Gadgets on the go.

Summary: If those hard-to-reach places have given you a headache, here's a

solution that's bound to make you smile. Amped Wireless's network

adapter kit will extend internet to any room (basement, attic, back

room, back of back room) using your existing power outlets.

Satechi Mini-router

Nasty hotel allowing only one internet connection per room? Well, that ain't going to be a concern no more with Satechi's 40-dollar mini-router. This pocket-friendly (pun intended) router is capable of sharing your room's wired internet by wifi and also work as a repeater. If you're a geek, it can also work as an access point, a bridge or a client to enable Smart TV viewing. For US$ 40, that's a pretty sweet deal. More info in the networking section at www.satechi.net

Patriot AERO Wireless Storage

Buyer's remorse post buying that 16 GB smartphone? Well, it may not be possible to upgrade to 32 or 64 in all cases, but a 500 GB or a 1 TB upgrade seems plausible. Patriot's AERO wireless hard drive is a nifty little device that comes in two flavours: 500 GB & 1 TB. This device can connect with up to 5 smart phones and tablets simultaneously and share the data that it holds, all through wifi. Patriot promises 6-hour battery performance, which seems pretty alright. Ships from this month, with US$ 200 for 1TB and US$ 160 for 500 GB. More at www.patriotmemory.com

Powerline Nano AV500 Network Adapter Kit

If those hard-to-reach places have given you a headache, here's a solution that's bound to make you smile. Amped Wireless's network adapter kit will extend internet to any room (basement, attic, back room, back of back room) using your existing power outlets. All you need to do is to plug them in to existing power outlets to ensure your net connection gains extra reach. The kit's available for US$ 99 from www.ampedwireless.com. Add the cost of two plug-point adapters of you are using it in India.

Chargecard

Thin as a credit card. Stop. Fits in wallet. Stop. Charges iPhones and other phones. Stop. Can be charged by USB drive. Stop. When it comes to packing extra power for your juice-chugging smartphone, here's an option choosing which is a no-brainer. Chargecard's credit card sized charger is designed to fit in your wallet and at 0.1" thickness it should be able to make a place for itself even in the most compact ones. The card is priced at US$ 25 and available at www.chargecardproject.com

BlackBerry Mini Stereo Speaker

Blackberry's latest OS10 phone maybe getting all the attention, but there's a tiny accessory on the side that's quite a performer. Blackberry's Mini Stereo Speaker is a Bluetooth speaker kit that can clip on to your messenger bag, stay propped on a table or perform just about anywhere as a set of loud speakers. Let the small size not fool you as to what it can do. Apart from being a speakerphone and music player, the set can connect to two smartphones simultaneously and packs in about 12 hours of streaming time. Quite a catch for US$ 99. http://store.shopblackberry.comReproduced From India Today Travel Plus. Copyright 2013. LMIL. All rights reserved.
