Anker is one of those brands that, even if you don’t think they make it, I can almost guarantee that they do. So when I heard that they’d be at CES this year with a host of never before seen products, my interest was already piqued. So exactly what does the brand have in store for 2021? Read on!
Between the pandemic and the election, it’s been an insane year. Now that we have several vaccines on the way and the election results have been declared, we can all look forward to seeing what Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are coming. We’ve put together a few of our favorite deals from some brands you know — and a few you should consider — that you can shop, all from the safety of your home!
I reviewed the BlendJet some months ago; the small, battery-operated blender does exactly what it promises and can go anywhere. Paired with the company’s JetPacks, you can have a smoothy anywhere. Now the company has released an updated version. BlendJet 2 is larger, quieter, has more power, has measurement markers built-in, and is still just as portable.
A few years ago, Judie and I were at CES, and she turned me on to having a smoothie for breakfast. Most days since that time, I’ve done just that. Now, thanks to the BlendJet and JetPacks, I can have a delicious smoothy anywhere. With the company’s overpriced but delicious JetPacks, the process is even easier!
I have owned several travel tripods that were decent for quick shots, but serviceable at best. Something usually broke under minimal use after a short time, usually a knob, lever, or handle. Peak Design’s Travel Tripod is the tripod I never knew I was looking for; simply put, it is awesome.
Corkcicle is easily one of the best brands for carrying your liquids, regardless if they are hot or cold. The company has announced a few special edition colors for their popular non-slip containers and they guarantee to impress.
A few years ago, Raina convinced me to take a cruise. I’ve never had any interest in such a vacation, but, much to my surprise, I enjoyed it. Since then we’ve taken several additional cruises. The only problem? I get seasick. Thankfully, for our last cruise, I had the opportunity to try the Reliefband 2.0. Let’s take a look.
We reviewed Nomad’s leather wallet with Tile tracking some time ago. (Read our review.) Now they have announced their new Nomad Traditional Passport Wallet with Tile Tracking. Made with the same Horween leather we’ve seen in many of Nomad’s other products; its thoughtful design looks great, while the built-in Tile tracker means you’ll keep track of your valuable travel documents.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to try out the Jackery Explorer 500 Portable Power Station. With a solar generator available at an additional cost, the Explorer 500 should come in very handy during power outages or when camping.
Sometimes it’s the little things that make life easier, and I suspect that the Vago Portable Compressor might be just such an item. If you are trying to pack or store clothing and you want to be as space-efficient as possible, the Vago can help make that happen.
Anker Innovations, one of our favorite gadget manufacturers has been working diligently to release new chargers and accessories for the new lineup of iPhones. Newly released are the PowerPort III Nano, PowerPort Atom III Slim, PowerPort III Duo, PowerCore 10000 PD Redux, PowerPort PD-2, USB-C to lightning cables, and the PowerWave+ wireless charging pad.

Designed to protect your personal items when you’re at the beach or by the pool, beachsafe is a product that my mother showed interest in for her travels. Beachsafe sent me one to review, and for her most recent tropical trip, my mother took it along, and she had nothing but positive things to say about it.
Where do you stow all of your electronic accessories when you travel? If you’ve been guilty of tossing your charging cables, USB dongles, USB hubs, and other “stuff” into the bottom of your backpack or a pocket in your suitcase (as I have), then you’ll appreciate the organization and protection the Oneadaptr Evri Accessories Pouch will give your gear.
When we’re at the beach house during the summer, one thing we often have to worry about is air for our bike tires. But a lot of air pumps out there are clunky and outright cumbersome to deal with. However, the Viaggio Travel Pump by Silca is a stylish way of pumping up everything from pool toys, basketballs, and yes — even those bike tires.
Traveling abroad could already be a bit daunting, and if you’re not familiar with your surroundings, and want to find out very important details without looking completely like a tourist, TripIt’s latest update is here to help.
If you easily obsess about the organization of your luggage when traveling, or find yourself needing just a bit more space for an extra pair of clothes, TravelPro’s Crew VersaPack might be worth checking out.
“What’s in those?” My wife Raina asked me when two large boxes arrived at the house. “Oh, that’s review samples of Speck’s new luggage.” “Speck?” she asked, looking at me strangely, “Don’t they make iPhone cases?” “They make some of the best and now… Speck makes luggage.” So let’s check it out.
It seems like my search for the perfect everyday bag is never-ending. I’m pretty particular on what I want from a bag, and over the past month I’ve been using Black Ember’s Citadel Minimal Backpack, and it’s checked quite a few boxes of things that I desire from my bag with a few extras that I was not expecting.
The last time I flew to Israel, I had a choice. I could enjoy the quiet provided by my wireless noise-canceling headphones, or I could use United’s crappy wired earphones and watch the onboard entertainment. The new RHA Wireless Flight Adapter makes that choice a thing of the past by letting you cut the cord to your airline entertainment system.
We’ve covered the original Skyroam, a great way of connecting on the go regardless if you are a digital nomad or just someone who is traveling and needs to overcome the limitations of traveling data packages that your carrier might provide. The company sent me over their latest innovation, the Skyroam Solis X, which is proving to be even better than I expected.
It’s getting warm outside which can only mean it’s time to start traveling, and what better way to travel in style than with Away? We received their Aluminum Bigger Carry-On, and it’s a beauty.
