One of the things that I used do when packing to go overseas was to make sure that I had my collection of plug adapters and a bulky international power strip ready to go; these days I just make sure that I have the Oneadaptr Twist+ World Adapter DUO.
We recently reviewed a new lens system from Olloclip. That was not the only new product Olloclip rolled out. In this review we will take a look at two more of them — the Olloclip Active Lens Set for iPhone 7 and 7 PLUS and Olloclip Pivot. Both take iPhone-ography to a new level of awesome.
Rounding out our series of Olloclip reviews at this time is the Olloclip Pivot. This $49.99 accessory is ideal for anyone looking to use do serious iPhone-ography. It’s a simple way to not only add stability to your shot but, thanks to a single cold shoe on top, to also add an accessory such as a light or a microphone.
The Scosche BoomBouy Rockstar Pocket-Sized Speaker is a small speaker that clips to a backpack and goes wherever you go. In fact, “goes wherever you go” even includes a pool, river or lake if that is where your travels take you. The small speaker is part of Scosche’s Rockstar sub-brand, but a quick look at it will make that fact clear.
We’ve seen and reviewed a goodly number of external batteries; many are increasingly fancy and complex. The Scosche Rockstar GoBat 10K Portable Battery falls on the simpler side of things… So long as you ignore that very obvious branding. And if you can get past the branding, or you like it, then you may find this a good option.
I travel out of the country a minimum of three times per year, and in the past, I have had to find other options than AT&T (my carrier) because using their international plan just didn’t make financial sense. The new AT&T International Day Pass changes all of that.
OK guys, I’m going to be talking about a bag company named NutSac, so let’s get all the jokes out of your system. Good? Good. The NutSac Satchel is a high-quality bag made with Top Grain leather and waxed canvas and can hold a tablet up to 9.7” as well as accessories. You can grab your own NutSac for $129.
Scandinavian furniture has clean lines and, too often, appear to sacrifice comfort in favor of minimalism and style. Sit in such furniture and… you will be pleasantly surprised. The Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear headphones reflect this same Scandinavian design language. The have clean lines and, like the furniture, appear to sacrifice comfort in favor of minimalism.
If you live in a major city, you know that tourists are easy to spot. There’s something about their clothes, their behavior, the way they try to take in the sights and read the map on their phones all at once, that makes them stand out in a crowd. Unfortunately, there are people out there who try to take advantage…
If you haven’t been completely scared away by cruise ships in recent years, Carnival, the world’s largest leisure travel company (and a personal favorite) with ten global cruise line brands announced that they are dipping their hands into the gadget market with the world’s first interactive guess experience platform-the Ocean Medallion.
Since we now have a Schlage Smart Lock on the front door I often simply carry my car fob with me when I go out. Thing is, the car fob is so small that I often misplace it. That’s where the Chipolo Plus comes in.

It is now November, and it’s been about 10 months from when I started receiving regular shipments from Harry’s. Since I started, not only has the price gone down, but the blades and the handles have had an update, and Harry’s has made the first push into brick and mortar stores, namely Target.
I came across a new (to me) product supplier recently when a couple of their e-mails landed in the suggestion box here at Gear Diary. Based in San Francisco, Great Useful Stuff is a self-described boutique-style online retailer, offering a range of products from children’s items to tech to travel, including this Travel Media Pouch.
If you are a frequent traveler, you know that roaming can get to be pretty pricey. And a popular cellular data roaming company by the name of KnowRoaming wants to look out for you with their new hotspot!
If you travel a lot your phone is your friend. It keeps track of your flight, your hotel, and more but it’s either via e-mail or an app like Google Keep or something else. Well, Google has brought together everything in one beautiful app called Google Trips!
One of the many things Judie and I share in common is our love of travel. And, thanks to our work on Gear Diary and each sharing our lives with amazing travel partners, we do more of it than ever. We love our homes in Texas and New Jersey respectively, but we also know It’s Good Not to Be Home.
The new MacBook comes with a 29W power cube that serves its purpose well enough, but there are no bells and whistles like, oh, say, an extra USB charging port or a way to wrap the long USB Type-C power cord neatly. With that in mind, the RAVPower 36W Dual Port Type-C/USB Wall Charger comes awfully close to perfect.
After a week in Israel, I met Raina and we set out on a road trip to Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and now Bryce and Zion National Parks. For cameras, Raina brought her iPhone 6 while I brought my iPhone 6S and the OnePlus 3 I am currently reviewing. Do we regret not bringing dedicated cameras? Not. At. All.
Modern summer travel with the kids in this high-tech era just got better thanks to the new line of Tinyphones from JVC. They come in an earbud or on-ear style and feature a volume limiter to prevent hearing damage. JVC Tinyphones allows adults to enjoy the drive time too by not having to listen to those devices.
I finally broke down and bought a MacBook after months of hard-sell from Helena. Being able to carry a full Mac OS X computer that weighs so much less than my 13″ MacBook Pro has been liberating; figuring out how to charge my travel laptop and other devices at the same time has been a bit more of a challenge.
