Bringing Lighting & Power Generating Devices
Heading out into the wilderness doesn’t need to be a totally rustic event, and power and lighting gear can come in very handy while camping, hiking or backpacking.
Lighting gear can include flashlights, lanterns and headlamps. All of these devices can be very useful for camping trips, whether you’re using them to safely get around camp after dark or for exploring caves during the day.
Power-wise, there are a few different things to consider. If you’re RV or car camping, then you may have access to an electrical outlet, and you can simply bring along a power strip to plug in your devices. However, if you’re camping in a more remote location, you’ll need to consider battery power or solar power.
A dead battery on one of your devices when backpacking can have serious consequences. To keep your electronic essentials powered up, solar’s the only way to go. Here, we explain why and introduce you to 8 awesome portable power-packers.
