HP Scanjet Professional 1000 Mobile Scanner
Hot from the high-tech presses at HP comes the venerable brand’s first mobile scanner, designed to capture documents on the spot — in the office, at a customer site and even on the road. With the ability to scan a variety of paper sizes and mediums, including embossed cards, it lets you digitize documents nearly anywhere and on the go. Complemented by a comprehensive software suite — which includes Nuance PaperPort to convert scans into editable files and the NewSoft Presto! BizCard Reader, which scans and organizes business cards — it’s ideal for keeping tabs on contracts, forms, receipts and business cards away from the office. Powered solely by a PC USB 2.0 port, the scanner weighs less than two pounds and comes with a carrying case for maximum portability. $249.

Powermat Portable 2x
When it comes to charging your devices, it doesn’t get much cooler — or easier — than this portable powerhouse. Just plug your run-down gadget into the Powermat 2x’s Powercube universal receiver, place the receiver and your gadget on the mat and — presto! — the rejuicing begins. (You can also purchase dedicated receivers separately for common devices like BlackBerrys and iPhones, allowing you to charge them directly on the mat without the Powercube.) Embedded into the mat is a high-capacity battery which lets you charge two gizmos at once without the need to plug the mat into an outlet. The mat also folds into a sleek carrying case and comes with a set of international plugs. You’ll never have to waste time untangling cords of your various chargers again — hooray! $80.
