(NewsUSA) – Americans spend a lot of time on the road and getting to work, be it in a car, on a train or on a bus.

In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average commute for Americans is 25 minutes. However, other studies peg higher-profile cities such as Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Atlanta and San Francisco at almost 60 hours per year.

If you’re not one of the lucky few who work from home, but instead log considerable hours getting from point A to point B for your job, the following accessories may help make your commute more productive, if not downright enjoyable.

Portable Brewing Mug

The coffee industry is being turned on its ear by companies coming out with battery-powered portable brewing systems. One current system holds 14 ounces of java and is temperature controlled by pushing a button on the cup. Coffee is brewed in three minutes and the mug can also be charged in your car by USB.

Handbag and Charger

In order to sustain an all-day charge without taking along a chunky block, portable battery packs are all the rage. For women, there are now purses and handbags that come equipped with a place to store a small charger that will keep your phone, tablet or e-reader charged all the day long.

Screen Glasses

According to a recent report by Kleiner Perkins analyst Mary Meeker, Americans spend 444 minutes each day staring at screens. This means that 95 percent of Americans are at risk for digital eye strain that causes dryness, itchiness and fuzzy vision, according to a recent report released by The Vision Council. To prevent further eye strain, commuters who use their laptop, smartphone or tablet in transit (or e-reader for that matter), might want to consider purchasing protective glasses that are engineered to block out the damaging high-energy, UV and artificial blue light that screens omit. These high-tech glasses can also be outfitted with your current prescription lens.

Smokeless Tobacco Accessories

For smokeless tobacco users, one of the more inconvenient aspects to enjoying your product of choice is the unsightly spit cup or bottle that you must carry around. To that end, FLASR (OTCQB: FLASR) has created a pocket-sized spittoon designed to allow users to open and shut it with just one hand, making it easy to use even while driving. The small size of the FLASR portable tobacco flask allows users to dip unobtrusively in public. It also fits in a cup holder.
