ZTE SPro2 Smart Projector

The days of lugging a big projector on business trips are over with the small ZTE SPro2 Smart Projector. The SPro2 has a 4-inch screen for controlling the projector and also interfaces with an Android app. Shoot your presentation (or TV show) to a blank wall (up to 120 inches), and put it in your pocket when done.

The ZTE SPro2 projector is available on Amazon for $399.

Mos Reach 90 USB-C Charger and hub

The USB-C port is state-of-the-art and is appearing on new laptops. The new MacBook has one, and so does the latest Chromebook Pixel. Frequent travelers do well to carry external battery packs to charge gadgets on the go but there aren’t many that work with the USB-C plugs.

That’s where the upcoming Reach 90 comes in handy. It can not only charge a laptop at full speed over the USB-C connection, it can do so while also charging two other USB 3.0 devices. Oh, it’s a USB hub, too.

No word on what the price of the Mos Reach 90 will be when it’s available but you can sign up for news from the company about the product.

Brunton Power Knife

In spite of the product name, the Brunton Power Knife only looks like a weapon and requires no power. It’s actually a handy tool containing a Lightning cable, 30-pin Apple cable, and a microUSB cable. This lets you leave most gadget cables at home and just carry the Power Knife when traveling.

The Brunton Power Knife is $24.99.

Airhook

There is nothing more miserable than flying in coach, being crammed into a space that makes using tablets and phones difficult. Opening the tray table to set a drink and mobile device on makes the small space even more intolerable.

That’s where the Airhook comes to the rescue. This small gizmo being pitched in a current Kickstarter campaign attaches to the closed tray table in front of you, providing a cup holder and phone/ tablet stand that is out of the way.

It will fit tablets up to 7 inches tall, so an iPad can be used for watching video in landscape.

Estimated retail price for the Airhook is $29.

SanDisk Ultra Fit 64GB Flash Drive

Flash drives are handy but only when you remember to bring one. That’s where the Ultra Fit from SanDisk comes into play. The 64GB flash drive barely sticks out of the laptop’s USB port so you can plug it in before you leave home and then forget about it. You’ll always know where it is and the big capacity should handle most any job.

Get the SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 64GB Flash Drive for $24.99 on Amazon.

EcoCity Crossbody Bag

Traveling light makes it easier for the mobile professional, especially those whose work day involves a bicycle commute. The EcoCity is a cross body bag that can be worn on the chest or the back, and carries a surprising amount of gear for its size. It has a number of pockets both inside and outside the bag sized to fit common gadgets, accessories, and other stuff. The main compartment exactly fits an iPad Air 2 in a typical keyboard case (tested with a Belkin Qode Ultimate Keyboard), and an iPhone 6 Plus fits in a couple of the pockets.

The EcoCity bag only weighs a few ounces when empty due to the lightweight canvas construction. It serves as a decent daily bag and also is good for traveling. Its thin profile allows walking down the aisle on flights without hitting everyone and can easily be stowed under the seat in front of you, avoiding the annoying overhead bins.

You can get the EcoCity Crossbody Bag on Amazon for $19.99.
