An accompanying app also lets you download maps that can be used offline, a boon in areas without a signal. $179.
ANKER NEBULA CAPSULE SMART PORTABLE PROJECTOR
Whether you’re beaming a presentation onto the wall at an impromptu meeting or relaxing with a film at the end of a long day, a portable projector is a great purchase for a traveling executive.

The Nebula Capsule also has its own HDMI port and an Android operating system, meaning it can be controlled via remote control without connecting to a laptop. However, an accompanying mobile app makes everything even easier. $319.99.
PALM MINI SMARTPHONE
The original Palm brand was a big deal in mobile technology before it went out of business. Now, a new company revives the name for this mini companion phone. With a tiny handset not much bigger than a credit card, the new Palm is designed to share your existing number but with fewer features than a primary smartphone. It helps people disconnect when they’re traveling with family and friends without worrying about missing a vital call, plus its waterproof feature makes it great for outdoor adventures. Available exclusively on Verizon in conjunction with a smartphone plan. $349.
XENVO PRO LENS KIT
If you’re tight for space in your pack and can’t fit in a standalone camera with all of its accessories, this camera lens kit will give your smartphone a considerable boost in terms of image quality. It lets you get a great shot of that amazing sunset you’re watching and works just as well on close-ups of small objects. Not bad for a device small enough to fit in your pocket. For iPhone or Android. $35.
