Posted by No Comment

As 2012 is now well upon us, it’s time to take a look at what the best new travel gadgets will be this year.

Scott Farler of Fodors.com has taken the time to compile a list of the top 10 travel gadgets of 2012, based on his experiences at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he was able to try out many of these gadgets first-hand.

Top of Scott’s list (ranking number one) was the GrooveShark Bluetooth Car Kit.

This bluetooth car radio is available for $119.99 and is said to massively enhance the way we listen to music while driving.

So why is it so good? “Using this device and your Android phone, you can make hands-free calls, stream any of 15 million GrooveShark Radio songs to your car’s radio, share music with friends, and build music libraries” says Scott. “Along the way, it will charge your smartphone (or other device) as it plays”

Fifth on the list was the PowerTrekk, a portable water-powered fuel cell charger (available for $240).

This product was developed in Sweden and was made for outdoor enthusiasts (such as campers, hikers and bikers) who need electrical power out in the wild.

This device is perfect is you need to charge up your mobile phones or power other small devices, as it means you don’t have to mess around with solar power or worry about finding an electrical outlet.
