demographics within the consumers,” he said.
The team is also
introducing a line of travel charging kits for both the iPhone and mini and
micro USB users. The Travelocity Tech
Travel Kit ($29.99) and Travelocity International Tech Travel Kit ($39.99) each

mini USB and micro USB devices.
The kits come with

version adds three international outlet converters.
Each kit comes
with the Travel Tech Case, a nylon, fleece-lined case meant for small tech
accessories. Strumeier told TWICE that a larger version meant for iPads and
e-readers is in the works.
