Why Having Portable Power While in Outdoor Adventure is Important

By Mia Clarke

Gone are days when camping was a way of getting away from daily life trappings. Nowadays you have to keep yourself updated no matter where you are. For you to keep being informed on regular events you need electronic devices such as smartphones. And for these gadgets to keep you posted, they must be fully charged. Therefore it’s indisputable on your camping adventure you need portable power.

What are the benefits of portable power?

There are various reasons why you should have portable power in your camping activities listed by our friends over at InvertPro who are keen campers.

 

  1. Lighting

For sure you will never have enough lighting sources in your camp. If you think you got enough, think again! Devices such as smartphones have got powerful LED lights that can be used as torches in your camp. You can also use apps such as ITorch4 and Flashlight. Imagine your devices are off and your tent is engulfed with darkness?

  1. First Aid

Devices neither apply First Aid nor are a replacement for mandatory First Aid Kit but phones have got apps that can help in case you need guidance and advice. Apps such as St. Johns Ambulance app have detailed first aid techniques for users. Assume your phone is off and your camp is several miles away from a health facility!

 

  1. Emergencies

Portable powers are essential for emergencies such as making an emergency phone call or using GPS for directions. Mobile powers ensure your devices are on when you need them most.

 

How can you keep your device powered?

Now that you have known the value of portable power, which devices can keep your device powered?

  1. Battery Packs/Power Banks

    -These devices have a rechargeable battery and USB ports for passing power. They can extend your phone’s battery life for an extended period. Powerbanks can carry up to 60,000 MaH, or Milli-Ampere-Hours which can charge multiple gadgets like tablets and phones. Getting a high-power power bank is essential in today’s times when we just can’t get disconnected too much from our gadgets. Get power banks that can provide power for your devices for as long as you would be staying outdoors.

  2. Miniature Solar Panels

    – The larger the panel, the more power it can give. These panels are best to power up lights.

  3. Power Inverters

    These power inverters are usually connected to car batteries, converting DC power into AC power. These can be used to power up devices like laptops, portable DVD players, and even small heating devices for water and light cooking.

 

Conclusion

Camping is a fun activity. It should allow you to experience a new environment and disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city. As much as we want to disconnect, today’s era may not permit us to do so absolutely. Some electronic gadgets to stay connected and entertained are still necessary. Also, a lot of devices are already portable and compatible with devices that provide power. These devices can work in your favor, as they make a lot of camping activities so much more convenient for you. Hence Why Having Portable Power While in Outdoor Adventure is Important…

    Excellent tips here for camping. What would we do without all this equipment these days. A portable battery pack goes everywhere with me even on a day trip in the city as my phone’s battery has a mind of its own.

    I must say that camping trips and outdoor hikes are more enjoyable with having mini solar panels. It can make your life easier without having to worry about access to a reliable power supply. There are many options available too to suit your needs.

    Having a portable charger while camping sounds like a brilliant idea, I couldn’t imagine being in the woods without it. I’ve seen one too many movies to be paranoid :). I will be saving this post for later, thanks for the tips.

    I can’t camp without a portable charger. Having one with a solar panel also makes it so that I can keep camping without having to find a charger for my charger. I use the Revel Gear Day Tripper pack which recharges my phone 3 or more times. I also have their Trail Hound string lights which creates a really nice atmosphere and lights up the night beautifully. Great writeup!

    I got this amazing power bank a few years back which has like 7 charges for an iphone. I bring it everywhere I might need more power – camping, on flights, when staying at hotels & their sockets are far away from the bed…

    Ever since we got our first power bank I realized how cool it is and how important it is to still have it. It gives a lot of freedom and provides more travel options. As a frequent cycling traveler having maps and generally internet all the time is very useful, portable power source is very useful to me.
