Small Speaker, Great Sound: Aiia Ssssspeaker

Aiia Ssssspeaker

 

Big sound, small speakers. That’s probably what best describes the Aiia Ssssspeaker. At first glance, the speaker with the unusual name doesn’t really look like much of a speaker. In fact, it probably looks more like a hockey puck when it’s not in use. But pull the collapsible cone out from the base of the speaker and get ready to get lost in your favorite tunes.

One major downside? Aiia isn’t built with Bluetooth so you won’t be able to hook it up with your music player or smartphone wirelessly; instead, you’ll have to hook it up via the 3.5mm auxiliary port.

Check Out Dart, The World’s Smallest Laptop Adapter

Dart Laptop Charger

If you work out of the office a lot, then chances are you’ve had to deal with lugging a bulging laptop bag around because of the bulky adapter that it came with. Leaving it really isn’t an option, considering there’s only so much–or rather, so little–that you can do on limited power. It’s a problem people face, day in and day out, and it’s one that the folks behind Dart pretty much solved with its release.

Dart is dubbed as the “world’s smallest laptop adapter” and that might very well be true if you look at the images of it. It’s roughly four times smaller than the average 65W charger, with a volume of only 2.5 cubic inches. It comes with a six foot cable and comes with an integrated USB port, allowing you to charge your laptop and another device, like you tablet, at the same time.

Mogo Portable Seat Is Great For Concerts

Focal-Mogo-Portable-Seat

With the snow melting, it’s definitely not too soon to start thinking about the music festivals ahead. As synonymous with summer as terraces and beach time, these festivals are awesome until you realize you’ve been standing on your feet for 8 hours. The Mogo by Focal Upright is a 2 lbs. collapsible seat that can be deployed in an instant, and will take weight off your feet so you can keep going a little longer. It easily stowes away in a backpack and can support up to 200 lbs.

And of course the uses aren’t limited to concerts. Anyone who spends long periods on their feet will want to consider this, even at the somewhat steep price of $95.

TravelCard Smartphone Charger Fits In Your Wallet

TravelCard Charger0

 

There are many credit card-shaped charger adapters out there, but no actual chargers that fit right into your wallet–until now, that is. The TravelCard is slightly thicker than your average credit card and it holds up to five hours of extra talk time, 4.5 hours of Internet use, or 98 hours of standby time. That’s pretty impressive considering its compact size.

Using it is as simple as 1-2-3: just fish it out of your wallet, plug it into your phone’s hub, and you’re good to go. It comes built with either an integrated Lightning or Micro USB charging cable, so it’s compatible with most iOS and Android devices.Continue Reading

Small Mic, Big Voice: Micro Karaoke Player

Micro Karaoke

You’re no Bruno Mars but you’re no William Hung either. But like the two, you have a passion for music and love to sing. If you can’t wait until you get home before belting out a few choice lines from your favorite song, then here’s something you’ll no doubt enjoy having: the Micro Karaoke Player. As the name suggests, it’s a handy karaoke player that’s small enough to fit into your bag or pocket.

Okay, so it’s essentially just a mini microphone that comes with echo features, but it’s the closest to on-the-go karaoke that you can get. The Micro Karaoke Player is meant to be connected to your music player and you can hook up earphones or speakers for the output.

From the earphones attached to the “mini karaoke”, you can hear a combination of the music from the music player and your own voice complete with echo through the microphone. It is as if you are singing the song you love at your favorite karaoke bar. 

Just make sure you have the songs pre-loaded onto your mobile device or music player. The Micro Karaoke Player is available for $38.90.

Case Hobo is the Swiss Army Knife for On-the-Go Diners

Case Hobo Knife

You can eat most take-out food with nothing but your hands and maybe some tissue, but there are some that can only be enjoyed with utensils (spaghetti, for one). Nothing is more infuriating than getting ready to chow down, only to realize that they forgot to include plastic utensils with your food.

Cue the Case Hobo, which is like a Swiss Army knife for people who eat on the go a lot, since it folds out to reveal a spoon, a fork, and a knife. With an amber bone handle and the utensils made from surgical steel, this is as fancy as portable utensils can get. Obviously you won’t be able to use all three at once, but it sure beats having to use your hands.

The Case Hobo is priced at $70.

Spare Tire Mount Grill: No Flat (Stomachs) Here!

Spare Tire Mount Grill

So this is the Spare Tire grill from Front Runner, and the first things you’ll notice are its peculiar-looking legs. In fact, the grill itself looks unlike most of the other grills on the market. The Spare Tire grill won’t be able to replace the grill that’s already in your backyard, but it will be your go-to grill for traveling or when you go camping.

There’s a reason why the grill’s solid steel legs are oriented that way. Staying true to its name, the Spare Tire grill can be hooked over a spare wheel (only those that measure 29” to 37” anyway) so you can fill your car with either more people, more meat, more coolers, or more sleeping bags. The grill is laser cut and forged from stainless steel, with grill and griddle sections so you can cook your food the way you want to.

The Spare Tire grill is available online for $125.

Spark SPI is a Sleeping Bag You Can Hold in the Palm of Your Hand

Spark Spl Sleeping Bag

 

Camping and spending time in the great outdoors is fun. The packing part–not so much. There’s only so much that you can carry in a backpack and it’s unfortunate how much space a sleeping bag can take. That’s a first-world problem addressed by Sea to Summit with their Spark SPI sleeping bag.

It’s comfortable, as it’s packed with 850+ loft goose down in an ultralight 10D shell. What sets it apart is its portability: even with its cushy comforts, the entire sleeping bag can be folded, rolled, and compressed into a ball of sorts that fits right in the palm of your hand.

Thee Spark SPI is available online for $390.

SolarCooler Keeps Drinks Cool With Sun Power

Solar Cooler

 

Can something hot be used to cool other objects down? You don’t have to think too hard before answering “yes.” That’s precisely what the SolarCooler does. It’s a portable cooler of sorts that’s powered by solar energy. It has solar panels covering its surface to harness the power of the sun, which is used to cool down the contents of the cooler.

The applications of the SolarCooler go beyond keeping those six-packs of beer cool for your road trip. It can potentially be used to transport vaccines in areas of the world where they are needed. In fact, the team behind the cooler plan to sponsor a pilot run of Vaccine SolarCoolers in Africa.
