Wet Circuits Power Strip. Travelers never seem to have enough power outlets for charging all those electronics that simply must come along. Here's a four-outlet power strip that's also water resistant. Safe indoors or out, it sloughs off hot-tub splashes or a spilled cup of coffee, not to mention rain or snow (après-ski party on the deck, anyone?). An incorporated circuit breaker protects against overheating and electrical surges. (Available for $70 at www.wetcircuits.com)

 

Delsey's Helium SuperLite 21.5-inch Carry-On Expandable Trolley. Found, a really lightweight wheel-aboard bag tough enough to survive as checked luggage. It's made of a newfangled nylon that incorporates fiberglass technology to create a sturdy, solid frame that provides protection similar to hard-framed bags. The 21.5-by-14 -by-9-inch bag expands 2 inches and has two internal and two external zippered compartments. Wheels are recessed to withstand rough handling and provide a smooth glide. In black or mocha brown. (Available for $85.59 at www.ebags. com; 22774; 1-800-820-6126)

  • Balanzza Mini Digital Luggage Scale. Balanzza pioneered digital scales that strap onto bag handles and register the weight on the backlit LCD screen. The new mini model is just 5 inches long and only about 3 ounces, but accurately weighs up to 100 pounds. A reset button allows reweighing without turning the device off and on again, and an auto shutoff function conserves battery life. Runs on two watch batteries (included). The cell-phone-shaped device has a rubberized housing that is easy on the grip and is water-resistant. (Available for $24.85 at www.magellans.com; KT130; 1-800-962-4943)

    Graco's Alano FlipIt Travel System Stroller. Wouldn't it be nice if baby could look at mommy or daddy (and vice versa) when out in the stroller, instead of everybody's having to face the oncoming world? This stroller changes from face-to-face to forward-facing position with a flip of the reversible, height-adjustable handle. System includes the highly rated SnugRide Infant Car Seat with five-point harness and a stay-in-car base. (Available for $219.99 at www.babiesRus.com; 432618; 1-888-222-9787)
