Toolbox BBQ, untethering your headphones and tent TV

Travel Gear: a portable BBQ, a handy Bluetooth clip and TV for the great outdoors

 

Portable Toolbox BBQ

The old school toolbox design suddenly seems like a savvy fit when you see this Portable BBQ from Suck UK. The metal drawers step open to access the main stainless steel grill, with warming racks to the side. While a section underneath unfolds offering storage for tongs, forks and the tools of the BBQ trade. One neat touch is the way the handles pivot under to lift it off any BBQ unfriendly surfaces. A vent helps control the burn temperature (of course, you’ll burn the food anyway) and it’s all in appropriate fire engine red.

iTrip Clip: Turns any headphones wireless

Liberate your ears from the tyranny of cables with Griffin Technology’s iTrip Clip. Basically, it turns any headphones wireless – just plug them in and Bluetooth pair it with your player. It doesn’t just channel the audio, though, you can also use a built-in mic for handsfree calling or if you want to summon your voice-activated digital assistant from its slumber. Meanwhile, simple buttons let you control play, track skipping and volume. And of course, it clips, so you can stick it anywhere for fingertip control.

TV on holidays: Maplin HD Camping and Caravanning Satellite

If your idea of getting away from it all into the great outdoors needs a diet of your favourite shows or live sports, you could consider adding this suitcase to the packing. It’s got all the hardware you might need: a 39cm satellite dish, HD receiver, cables, connectors and a selection of mounts. Oh and an instruction manual, because it’s not quite point and squirt easy to get tuned in. You might need a bit of satellite luck and the tech equivalent of green fingers. But find that sweet spot, and a couple of hundred channels including HD are there for the watching.
