Olloclip 4-in-1 lens for iPhone 6 and 6s

Yes, the iPhone’s camera means  you don’t have to carry a big, bulky camera with you everywhere you go. However, if you want to do all the fancy trick shots that a standalone camera might be able to handle— you’ll need an Olloclip.

This magnetic clip slides over the corner of your iPhone camera and adds a wide angle, fisheye and two different macro lenses for (10x and 15x) lens for up-close shots. These are perfect for shooting flowers while on tropical vacations.

The resulting photos are sharp-looking and fun, and can be shared and saved just like any other photos you snap with your iPhone.

Zolt Charger

Any frequent traveler can tell you that the struggle to find a spare outlet at the airport is real. Zolt Charger is a compact charger that will minimize the number of cables you have to take with you around the world.

The single outlet charger lets you power both your laptop and two mobile devices, such as your phone or camera at the same time. When you’re done charging, slip the small device into your back pocket.

It’s about the size of a fat chap stick and rotates 90 degrees for placement when you plug it in.

Zolt Charger is $100 and comes with tips for major laptops, works with Macs, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Asus.

Tile 2

We all get a little forgetful from time to time. Tile 2 is a tiny device that can be attached to your laptop, keys, or anything else you might misplace. Once connected, you’ll be able to locate the beacon with your smartphone (How’d your keys end up at the bottom of your suitcase, anyway?).

Add a Tile to your passport, keys, key holder and more to have easy access to it no matter where you are

Tile 2 adds a new feature: the ability to find your phone. If your iPhone is what’s gone missing, just press any of your Tiles to make it ring. It’s $25 at Amazon.

Cobra Jumpack Power Pack and Jump Starter

The Jumpack is a battery pack for your mobile phone or iPad. But also, it’ll jump start your car. The device comes from Cobra and is perfect for road trips for assurance in case you need to jumpstart your car in these winter months.
