.

    Are you talking about the multi port chargers?

    I’ve got an Anker multiport charger but also for when space is tight (and camping with no power) I’ve got a ugreen watch charger, also with a lightning cable built in, so can charge my phone and watch at the same time. Had zero issues with it.

    I updated the surge protector near my bed to this one, which includes four USB hubs, so my Anker 4-USB charger is now my travel block. Mostly, I’m in hotels with plenty of USB access, but better safe than sorry.

    Good being prepared. I find that I use my Anker at festivals/concerts and long flights.

    I have these all around my house but carrying one of those while travelling will not be ideal when space is at a premium and I’m going away for around 2-3 days.

    This is the travel one that I own - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BQCQZK...3051YYwYwnb2hi4dthixs6zdvmnvwi5ldnntw6ltdn5wq

    It’s a tiny thing that can fit into even the smallest pockets - I often though will travel with just the official cord from Apple just the shorter one they sell and use it with my larger battery packs. I do like having the small charger for certain situations where I do need just a bit of a top off - it can charge the watch from dead to 100 percent just once, but very handy - would consider bringing it along on longer runs where I’m uncertain if I’ll need a bit more juice.

    Yes I’ve topped up both my watch and 8+ at the same time for a couple of days whilst camping. Watch is currently on charge on it on the hotel nightstand as I type.
