Summer 2017 Essential Travel Camping Tech
If you are heading out for a camping trip or road trip this summer you should step up your travel tech game. Check out this list for a few ideas on some essential travel and camping tech gear for this summer.
UE WONDERBOOM Super Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
When you head out on any camping trip, bringing along a Bluetooth speaker is a must. Whether it be looking from some tunes to listen to during the day, at the camp fire or tunning in to listen to the game, a good speaker is key. For this summer I would recommend the UE WONDERBOOM Super Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker.
Available on Amazon for $129.99 the UE speaker is available in black, red, orange and blue and offers 360-degree sound thanks to its cylindrical design.
The UE speaker offers up to ten hours of battery life and typical Bluetooth range of about 100 ft.
Why the this UE speaker though? The version of the speaker is "seriously waterproof" and will float thanks to its IPX7 rating.

SITPACK portable seat
Finding a good place to sit when on out and about hiking on a camping trip can be a challenge. With the SITPACK seat, you can mitigate this problem.
Weighing only 1.32 lbs and collapses down to the size of a 50cl can the SITPACK can hold up to 220.
You can pick up your own SITPACK directly from the the manufacturer here.
The SITPACK is currently avaiable for $60 USD
BioLite CampStove 2
The CampStove 2 is a portable wood burning stove that converts heat into electricity.
The CampStove 2 generates up to 50% more power output than the original CookStove while also containing a 2600 mAh battery. Something the first generation lacked.
Aside from producing clean and storable energy, the CampStove 2 can also be used for more conventional purposes such as cooking meals and boiling water using the Portable Grill and KettlePot add-ons.
The generator & power pack of the CampStove 2 contains USB Type-A ports for powering or charging your devices. It also contains 3 LED strips allowing you to keep tabs on fire strength, power output, and fan speed.
The CampStove 2 can be purchased directly from BioLite for $129.95 USD and qualifies for free shipping in Canada, the USA and Europe.
Anker PowerCore+ 20100
Having a portable battery pack is an essential pretty much all the time these days thanks to the bevy of devices we carry with us. When camping it is even more of a necessity.
The Anker PowerCore+ 20100 is one of my favorites thanks to the flexibility and power offered by the USB type C port on top of the two USB type A ports.
As the title states, the battery comes with a 20100 mAh battery which is enough to charge most phones 4-5 times over.
Thanks to Anker's "PowerIQ" and "VoltageBoost" technology the PowerCore+ 20100 offers rapid charging to most mobile phones and can also charge laptops like Apple's MacBook.
You can pick it up on Amazon down below.
Now, this one may not be essential, but it will be sure to be both useful and fun.
The AirSelfie is a pocket-sized drone with a 5-megapixel video camera. It only has a three minute flying time per charge and a range of about 20 meters but would make an excellent companion when hiking unknown terrain, allowing you to scout out the area and avoid getting into an undesirable position.
The AirSelfie will set you back about $280 USD, so it is far from inexpensive, but if used effectively, will be worth every penny.
You can learn more and pre-order the AirSelfie here.
