    Most of us aren't likely to ever find ourselves trekking through the Australian Outback, or on expedition through the forests of the Congo. But if you do happen to be a globetrotting rugged adventurer, yes, there is an iPhone accessory for that.


    An iPhone case like no other, Thuraya's SatSleeve Case connects with Thuraya's satellite network to ensure that you'll be able to make a call, even when in very remote locations. Their network covers 140 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, the middle East and Australia. That's a pretty handy survival tool should you find yourself stuck in a rough spot without reception.


    The SatSleeve is also an iPhone external battery case, which means it'll extend your iPhone's battery life so you'll have enough power to place a call if you need to.


    And even if your iPhone isn't working, the case itself is equipped with a microphone and speaker, as well as an emergency call button – you program an emergency phone number into it beforehand – so you're still not out of reach even in the stickiest situations.


    The case has obvious applications for military personnel, as well as corporate workers based in remote locations. But it's also probably one of the best iPhone accessories we've seen yet for adventurers and outdoorsy types. With the Sat Sleeve, Thuraya has provided rugged globetrotters with an iPhone case in keeping with their motto of "stay close." Just try not to think of the roaming charges...

  • the best gadgets for traveling


    Everything has become easier since smartphones, and that goes for traveling too. With easy access to maps, GPS, flight and train schedules, our cell phones, tablets and laptops are now an essential part of globetrotting. But almost as essential are certain mobile accessories that help make sure our wireless devices are always working in top order. The following are Pure Mobile's picks for the 5 best gadgets for travel – don't leave home without them!


    1. Backup power


    Your phone and tablet are pretty useless if they run out of juice. And not every country has the same type of electrical outlet, so even if you bring your phone charger, you may find yourself out of luck. Be on the safe side and travel with a backup battery pack. Backup power is also great if you're out and about sightseeing and away from an outlet for any period of time.


    We recommend Scosche's goBAT II, a high capacity battery backup for iPhone and iPad, or Dexim's BluePack Battery, which works for nearly all devices, from iPhone to Android and BlackBerry.


    2. A sturdy laptop bag


    If you do decide to bring your laptop or notebook, it simply won't do to just cram it into your travel pack. Instead, invest in a good case or travel bag designed to fit your laptop securely, with extra room for passport, souvenirs and whatever else you may need.


    For an over-the-shoulder style, we like Targus' Classic Notebook Case for sturdiness and organization. And for backpacks, Incase's Terra Campus pack offers padded protection for both your MacBook Pro and iPad, with tons of extra storage.

    3. A good multipurpose cable


    Even with a battery pack, you're going to need a good cable for charging and syncing. We like Dexim's Green Cable Universal, which, as the name suggests works for most if not all devices. Featuring EL technology which reduces power consumption, it not only allows your device to charge really quickly, but also glows while it's charging, to let you know when your battery is full. Neat-o!


    4. A wallet phone or tablet case


    Especially when traveling, it's nice to have all your essentials – phone, money, and cards – all in one spot. That's easy with a wallet or folio-style phone case. Griffin's Midtown Wallet is the perfect pick for the iPhone 5, with slots for cards and cash, and their Elan Passport does the same for your iPad 2.

    5. Compact earbuds


    If you've ever been on an 8-hour flight with an unhappy baby, you'll understand the need for a good set of headphones while traveling. Earbuds are more compact, and easier to cary around, so make sure you've got a good pair that can drown out unwanted noise, like Beats by Dre's urBeats, which are small and lightweight but also have a super-tough metal housing.


    Bon voyage!
