The RinseKit gets an upgrade with more capacity and a water heater

When the original RinseKit was first introduced in 2016 it was hailed as a great addition to any outdoor enthusiasts’ gear closet. The device made it easy to carry a pressurized tank of water with you anywhere you go, allowing for a quick shower at the campsite, giving the dog a bath in the backyard, or just washing down dirty gear. Best of all, the RinseKit uses only the water pressure it generates when connected to a faucet or spigot to provide its steady stream of water, not requiring batteries or a water pump of any kind. Now, a second- generation model is available, and it brings some much-appreciated upgrades to the device.

The new RinseKit Lux Tote is a soft-sided version that functions similarly to the original, but with a few nice new tricks up its sleeve. For starters, the Lux offers 50 percent more capacity, allowing users to carry up to three gallons of water with them where ever they go. The Lux also features a removable tank that allows it to double as a cooler too, making it a more versatile piece of gear all around.

When introducing the Lux, RinseKit also unveiled some interesting new accessories that can extend its functionality a bit further. The most intriguing of those is the Hot Rod water heater, which draws power from the 12-volt DC port (cigarette lighter) in a car to warm the water temperature up to a level that is perfect for taking a hot shower. The heater includes a timer to automatically shut it off after a preset period of time and an eight-foot long cord that allows it to reach a fair distance from the vehicle that it is plugged into.


The Lux and the Hot Rod aren’t the only new products from RinseKit either. The RinseKit Plus is a new model that resembles the original version, but also comes with expanded storage capacity and a longer spray-time. It is compatible with the water heater, as well as the new Pressure Booster Pump, which gives users the ability to add extra water pressure to a tank without access to a standard faucet or spigot.

All of the new products are available now with the RinseKit Lux and RinseKit Plus priced at $160 and $100, respectively. The Hot Rod water heater costs $70 while the Pressure Booster Pump is $35. Find out more not he RinseKit website.

I had written off bicycles, until e-bikes unlocked an entire world for me
Himiway C5

I have a lot working against me when it comes to riding a traditional bicycle: collapsed foot arches, bad knees, and nerve issues that extend into my pelvic floor and make it challenging for me to sit for any extended time on a standard bicycle seat. For all those reasons, I gave up on any chance of comfortably bicycling as an adult.

But when Himiway offered to let me try its new C5 e-bike, which features a motorcycle-style saddle that is both wider and longer than the average bicycle seat, I reconsidered. I cautiously hoped it could improve my ability to enjoy bike riding. However, I didn't expect it to completely change my life for the better.
The making of an e-bike guy
From the Engwe M20 to the Ride1up Revv1, e-bikes have embraced the motorcycle aesthetic, and the larger seats that go with them. For most riders, it’s just a cool look. For me, it opened a whole new world.

I ditched my car for a month of e-biking. Here’s what I learned
Aventon Abound rider with plants and store bought items on road.

Since settling into my life as an "e-bike guy," I've been testing new bikes left and right. So when someone suggested trying to replace my car with an e-bike for a month, it didn't take much to convince me. With a growing variety of bikes at my disposal, it sounded exciting to challenge myself and to find out just how much of my normal routine could be maintained with two wheels and a battery.

Though I live in a rural county just outside of Atlanta, my townhome community is located right beside a commercial strip packed with restaurants, department stores, banks, and gyms. So while I've historically used my car to get around, I've always known I could easily reach anything I need on foot or by bike in a mere few minutes if needed. Now, it was time to put that knowledge into action.

That's the perfect time to throw on TORRAS' COOLiFY Cyber, a cutting-edge wearable air conditioner. Wait, what? That's right, it slips right over your neck to keep you cool and comfortable.
