The X-Mini Xoundbar is an elegant, very small, portable speaker from a company that tends to put out very nice products. But it's the myCharge AdventureUltra which intrigues me the most. It's the kind of portable charger I've been watching for a few years, and several companies are starting to get it right. At the moment, myCharge (another company I like) has the smallest and lightest of them. It's a high capacity charge, but what makes it special -- though there are others like it that hold more storage, but are heavier and bigger -- is that it has an AC outlet built-in, so (for instance) you can take this on a picnic or car-camping and bring along some home comforts, like a blender or toaster-oven. Or take it on a long airplane flight for your laptop.
As always, because it's a pain to re-code the original article, which is written for the Writers Guild Online website, here's the link to it there, already posted.
