Indispensable Travel Tool
Trans4m Charger
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.





Strictly Business
BlackBerry Torch

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!





Strictly Personal
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.





Entertainment
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.
