The holidays are coming up which means you could possibly be traveling, buying gifts, or doing a little bit (or a lot!) of both. Here’s a list of some of the popular portable travel accessories that you or someone you know may be interested in this season.
inMotion IM500 Portable Audio System
First on the list is the rather affordable portable audio system. Everybody seems to have an iPod these days which means a portable audio system would be a practical accessory to have. Size wise, it’s small measuring 5 inches high, 8.5 inches wide, and about 0.65 inches thick. It is designed for an iPod nano and will also charge the nano at the same time. While it isn’t the best of sound quality, it does the trick when you’re not wanting to listen to your tunes through headphones.
SuperTooth II BlueAnt Wireless
The SuperTooth II BlueAnt Wireless is a hands-free wireless speakerphone that will work with any Bluetooth enabled phone. This is a great alternative to using the Bluetooth ear piece. It mounts to your sun visor, and can switch between your cars really easily. With 20 hours of talk time, and 800 hours of standby time, it will last you quite a while. It uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery.
Media Buddy Portable Digital Picture Storage
I usually travel with my laptop which makes it easy to transfer my pictures to my computer to clear up room on my camera. If you don’t have a laptop, an alternative is the Digital Foci Media Buddy Portable Digital Picture Storage. There are all different storage amounts available such as 40GB and 80GB. It’s a simple process that involves inserting the memory card from your camera into the Media Buddy which will then download the images to its’ hard drive. When you get home, you just connect the MediaBuddy to your computer to get your saved pictures. It also doubles as an external hard drive.
Price $189.00 (80GB)
The Inka Pen
Also known as the “write anywhere pen, or an “all-weather” pen, the Inka pen is designed to work in any type of environment you can think of. This includes extreme heat as well as underwater, although I don’t know what you’d be writing on underwater! Water-proof paper? Planning on taking a trip to space? It will also work in zero gravity. It easily converts from a compact size small pen, to a full-sized pen which has replaceable pressurized ink cartridges available for purchase in case you run out! It’s made from an aerospace-grade titanium as well as carbon fiber.
M500 Portable Projector
If you travel for business and frequently give presentations, the M500 Portable Projector is an awesome thing to travel with. It weighs only 2.5 pounds which would allow you to take it just about anywhere! The lamp life is also pretty amazing at 4,000 to 5,000 hours. I could think of lots of uses whether it’s for business, in the classroom, or even at home. While it’s not extremely affordable, if you’re giving a lot of presentations, it would be worth it! This is one thing I’d love to put on my list!
