In today’s technology-driven world, it’s hard to be without an electronic gadget. At a minimum, you have your phone with you wherever you go so you can be reached in the event of an emergency. Even if you plan to have a technology-free camping experience, chances are, you’ll still bring one mobile device with you for communication purposes.

Here are some ways to keep your items charged while tent camping:

Spare Batteries.

Among the easiest options for keeping your electronics working around the clock is to carry two to three spare batteries if your phone has a removable power supply. Keep the fresh batteries away from the drained ones so you know which ones to charge once you’re home. You won’t have to source power while you’re away if you have backup batteries available.

Battery Packs.

These devices, once charged, provide power to your phone and tablet rather quickly. Keep in mind that you’ll need to plug into a power source to charge the battery pack itself. If it loses its charge, it won’t replenish a drained battery on your electronic devices.

Solar Chargers.

Unlike battery packs which get their power from electricity, solar chargers get their power from the sun. By leaving the charger outdoors in direct sunlight, you’re able to give it the power to charge your devices easily. The larger the solar charger, the bigger the electronic gadget it powers.


This type of charger runs on lithium batteries and can successfully keep small appliances and larger electronics running for hours. If you’re planning on camping for long periods of time and need to use a computer to plan your next travel destination or to make a few extra dollars to get you where you need to go, you might consider making an investment in a generator.

A fully charged phone and tablet battery gives you the freedom to enjoy your camping trip without apprehension. You don’t need to worry about not being reachable in the event of an emergency. Instead, you can focus on creating memories with your camping companions knowing that you’re able to answer a call from a loved one or a friend at a moment’s notice thanks to a battery supply that is at 100%.
