Sterling W – My Current Travel Vlog Gear (DEC 2020)

I get asked what gear i use for vlogging, so I made video and post to answer this question. I typically travel light on my gear and have started to experimented with traveling lighter with less cameras.

I now bring my Samsung Note 20 Ultra ( https://amzn.to/37U6iu2 ) smartphone and my Insta360 ONE R ( https://amzn.to/2Kl9iYo ) as my cameras. I use Samsung Galaxy BUDS+ Plus ear buds ( https://amzn.to/2JQxEJK )as my personal microphone, as both the Samsung Note 20 and Insta360 ONE R are able to use them as microphone inputs through Bluetooth connect.

For supports, I used the same Sunpak metal selfie stick ( https://amzn.to/3nfBF8V )for over 8 years, it was originally for my GoPro. I recently got a new COMAN flexible rubberized tripod online with ball mount( https://amzn.to/2JCLFtR ). I needed a small travel flexible tripod for my my vlogging with my phone and camera to mount my camera or light anywhere. My most recent new support gear is a Moza Mini P 3 axis gimbal stabilizer ( https://amzn.to/2Wbpaza ) which is able to handle cameras up to 900 g in weight. Its very advanced and i am still learning how to use it.

I love the ball head mount. Its all metal base and ball head is very well built. It holds my 2 pound DSLR as well as my cell phone camera without sliding. The top base mount has a 1/4 inch mount and a hidden fold out smart phone holder. The smartphone holder is large enough for my 6.9 inch Samsung Note S20 Ultra to fit in as well my other cell phones.

Costco Type S 12v Jump Starter (8,000 mAh Power Bank – USB C) $49 UNBOXING

Costco has a new Type S 12v Jump Starter for $49 (on sale, normally $59). Its also a 8,000 mAh Power Bank with USB C and USB A connections for 2.4A charging. There are other 12v jump starters and larger power bank combos online: https://amzn.to/2JlQ44d . Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases. For other car accessories and gift ideas, visit SterlingW Amazon Store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/sterlingw

I bought this Type S Jump Starter to replace my 2016 WinPlus Jumpstarter was starting to lose charge. I guess the lifespan for these are about 4 years for replacement. At $49 it was a good deal and my 2016 version saved me several times during various roadtrips and at work when a co-worker needed a jump.

The new features of this 2020 Type S 12 volt jump starter was the IP64 water resistance, the digital display instructions on the side of the device, and the USB C (input and output) which is my typical standard charging plug for most of my devices. It does come with a 12v USB car charger and a micro USB charge cable. The USB fast charging at 2.4a is a good feature. The primary use of this will still be as a car jumper, as travel a lot on the road during the weekend and for road trips.

Per the instructions, it needs to be over 50% charged in order to jump a car and it needs to be charged every 2-3 months to keep the battery life. So I the unit was made in June 2020 (100%) and now its October 2020 with 60% charge, so it basically lost 10% a month or perhaps it was only 80% charged after being built. Any ways, I normally charge every 1-2 month so this should last me another 4 years.

Costco FEIT Rechargeable LED Pivot Head Flashlight + Head Lamp Bundle $19 REVIEW UNBOXING

Costco FEIT Rechargeable LED Pivot Head Flashlight and Head Lamp Bundle for $29. There are other powerful rechargeable LED pivot flashlights ( https://amzn.to/2Cff5KY ) and powerful 1000 lumen headlamps ( https://amzn.to/3hxrxWt ) online. This bundle comes with 2 pivot head 500 / 250 lumen flashlights with clips and magnetic base and a really powerful 1000 / 500 /250 lumen head lamp with different color modes. Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases.

For high powered LED flash lights on my Amazon list. Visit: https://www.amazon.com/shop/sterlingw

This flashlights come with clips making it convenient to clip it to a jacket or cap and the pivot head with magnetic base can be used on metal surfaces and angled pretty practical for preparing you bag for hiking,camping, road side automotive kit, or for the tool box. I prefer head lamps to free up my hand when working.

It uses Micro USB to charge the battery. While i like rechargeable flash lights, i would have preferred if it was USB C as in my previous video i have move to standardize all my devices to USB C. I got a RovyVon ( https://amzn.to/33lFyzM ). The first one is the RovyVon Aura A23 about $49 ( https://amzn.to/38WnkpQ ) which is less than 3 inches and outputs 1000 lumens of light from powerful Cree LED. The second one is the tiny RovyVon A3 about $29( https://amzn.to/2U8J3W7 ).

Why switch to rechargeable USB?
Similar to the XiaoMi 1000 Lumen LED flashlight ( https://amzn.to/2D1FBVj ) i reviewed earlier ( https://youtu.be/DNApf8x-x24 ), I wanted to make a move to have all my devices and flashlights go towards a USB rechargeable platform. Its so that i can carry one primary power supply or wall charger and not have to worry about battery form factor. For example: if my 5.11 LED EDC pen light ( https://amzn.to/2TSyojx ) which i carry runs out of power, I will need a new AAA alkaline dry cell to replace it. If my RovyVon A23 flash light runs out of power, i just need to plug it into my 26,800 power bank ( https://amzn.to/38SMh5B ) to still have continuous light. Great for camping and emergency preparedness.
