The only thing about going off the beaten path and on an incredible adventure is that you might end up sacrificing your connection to the outside world. But what about those of us must stay connected, like travel bloggers and adventurers. A new device, the Solis X WiFi Smartspot, offers a solution to staying in touch with the outside world while on the go.
Often and much to surprise there are many remote places are connected to WiFi – kind of destroying the idea of being off-grid in the first place. But, fortunately I might add, there are still places on planet earth where WiFi is non-exisitent or spotty.
Then there begs the question, what do you do if your find yourself standing in places like, at the edge of the Cave of Swallows, for example. You might end up cursing in the Mexican jungle if you can’t live-stream the event or make an immediate post on your social feeds. Who will ever believe you were there! Get me WiFi gosh darn it!
A new product on the market offers the hope of help keeping you connected during your adventurous days and while on the go. It’s called the Solis X WiFi Smartspot. The Solis X was developed by Skyroam, a global WiFi company. The device is small, portable, and quite cute actually, making it an extra convenient travel buddy for those of us who like to pack light and travel fast and remote. In fact, it’s so small that it slips into a pocket without a struggle.
The all-in-one device is nifty with plenty of other features in addition to the global WiFi capability: the Solis X also functions as a remote camera, power bank, and smart assistant. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about tugging along an extra battery bank with which to charge your phone, keeping your luggage streamlined and giving your back and mind a break.
