7 camping gadgets to make your life easier

Garmin GLO 2 GPS and GLONASS Receiver

While you might not necessarily think to pack a GPS device, you’ll be grateful for your purchase when navigating in the great outdoors. This one offers highly accurate location data, so it’s worth bringing it alongside your phone.

Don’t be fooled by the gadget’s basic look; it connects to both GPS and Russian GLONASS satellite receivers to update its position data 10 times per second. That’s up to 10 times faster than devices using GPS alone.

Using Bluetooth, you can easily view the navigation data on your phone, tablet or laptop while you’re out and about.

On a full charge, this little camping gadget will last for up to 13 hours, and you can top up the power with the included USB cable.

BigBlue 3 USB Ports 28W Solar Charger

Many of the best camping gadgets need electricity to function, so a portable charger or battery pack will come in handy for your trips away from home. A folding solar panel is one of the most sustainable options, providing a source of free, renewable energy as you go about your day.

This portable solar charger is 103cm long when opened, but folds up to measure just 28 x 19 x 4cm. It’s light enough to fit in your backpack, but you can also attach it to the outside of your bag to generate energy as you walk.

Also included in the pack are three USB ports and a Type-C cable for charging phones and tablets.

The LARQ Bottle PureVis

Dirty water can be unpleasant to drink and even cause illness, so being able to purify it can save you a lot of hassle. Enter the LARQ Bottle PureVis, the first self-cleaning water bottle on the planet.

Every two hours, this clever camping gadget uses patented UV-C technology to destroy up to 99% of bio-contaminants like E. coli. You can also press the button whenever you want to purify your water – it’ll be clean in just 60 seconds.

There are no disposable filters and there’s no BPA or plastic in the design. Plus, you can top up the one-month battery using a MicroUSB charging cable.

Choose between the 500ml and 740ml bottles, and the insulated and lightweight non-insulated models.
