THREE COOL THINGS: STAY POWERED UP
By Paul Strubell of Dirt Orcas – 9/22/17
This edition of Three Cool Things focuses on staying charged up while on the road. If you are overlanding or adventure riding these things will keep you powered up so you can continue to use your electronics even while off the grid.
- Goal Zero Venture 30 Recharging Kit – $169 – This all contained kit allows you to harness solar energy through rugged durable solar panels and convert that energy right into a small portable charging station. You can fully charge the battery pack directly from a USB in just 4 hours at home and take it with you into the elements and fully charge it in 9 hours of sunshine. it is also weather resistant so it’s more than ready for your camp experience. I find that this system is just the right size to share duty between my motorcycle trips and car camping expeditions.
- Barebones Living Forest Lantern – $50 – I love the added technology of modern rechargeable camping lights but I also really miss the nostalgia of the old gas lanterns. Enter this baby. With up to 80 hours of LED light in a vintage inspired package, you can’t really go wrong when you bust this out around camp.
- Mophie Juice Wireless Pack – $58.99 – The phone case that will add 60% more battery life to your phone wirelessly. While the first two items focused on recharging your devices, this one focuses on extending the life of your batter while you are actually using it.
