Min Kyu Choi has come up with a real corker of an idea. A plug that folds flat creating that little bit extra space in your luggage. It should also prevent your laptop being scratched or damaged in transit as this was Min Kyu Choi’s inspiration for the award winning creation.

In this film the Min Kyu Choi explains the design process in elegant and modest pros.

If you are looking to book a holiday in an unspoilt location somewhere in Europe then you may like to visit the VintageHolidays blog first. We recently discovered this little gem, which shares unbiased information about major and minor European festivals, interesting and culturally rich things to see around some of ancient Europe as well as provides an interesting source of information about some rather impressive private villas you can hire.

We believe it’s one of the best European travel blogs around and has been posting for well over 2 years. A fantastic resource!

With thousands of students heading off for the first time or returning to Uni this Autumn, First Luggage have developed a rather useful service set to take the stress out of the whole affair.

Student’s often take their worldly possessions on a train, plane or in a car which is not much fun (from experience) I have to say. The service is aptly named ‘Smarter Students’ and is a student friendly (in terms of budget), hassle-free door-to-door collection service operating within the UK as well as internationally. Prices start at just £20.

The service also ensures everything arrives in one piece! From computers to cutlery First Luggage will ensure it gets to the final destination without a hitch.

If the above news isn’t enough to convince you then First Luggage was recently recognized as one of the top 10 most promising businesses in the UK (at the coveted nationwide ‘Start Up Stars Awards’) and has already gained support from Dannii Minogue and official ambassadors in glamorous Joan Collins, socialite and journalist Normandie Keith and British travel veteran Alan Whicker, media personality Piers Morgan. Say no more!

This innovative Duracell mini charger has recently picked up an award for the 2008 battery product of the year award. Obscure I know but a fantastic achievement all the same.

It charges anything from your battery operated shaver to your electric eyelash curlers, and it’s small, so it’s perfect take away on holiday!

It comes with rechargeable batteries, and allows you to recharge them over and over. It plugs straight into the wall and charges up two AA or AAA batteries.

The best bit is that it’s only £9.99 so will pay for itself in no time!

How often is it that we forget to take a phone charger on holiday and we’re stranded when the battery fails. Mobile phones are more than just a gadget to keep your friends posted on your shenanigans… when travelling they are crucial to your safety and alerting people to potential dangerous situations.

Here’s a little gadget called the Juicebar which is a highly affordable safety net at £2.99. It’s infact the world’s slimmest disposable mobile phone charger that can recharge a completely flat mobile phone battery in around 60 minutes, giving you up to 60 minutes of talk time and 480 minutes standby.

Just plug a Juicebar into your phone, and charging will start.  You can even use your phone whilst it is charging.

Juicebar is available for Nokia, Sony, Samsung, Motorola and Blackberry phone brands with an LG product available soon.
