    Mark's pick:

    41V3kBjrgOLKenu Airframe + Car Mount for Phablets ($30)

    I have been using a suction-cup phone mount in my car for years. Too big to travel with and it falls off. This one is small and hasn’t yet met a vent it won’t attach to.



    Jason's pick:

    51+ZkbwibzLXtreme Charge Battery Charger ($77) 

    This battery charger has saved me and my money countless times. It helps keep new batteries working longer and has brought some older ones back to life.



    Xeni's picks:

    41p5O2DnKzL._SY355_ZAQ Noor Litemist Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser  ($40)

    It’s like a little mood lamp that emits nice smells. Aromatherapy to brighten your mood while you work, or help remind your brain to calm down when it’s time to sleep. Auto shut-off, goes 3-4 hours. Mildly humidifying, too. Buy your own oils for it. Quiet.



    71NT4y+GEwL._SL1500_Brenthaven MetroLite BP XF X-Ray Friendly Laptop/Tablet/Ultrabook Backpack ($91) 

    I have been searching for a good, ergonomic backpack for ultra-light travel. I think I’ve found it. Lots of compartments, and butterflies open for security screening. My back feels great after a long day of travel, even with it totally full.
