Let's face it, there is nothing like heading to a beach or hanging out in your room with your favorite music, and nothing brings that to life like a high quality Bluetooth speaker. This may have been out of the question a few years ago, but it is not longer the case.
JBL Charge 2+ * AND * JBL Flip 3
JBL Charge 2+
Interesting features of the JBL Charge 2+ portable Bluetooth wireless speaker that I think make it a hit, aside from the affordable price of just around $100.00, has amazing sound for the size and its water-resistance. However, I would not climb into the shower or pool with this little guy just yet. This amazing little high powered speaker is lightweight and very portable.
The speaker can be played horizontally, which tends to provide the best bass sound, or you may stand it up vertically. The speaker has a USB port for convenient charging and a built-in battery life of 12 hours of playback. A brilliant feature of this micro power speaker is the ability to power up USB enabled devices such as a smartphones or tablets. The built-in speakerphone is an interesting feature and according to reviews works okay as long as you are within 5 to 10 feet of the microphone. Multiple users can also connect through a “social sharing mode” using their personal device.
JBL Flip 3
If you are having a difficult time making up your mind on which speaker to get, take a look at the JBL Flip 3. This is a third-generation speaker in the series and has been made streamlined and once again water-resistant. Battery life is about 10 hours according to reviews and the price will run you close to the $100.00 mark. Again we see all the amazing features of pause and play using the answer and end buttons and the speaker can be played vertically or horizontally.
You will be amazed at the bass that comes out of this compact little powerhouse. Another incredible feature that allows for more sound is the ability to link more than one speaker together to provide even more sound, although the volume will typically provide adequate sound by itself. There is also audio input and USB charging port with a protective cover over both. This speaker comes in many brilliant colors to appeal to everyone's taste. The JBL is intended for audio content from any Bluetooth-enabled device, such devices include tablets, smartphone and some computers that are in nearby proximity to the speaker.
Connect to your JBL and add some quality music to your trip.

Quench Your Thirst
We have all been there, that “I'm stuck here and would love a drink right now!” Here you have it anywhere… anytime! I picked this one because it is only 3 oz and sure to get by TSA checkpoints, it has a classy real hardwood casing and looks more like an aftershave or perfume bottle. It also has 5 stars out of 5 stars rating on Amazon. I have read reviews that 5 oz flasks will fly by TSA but I'd recommend getting two of these classy little jugs and avoid the hassle and questions or worse leave it behind.
