...a compact package that ticks most of the right boxes, though there is room for improvement.
The Travelair AC isn't short on meaningful usage scenarios and works well as a simple remedy to everyday computing headaches.
Looking to share the photos you've taken on an SD card? Want to retrieve content from your iPhone without the hassle of iTunes? Or do you simply want to store numerous episodes of Peppa Pig for the kids to watch via a tablet on a long-haul flight?
Travelair AC is up to the task and the integrated 3,000mAh battery ought to last a while between charges. We've been streaming music continuously from our review sample for the past five hours, and battery life is still at 48 per cent. Factor-in an affordable £60 fee and it's a compact package that ticks most of the right boxes, though there is room for improvement.
The use of an outdated USB 2.0 interface prevents the device from doubling as a worthwhile external storage drive, and if it's more space you're after, the 32GB capacity isn't particularly roomy by today's standards. SD-card expansion helps mitigate that concern to some extent, however it's the limited out-the-box capacity that ultimately prevents Travelair AC from being a prime candidate in this burgeoning field.
