It’s time to plan the annual family camping trip! You’re dreaming of fire-roasted hot dogs, fresh air, gorgeous views and plenty of s’mores. You’re taking off work to spend time with the kids, and you’re excited about their first big camp-out.
You’ve been waiting for summer to arrive, and now that it’s here, it’s time to think through some of the logistics. As you’re making your packing list, let us help you plan out your battery needs. Camping is one of the most vital times to have a reserve of extra batteries. Depending on how remote your location is, having plenty of extra batteries can make the difference between danger and safety.
Let’s start with the basics. One of the handiest things you will pack for your camping trip will be flashlights. Make sure that you have plenty for the entire family in case you end up without other sources of power. Likewise, you may want to pack a few battery-operated lanterns for evenings after the sun goes down. Both of these vital items will require batteries, and you’re going to want plenty of them! We can help you determine how many extras to pack based on family size.
Depending on what type of hiking and exploration you plan on doing, you may want to pack a headlamp and/or handheld GPS. Sometimes these systems take less common batteries- we can help you find ones that best fit your devices!
Of course, we also must cover any daily electronics that you’re bringing with you. We recommend having excellent batteries and extra chargers while traveling. If your cell battery is struggling, come let us check it out! We can help you determine if it needs a replacement. Likewise, it may be time to replace old phone chargers or buy an extra for the road. You don’t want to risk frayed cords or old batteries while traveling!
We believe that it’s always best to be prepared, especially when camping. Let us help you determine your battery needs now, and before you know it you’ll be relaxing by the campfire!
