Mactrem Travel Tripod

Mactrem PT55 Travel Camera Tripod Lightweight Aluminum

This little tripod is lightweight, yet is sturdy as they come. The legs lock solid so that I’m never worried about collapse or tipping over. Speaking of features: It has a built-in level bubble, quick release plate, foam grips, and weight hook. Everything on this tripod works so smoothly. That goes for the pan and tilt. Unlike some other tripods, this one glides in any direction, at any angle–until I lock it, of course. When I’m done, I pack it away in the rugged carry bag. The Mactrem tripod offers incredible value for its price. I highly recommend it.

Altec Lansing MZX300-BLU Bluetooth Headphones

Altec Lansing MZX300-BLU Bluetooth Headphones Wireless Over Ear, Blue

These Bluetooth headphones can also be used with an aux cable (included), if you don’t want to bother with Bluetooth. They are well-padded and very comfortable. Nice sound output, too. My son said he can hear the distance between the speaker and his ear, but really, only and audiophile would ever notice. I think it’s great and I love the fullness of the sound.

iClever BoostCel Solar Charger with Battery

iClever BoostCel 12W Portable Solar Charger with 8000mah External Battery

Most solar chargers need to be connected to a battery. This solar charger comes with the battery inside. It’s so seemless, I couldn’t even tell.

The case is beautiful compared to any other solar charger I’ve ever owned. It includes a magnetic closure and an elastic band for hanging on trees. It’s a gorgeous power bank. I love it.

KingYou Bluetooth Earphones

KingYou Bluetooth Wireless HD Stereo In-Ear Earphones

Buddy likes these Bluetooth earphones because they don’t tie him down to his phone. The magnetic buds connect so he can wear them around his neck when he’s not using them–a rare site, indeed. With controls within easy reach, he doesn’t even have to take them off for phone calls (and adjusting the music is so much easier).

iClever BoostCell Eco 15000mAh External Battery

iClever BoostCell Eco 15000mAh External Battery with 4.8A Dual USB Output and 2A Dual Input, SmartID Technology

I can use this power bank to charge up to two devices at once. And at 15000 mAh, I can charge them over and over and over. You know they mean 15000 when you feel the weight. Just look at that thickness. For anyone who doesn’t understand what I’m saying, a power bank with this much juice should feel heavy and have good size. If it’s small, lightweight, and thin, you’re not getting what you’re paying for.

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.
