Spring break is coming. For some, it means seeing families. For others, it means that an adventure beyond the campus is about to happen in a new city or even a different country.

Wherever you may be traveling for spring break, you make memories you’ll want to keep forever. This article will cover essentials you need on your spring break to make those memories last a lifetime.  

A Camera

Smartphones cameras are getting better, but they still can’t compared to mirrorless and DSLR cameras.

Sure, your new iPhone might be able to give you a background blur, but cameras still have the iPhone beat. You will want to bring a camera with you on your spring break adventures.

Smartphone cameras have had huge improvements in recent years, but a camera still has better resolution, zoom, and less noise.  It will be hard for a smartphone to surpass a proper camera in these areas.

If you are looking to take the most amazing looking pictures in terms of quality, have a camera with you. Sony A6000 is a great affordable camera that shoots incredible pictures.

A Power Bank

Your phone might not have the greatest camera, but the best memories don't always require the best quality. Nothing beats the convenience of a smartphone camera, until you run out of battery. Unfortunately, our smartphones are notorious for running out of battery fast.

Luckily, a power bank will help your phone battery last throughout the day on your spring break trip.  Don’t worry about missing a moment with your battery fully charged. You can even keep Snapchatting and posting pictures on Instagram as much as you please with a power bank.  

If you are looking enough power to last you the whole weekend and want to charge several devices at once, then our Zendure A8 QC is the perfect spring break companion. Enjoy quick charging capabilities and a massive amount of juice (26,800 mAh) when you bring this monster external battery along. With four charging ports, your friends will love it too!

If you don’t need quite as much power, our new A3TC USB-C  is the perfect choice for a weekend trip. This power bank has 10,000 mAh and a capability to charge your USB-C compatible laptop.

A Journal

Pictures are great, but pictures can't tell all the stories. They can't show your emotions, and they certainly don't describe everything that happened. It is said that a picture can paint a thousand words, but far more than a thousand words doesn't always capture all of the details.

A journal is is a fantastic way to preserve how you felt and what you were thinking on your spring break trip. You can read it for years to come and relive your favorite moments. Don’t forget this spring break essential when you are on your trip.

Storage

Don’t you hate when you see the “storage almost full” message? Even worse, it is heartbreaking to lose your phone or camera and lose all of your pictures.

Google Drive is great for storing pictures you take on your phone as an emergency backup. A portable hard drive such as the WD My Passport is a great choice when it comes to storage.

Your memory card will not last a full trip. Bring a portable hard drive or you will need to limit how many pictures you take.

Spring Break Essentials for Making Lasting Memories

This spring break you will be having the time of your life. But to make sure those memories last forever, bring your camera for amazing pictures and your extra storage. A power bank is required in order to keep your devices charged and ready to go. And a journal is needed as pictures aren't always enough.
