Road trip survival with Powerbag, Third Rail, Fitbit, and TripIt

Road trip survival with Powerbag, Third Rail, Fitbit, and TripIt

Summary: I travel quite a bit and after a couple of recent trips, one to CES in Vegas and another for a very successful tug refloating in California, I thought it would be worth sharing with you some of my favorite gear that stood out among the crowd. You can check out photos of a Powerbag pack, Third Rail iPhone battery pack, Fitbit fitness tracking device, and TripIt travel software in this gallery.

  • Reminds me of a battery from the 90ies...

    Anyone else that thinks this (ThirdRail) battery looks a lot like the cell phone batteries from the 1990ies?

    Not a bad idea, lets just hope that they are a commercial success - as there is not other way to ensure that that this solution is "future proof".
