TLDR: The Freewrite Traveler Portable Writing Tool is a handy digital writing tool for handling all the writing work you need done, but without the distractions of a laptop.
The brain of a writer never turns off. Even when they aren’t working, they’re working, turning over words in their head, thinking through their next sentence, their next paragraph, their next project. It’s hardwired into their brains. It’s just what they do.
Of course, that gets a lot harder to do without a vessel to capture those thoughts whenever they occur. For many scribes, that receptacle is the trusty laptop, ready to crack only and take some dictation fairly quickly, but not always the most portable of devices.
And while smartphones and tablets are ok for short notes or some minor touchup work, it’s not terribly practical to write with those tiny interfaces.
That why the geniuses at Astrohaus came up with the nifty little Freewrite Traveler portable writing tool ($439 after code FREEWRITE20 from TNW Deals), designed to help the modern writer stay focused and maximize their productivity.
While undoubtedly smart, Astrohaus wasn’t alone in this brainstorm, with more than 2,500 backers on Indiegogo supporting its creation to the tune of almost $750,000.
Bigger than a traditional handheld device, but at about half the footprint of the average laptop, the Freewrite Traveler is a full service writing option, sporting a full-sized scissor switch keyboard optimized for typing with a satisfying ratta-tap-tap of its expertly calibrated keys. As for the E Ink display, it uses ambient light that doesn’t wash out in sunlight and is better for your eyes than those old standard computer screens.
Meanwhile, the Traveler is packing an internal flash memory that can hold up to 1 million pages of copy, or writers can ship their work off to the clouds courtesy of the Traveler’s WiFi connectivity. Even the battery is a champ, capable of serving up power for up to four weeks before needing a recharge.
Best of all, this keyboard is 100 percent distraction free. With no text alerts or browsers or constant notifications, writers can hone in their craft without getting sidetracked by all those other laptop features to keep your writing sharp and on point.
The Freewrite Traveler Portable Writing Tool is regularly priced at $499, but right now, it’s not only on sale for 10 percent off, but you can enjoy an extra $20 off the discounted price by using the code FREEWRITE20 when you check out. That drops the final price down to just $439.
