Everyday Carry: Charge

Mar 21, 2018

Category: Everyday Carry

With everything in our world going increasingly in the digital direction – from our music, to our movies, to communication, and more – it’s silly to think that one’s everyday carry wouldn’t also be influenced by the electronic revolution. In fact, you could argue that anyone with a smartphone has already jumped on board. Why stop there when there are so many tech-focused pieces of gear you could add to your loadout that would make your life easier and more convenient? Whether you’ve already got some electronics you carry with you every day or you’re looking to start, this week’s pocket dump is aimed at highlighting all things tech.

Anker PowerCore+ mini Portable Charger

We’ve all had that panicked realization that our phone battery won’t last until the next time we’re near an outlet. Well, with Anker’s PowerCore+ mini portable charger, you can ease your mind. About the size of a chapstick tube, this on-the-go battery has enough juice to keep your phone going for an extra 6 hours or more.

Purchase: $15

MecArmy Illuminex-4S Flashlight

The world’s smallest USB-rechargeable EDC flashlight, this tiny torch is a simple addition to even the most crowded keychain. It helps, too, that it offers 6 hours of light, can be fast charged in only an hour, and it puts out 130 lumens.

Purchase: $24

Nomad Lightning Carabiner

Disguised as a handy keychain carabiner – with a durable stainless steel core and Dow Dupont polycarbonate exterior – this device has a secondary hideaway function: an Apple MFi-certified quick-charge/sync Lightning cable. That means, wherever you can find a USB port, you can charge your Apple gear with this handy tool.

Purchase: $30

Livescribe 3 Smartpen

Though most people take electronic notes on their phones, there’s something to be said for physically writing things down. Well, the Livescribe 3 Smartpen gives you the best of both worlds, as you can scrawl things down on paper, but it will also transcribe them digitally, to be accessed later via an included app.

Purchase: $139

CASIO WSD-F20 Protrek Smartwatch

One of Casio’s most impressive offerings, this outdoor-focused smartwatch can do everything from tell time around the world to show you topographical maps of your surroundings. It’s also water resistant to 50 meters, can operate GPS for up to 25 hours straight, and only takes 2 hours to fully charge.

Purchase: $500
