COLUMBIA, SC -- 'Tis the season for road trips and thanks to a travel series I host for USA Today Video Travel, I get to test A LOT of tech. Two recent accessories that I've had a chance to use (and now buy since I loved them so much) are both on sale today. I consider these two pieces of tech the ultimate road trip companions.
Let's start with my first pick: The Anker Dual USB Portable Charger is a universal battery charger. It charges pretty much anything with a USB port whether it's an iPhone, iPad, Galaxy, HTC or other Android Device. The Anker gives you almost 7 charges of a device on one run. It can also simultaneously charge two devices. I love this thing and it's on sale again today!
**Please note after several thousand are sold it's likely store will raise prices and we have no control over this.
My second favorite accessory is the "do it all mount" - a universal car mount that will hold almost any smartphone and makes use of that often obsolete CD slot in our vehicles. The ExoMount Touch CD mounts smartphones within reach for hands-free operation or GPS display. It accommodates everything from an iPhone to a Galaxy, Droid Razr, Blackberry and countless other devices. There is no longer a need to buy different mounts for the various devices in your household. This is the best car mount I've ever used.
Was: $32.99 (with shipping)
Now: $26.99 (with shipping)
**Allow up to 10 days for delivery. The store behind today's deal has been extensively tested and is under new ownership. They've handled thousands upon thousands of viewer orders with slow shipping but good success. Price is $5 higher than when I first tested the mount due to popular demand but still the lowest price in the country with free shipping.
