If you have the chance to attend the Winter Olympic Games, you are in luck. With the opportunity to witness legendary athletes compete in spectacular events, you don’t want to miss a second.
The key is coming prepared. There are some essentials for the Winter Olympics that are often forgotten while packing.
Pack Your Sunglasses
Sunglasses aren't only for Summer.
Just because it isn't warm doesn't mean you shouldn't wear sunglasses. Winter snow reflection can do plenty of damage to your eyes.
Sun in the winter can actually do far much more damage due to the sun being at a different angle and also being lower in the sky.
A lack of sunglasses can cause snow blindness, basically a sunburn of the eyes. The problem with snow is up to 85% of sun's UV rays are reflected, according to the Vision Council of America.
Your cornea could be damaged and leave you not seeing correctly for a full week━half of the Olympics games. And in the long-term, snow blindness can leave you with more severe damage.
Sunglasses are one of the essentials for the Winter Olympics in South Korea with blue skies and plenty of snow forecasted.
Bring An Adapter
If you are traveling from the UK or the US, you will not be able to charge anything that you bring with you unless you have an adapter.
Zendure Passport Global Travel Adapter is like a passport for your devices. It allows your devices to work anywhere. It supports all major plugs in the world meaning that if you are going to South Korea from the US through the UK, you will be able to charge all of your devices in each place with just this one adapter. It even has four USB ports, so you can charge up to five devices at a time.
Zendure Passport is the world's first global travel adapter that has a built-in auto-resetting Fuse. The auto-resetting fuse allows Passport to recover from overloads without service or replacement. Forget running to the store and trying to replace the blow fuse━never again with Passport!
Take A Portable Charger
At a spectacular event like the Winter Olympics, you will surely want to take some pictures and videos. Smartphone batteries have proved to be unreliable for holding a charge for long periods of time.If you want to record and take pictures, you will need a portable charger. More importantly, it is wise to keep your phone charge for emergencies when in a foreign country. You might need to use Google Maps to get home or perhaps you want to feel safe knowing you can call somebody if needed.
Our new A3TC USB-C power bank is perfect for keeping your phone charged and can fit in your pocket. The 10,000 mAh portable charger can charge most phones 3-4 times, and it can survive anything, even getting run over by a Sedan.
The Zendure portable charger is future-proof with a USB-C output and input port that is compatible with new laptops. And if needed, a standard USB port is present too.
Don’t Forget Your Winter Olympics Essentials
Bring these essentials that are often forgotten when traveling to an event like the Olympics. Sunglasses will keep your eyes safe. Keeping your devices charged with a travel adapter and a portable charger will keep you safe. Plus, you won’t miss a single photo opportunity.
