  • For those people venturing out into the trackless wastes, or just visiting areas where clean drinking water may not be available, the SteriPen Classic Water Purifier can help. This compact battery-powered device can kill practically all viruses and bacteria in drinking water.


  • The Duracell Instant USB Charger is a must-have for anyone needing an emergency smartphone recharge. The best part is that this device itself can charge from the USB port of a laptop.


  • If you need a lot of battery recharging power for long-haul flights, or simply won't be near available power outlets for extended periods, consider getting the iSound Portable Power Max battery pack. At 16,000mAh, it has the capability to fully recharge two tablets and two smartphones with some juice left over.

    Someone should make an outlet that can use every single one of those prongs on that All-in-One adapter. Unecessary? Yes. But so are the greatest things in life.

    Besides, just the lulz from showing it off would be worth it.

    The Leatherman tool is TSA-compliant - ie, it has no knife.

    But, will it stop the TSA nazis from taking it (read: it's too cool not to take)?

      @gwd3@... This is why you would want a TSA-compliant one. That way you can take it with you through security, instead of the luggage check where baggage handlers go through your bags to find things to steal.

      If you're really concerned, don't take a multitool with you and ship it to your destination to meet you when you get there. Then do the same on the return leg of your journey.
