Camping is all about resetting from our busy routines and spending time connecting with nature but that is not to say that we can’t enjoy some of the innovative commodities specifically designed to make our lives easier when on the move.

We list some of our favourite gadgets that are perfect to accompany us on our camping trips.

It is great to take a break from common luxuries at home and practice gratitude for what we have, but that can be done simultaneously with some useful products and gadgets.

Many of the additions give us more time and essentially enable us to enjoy our surroundings for longer.

What are the latest gadgets available for us to take travelling with us?

Wind Up Torch

Wind Up Animal Torch- Go Outdoors

Handy Heroes Wind Up Animal Torch

It is likely it’s something that you have heard of, but these torches could really save you during the night.

It is always great to ensure you have spare batteries but you can eliminate the risk of running out of power with a wind-up torch.

It is a great sustainable option and we have pinpointed one for the kids.

This animal wind-up torch can be part of their camping kit, they will enjoy powering up their tools and will be safe and visible with their own light.

We also recommend that you get a wind-up light for yourself or the tent too.

Power Bank

EC Technology Power Bank

It is not something that you want to be reliant on but our phones work as our emergency lifeline, research, music source and sometimes our torch.

You can now get multiple charges out of this power bank, it is better to go for something robust like this that has a reputation for lasting and also repeatedly charging your phone to full battery before having to charge the power bank itself.

What’s more, the bank itself can charge anything with a USB output, including a vape pen, iPod or outdoor camera.

It also has an impressive torch that could prove useful.

It will then keep your food warm for up to 60 minutes. This barbecue can be disposed of in a fire once you have finished.

Self Inflatable Mat

Deep Sleep XL Mat- Outwell

Deep Sleep XL Mat- Outwell

Something we repeatedly highlight is how important it is to buy something to elevate you from the ground.

Many last minute campers feel they can brave the ground conditions when sleeping but it isn’t the bumps on the floor that you should fear.

You want to stay insulated and protect yourself from the cold, the best way to do this is to elevate from the ground.

That is no problem at all with this self-inflating ground mat; once you unpack it from the bag it effortlessly inflates within seconds.

Solar Charger
