KnowRoaming Is Ideal for Connected Globetrotters

When we first “met” KnowRoaming, a service committed to making global connectivity simple and inexpensive; they offered a sticker that one would place on a standard SIM card to connect when traveling. It always made me a bit uneasy. Since then, the company has greatly expanded their offerings and, when we travel this summer, we’ll be relying on them!



eBags TLS Hybrid Carry-On Is Great Travel Luggage

If you are traveling for the holidays, and want to breeze through the airport with ease, look no further than eBags TLS Hybrid Spinner Carry-On. We had the opportunity to check the bag out, and it’s quickly become my essential carry-on bag.



Clumsy People Need This Carry-on Closet

Solgaard is a company that made a name for itself with its LifePack solar-powered and anti-theft backpack. The backpack was so successful in winning over people’s hearts, that it super seeded their Kickstarter goals by over $600k. Now the company is innovating in the luggage space, but perhaps not in the way you’d expect.



Royal Caribbean Is Using Tech to Make the Cruising Experience Even Lazier

When you think of cruise ships, the first thing that comes to mind is probably not technology innovations. But that’s the furthest from the truth over at Royal Caribbean. Yesterday in New York, the company was busy showing off a slew of new tech innovations that will radically change the experience for passengers and crew members on board their ships.

Nomad Battery Cable is a Smart Solution to Poor Smartphone Battery Life

It is rare that I refer to tech as “brilliantly innovative.” It is even rarer when the “brilliantly innovative” tech is nothing more than an iPhone charging cable. Then again, the Nomad Battery Cable isn’t just any old iPhone charging cable. It is tough, works well and, as the name suggests, it has a battery built right into the cable.




Lander Carry System: Everything You Need for Anywhere You Might Go

I reviewed the Lander TIMP 20 a while back, and it was one of the best I’ve ever used; sleek, water-resistant, incredibly light, and durable! Although Lander makes other accessories, I can verify that their backpack game is strong; that’s why I am excited about the new Lander Carry System, which is almost fully funded on Kickstarter.


MyCharge AdventureUltra Keeps Gear Going on the Go

One of the things I love about my new MacBook Pro is the fact that it uses a USB-C charging port. That means I can now charge my laptop on the go along with my iPhone and Table. The $129.99 myCharge AdventureUltra makes that possible, but it goes one step further by adding a built-in AC power port.


TripIt Is Now Your Airport Sidekick

TripIt has been my go-to app for travel, hands down. I track all of my flights instantly thanks to the Pro features, but when I’m in the airport, I’ve always thought the app could be more useful. Luckily the company thought this as well, and they’ve released an update that its users will enjoy.

The BRAVEN BRV-BLADE Bluetooth Speaker Lets Your Music Slice Through the Quiet

I recently reviewed the BRAVEN Stryde 360 Bluetooth Speaker. (Read the review.) It is under $100, is waterproof, and delivers good sound regardless of where you go. If, however, you want big sound that gets even bigger thanks to “BRAVEN Boost,” you will want to check out the BRAVEN BRV-BLADE. It looks serious and delivers sound in keeping with appearances.
