On the road again
Just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you have to leave all the comforts of home. Take some with you to make the trip more pleasant.
Strange place, strange bed, strange noises—how’s a body supposed to get some sleep? Drift off with soothing white noise from Marpac’s Rohm portable electronic sound machine. Less than 4 inches in diameter, it packs easily, masks distracting noises wherever you go, and recharges via USB cable. $35, (800) 999-6962, marpac.com.
Let’s say you’re that rare breed whose car doesn’t smell like cigarette smoke, unwashed dog, last week’s fast food, or the gym bag in the backseat. Passengers will still breathe better with a Schatzii AIR Ionic Car Air Purifier and Car Charger. Plug it into the cigarette lighter to minimize odors, fumes, dust, pollen, and airborne contaminants, and gain two USB ports to charge devices. $50, (415) 812-8695, schatzii.com.
Bluesmart One is a single carry-on bag with a multitude of solutions. Easy-access pockets for electronic devices speed you through airport check-ins. Other clever built-ins include a location tracker, device charger, TSA-compliant remote locking, and digital scale. You’ll have to roll it yourself, though. $449, bluesmart.com.
Minimize pit stops on the road by keeping snacks and drinks handy in the car. The Koolatron P20 Compact Cooler stashes neatly in tight spaces. No ice needed; it plugs into a 12-volt receptacle, and it can also be set to keep warm food warm. $140, (800) 265-8456, koolatron.com/us.
