The Jawbone Era is the best, clearest, most comfortable, and easiest to use Bluetooth headset I've used -- and it only costs $99.
Call clarity is taken care of by the military-grade NoiseAssassin 3.0 noise-cancellation and wind reduction technology. The built-in 10mm wideband speaker allows you to listen privately to music, podcasts, YouTube videos, sports, phone calls, Skype calls, and more, all in full-spectrum, high-definition quality sound.
To top all that off, the Jawbone Era supports a whole range of downloadable apps and voices.

One of the perils of talking electronics outside of the safety and comfort of the home or office is that there's a chance that it will get wet. This is where my trusty Aquapac comes in. I can throw my iPad in there -- along with the iPhone if it's really wet -- and it's safe. You can also safely use your iPad in the pool, on a boat, or even in the bath!
$60 is a small price to pay to keep a tablet safe.

If you spend a lot of time in your car -- like I do -- you need a way to keep your portable devices charged up while you're on the move. While chargers for smartphones such as the iPhone are plentiful, good chargers that output the 2.1A needed by tablets such as the iPad are harder to find.
Currently I'm using a dual USB-port Just Mobile Highway Pro that keeps my iPhone and iPad charged up. It's a little pricey at $40, but it's one of the most reliable charger I've come across so far.
