    I had to get a new phone. It's, again, a Motorola, but it's got the USB-C connector. Now, my EDC consists of several USB-C adapters to accommodate all of the other gear/cords I already carried.

    I have time to tell but not to show.

    On my person..
    LG K7 phone + charger
    Nitecore EA1 flashlight

    in my backpack
    ASUS 15" laptop (used for work)
    PNY 16GB flashdrive
    Klein NCVT-3 non contact voltage tester. As a former IT guy, I'm the default "electronics/wiring" guy in the department. My father is an electrical engineer, he taught me to test what is hot and what is not at an early age. It's $20 bucks or so and easy to carry.

    Water-Rat: There are more of us like this on here than you'd think. I use a LG 'Revere' flip phone. Never fails me. I just refuse to back myself into a corner that would mean paying data fees for a smart phone and doubling my cell phone bill. I have a couple of flash drives but never carry them. No need. I have an iPod Classic that is fully loaded @ about 140 GB of music -- all based on actual physical CD's that I have. WHEN I carry earbuds, they're a $10 pair from CVS. Usually the iPod sits in the car -- using it on random means I don't need to use any of the streaming music services in the car.

    L'chaim!

    If my work did not reimburse me for all but $10 on my cell phone plan, I would still have a flip phone. Since I am making frequent trips to Toronto, my iphone does make the traveling more manageable.

    My favorite phone of all time was my old Motorola Razr V3.

    I carry a small Maxpedition organizer (micro or mini??) as my "electronics kit" in my EDC bag that has the following:
    • USB Plug-in phone charger
    • USB micro cord
    • USB iphone cord
    • USB 12 volt cigarette lighter charger
    • Slim, credit card style power bank...not a huge one, just enough to charge my phone once...2500mah??
    • Audio cord with 1/8" jacks and two 1/4" adapters
    • Earbud headphones
    • 64GB USB flash drive
    This takes care of my daily audio/visual/tech needs 99% of the time. I have a similar kit that I use for travel that is beefed up a bit with a much bigger power bank, and a 3ft HDMI cable (love hijacking the TV in hotel rooms to watch whatever I want to watch and not what they offer). If the in-room WIFI is good enough, it is like I've never left home! :)

    All the tech I carry is my iPad, bose qc 25 headphones, and I recently picked up a lithium ion battery charging port thingy.. it's a little bulky but has enough juice for 2.5 charges before it has to be recharged itself.

    Hmm, over the years, I try to carry fewer items and and certainly less weight. So electrical gear now looks like:

    On person:
    - iPhone 6s
    - Photon keychain flashlight

    In bag (a small and light Tom Bihn Co-Pilot):
    - Apple MacBook 12" plus an iPad mini OR just a iPad Pro 10" plus keypad and pencil. More often than not its now just the iPad Pro unless I'm certain I really need a full laptop. Mostly I can do as much on the iPad pro.
    - Small 2.4A mains charger (Now I use a MU System travel charger as it is light and comes with a folding UK mains plug plus interchangeable Euro and US plugs). Charges all the devices including the MacBook (if a bit slowly).
    - USB to micro USB cable plus Apple's micro USB to Lightning adapter.
    - USB to USB C cable (for MacBook charging).
    - Small ZebraLight torch and a couple of spare batteries (CR123).
    - Finally, I've recently taken to carrying a Kindle paper white. I know I can use any of the Apple devices to read but it's so neat and light, charge lasts ages so doesn't run down the phone / pad and I prefer reading books from the white screen.
