Best travel computer:

iPad Pro 10.5 256GB + LTE with keyboard cover and Apple Pencil:

Bonus: Add a T-Mobile international sim card for $10 a month - 5GB roll over data a month with free international roaming. Never be without a working computer, no need to chase down wifi. Combined with killer battery life, ability to sign/send documents, hand written notes, and side by side multi tasking. There are few tasks that leave me wishing I had a normal computer/laptop when traveling. Factor in it's size, weight, small cable / charger (same as for phone) and it becomes a no brainier. For those who need to present the Lightening/HDMI cable works brilliantly. 

Bonus: Combine this with a short 1ft Anker Powerline Micro USB cable and Anker High Power Auto Charger for a winning combination

Best iPhone X Case:

PITAKA Carbon Fiber (with rubberized coating) case. Includes embedded magnetic plate for above mount. 

Best Battery Pack:

Aukey 20,000mAh Pack with 3 outputs (USB A) and 3 inputs (Micro, Lightning, USB-C)

Best Chargers:
I usually take one of each - The mini charger will do 2.4 amps (I have tested) of total power, this is actually more than the 10w iPad charger. These are almost as small as the included Apple iPhone charger. With international travel it isn't uncommon to only have one good outlet to use to setup a charging station, so I keep the big charger (iPad, iPhone, Battery pack, iWatch) but usually try to weasel one of these guys in near the bed with a long (7ft) iPhone cable. 

My current electronic travel kit:

Inside of a BAGSMART Travel Universal Cable Organizer Electronics Accessories
1 x Anker PowerLine Micro USB 3ft
1 x Anker PowerLine Lightning Cable - MFi Certified 1ft (usually used on plane or in backpack with battery pack)
1 x 1 M iWatch Cable
2 x British Style Plug Adapters (in universal international sockets, these usually stay plugged in best)
3 x random others - usually used as risers out of deep surge bar sockets.
