Spring is right around the corner, and with spring comes travel. Whether you’re headed off on that well-deserved vacation or simply getting out of town for a weekend, start your packing list with these three products from Twelve South. You’ll be glad you did.
Bluetooth headphones are becoming increasingly approachable for the average consumer. But most airlines haven’t upgraded their systems yet, meaning those AirPods or wireless noise cancelers are limited to use with your device. Enter the Airfly. Though a small dongle (1.8 x 1.3 inches), it packs a Bluetooth punch. Simply turn it on and pair it to your wireless headphones. Once linked, plug the headphone cable (provided) into the dongle and then the plane’s headphone jack and voila! wireless in-flight entertainment.
Pro Tip: The AirFly is essentially a Bluetooth emitter. Therefore, it can be used to pair any device with a standard headphone jack including most analog stereo equipment.
The Journal CaddySack
The Apple USB charging cable is one of the most important items on a trip. Whether you’re on the road for a day or a month, you get far without one. The Journal CaddySack is designed to keep cables, chargers and other vital pieces of kit tangle-free and ready to use. The CaddySack also works great for storing your chargers, SD cards or hard drives as well. Constructed from New Zealand leather and lined with chevron tweed, the CaddySack is classy and practical.
Pro Tip: Use the CaddySack to store a battery backup for your iPhone and iPad. Pass the USB cable out the bottom of the zipper closure to enjoy a tidy charging station on the go.
From a cramped coffee shop to the airport terminal, there’s nothing more coveted than an open power outlet. But as any modern traveler knows, you often need more than one to charge all your tech. Not any more. The PlugBug specializes in making the most of that single outlet. Integrating with your MacBook seamlessly, the PlugBug offers two USB charging ports. Traveling internationally? No problem. The PlugBug comes standard with five international plug adapters, including the standard US adapter.
Pro Tip: The PlugBug’s ports offer different amplitude. Use the 2.1-amp USB port (Labeled 2.1A) for your iPad or for faster phone charging. Save the 1-amp port (labeled 1A) for your AirPods.
