Keeping your devices charged on the move is a permanent problem for techy travelers, but this portable charger promises to change that.

The Powerstation boasts A/C and USB-C + A outlets for compatibility with pretty much any device, and recharges using a solar panel. It can even charge up to five devices at once, so there will be no arguing over who gets to use it first.

Boasting a 27,000mAh battery, the largest size allowed in carry-on luggage under TSA regulations, the Powerstation will keep a small army of devices operational. Take it on a group camping trip or take it with you on a long solo hike through the wilderness.

It is capable of charging an iPhone X 10 times over or a Canon DSLR battery 12 times. For photographers on a multiday shoot, a battery pack like this could be a godsend.

You can get your hands on a Powerstation for $229 once the Kickstarter campaign ends. It seems like a lot of money if you just need something to boost your phone during a long day out, but if you are headed off on a more extreme trip, it will justify its expense.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.
