Being comfortable when camping helps ensure that your outdoor experience is memorable for the right reasons, and a big part of staying comfortable is having the right gadgets at hand. Gadgets make camping easy and fun and thanks to advances in technology, they just keep getting better and better. Along with your tent, the things to pack next camping trip include:
1. Portable shower
Who says you can’t stay clean and fresh when camping? Choosing a solar fueled portable shower is an affordable way to heat up to 20 litres of water for multiple showers. Simply hang from a tree and you can start your days with an exhilarating, warm shower.
2. Survival Tool Kit
An army knife has always been an essential item when spending time in the great outdoors, but these days, pocket knives are much more than they used to be. Survival tool kits offer everything you need should you get into trouble when camping, from a flashlight and pliers to a bottle opener and partially serrated blade.
3. Portable coffee maker
Coffee is the most widely consumed drink in the world and as much as you may hate to admit it, functioning early without it is a problem for many. Become a morning person by preparing a hot pot of coffee to welcome the day.
4. Solar charger
A solar charger is a must for outdoor lovers and Outbax’s 10 Amp Solar Charge Regulator is a great tool that recognises the correct charge needed for charging your battery. This not only ensures your battery the correct charge, but prolongs the life of the charge. It works with any solar panel that produces a charge of between 12V and 40V and offers a built in charge indicator to show you the stage of charge your battery is in.
5. Camp stove
With the range of camp stoves available these days, there is no reason why you can’t whip up a delicious meal when camping. No more junk food and snacks and instead, using a camp stove you can prepare meals such as chilli, pancakes, baked potatoes and of course, your freshly caught fish.
6. Filtration bottle
Hydration when camping is extremely important and when you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, you run the risk of running out of water. A filtration system removes all the microbiological waterborne pathogens, meaning a nutritious drink for you no matter the water source.
7. 2 in 1 camp bed
Make sleeping in a tent a comfortable experience with an inflatable bed and built in sleeping bag. Transporting a camp bed is lightweight and easy, packing your mattress, sleeping bag and pillow into one handy carry bag.
8. Outdoor camera
The mini HD Digital Camera Camcorder offered is designed specifically for the outdoors. It’s slim design makes transporting easy and its mounting kit allows you to quickly mount the device onto a helmet, vehicle or bicycle. It also comes with a waterproof case and waterproof function for up to 30m, meaning you can take your camera with you when skiing, swimming or surfing and then look back at all the fun you had.
9. Sonic Viewpad
Google Maps on your phone is great, but what happens when you don’t have access to 3G or wi-fi connection? AViewSonic Viewpad runs on Android 4.0 and comes with HD. It can even be used as a phone when a sim is inserted.
10. LED strip roll
Dustproof and waterproof super bright LED lights now come in a handy roll that can be strung out anywhere to create light when camping. Create a path at night or some light around the dinner table with a 3m adhesive back that makes installation quick and easy.
