The Best Neck Pillow We’ve Ever Tested

This could be the best neck pillow I’ve ever tried out.  I can’t wait to take this with me on my flight next month to Paris. We have tested at least a dozen variations on the neck pillow and not one has ever been truly the right one. This might just be an exception!

You can pump this up to completely hold your head and neck up, and if you keep going you can stretch out your neck, which feels great. Many reviewers on Amazon said this has helped with neck pain, and others raved about it as a travel pillow.

A Travel Pillow with a built-in Hood

We have reviewed dozens of different travel pillows, from ones like the one above, with a pump, to funny looking Y-shaped pillows and ones with very complicated apparatuses.

This pillow combines two useful things–the pillow and a hood to block your eyes out. It’s the HTP, or Hooded Travel Pillow, from Grand Trunk. Made 0f microfleece, the HTP is available in black, crimson, peacock teal or gray.

Roadtripper Travel Mount for Your Car or Airplane Seat

Bracketron is the master of car phone holders, and they’ve got a new take on the traditional simple phone holder, the Roadtripper.

Using a stick-on magnet, this phone holder works for a cellphone or using a bigger magnetic mount, an iPad, which you can clip to the back of your airplane seat to watch movies.

My only beef is that my car, a Nissan, has very delicate fins for the vents and this is a bit too heavy to work on my car. But I’ll try it on the plane next time.

A power converter with a built-in USB power charger

Bracketron Qdapter.

Bracketron’s new QDapter offers you Australian, European, American and British plugs, that pop out using a clever dial. It’s a sturdy device, but a bit pricey considering how many of these most people already own.  Bracketron QDapter $42

A Battery for your iPhone You Plug In to Charge

I’m so glad that the new generation of power batteries come with something as sensible as a plug-in charger, instead of another mini-USB plug to get lost. This device by MyCharge is a bit heavy, but it packs an 8000 amp, five-volt output, and has two USB plugs so it can charge two phones at once.

Once you have one of these you never want to be without it!

myCharge Home&Go Portable Charger 8,000mAh/2.4 Dual USB Port  $39.99

A Battery with Built-in Cords and a Plug

My Charge also makes a better version of this battery. It’s better because it has its own cords that can charge an iPhone or an Android phone AT THE SAME TIME!  It’s twice as thick, and also offers a five-volt output.

I prefer the one with the cords, although it’s more expensive. myCharge(R) HubPlus Portable Charger for Lightning and Micro-USB Devices, Silver$95
