Bug spray, flashlight, and bedspreads
Miscellaneous: Good to carry bug sprays, and flash lights with spare cells.
Mobile phone coverage is bad in certain areas. So don't rely on GPRS or 3G to stay in touch. However, there are a number of internet browsing places.
You may have to carry your own bedsheets/bedspreads if you are gonna bunk in one of the cheaper huts, especially during off-peak season. The bedspread they provided was pretty dirty. Or you can pick up bedspreads for about INR 150 to 200 in one of the shops in Hampi.
