12/05/2011, For those who travel often with multiple devices, i.e. smartphone(s), cameras, tablets, etc, instead of lugging around with you multiple chargers (which could end up getting pretty heavy), perhaps Restoration Hardware’s Roll up Travel Charger is a travel accessory worth checking out.
10/26/2011, Travelers on the go probably have multiple device that could use a wireless internet connection, such as tablets, smartphones and laptops.

MyTab’s goal is to bring more loyalty in the travel industry by driving people to save […]

If that is the case, perhaps it’s time to ditch the marker pens and pins and go high-tech (sort of) with these LED wall maps.
