With its 100 grams, Lexon Design’s new Softpower Magbank is light enough to always carry in your pocket, and is available in camel brown, red, blue or black. It is a Magsafe and qi charger combined with a (admittedly modest) 3,000 mAh power bank. Magsafe charging requires iPhone 12 or later, then the box is snapped onto the back of the phone. The charger also delivers 5 watts wirelessly to headphones, as well as additional gadgets via the included USB-C cable.

Travel in your own bubble
Modern headphones often require you to fumble with your phone. The true wireless headphones JBL Tour Pro 2 move the most important thing from the mobile app to the charging box, whose touch screen shows the battery status, allows you to manage noise reduction and calls. Adjustments that are made less often are handled in the associated app, such as fine-tuning the ambient sound so that you can move more safely in messy urban environments. Available in black or champagne, suitable for rain but not for bathing and provides eight hours of listening with the noise reduction switched on.

Order of technology
All technology should of course be transported and stored safely, orderly and functionally in a toiletry case such as the Incase Facet. A 22 centimeter bag with an empty weight of 100 grams, made in recycled, water-repellent black or gray polyester twill. The zippers to the two compartments are moisture-proof so your stuff doesn’t get damaged, and inside there are pockets to keep cords and other accessories separate.

Tracking saves the holiday
There are more tracking tiles than Airtags and Tile, for example the Slovenian Chipolo One which is sold in an affordable four-pack with bright colors. Put them on suitcases and handbags, keys and other valuables, keep an eye on the app for IOS and Android and trigger alarm signals to find the stuff up to 60 meters away. Over longer distances, Chipolo uses its own track network, while the One Spot model, which is a hundredfold more expensive, uses Apple’s “Find My” network. Extra plus for replaceable battery, which lasts up to two years.

Load everything at once
Need even more charging, packed in a mini case for extra cords and adapters? The Mophie Snap+ Travel Charger has a magnetic charging pad for mobile phones and headphones such as Airpods, as well as wired charging of computers and the like via usb-c and usb-a. Not a true Magsafe charger as standard (allows only 7.5 watts for iPhones but 15 watts for Android devices), but a 60 percent more expensive special Apple version is sold on their site.

Every hecto is valuable
A portable luggage scale is worth its price many times over, as even regular airlines have become increasingly restrictive and luggage costs radically higher. It’s not rocket science! The scale must handle the largest luggage on transatlantic flights, have a strap and not just a hanger hook to tighten around the handle, a backlit screen and a replaceable battery. The scale from Rubicson has all this and can handle up to 50 kg, with a precision of 10 grams. That’s good.
