Best travel gadgets at IFA 2014

100,000 people got their hands on almost as many travel gadgets at IFA 2014. TravGear picks out the best 

Miss IFAWhat makes a great travel product? A small size and portability, for sure, but most of all a product that wants to find a place in our luggage needs to have one (or preferably two) killer function that no journey can be without. Wearables and mainstream smartphone launches dominated IFA 2014, but we found some great travel gear. Here’s our top five from Berlin:

1. Toshiba Canvio AeroMobile wireless storage device

Automatic, portable back-up for SD Cards from cameras plus wireless streaming for all the family
