Planning on taking a vacation in Japan? We’ve got a story for you! Nicole is going to take her Acer W510 Windows 8 tablet for blogging and the Padfone 2 with Docking Station and try to last as long as possible with out charging.

No Charge Challenge: Travelling Japan with a Padfone 2 & Windows 8 Tablet

Nicole has uncovered a variety of offline apps to help her avoid roaming charges and save on battery life that are specific to travelling in Japan. Find out how she’s set up her devices for her trip to Laka Hamana in Central Japan.

Full Disclosure: I received an Acer Iconia W510 Tablet for free from Intel as part of joining the tablet crew. I am free to write whatever I want and all opinions are my own.

    Enjoy Sakura season in Japan!! Good luck with the 3 day no-charge trip. I’d never do it, either AC chargers, external battery backs/chargers or solar chargers depending on how hard-core you need to charge in the middle or nowhere.

    I remember you buying the Padfone 1. Did you privately get the 2nd one too or is that sponsored like the W510? Also curious cause in your review on the first Padfone you said it didn’t quite make it into your daily routine…
