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.

Portable Door Jammer Gives You Extra Security, Wherever You Are

Portable Door Jammer

 

How safe are you in your hotel room? There’s nothing to worry about if you’re booked in a five-star hotel but if you’re on a tight budget and went for the inn with the cheapest rates in the area, then you might find that to be a major concern come nightfall. That’s what happened to me when I traveled with a few friends last year to attend a concert. Halfway through the night, we heard loud banging in outside the halls in the dead of night, and one of my friends swore she heard someone try to open the door.

Suffice to say, we checked out the next morning and paid double for a fancier (and much safer) hotel. If you find yourself traveling to places that aren’t as safe or secure as you’d like, then it’s high time you got something like the portable door jammer as an added safety measure. It works with most doors and setting it up is pretty simple. Just slide it at the bottom of the door and crank out the arm until it’s secure and snug against the floor surface.

People on the outside will be able to see the jammer’s little arm, so maybe that’ll serve as a deterrent of sorts since they’ll have a more difficult time trying to sneak in or force their way into your room.

The Portable Door Jammer is available online for $48.

Update: Found a link on Amazon for $23.50. Link below updated. -Ed.

La Fonction is a Mobile Workstation You Can Carry Around

La Fonction Mobile Workstation

Working out of the office can be such a pain sometimes. Sure, things are a whole lot easier and more convenient with the advent of laptops and tablets, but there are a bunch of things that you can’t take from the office with you when you go. Like your workstation, for example, because that would just be impractical, not to mention nonsensical.

The good thing is that there’s an alternative, and it’s the La Fonction mobile workstation. It folds up neatly into a briefcase when you’re traveling. When it’s open, it has designated slots and pockets for your pens, papers, files, and other stuff that you normally need or use when you’re working.

Lay-N-Go Traveler Makes Packing and Unpacking Easier

Lay N Go

Whether it’s a day trip, a weekender, or a week-long trip, the Lay-N-Go Traveler will be able to make packing and unpacking a whole lot easier for you. It’s a bag can be unfolded and transformed into a mat, effectively laying all your stuff in front of you. That way, you won’t have to rummage through your bag (and mess everything up in the process) in search for a single object.

The Lay-N-Go Traveler isn’t meant to hold your clothes or extra shoes, given the size, but it’s perfect for personal effects and smaller essentials, like your toothpaste, glasses, razor, deodorant, and phone charger and cables, among other things. It’s also available in another size, the Lay-N-Go Lifestyle, which is a larger version that you can use to carry more stuff like food for a picnic or toys for kids to play with at the beach.

The Lay-N-Go Traveler is priced at $29.95, while the Lifestyle costs $49.95.

Everpurse is a Phone-Charging Purse

Everpurse

The holidays is a time of joy, laughter, and cheer. It also happens to be one of the most busiest times of the year. Lately, I find myself chasing after time, and juggling work, homework, blogging, and everything else is starting to make me more absentminded than usual. I’ve become so absentminded that I left the house three times last week with zero battery because I forgot to plug my phone into the charger.

Whether you forgot to charge your mobile or need to rush out mid-charge, the Everpurse will definitely come in handy for you. It looks snazzy on the outside, but it also happens to be a portable phone charger on the inside. The purse’s special charging pocket has a dock connector at the bottom which hooks it up with your device, so you won’t have to fish for cords while you’re on the go.

Conceptual ‘Copy & Paste’ Tool is a Portable Scanner and Printer In One

Copy Paste

Do you copy and paste stuff a lot when you’re on the computer? It simplifies a lot of tasks and doesn’t take more than few seconds to do if you’re familiar with the usual shortcuts. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could somehow do the same in real life?

That’s what the folks behind the Copy & Paste tool are envisioning with their concept design. It looks like one of those scanning guns that cashiers use to scan the code on the stuff that you’re buying. Only this time, you’re supposed to move the device over whatever it is you want to copy and paste.

Kii is One of the Smallest iDevice Chargers You’ll Ever Use

Accessory Charger

Nothing is more annoying than going on a trip out of town (or even just across the town) and having your phone or table die out on you. You could get one of those portable, external batteries for some instant extra juice, or you can get the Kii accessory charger instead.

The Kii is a teeny tiny accessory charger that connects and syncs your iDevice with your laptop or portable charger. There’s a Lightning connector version and one with the 30-pin connector that works with older iPhones. It’s especially convenient since its small size lets you attach it to your keychain so you can easily take it with you on your travels.
