Mine:
  • Blackbox C20 noise cancelling headphones
  • Kindle Keyboard - loaded with books
  • iPad - loaded with movies & games
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 - with foreign SIM (depending on where I am going), movies & music
  • Canon S95 camera
  • iPad cord, USB cord, international camera battery charger, multi-country USB power charger
  • u-shaped pillow
  • 100ml toiletries, medicines
  • change of undies & spare top (been caught out before when luggage has gone missing)
  • saline nasal spray - never had a post-trip cold after I started using this in-flight
  • Flyhidrate - I love this for long-haul flights. It tastes foul but really does live up to its claims.
This all fits nicely into a personal bag-sized Tom Binh bag. Anything else goes into my carry-on bag, or checked suitcase if I am away for some time.

Ah yes, I forgot the toiletries and medicines.

Sleeping pills, immodium, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, electric shaver and lip balm.

On my last US trip I took with me
- Motorola Xoom loaded up with tons of TV shows, both on the internal 32GB and 16GB microSD
- Galaxy Nexus (with TMO SIM card when I arrived)
- Nexus S (with my 2D SIM card)
- One micro USB charger for both phones
- Vaas battery pack
- some decent Sennheiser headphones which I lost somewhere between San Francisco and Orlando :-(
- Sony NEX-F3 camera

and of course the usual toiletries and clothes.

Ended up watching movies on the plane didn't get to watch many shows on the tablet.

The GN with TMO SIM was a godsend for Internet access since for $3/day I had unlimited Internet and tethered my Xoom all the time.

Surprised that there aren't more votes for ebook readers. My Kindle, loaded with a selection of reading, is an absolute must for travel.

Backpack and Daypack (7 years old now so should see if there are any Geek models available)
Phone (currently Galaxy s III) Music/podcasts/airnz App/City Guides/Camera etc
Noise Canceling Headphones PXC450 Great on the plane (plus 4x AAA batteries) 
Laptop
Proper Camera Finepix S4000 

Prefer Paper versions of travel guides like Lonely Planet etc but have got some digital city guides.

Have taken the Linksys SPA2102 in the past and a basic phone for phoning home and to countries covered by the plan (bridge the connection from your laptop if only wireless is available) but now usually just use the APP on the GSIII

Thats all I can think of without digging in my travel bag.

That is a nice gadget to take along. I have been surprised by how nice it actually is to read on the iPad, but still have lust for a Kindle, although I have heard varying bad/good reviews of the Kindle Paperwhite, which I understand is the current and most intersting model at the moment?

Going soon to USA with family for two weeks. Apart from the usual case of clothes and boring stuff, tech gear as follows.
Surface Pro tablet. For keeping in touch with business. Looking at the photos and video taken each day. Samsung Ativ-S Windows phone. Mainly to listen to my music in iTunes.
Sat nav for rental car
Nikon 5100 reflex for photos
Sony RX100 for photos also, but mainly video.
Windscreen sucker mount for camera.
USB card reader
LED torch
All the relevant chargers and NZ to USA power adaptor plugs.
Will have to slum with ear buds till arrival in states were I will upgrade to Bose Quiet Comfort 3 headphones at 2/3rds NZ price.
Son and daughter will most probably take their Mac Books and iPhones as well. Wife just a camera.
Hopefully that should be enough to get us through the trip ok!
