The Best Eco-friendly Travel Gadgets

Excuse the long stretch of no travel gear reviews here, but I am on the move through western Canada until next week and am using stuff instead of logging on and writing about it. More to come.

Meanwhile, here's a rundown of the best eco-friendly travel gear I put together for a new site called I'm working as their gear and gadget review columnist, so there are some other ones there and more on the way. This one is topical though, as fuel costs continue to rise and we all look for ways to lessen our impact on the environment as we travel.

Many of these items you have seen reviewed here before, such as the cool HyMini wind charger, the BoGo Solar Flashlight, and the Shake Flashlight.

I will be getting a review of the Solo Magnesium solar charger up here soon, but first I have to spend some more time with it to grasp how in the world the company justifies a $200 price tag for something that doesn't seem to crank out much juice...
