Because it’s made of flexible silicone the Travelamp (available in both a lamp and lantern version) can be easily smooshed into a corner of a suitcase while you’re travelling. And it’s easy to install on most smartphones, and even easier to remove when you need to take a call. It will also sell for just $8 (£5.13) when available sometime in October, making it one of those impulse buys that could end up being an invaluable travel accessory. [Fred & Friends]
