Tenergy TN299 Hybrid NiMH, NiCd, Li-ion, LiFePO4 Batteries Universal Charger

Tenergy TN299 Hybrid NiMH, NiCd, Li-ion, LiFePO4 Batteries Universal Charger for AA, AAA, C, D, 9V, 18650, 14500, 10440 With 4 Independent Charging Slots and LCD Display

This charger is so versatile. It can charge every type of rechargeable battery I own and some that I don’t, like LiFePO4 and 9V batteries. We don’t even have to charge in pairs. When it’s done, the light indicator shuts off. Totally cool.

The only down side is like many battery chargers, it will not charge an NiMH battery that is too drained. My other battery charger is just like that. I have to throw those nearly dead batteries into a third USB charger I own to give them a little boost. The USB charger is too weak to complete the job, so it’s back to Tenergy I go for a full charge.

Ocban Universal Travel Adapter

Ocban Universal Travel Wall Adapter with 2 USB Ports & Surge Protector

I took this travel adapter with me from the USA to London and used it to charge all my small electronic devices and two laptops. I plugged in up to three devices at once (2 USB + 1 outlet). What a lifesaver that was. I can verify that it works with USA and UK outlets, but it also has configurations to fit outlets from many other parts of the world. Everything is self-contained so I don’t have to worry about losing any pieces. It’s a truly ingenious device.

LightFamily Inflatable Travel Pillow

LightFamily Inflatable Travel Pillow

If you’ve ever wanted to slump your head over your tray table in the cabin of an airplane, this LightFamily travel pillow will do the trick. Yes, I actually used this; and yes, this actually works. Just remember to air it out before your trip to keep the plastic odors from overwhelming your senses.

AMKOV AMK6000S Action Camera

AMKOV AMK6000S 1080P WIFI Sports Action Camera True Full HD  Waterproof DV Camcorder 12MP

The AMKOV action cam not only comes with all the standard mounting accessories, it includes a remote control that works right out of the box–no pairing needed. Yes, it comes with a waterproof case, but get this . . . we also get a soft-sided case with a snap-on belt clip and lens cap besides. That setup is to die for. Love, love, love the lens cap. So simple, so necessary, yet you’ll not find that in any other kit (at least I haven’t). Big screen, great picture. I’m keeping this one.

Tenergy Syma X20

Tenergy Syma X20 Pocket Headless Quadcopter RC Drone with Altitude Holding

One of the nicest things about this Syma drone is how well it holds its altitude. Once I get it however high I need it, that’s one less thing to think about. It also has auto takeoff and landing, which has saved me when I needed it to come down quickly.

The drone charges with a micro USB cable (included), but you’ll need four AAA batteries for the remote.

Bistar Galaxy 3D Animal Travel Backpack

Bistar Galaxy 3D Animal Travel Backpack, Squirrel

This backpack comes with a zipper that can’t be missed. It’s HUGE. So’s the storage. It holds all my daughter’s books, her PE clothes, water bottles, and more. My favorite features? The three zippered pockets on the back, more hidden for security. The upper back pocket extends all the way down to the bottom. My whole forearm could fit inside. Nice backpack.
