As much as we want to get away when we’re outdoors – we don’t want to miss memories or get lost. You never know when the opportunity for the perfect selfie may come along. We use our phones, GPS and other devices for a lot more than Facebook and text messaging, so we need a way to keep them charged while on the go.
Heading off grid for multiple days’ presents its own set of challenges in terms of keeping your electronics charged, and the death of a cell phone is an event to be mourned.
