Carry Your Gear Wrinkle-Free With The Skyroll Luggage Carrier
Traveling for business and pleasure evolved a lot in the past 10-15 years. I remember the days when crossing the ocean in a Trans-Atlantic flight was a big event. Now people go back and forth on almost daily bases.

If you’re in a such position that requires frequent traveling, you must already know how difficult it is to transport clothes and have them ready for wearing without any additional preparation (washing, ironing … etc). – also check the Conair Travel Mini Iron.

The Skyroll Wrinkle-free Luggage Carrier is an ingenious garment bag that allows you to carry two suits, shirts, ties, shoes and other personal gear and protects all your clothes from wrinkles and creases. Once your clothes are placed and properly arranged in the bag, the entire carriers rolls up around a hollow tube (which stores the rest of your gear). Rolling the clothes allows them to stay wrinkle and folds free.

What’s your favorite luggage carrier for short trips? Are you OK with clothing ironing while traveling, or you already have a such wrinkle-free carrier in your traveling arsenal? Let me know in the comments …

Give Your Luggage A Cool Look With Funny Suitcase Stickers

If you’re in the market for a cool travel suitcase, but don’t want to pay a premium price to stand apart from the pack, take a minute and check out these suitcase stickers – also check the Samsonite Scooter Luggage and the SuitSuit Washing Machine Case.

The suitcase stickers can be used with any type of bag/case, they stick to any material and will give your luggage carrier a cool look. There’s a word of caution from the seller though – “Some of these stickers may cause offense to airport and immigration staff. But you would have figured that out whilst enjoying those cavity searches.”
So, be wise and, if you decide to”dress” your suitcase into a “powder carrier”, a money bag, a stewardess or a pleasure collection, make sure you have the extra time to answer a couple of questions when you try to pass the border!!!

Micro-Phone - The Credit Card Sized Cell Phone In Your Wallet

By know, you should have noticed I am in love with wallet sized gear and gadgets. I find them amazing and, as you always have to carry a wallet, you can easily have them with you anytime – check out these cool findings – the Wallet Battery, Credit Card Sized USB Cable, the Carzor and the Cardsharp2 wallet knife.

We are used using our smartphones for 1,001 other activities than basic voice communications. From internet to movie watching, from playing MP3’s to GPS navigation … But, there are some times when we just need a plain, simple phone, which does not take much space in your pocket and can help you keep basic SMS and voice contact with friends, family and coworkers.

For those moments, and not only, take a look at the credit card sized Micro-Phone.
Just like the Phone Strap 2 Mini Cell Phone we featured a while ago, the Micro-Phone offers most of the basic functions of a cell phone – calls, SMS, tasks, calendar, calculator, contacts – all by kiping a minimalist form factor. Here are some of the Micro-Phone‘s features:

  • Operates in any GSM network (850/900/1800/1900 bands)
  • Operates with regular SIM cards (if you have a micro or nano SIM an adapter will be included in the package)
  • Slick design to fit in your wallet
  • 1.8″ LCD
  • Li-Io rechargeable battery (offers up to 21 days of standby)
  • Micro USB charging connector (this means you can use any of your existing chargers to power the Micro-Phone).
  • Locator function – allows you to track the user via an Smartphone app – eg: track your 8 years old son, your Alzheimer sick grand parent, or your wife when traveling at night.

The Micro-Phone is in project stage at Indiegogo with an estimate delivery for August 2013 and the minimum pledge of $49 will allow you to get it at an early bird price (regular pricing will turn around $89 US).

What’s your take on it? Do you see any advantages of owning a Micro-Phone (along with your regular smartphone)? Would you leave your “Precious” at home and take the Micro-Phone for a ride?

Cosmos Four Port Travel USB Charger

Many if not most of our day to day gadgets charge via USB ports. While this is amazing when you’re at home and you can grab any charger to charge your smartphone, it becomes a bit more complicated when traveling. “Should I take 1 charger with me? Should I take 2 or even 3 chargers?”. The short answer is: “Don’t take any of them”.

What you should take with you when traveling is a Multiple Port USB charger – this way you get the convenience pf charging all your devices at the same time without adding extra weight to your luggage.

The XTG Technology Cosmos 4 Port AC to USB Wall Charger is one of those devices that will save your (battery) life when traveling – it’s light weight, ultra compact, has possibility to use electric plugs specific to the country you’re visiting and charges up to 4 USB devices at 5V per port.
