I learned a long time ago that the most important accessory I need to pack when traveling is a power bar. It doesn’t matter if I’m in a hotel room, in an airport or sitting in a convention hall, the number of power outlets available always seems to be ‘n-1’ where ‘n’ is the number of gadgets I need to charge or power. Thankfully there are now quite a few different compact power bars on the market, like the Portable Power Outlet from Kensington. But what I like most about Kensington’s offering is that it includes 2 USB ports in addition to 3 standard power outlets. That allows you to charge devices like your iPhone, iPod or Zune without having to pack their own power adapters. The Portable Power Outlet also features built-in surge protection with a status LED to protect you against power spikes, and a short extension cord which wraps around the body keeping it compact when not in use.

It’s available on the Kensington website for $24.99.

    That “n-1” bit is so true… Why does it always happen?!
