Indispensable Travel Tool
I can charge most of my devices with this, whether it’s plugged into a wall socket or a car cigarette lighter. It keeps me from carrying a dedicated charger for each device.
My BlackBerry allows me to stay in touch with everyone, no matter where I am. It’s amazing how many situations occur on weekends and holidays!
Swiss Army Knife
I’ve carried a pocketknife since I was a kid (an old Boy Scout). I’ve “donated” several to the TSA, forgetting I had them in my pocket until I got to airport security.
Sony Walkman MP3 Player
My daughter gave me this for Christmas several years ago, and it works great on those long flights. It’s basically a fancy USB jump drive — nice and small.
