This clever little gadget can then be easily slipped inside your suitcase, hand luggage, wallet, laptop case, and just about anything else you might want to keep an eye on.

Through the app you can ring this tiny gadget to emit a shrill beep that cuts through most sounds.

GEAR4 Buckingham iPad case

Long flights can be broken up nicely with a good book, a few films, and your favourite music, which makes the Apple iPad the perfect companion.

The Buckingham iPad case by trusted impact protection brand GEAR4 is the only case for the job.

Aesthetically, this case looks sleek and professional which makes it perfect for any occasion. Add to that D30 impact technology that is so advanced that even the U.S military trusts it and you can bet your passport and ticket home that it will survive any clumsy fumbles.

Charging gadgets on the move is one thing, but it’s always nice to have a reliable base from which to recharge everything – even your portable battery pack will need some juice at some point.
