Tech Wiz on headlamps, headphones and bags!

I realized this year that I have four headlamps. It isn’t a problem, one is on the boat (2 were), and three are at home. One of them doesn’t work anymore, so I got rid of it. That leaves me with two. We have one we use for our evening walk. Once Daylight savings time ends, the daylight ends with it. Normally in November, it is dark by roughly 530 at night which is before we are heading out.

Headlamps are important for us because we cross two streets. One of the streets is very busy, and we’ve almost been hit a couple of times in the daylight. The light is critical because, in the dark, the likelihood goes up without the headlight!

It is funny when I think about headlamps. We used to have them when we would go into caves years ago. I didn’t have one for a long time but now need one both for the boat (to check things in the engine room) but also on the walk. That got me considering other technology things I feel like I need. What’s in your bag question for today.

  • What’s in my bag – I have two headsets, one for my computer and one for my phones. Why two? Well, I got one at an event and the other I had already bought. I thought I wouldn’t keep the USB headphones, but, since having and using them, I am keeping them. Jabra makes great headphones, and both allow me to listen and speak.
  • A touching projector, for impromptu meetings
  • Power bank
  • And cables.

The bag changes when traveling with my family take out the headphones a put in a speaker and cameras.

For the most part, I have tried to reduce the weight of the bag when it is my backpack. If it is a rolling bag I am not as worried about weight, then it is more about the overall flexibility.

  1. I have a lightweight backpack, which I fill with just the stuff I think I’ll need at any one time. This is usually photographic equipment, spare battery, bean bag, etc. I wouldn’t mind a solar charger… so if anyone wants to gift me one for Christmas! lol
