The essentials for the office

13 Apr

essentialsSpring is here (for the moment, so let’s enjoy while it lasts), it’s time to ride the Parisian cement with my Biscuit.

But what’s in my backpack to survive the day at the office?

Now, I’m ready for the office … Need to push faster my Biscuit as I’m already late …

I’m glowing

TEC-A3 Glow fobI’m glowing … glowing in the dark!
How many times did you arrive home and look for your keys in the bottom of your backpack or purse … Nothing to see, but you can hear them …

I don’t anymore thanks to my (super light, as small as a dollar coin) glow fob.
My glow fob has the shape of a little tube containing a pellet and liquid.
While exposed to the sun or UV it stores the lights ready to glow in the dark.
If you feel like going DIY, you can buy the pellet, liquid and container separately … I went for the easy ready option and bought the TEC-A3 Glow Fob.
Chose between aircraft grade aluminum (TEC-A3, priced at US$18), stainless steel (TEC-S3, US$23) or titanium (TEC-T3, US$36).

It’s fun and usefull for kids, as an extra light in their room or attached at their jacket as a zipper pull, and also for grownups like me …

The light at the end of the tunnel

Photo 7-06-13 8 28 55 PMBecause we don’t wear night googles when we walk at night, a flashlight is mandatory when it comes to face darkness and see in the dark.
Great to untangle the electric cables behind the TV or to find the keys in an heavy purse or to get your key in the keyhole without groping in the dark as well as to send a distress signal or avoid roots in the wood while hiking … to summ up, a flashlight is a basic in any bag.

It shouldn’t be heavy or too big though, that’s why I settle for the keyring “Swipe To Shine or STSInova Microlight.

The Inova Microlight STS by NiteIze is small, light, easy to operate, you just have to swipe!

Swipe left (like on your iPhone) to turn the light on and swipe right to turn it off. Great to avoid your flashing discharges itself by pushing on a button unintentionally.

Photo 7-06-13 8 29 15 PM3 lights modes are available (just swipe left)
high power, 16 lumens, lasting 9 hours
low power, 2 lumens, lasting 64 hours
strobe, to signal your position when in distress

Good to know, the Microlight works on 2 2032 lithium batteries and comes with a S-biner clip.

This flashlight is a great add-on to your keyring!
