Balega Hidden Comfort - Balega
5.0 out of 5 stars So comfortable., 11 Sep 2014
Was looking for a sock and saw DC Rainmaker (respected blogging triathlete) uses them - he says "No questions, these socks…forever. So soft, just love them. I’ve never had blisters with them. Ever."

They are also very easy to slip on.
Kephalonia - Ithaca anavasi by Anavasi

Duracell CEF23 Traveller Battery Charger with USB &hellip by Duracell
Previous one died after a few years. However it is a great charger so didn't hesitate to replace it with the same model. Charges up to 4 AAs or AAAs, any number at a time (i.e. don't have to be in pairs). Individual charging lights turn green as each cell reaches full charge. Being able to swap out the plug for the euro one is useful. However as a travel charger it is quite bulky. The ability double up as a USB device wall charger, or a backup phone charger (charges device from fully charged AAs) makes it versatile. I had some batteries I was ready to ditch because they wouldn't charge effectively in an old charger but this brought them back to life.
