Satechi Smart Travel Router
The Satechi Smart Travel Router is two devices in one – it's a travel adapter that works in over 150 countries that features a 2.1A USB port, and it's also a travel wi-fi/Ethernet router capable of the following modes:
- Router: Functions as a typical router, connecting to the internet provided by your ISP and broadcasting a wireless signal, enabling you to create your own network.
- Repeater: Connect to your existing network and amplify it. This enables you to extend the range of your wireless network – invaluable if you have a weak connection in a room far away from your router.
- Access Point: Create a wireless connection from a wired source. If only an Ethernet port or Ethernet cable is available, the router can connect to the wired connection and broadcast a wireless network that all your devices can connect to.
- Client: Connect to a device such as a Smart TV or video game console via an Ethernet cable. The Smart Travel Router can then be used as a wireless adapter, enabling the connected device to connect to the internet wirelessly.
Anker 2nd Gen Astro3 12,000mAh External Battery Pack
Carry a whopping 12,000mAh of power – enough to recharge the iPhone six times according to the manufacturer – in your pocket with the Anker Astro3. This battery pack doesn't have any buttons, and all you need to do to start it charging or to check the power levels is to give it a shake.
SKB 3I-1813-5B-N Notebook Case
The SKB mil-spec waterproof/crushproof notebook case is, without a doubt, the best carry case for a notebook that I have ever owned. It's solid, robust, well-built, and protects my notebook from bumps and bruises when out and about.
It's also packed with features:
- Ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer
- Waterproof, airtight, submersible design (IP67)
- Resistant to corrosion and impact damage
- Continuous molded-in hinge
- Trigger release latch system with TSA-approved latches
- Rubber over-molded cushion grip handle
- Ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C)
- Padlockable with a customer supplied lock
- Hook and loop desktop
- Convenient foam storage compartment for accessories
- Interior hardcore and foam protection
Not as forgiving as a soft case, but if you are carrying a $1,000 notebook around with you then you might appreciate the protection it offers.
